The Wild Storm #11

The latest issue of The Wild Storm jumps around quite a bit, checking on various characters and the state of events. As a result, the overall plot of the comic moves only marginally forward, although several of these scattered stories do continue to develop.

The Wild Storm #11 gives us Jennifer Mei Sparks and the Doctor getting to know each other better while also providing some foreshadowing of a larger team to come. Is this the first step to a new Authority? We'll have to wait and see. Angela Spica continues to experiment with the tech that turned her into the Engineer - with cool results. And Grifter gets a visit from an old friend.

Both Skywatch and IO continue to look suspiciously at each other as frictions mount. This offers a chance for Henry Bendix to inform readers what happened the last time there was split between the two organizations, and on Earth Jacklyn King's team moves forward with what very likely may be the first step towards a new conflict. Worth a look.
