The Wild Storm
Release date: January 24 (ongoing)
Warren Ellis (Red, Transmetropolitan) isn’t a stranger when it comes to blowing your mind wide open. Hell, he wrote 2008’s Dead Space and redefined the meaning of "survival horror" in an entirely different industry and it’s why his new reset of The Wild Storm universe remains one of the most underrated books on DC’s shelf. Its first few issues threw together a few badass leads and an eyebrow-raising plotline about transhumanism, and since, it’s leaned on Jon Davis-Hunt’s (Judge Dredd, Clean Room) art style to hash out politics, secret agendas, ulterior motives, and futuristic powers. It’s bloody, fast-paced, and sci-fi as all hell -- in a good way. Ellis and Davis-Hunt’s gift for setting up and pacing out a single scene and conversation over the course of multiple pages -- while making you forget you’re reading a comic book and not watching HBO -- is what makes The Wild Storm a postmodern thrill ride.
