The storm of accidents, deaths, mistakes, confusion and anger has led to this. Miles Craven has lost his grip and Henry Bendix has lost his mind. Angie Spica's journey is ending. And so is life on Earth.

    If the series can maintain this level of momentum, DC Comics may have an entirely new universe of super-heroic characters for the next 100 years. Superman debuted more than 80 years ago, and it's long past due that the super-hero genre be re-invented. Read Full Review

    VerdictThe Wild Storm #23 is a fantastic prelude to the finale of what has been a great series. All creators involved have crafted something fantastic out of the WildStorm universe of the 90s. With one issue left its sure to be Wild as New York becomes the battlefield between Skywatch, IO and our characters caught in the middle. Read Full Review

    The last panel with Bendix just killed me. I don't want to spoil it but it's a hell of a last panel to end the comic on. I'm sad this will be over come next issue. It's been great. And if this issue is any indication, I have no idea where it is we will end up. Read Full Review

    As might be expected, there's a certain amount of set-up for next issue's finale in this month's story, but there's a fair amount of action, too. Throw in some great character moments and you've got an issue that continues to deliver intelligent, engrossing and exceptionally entertaining super-powered action. Unreservedly recommended.

    While Shen is able to stop two loose canons from attacking New York, there are plenty of others out there still under Bendix's control. The cold war between Skywatch and I.O. has finally erupted. Looks like a job for an Authority. Must-read. Read Full Review

    The stakes rise yet again when an army of Kheran experiments are unleashed on New York and the battle begins anew. Knowing that this is essentially the end of act one makes this issue read very differently and it's a compelling story overall. Read Full Review

    There's still a lot to conclude heading into The Wild Storm #24 and the last few sequences slow things down considerably to reassemble the pieces, but the tension and promise of an enormous New York City showdown cannot be tempered much. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jason Segarra May 29, 2019

    Overall, this is a fine, mostly necessary entry into the larger Wild Storm universe. Character motivations were aligned, intrigue was created, and now we have a reason for (most of) our heroes to band together and do some superheroics. There are a few hiccups here and there, but nobody's perfect. As we head toward the end game of the series, it's hard not to feel like we're missing out on bits of storyline. Though many of those grey areas may be addressed in the recently announced sister series, it would be nice to get some closure on the Wild Storm Universe. Still, that's all speculation on my part, and the series continues to be an enjoyably wild ride. If issue 24 is to be the series' swansong, I really look forward to seeing how this all shapes up Read Full Review
