‘The Wild Storm #14’ (review)

Written by Warren Ellis
Illustrated by Jon Davis-Hunt
Published by DC Comics

 

This issue opens with Zealot in a big gun battle!

It’s tense and well paced and it’s like an action movie  right on the comic page. It drew me right in and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Jon Davis-Hunt just took the wheel and made a clear and concise and well drawn action scene. He’s the real deal, folks and you need to see his work. The rest of the issue is strong as well.

The  plot of this book has intriguing things going on throughout as well. John Lynch goes to America to warn the subjects of a program he is working on that IO may know of their existence.

The first person he warns is Alexandra Fairchild.

They have a conversation about this. You find out more about her(the quick two panel flashback is brutal and especially effective). They talk about her child who is out there. A child by the name of Caitlin Fairchild.

Longtime readers of the Wildstorm Universe know this name. What it means is that Ellis is effectively introducing the Gen 13 concept back into the ether.

It’s great to see this especially in a new interesting way. IO eventually shows up, and Alexandra holds them up so Lynch can escape.

Ellis writes a tense tale with plenty of Easter eggs for longtime readers. There’s a huge surprise at the end of the issue with another old character. I don’t want to spoil it, but it’s a great take.

This is a book full of ideas. I can’t wait to read each issue when they come out because of that.

RATING: A
