Wild Storm (2016 maxi-series) #1-24 [SET] — Everyone Look Up! (Variant Covers)

$170.00

Everyone is looking up.

A man has been thrown from the upper floor of a skyscraper.

Angela Spica, sick from the trans-human implants she has 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. 

Jackie King, chief analyst at IO, tries to make sense of all the pieces scattered across the board since Angela Spica saved Jacob Marlowe's life.

Angela Spica wakes up at Jacob Marlowe's safe house and starts to realize how far from real life she's been thrown since then.

But life is not slowing down, and Marlowe's wild covert action team has to extract the last member of their number from an IO black site. 

And John Lynch, once the director of IO, the secret deep-state agency that runs Earth, is on the road.

His darkest project, Thunderbook, has been uncovered, and he needs to warn the principals, now scattered across America.

Hiding.

Because they were his most successful experiments.

And none of them is completely human anymore. 

And Jenny Mei Sparks is back, and she has a plan.

The problem is that other people have ideas, too, and one of them is about reducing the population of Earth by 90 percent.

Meanwhile, Skywatch intensifies its preparation for war and increases its attacks on the planet.

For some of these conflict zones, Skywatch's greatest threat is not IO or conventional forces, but the people who escaped from its experimentation camps.

And the four people in London whom it knows little about, but who are preparing to take steps to alter the balance of the world!

Plus, it's the return of Midnighter and Apollo! 

New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis returns to reset the WildStorm universe with NEW iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and more!

Presenting a 24-part story that can NOT be broken-up!

“Chapter One” 
A troubled woman, barred by her employer from continuing her research, walks miserably through New York City. It takes her a moment to notice that everybody else is looking up. A man has been thrown from the upper floor of the Halo skyscraper. And that woman—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. New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis returns to DC to curate Jim Lee’s WildStorm world, with this debut issue resetting the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and others.
