Beginning the fourth story arc of THE WILD STORM. Jenny Mei Sparks has been around for over a century. She's seen a lot of things. Enough bad stuff that she took 20 years off to get drunk. And now she's back, and she has a plan. The problem is that other people have plans, too, and one of them is about reducing the population of Earth by around 90 percent.

    We only have five issues left after this one. It's been a hell of a ride and this is a fine chapter of the book indeed. The last panel is a quiet one but is also one hell of a cliffhanger. I'm sure this is going to end spectacularly. Read Full Review

    The Wild Storm returns with… wit! Charm! Gorgeous artwork! And (finally) answers! After having been a bit underwhelmed by the last few issues, this one sets the stage very effectively for the series' conclusion. Beautifully crafted by both writer and art team, this is exactly what I wanted from the series' return. Read Full Review

    The issue also offers two crucial pieces of information about Jenny Mei Sparks including her origins (not the spirit of any century) and a trip to Mars and delivers the first appearance of the final two authoritative figures who are likely to play a large role in how events unfold. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Jan 23, 2019

    Writer Warren Ellis and artist Jon Davis-Hunt continue their consistent, wonderful brilliance once again this month. Issue #19 is the final act of the slowest burn sci-fi, tech thriller in recent memory. Like every other damn chapter in this frustratingly overlooked gem, #19 asks a fair amount from it's readers. Do you have a stupendous memory for plot? Is your patience high functioning? Ellis and company have built a comic book world so rich, so deep, that dozens of series can (and likely will) spin out from this. Will the conclusion of Wild Storm be as satisfying as the journey? Maybe. Maybe not. But that is not the point of this run now is it? Read Full Review

    Another excellent addition to another great Warren Ellis book, with fantastically detailed art. This is a series that everyone should give a shot. Read Full Review

    While the title reads pretty dense at times " like most other books from Warren Ellis " it's quite entertaining, at the very least. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jason Segarra Jan 23, 2019

    It's great to have answers, and they were definitely needed this late in the game. There's little getting around the feeling, however, that this was a (much needed) info dump. I enjoyed the story and the unique artwork, but this information may have been better spread out rather than all shared across the span of eight pages. Still, the worst day with the Wild Storm is better than most books on the shelf, and this is an important part of the larger storyline Ellis is telling. Read Full Review

    The Wild Storm #19 is a fantastic comic. If youve not been reading the Wild Storm there likely wont be a better jumping on point than here. And if youve been here from the start then this issue will surely rekindle all the interest in the series that may have dissipated over the past months that the series has been absent from comic book shelves.
