The Wild Storm by Warren Ellis (Spoilers)


#462

Old dude is pretty clearly Jack Lynch


#463

And he looks perfect.
Second best new look to Grifter.


#464

Thats exactly who I was talking about when I said the Boogeyman. Who have been people been afraid of for all 12 issues?

much better than those sideburns he wore in OG Wildstorm.


#465

Voodoo?


#466

#467

Yeah, yeah, just joshing around.

I hope this means that my hopes of an actually good Deathblow series are possible.


#468

If fear equated to desire, then I definitely am very afraid of Voodoo.:wink:


#469

Well, they are on the same spectrum.

fear-love


#470

next big Question is Who is he saying Roadtrip to ?


#471

BACKLASH natch


#472

So the solicit for Michael Cray 8 suggests that the next 6 issues are definitely going to be more than just “Cray kills his way through the DCU”


#473

Yes!
Still need to read #6 to see if it lands the Aquaman stuff.


#474

Nope, it appears he said it to himself. Read Wild Storm #13 and they introduce Marc Slayton. the word backlash was not mentioned but from the conversation I would say Lynch was feeling backlash in how his experiments on Slayton turned out. I loved #13. “going to war” is a good theme for the issue. Also we see three different colored aliens, yellow(daemonites), white(probably a psychic projection) and green(Kheran).


#475

I loved 13 as well, and what Ellis did with Backlash. It’s just cements how horrifying and awful this version of Team 7 ended up and Lynch’s fearful reaction when racing away from the fire nicely paves the way for the next Generation hahah.


#476

So, new solicits are up and it seems like Ellis has actually combined Team 7 with Gen-13.

Which is honestly pretty cool and plays up, and into, Lynch’s paternal aspects in the latter’s series.


#477

It makes me very interested to see what Bobby will be like.


#478

That just hit me like a box of bricks, and really I should have guessed this once they revealed Fairchild’s name change.

I think it works with just how regretful he looks back at Backlash in the previous issue. It’s all coming from the same root emotion but twisted around a bit and still works as that sense of holding yourself responsible.


#479

Not Grunge?


#480

Grunge will always land on his feet, everyone knows that!


#481

I assume his codename will be Garage now
