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.

Notes on This Title
Although this series can be read as a stand-alone, it is reboot of WildStorm imprint, a number of books that were published throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, including Midnighter (2006). It contains references to those series, but does not exist in the same continuity as them.
“The Wild Storm doesn’t even really come across as a superhero comic at all. It’s more 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. Right away, it’s fun seeing Ellis streamline this eclectic universe into a leaner, meaner whole.” (Source: IGN)
