The Wild Storm #24

The 24 issue experiment of re-imagining the WildStorm Universe comes to a close with The Wild Storm #24. The war between I.O. and Skywatch is finally here. Bendix has activated his sleeper agents and sent them to New York. He's also decided to drop a rather large diamond on the city just to wipe out I.O. completely. What he didn't count on was a group of heroes banding together to stop him.

There's quite a bit of action in the final issue as the (still not yet named) Authority hit the streets of New York and take down the various threats. To prevent the city from falling Jenny Mei Sparks will have to reveal herself to Jacklyn King, who walks out of the insanity in control of I.O., and Angela Spica will have to do the impossible (which, thankfully, she's gotten pretty good at by now). She earns the big hero moment this time around.

The Wild Storm #24 isn't the best issue of the run, but it is a solid conclusion. A new Wildcats mini-series is what's next, but I still want more Authority (...and possibly some Planetary?). Worth a look.
