The Wild Storm by Warren Ellis (Spoilers)


#502

Most Authority members have appeared, right? Except Apollo and the Midnighter (unless they’ve shown up after the second trade).

I’m just waiting for Drummer and Jakita to show up.


#503

Yeah, Jenny, Jack and Swift have appeared, with Swift also being The Doctor in this incarnation.


#504

The engineer, too, right? Or is that a different cybernetic character?


#505

Yeah, I don’t know how I forgot about her when she was the central character for most of the first two arcs


#506

This run works pretty well. It does feel like he took his script for the Marvel New Universe reboot and rewrote it for WildStorm characters. Michael Cray was the one character it took me a while to remember. As much as I liked the art, I was not much of a fan when he came out.


#507

I’m 50-50 on this trade buy, but for this price stuff it, I’ll risk it:

Wildstorm: Michael Cray: Volume 1 - Books Etc - £7.15


#508

Get that Deathblow Deluxe Edition STAT.
Utter gold.


#509

okay, now I’m tempted…


#510

Lynch gets the spotlight in the next cover.
Wonder if this means we’re gonna get some Burnout teasing.


#511

Looks like he’s finally facing off againt Slater.


#512

Do you mean Slayton?


#513


#514

Yes but my phones autocorrect didn’t agree.


#515

So, solicit info says Michael Cray finishes with #12. I like the sound of this as it suggests the spin-offs exist as part of a coordinated whole, with set, finite purpose.


#516

Yeah, the covers had a countdown at #12, so I always figured it would end there or that #13 would be rebranded Deathblow.


#517

I’m waiting until this series is all finished before I’m buying anything, Ellis has let me down a few too many times now.

How do people like the art in The Wild Storm?


#518

I like the art, it tells the story very clearly and the action choreography is great. Characters are occasionally a little stiff but it’s mostly very good.


#519

The covers are amazing. Best looking on the shelves. Simple, elegant, but oh so eye catching.


#520

The covers look cool, that last one has a Quitely vibe, is it the same artist that does the interiors?


#521

Yep.
