Jackie King, chief analyst at I.O., tries to make sense of all the pieces scattered across the board since Angela Spica saved Jacob Marlowe's life. Angela Spica wakes up at Jacob Marlowe's safe house and starts to realize how far from real life she's been thrown since then. But life is not slowing down, and Marlowe's wild covert action team have to extract the last member of their number from an I.O. black site. Meet John Colt-moments before he's either rescued or murdered or dissected to reveal a secret kept for thousands of years.

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Sep 20, 2017

    I'm beginning to run out of superlatives for both Ellis' scripting and Davis-Hunt's art. Structurally, this issue is pretty much perfect – a stunningly choreographed action sequence sandwiched between two beautifully scripted sections of exposition and character interaction with a tantalizing dash of mystery thrown in at the end for good measure. In turns, witty, exciting, beautiful and intriguing, this as satisfying a comic book experience as one could wish for. Read Full Review

    Ellis and Davis-Hunt deliver yet another fantastic issue. Readers are told only a couple secrets as the story unravels a little more but the frantic and violent action, coupled with the witty dialogue gives readers more than enough to keep them satisfied for longer than a regular comic book.

    This issue has the best action sequence of this series thus far AND manages to advance several storylines even as it creates new mysteries. Why aren't more of you reading this book? Read Full Review

    If Warren Ellis isn't one of your favorite comic writers, I don't know what's wrong with you. But check this comic out and hopefully you'll change your mind. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Sep 20, 2017

    Overall, this is a must read comic book. From the art to the coloring to the language, nothing is out of place. If there is a complaint, its that there has been an awful lot of summation dialog needed for the long weeks in between chapters I guess " for only seven issues. Still with as rich a world as Ellis team have created I wouldnt let this series pass you by, as it will be one of the titles we look back on and dissect years from now. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Lu Sep 20, 2017

    I've never read any of the old WildStorm material. I can't comment on how faithful this series is to the old universe or on how these two compare on relative planes of quality. What I can say though is that The Wild Storm is easily one of my favorite, if not my number one favorite, DC Comic on the shelf right now. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Sep 20, 2017

    It greatly helps this series also to have an artist like Davis-Hunt. He’s been showing that he can do both the smaller, quieter moments as well as the big action scenes - with probably a little more blood than we’re used to possibly. The way he shows off John’s escape from IO was different than how other artists would portray that scene, and it made it a lot of fun to follow. In all, another great issue. Read Full Review

    As for Angela it looks like she, and we, will have to wait at least one more issues for answers about the world and players she's found herself trapped in since making her suit. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    "The Wild Storm" is back and it's as smooth as ever. Sure, come for the crazy alien stuff but stay for the commentary of banal corporate work. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Wing Oct 27, 2017

    This series gets a lot of hype and critical acclaim but I feel like most of it leans heavily on nostalgia. Though Warren Ellis does provide some unique and interesting creativity in reinventing new identities to old concepts, he fails to really do anything of interest with them. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Nov 3, 2017

    Thatsnever a good strategy for writing comic books. Its its own entity, with it ownpitfalls and advantages. Yes, sequential storytelling does share similaritiesbetween comics, film, etc. Writing for one format to be executed in another is,in my opinion, setting oneself up for failure. Its not often I recommendwaiting for the trade, but this may be one of them. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 23, 2017

    The Wild Storm is severely lacking in in any sort of organization. As someone with zero knowledge of the previous Wildstorm Universe, all of these secret agents and secret agencies are swirling together into a big mess of nothing interesting. Read Full Review
