    This is a must have for a Warren Ellis fan and it's a great introduction to his writing for anyone who may not have read his books before. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Jul 22, 2017

    The sense of things being ratcheted up several notches is prevalent throughout this issue, and I very strongly suspect that it represents a new phase in the ongoing story. Having intrigued us over the last few issues by showing us the major players in this universe, Ellis is beginning to bring them into conflict more obviously and there's a very palpable sense of growing tension. I remain in awe of Davis-Hunt's artwork, which here manages to be both viscerally kinetic and emotionally subtle without sacrificing any of its clarity. I've been saying for some time that the slow build-up we've had so far will be worth it in the end. This issue is the first indication of just how good that pay-off is going to be. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 19, 2017

    That's it from me. The Wild Storm is amazing. It's intelligent both in the story and how it's written. It doesn't talk down to its audience or come across pompous, but rather enjoyable and welcoming. The art is brilliant and at this point essential to the world. This has felt like diving back into WildStorm the universe, but with a complete and mapped out course. It's one of the best comics being published, and that's not easy for me to say about a big two title, but it's fucking true. Read this shit; it's good shit! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Daily Jul 19, 2017

    Forecasters this week are calling for potentially dangerous weather ahead of 2017's sixth Wild Storm installment. Warren Ellis' re-imagining of the WildStorm universe continues his one of a kind storytelling and complex conspiracy-techno-sci-fi story that, for me, usually raises more questions than it answers.

    It still has a long way to go before it reaches the heights of Ellis' previous Wildstorm run, but this was a great issue and an encouraging step in the right direction. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 22, 2017

    In short, if you ever wondered how the silliness of WildCATs and Stormwatch could be turned into chilling, suspenseful, action-filled excellence, look no further than these pages. (Having the book be a planned 24-issue run with, presumably, and ending doesn't hurt.) The Wild Storm #5, aside from sounding like an easy-listening radio station, delivers action, reveals mysteries and shows us a new side of some familiar characters. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Tyler Wing Jul 27, 2017

    Warren Ellis is engaged in his own game of chess with the reader. Instead of moving for checkmate despite all the pieces being in place, he continues to feign action resulting in real development. I am hoping now that the cantankerous Bendix has been triggered the story will move forward and balance will be struck between action and dialog. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 4, 2017

    Nowthat we have approached something resembling a plot, Im much happier. I cantell good guys from bad, and understand their various roles within theirrespective organizations. If only this could have been done about five issuesago. Read Full Review

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

    The Wild Storm has way too many balls in the air for a juggle where nothing is really happening. This issue takes the time to try and explain some things, and that's helpful, but the explanation doesn't fulfill the need for an interesting and entertaining story. Read Full Review
