Angela Spica is wounded, alone and hiding from black-ops killers sent by her own benefactor, the man she thought responsible for her well-being-the mastermind behind an assassination attempt the Engineer just foiled. But, unknown to her, she might yet have a chance to survive this terrible day. The Grifter has a plan.
A storm is building. And through it all, a mysterious woman crackles though the electrical devices that inhabit our lives, slipping among the invisible networks of the world.
There's something new in the world.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 19, 2017

    It's quite possible that I won't review the next issue. I feel as if I'm struggling to say any more about this series and it probably doesn't need my praise. It deserves it for sure as it is, as I said in my Deathstroke review, an extremely close second for being the best DC title published at the moment. I haven't looked at the sales, but if it's not one of their top titles then there's something very wrong with the readers of comics because this shit is golden and only getting better" which I think is platinum. The Wild Storm is platinum. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Grant Stoye Apr 20, 2017

    This issue is just the sort of gear-shift this series needed to amp up the action and the intrigue. Davis-Hunt is a star in the making with his attention to detail and organic action. Buccellato shows true innovation with impossible events occurring in a bland modern world. And goddamn, does Warren Ellis have a feel for these characters that hasnt eroded in the years that have passed. I adore this book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Apr 19, 2017

    Lately, I've been re-reading Ellis' initial run on StormWatch and, as good as that is, this blows it away. The Wild Storm is engrossingly mature – both in its portrayal of super-powered characters and the moral universe they inhabit. If that at all sounds like it might be your thing – or you have even a passing interest in the fate of characters you may have enjoyed a couple of decades ago – this book is a must-buy. It is effortlessly involving, dramatic, witty and intriguing stuff. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Apr 19, 2017

    If youre a fan of these long lost characters, I think The Wild Storm #3 will give you what youre looking for. New readers, though, may have a slightly different experience. Theres a distant vision that is slowly being enacted, which is helping to build the drama and tension of this crew of characters. With that in mind, the pacing may feel slightly off in this series third issue, but theres still enough to pique curiosity. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Apr 19, 2017

    Regardless, The Wild Storm continues to be an excellent book. This issue leaves me only wanting to spend more time in this world, and having to wait another month to dive back in is a little bit of a bummer. The work this team is doing feels like its on another level, in the upper echelon of comics right now. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 20, 2017

    The Wild Storm is a clever, engrossing update to the old Wildstorm universe, but the series has been a bit lacking when it comes to the sardonic wit Warren Ellis usually brings to his work. Luckily, that begins to change in this issue as Ellis and Jon Davis-Hunt introduce Jenny Sparks into the fold. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 22, 2017

    A healthy dose of well-scripted action makes for an exciting read, and is cool enough to make me forget the more indifferent parts of The Wild Storm. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Apr 19, 2017

    Though the first two installments of this series could easily be called bland or slow-going, The Wild Storm #3 finally starts to deliver on the promise and energy we expected from an Ellis-led WildStorm reboot. The hard part is over, now it's just up to Ellis to keep delivering the kind of action and weirdness we love from his licensed work. Issue #3 also shows readers that Jon Davis-Hunt can do so much more than tense office conversations and quick bursts of sci-fi action. The Wild Storm had my curiosity before, but after #3, it finally has my full attention. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Apr 19, 2017

    Recently it's felt a bit like starting a show midseason and trying to figure out what you missed. Still, the art is great, the story is engrossing and the cliffhanger leaves you wondering what will happen next, which is an important part of a serialized story. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 23, 2017

    With Jenny's first appearance more of a tease than anything else, most of the comic deals with the ongoing storyline involving Angela Spica who gets two different sets of unwelcome guests in her apartment. One attempting to save her, and one attempting to take her out. Unfortunately, Angela isn't given much time to trust Grifter and his friends before the assassins from IO show up and begin shooting everything in sight. So far Angela's story hasn't brought her into Jenny's orbit… but from the tease we get here I'm guessing it won't be too long before that happens. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Iam uncertain if that is failing on the part of the writers art direction, orthe artists own storytelling abilities. Its so hard to discern when yourereading only 1/24th of the overall story. Read Full Review
