The Wild Storm #16

John Lynch's check-ins with former members of Project Thunderbook continues as his journey takes him to Gloria Spaulding. The interaction goes better than some of Lynch's recent attempts (Gloria doesn't attempt to kill him), but as with the others changed by Thunderbook, Spaulding is far from human... although like another member of Thunderbook she has passed something down to a daughter (as the comic continues to pave the way for a new version of Gen13).

The Wild Storm #16 also offers the first interaction between Jenny Mei Sparks and Angela Spica when Jenny becomes aware of the Engineer's existence. Although Angela doesn't sign up with Jenny's new group, the conversation does spur the Engineer to take steps to protect herself from the growing conflict.

Meanwhile the threat of the increased conflict between I.O. and Skywatch continues to be the looming threat likely to finally bring these threads together. Better hurry Angie, the world is going to need you sooner rather than later. Worth a look.
