Weathering the Storm: Introduction

A while back as a sort of retrospective, I looked at Image Comics, 30 years from it’s launch back in the spring/summer of 1992, the post is here.

The studio/line that I was more drawn to was Jim Lee’s Wildstorm. Launched by WildC.A.T.S. (Covert Action Teams) it soon blossomed into a shared fictional universe as complex as anything early Marvel/DC did and with it’s own rules, tropes and cast of characters. With DC trying again to integrate these properties into the DCU (it hasn’t gone great before) I wanted to have a look at the comics, the characters and titles that shaped this line and why it was I so enjoyed it. I want to look at characters, stories and titles that made me enjoy this so much and also ask, where did it go wrong, or did it?

But my first question is to you all, do you remember the initial Wildstorm series and the ones that followed, are you nostalgic for them, feel they weren’t good or that they haven’t stood the test of time.
