    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Apr 24, 2019

    It's been a long wait, but this issue's gathering of The Authority is handled with all the spectacular and dramatic aplomb for which I'd been hoping. Ellis' script is its customary wry self, but this is, more than anything, Jon Davis-Hunt's show and, my, does he deliver! An outstanding installment of an already outstanding series.

    The story is exciting and the art is just perfect. The writing by Ellis is fast and character driven. The art is incredibly exciting. You can't ask for a better package than this. I'll be reading right up until the very last page! Read Full Review

    The issue also features Jacklyn King putting Angelia's tech to good use when someone shows up for her as well as it appears the gloves are completely off in the battle between Skywatch and I.O. with only the Authority to step in and save the world. Must-read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Apr 24, 2019

    Warren Ellis' Wild Storm is a comic book alone on shelves. No other title out there - at least to my limited knowledge - is remotely this well-paced, written, or drawn like this one. The relaunch or reinvention of the "wildstorm universe" has been a joy to read, but it feels like a title flying way, way below the comic community's radar and that is kind of a shame. Enjoyed in trade or issue to issue, this is a fantastic series and one that I hope DC (with Ellis in a prime position) is prepared to spin off for years to come. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 24, 2019

    With only two issues to the end, it's hard to see how this epic two-year-long reinvention of the Wildstorm universe will wrap up in any satisfying way by the end. There are dozens of characters in so many places and many of them have only started to interact. But when Ellis and Davis-Hunt cut loose, their art and the pacing are spectacular. Read Full Review
