Skywatch intensifies its preparation for war, increasing its attacks on the planet. For some of these conflict zones, Skywatch's greatest threat is not IO or conventional forces, but the people who escaped from its own experimentation camps. And the four people in London whom it knows little about, but who are preparing to take steps to alter the balance of the world...

    As satisfying as it is, The Wild Storm is a great series again. As it nears closer to its conclusion both Ellis and Davis-Hunt emphasise why they work so well together and why they were the right creative team for this book. A must for action fans. Read Full Review

    The last line is a little girl asking in a colorful way just what happened. I laughed out loud at that line. It was wonderful. The whole issue was. We only have four more issues after this. I'm sad that is the case. But I'm going to enjoy the hell out of what is remaining. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Feb 20, 2019

    Ellis and Davis-Hunt continue to deliver sci-fi superheroics with considerable aplomb. While the focus is clearly on Apollo and Midnighter this time around, there are interesting signs that, for very different reasons, neither Miles Craven nor Henry Bendix is quite as invulnerable as they like to think. The sense of things building to a conclusion is palpable. Whether that conclusion is satisfying remains to be seen, of course, but, if the evidence of this issue is anything to go by, I don't think there's anything to worry about. Read Full Review

    Wild Storm #20 is plain fun and fantastic. The reintroduction of Midnighter and Apollo is perfection in Big Two comic booking form. I cannot recommend this title enough. As we hurdle towards the conclusion of this title and the inevitable return of The Authority. Buckle up readers, the bombast is going to make ye heads spin & mind's race. Read Full Review

    Other items of note, due to the fight Jenny Mei Sparks makes an important discovery which implications are only foreshadowed here, and tensions at I.O. bring a new player into the field (one not too shy about dropping bodies or creating havoc simply to make a point). It will be interesting to see where both these threads lead, but for now we can simply bask in the awesome of two more authoritative heroes kicking some serious ass. Must-read. Read Full Review

    Wild Storm #20 is a suspenseful, action packed, science fiction issue with a touch of romance that leaves the townspeople questioning What the %$#@ just happened? Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jason Segarra Feb 20, 2019

    Yeah. To be honest, The Wild Storm is never NOT good, so these reviews all tend to be comparing a single stitch to a tapestry. This week's action-heavy outing is fun and welcome after the super dense exposition of issue #19, but it's also not up there with the series' best to date. As this story comes to an end, I look forward to the team resuming their well preserved balance between Davis-Hunt's exhilarating action sequences and Ellis' compelling narrative. Read Full Review

    The Wild Storm is entering the final act of its initial twenty-four issue run and it's been picking up momentum in recent months " partially due to the arrival of two fan-favorite characters, Apollo and Midnighter. Read Full Review

    This issue almost moves uncomfortably fast, but on the bright side, you likely won't be bored with it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Feb 20, 2019

    Itis so painfully obvious to me that this story would work better in film, inwhich case, let Ellis hump it through Hollywood looking for backers. Amazon,Netflix, Hulu, ANYBODY to keep him from foisting this movie-presented-in-comic-book-formon the comic book reading audience. Read Full Review
