The Wild Storm Volume 1 Review


The Wild Storm Volume 1

By Warren Ellis, Jon Davis-Hunt (Illustrations)

I received a free copy of The Wild Storm Volume 1 from DC Comics in exchange for my honest opinion.

New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN, RED, THE AUTHORITY) returns to DC to curate Jim Lee’s WildStorm world, resetting the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and more!
Everyone is looking up.
A man has been thrown from the upper floor of a skyscraper.
Angela Spica, sick from the transhuman implants she’s buried in her own body–is the only person who can save him.
What she doesn’t know is that the act of saving that one man will tip over a vast and secret house of cards that encloses the entire world, if not the inner solar system. This is how the Wild Storm begins, and it may destroy covert power structures, secret space programs and even all of human history.
Collects THE WILD STORM #1-6.

Summary from Goodreads.

The Wild Storm is the first volume in a new, rebooted series from DC Comics.

Having not read the original series, I had no expectations going into this and no preconceived idea as to what would occur. All I can say is that I was, and still am completely blown away by how much I loved this. Words cannot describe how I feel about this and I cannot wait to get to my nearest comic shop to buy this series monthly.

All that my brain can say about what occurs in The Wild Storm Volume 1 is that the art style is a throwback to olden comics. It is set in a 3 x 3 grid, with it occasionally merging 2 or 3 of the panels together.

Whilst I suspect that this will not be to everyones tastes, Wild Storm will leave you wanting more.
