    Warren Ellis and Jon Davis-Hunt are one of the best creative teams currently working together in comic books. This book is sure to be a classic. It's been an interesting and downright strange time. I can't wait to read it all together. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Mar 21, 2019

    Very much a character-driven installment this time around with even relatively minor characters like Lauren Pennington getting their moment to shine, this issue is big on relationships and the slow unfolding of plot, but there's an undercurrent of urgency and menace making itself felt too. Davis-Hunt's art – his panel progression and layout; the emotional subtlety of his facial expressions – is, as always, exemplary. The best sci-fi superhero comic on the market is still, after 21 issues, absolutely worth your money and time. Read Full Review

    The art of course is flawless and wonderful so as the slow build in plot smolders we can all sit back gobsmacked at the genius visuals of Jon Davis-Hunt. Last page...to be continued...that's it. Twenty-one chapters down and only four more to go. Read Full Review

    Yeah, it's still really good. Developing the character of both Jenny Sparks and Lauren Pennington is a welcome sight, even this late in the series. Shoot, we even got a bit of a look into the secret life of IO Assassin Ben Santini. That all being said, I want to see this conflict get rolling, solve a few mysteries, and build to an end worthy of the world that Ellis and Davis-Hunt have built to this point. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, this story is getting all the pieces in place for an epic showdown, but this issue feels more like an extended group therapy session. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Mar 21, 2019

    The Wild Storm #21 is a good issue that fails to take the series any further than last months offering. A necessary part in the grander narrative that slows the pace perhaps too much for some readers. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Mar 20, 2019

    You're free to disagree with me, and call me an unsophisticated philistine with no comprehension of A-R-T. Pardon me for saying it, but on the list of things comic books are, "art" is dead last. But if art is in the eye of the beholder, then comic books to me are entertainment, and this series fails to entertain me. Read Full Review

    For a book nearing the end of it's run, it's getting pretty anti-climactic, bordering on the edge of stale. Read Full Review
