You can never go home again, but John Lynch needs to go somewhere to begin the last act of his life. Jack Hawksmoor never really had a home, especially since he became something other than human.  As the war between IO and Skywatch gets hot, Marc Slayton has somewhere for Lynch to go, and Jenny Sparks may have a new home for Jack Hawksmoor...and Angela Spica.

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Nov 2, 2018

    A reasonably good issue in a mixed series. Ellis and Davis-Hunt are getting incredibly close to the finish line, and that can be felt within the story. Worth checking out if youre already deep into this series. Read Full Review

    This is one of the best consistently great creative teams out there. This book has kept me enthralled from the very beginning. It's tops. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 7, 2018

    While Lynch's fight provides most of the issue's action (yet another fight the former head of I.O. manages to walk away from), and some terrific action panels from Jon Davis-Hunt, Angie's move to join Jenny and company, and Shen‘s magical healing of Jack Hawksmoor, pushes the comic forward to one more step to offering us a new version of the Authority. Although they are still missing a couple of heavy hitters, it looks like the real fun can begin as we seem to be coming closer and closer to the world meeting Jenny Mei Sparks and her friends for the first time. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Patrick Lagua Nov 8, 2018

    An exposition-heavy issue that nonetheless entertains. This issue whets the appetite for what is sure to be an explosive and violence-laden final act for Ellis maxi series reboot of the Wildstorm universe. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Oct 31, 2018

    Wild Storm is a great title. It may not appeal to general readers because of a glacially slow build, but the pace is one of the reasons the alien-tech thriller is such a pleasure to read. There are fully fleshed out characters and real stakes being constructed. A brilliant comic at eighteen issues with a final act that is sure to be an amazing arc. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Oct 31, 2018

    Yeah, it's as good as it ever was. I'm glad to get some answers and see a bit of a method to the madness. That being said, bring on the Kherabim/Daemonite war! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Oct 31, 2018

    With customary aplomb, Ellis and Davis-Hunt continue moving their pieces judiciously around the board, while throwing us a confrontation between Marc Slayton and John Lynch that is as beautiful as it is pointless. The new Authority proto-team is exciting and seeing Marlowe's wild CAT about to leap into action is always great, but I really hope the next arc delivers on all this set-up in a suitably dramatic and exciting way. All that said, this is still one of the best comics out there right now. Read Full Review

    Even when at its weakest, "The Wild Storm" is still a series you should be reading. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Oct 31, 2018

    After so many issues of introduction, The Wild Storm seems to have finally reached its destination. The players are named and sides are set. Even as this issue focuses on framing the tension is palpable and promises exciting things to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 31, 2018

    As for me, I can stick with a while longer. But if it doesn't resolve itself in some manner soon, I will probably have to bail on it indefinitely. I hate to do that, but after some much confusion and misdirection, it's easy to run out of fresh things to say. Read Full Review
