    Default What's up with Wildstorm?

    What is DC's problem with Wildstorm? It's my favorite Imprint from DC plus when they bought in 99 the stories were incredible especially Planetary & the Authority DC messed with a great thing shame.

    Actually if I recall correctly from images and past posts Wildstorm is actually supposed to be part of the upcoming 5G timeline. My theory is that they will use the time jump to introduce characters like Gen13 into the main continuity and attempt to establish that other characters also have history of existing.

    Beyond that before Rebirth the Wildstorm characters did regularly appear in the New 52 DC universe. In fact Midnighter actually had a really great DCyou ongoing in my opinion which was connected to the Grayson spy series. I figure they only limited their inclusion/appearances in the main universe when they wrote that new reboot universe in the Wildstorm series. However that ended so who knows what is next.

    Edit: It’s a bit blurry, sorry if it’s not a great image. But if you look carefully in the current generation of comics, Generation 4, you can see that Wildstorm’s logo is included. Hence my theory (of course I could be entirely wrong and I accept that)

    It's a long story, but basically:

    Shortly after Image broke it's shared universe because the owner of each studio wanted to it's own way, Jim Lee talked Alan Moore into writing a lot of shit to Wildstorm. DC, ion it's usual pettiness, offered what I assume was an obscene amount of money to Jim Lee for the studio, so they could have a contractually obligated Moore.

    Moore, of course didn't like this, but finished his obligations because he is a correct guy. after that, DC didn't really know what to do with WS.

    I haven't read the latest...uhh, "run" of the Wildstorm U (The Wild Storm and Wildstorm: Michael Cray). Is it a good read? Do Ellis and Hill tell a satisfying story in their limited time?
    Comics were definitely happier, breezier and more confident in their own strengths before Hollywood and the Internet turned the business of writing superhero stories into the production of low budget storyboards or, worse, into conformist, fruitless attempts to impress or entertain a small group of people who appear to hate comics and their creators. -- Grant Morrison, 2008

    the Michael Cray spin off was ... ok i guess.
    But I REALLY enjoyed the main Wild Storm series, and was really looking forward to the sequel WildCats series before it got shelved.

    Yes, it's really good. Michael Cray is more enjoyable if you also read the main series.

    Oh yes, it was really good. Not your classic Wildstorm, and is more like Ellis version, but it was a great story. Sadly, I don't count on new stories on this universe. At least for the time to be.
    Persoanlly I would like to see them again.
