Summary
  • "Originally published in single magazine form in The Wild Storm 1-6"--Indicia.
  • "Warren Ellis is arguably the comic industry's greatest living science-fiction writer.... With its lethal, quippy protagonist, corporate espionage set-up, and well, robots, THE WILD STORM is a fine gateway drug into the Ellis oeuvre." --Paste Magazine "One of the most exciting superhero projects of this year" --A.V. Club "In many ways, the Superhero Boom began with Ellis and Wildstorm."--Vulture "THE WILD STORM doesn't read like any Wildstorm comic that's come before... it's a sci-fi-flavored espionage book, one that takes a handful of familiar faces, remixes them and generally re-imagines the Wildstorm Universe to suit a more contemporary and jaded audience." --IGN "The story is just told with scalpel-like precision and that's something of a hallmark for a good Ellis tale." --Newsarama

Summary expansion
New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN, RED, THE AUTHORITY) returns to DC to curate Jim Lee's WildStorm world, resetting the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and more! Everyone is looking up. A man has been thrown from the upper floor of a skyscraper. Angela Spica, sick from the transhuman implants she's buried in her own body--is the only person who can save him. What she doesn't know is that the act of saving that one man will tip over a vast and secret house of cards that encloses the entire world, if not the inner solar system. This is how the Wild Storm begins, and it may destroy covert power structures, secret space programs and even all of human history. Collects THE WILD STORM #1-6
