The Wild Storm #18

With open war between Skywatch and I.O. all but certain at this point, tensions continue to rise and sides will be chosen. For John Lynch that means another throwdown with an enhanced human. For Henry Bendix that means readying himself to put his weapons into action and slave them to his commands. And for Angela Spica that means accepting an offer from Jenny Mei Sparks and helping to form the backbone of an Authority. It looks like Angie's former pals will have to get along without her.

While Lynch's fight provides most of the issue's action (yet another fight the former head of I.O. manages to walk away from), and some terrific action panels from Jon Davis-Hunt, Angie's move to join Jenny and company, and Shen's magical healing of Jack Hawksmoor, pushes the comic forward to one more step to offering us a new version of the Authority. Although they are still missing a couple of heavy hitters, it looks like the real fun can begin as we seem to be coming closer and closer to the world meeting Jenny Mei Sparks and her friends for the first time. Worth a look.
