The Wild Storm #7

The Wild Storm #5 offers a bit of breather for readers. And murder. Lots of murder. The introduction of Jackie King, Chief Analyst at I.O. allows the comic to go over the events of recent issues and the growing number of threats I.O. has to solve, primarily that of Angela Spica. While not dwelling too much on what we already know, this works as a nice refresher for those who have read the previous six issues and a primer for those just coming on-board for the first time.

The issue gets nearly all its action from another new character. One of the team who Angela has found herself with gets in trouble while on an undercover mission discovering a dangerous weapon at an I.O. black site. There's plenty of hallway mayhem and murder before John Colt can find a location safe enough for extraction.

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.
