What was Project Thunderbook? What did John Lynch do to the Thunderbook experimental subjects? Why did he shut it down and scatter them across America? Why isn't Thunderbook subject Gloria Spaulding aging? Why do people act like she's an alien? Well...alien is exactly what they made her at Thunderbook.

    This issue is awesome both in writing in art. Kudos to the creative team for telling one hell of an original story. Read Full Review

    My praise for this series continues. What other comics often fail to accomplish because of compressed storytelling, this title excels at with a plot and a world that unfolds with each panel. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Aug 15, 2018

    Look if you're not on the Wild Storm train yet, you're doing yourself a disservice. It's an ornate and dense read at times, but this is one of (if not the) best written and drawn series out there today. Issue #16 does a great job of adding to that tapestry, continuing to create intrigue for a series that has offered more questions than answers. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure this series comes together as a whole yet, but over the last few issues it's become a very exciting read. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Sam Corner Aug 18, 2018

    This issue features the welcome return of Angie Spica and the introduction of Gloria Spaulding. Consistently impressive art work and great characters ensure The Wild Storm is one of the best sci-fi books, however, the plot continues to advance slightly slowly. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 1, 2018

    Meanwhile the threat of the increased conflict between I.O. and Skywatch continues to be the looming threat likely to finally bring these threads together. Better hurry Angie, the world is going to need you sooner rather than later. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Aug 15, 2018

    For the first time in a long while, I find myself a little disappointed with a Wild Storm issue. While Davis-Hunt's artwork is characteristically excellent and Ellis continues to write his characters beautifully, an injection of urgency and drama is needed along with a clearer idea of just what the threat facing our incipient superhero teams is. I still trust Ellis and I feel almost churlish saying this, but I'd like a little more zip (or maybe even zap) to go with the meticulous and intriguing world-building. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Aug 16, 2018

    Due to the running timer on the covers, The Wild Storm always reads as building to its conclusion in a deliberate way. Each interaction plays as essential to the series' endgame, as players like Jenny Sparks and Angela Spica gradually get pulled into contact with one another; a restrained sequence bolstered by Jon Davis-Hunt's formalism and precision.

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 15, 2018

    Amazingly,this issue is not as confusing as previous installments. Its basically threepairs of characters, all in conversation. Kinda hard to mess that up. How thesefive people (because one of them is used twice) come together in the overallscheme remains to be seen. But, you could say that about any given issue ofthis meandering series.

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Aug 16, 2018

    An entertaining issue in which not very much happens. Theres more than enough to keep readers invested but if they look beyond the dialogue they might see that the issue does nothing other than drag them along until next month. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Aug 15, 2018

    The series is now officially two-thirds of the way done, and while the plotlines are starting to merge, I almost feel like we're not any closer to figuring out what's going on then a few months ago. Read Full Review
