The Wild Storm #20

Where many of the previous issues of The Wild Storm have been focused on introducing a large assortment of characters and lining up various storylines, The Wild Storm #20 has one clear objective: to show off the badassery of Apollo and Midnighter. It's extremely successful.

Most of the comic is geared to Skywatch hitting a small town with their ground troops and flying saucers only to be met with far more resistance than they expected by two unwelcome guests. The result is a relatively easy win for the pair and a black eye for Henry Bendix.

Other items of note, due to the fight Jenny Mei Sparks makes an important discovery which implications are only foreshadowed here, and tensions at I.O. bring a new player into the field (one not too shy about dropping bodies or creating havoc simply to make a point). It will be interesting to see where both these threads lead, but for now we can simply bask in the awesome of two more authoritative heroes kicking some serious ass. Must-read.

[DC, $3.99]
