The Wild Storm by Warren Ellis (Spoilers)


#542

I’ll always have a soft spot for The Monarchy, primarily because of writer Doselle Young’s active involvement on the WildStorm message boards back in the pre-MillarWorld days.


#543

The Fevermen showed up in The Monarchy, right? When pursuing Vox? I bloody loved the Fevermen.


#544

Yeah, the Monarchy was sorta like Wildstorm’s DOOM PATROL. More weirdscreen than widescreen.


#545

Today’s issue was lovely.
Great amount of forward momentum, especially in light of what Ellis tweeted the other day.
It’s a shame the series will take a hiatus in a few months, but it’s definitely not being abated by it.


#546

to put what I wrote in new Comics thread, if ppl want to discuss it

Roxy’s mother is a trip. I like the part where she says " I had a kid. It was weird, you know? like a compulsion." Could the Implants be responsible for GEN 13 or as Gloria calls it, the Thunderbook 13th Genetic stage?


#547

Yeah, Grunge’s dad implied that it’s all part of some this motivation to colonize and invade.


#548

It’s similar to SF ideas like the protomolecule in The Expanse or the early colony waves in the Revelation Space novels - you send out a technological solution to make other planets and other life like you. That way your empire grows without having to send massive amounts of soldiers and ships across space.


#549

Or the sci-fi masterpiece: Species.

And Species II.


#550

Yes… Masterpiece.


#551

#552

Isn’t that what it’s been doing since day one?


#553

yes, but adding the word “more” does not POP in the way they want the headline to


#554

Until now it’s been one at a time?

(Yes, I know the second arc has Diana Prince and John Constantine, but they were introduced in separate issues)


#555

Just got to the end of the latest issue. That was fun. And I wasn’t expecting that pair to show up at the end. :slight_smile:


#556

The way the laser curved I thought it was going to be Flashpoint, Sunburst and Nautika for a moment, and then that last page happened


#557

I absolutely loved the issue.
Makes the wait for whenever a new Gen13 series even worse. I still wonder what the heck is going to go on with Burnout odds are now he doesn’t really exist now.


#558

I’ve only been reading Michael Cray. I’ve always been a fan of Deathblow & Team 7, but never really got into the rest of the Wildstorm universe. Should I pick up Wildstorm even if I don’t know any of the history?


#559

I think it works both ways (I know bits and pieces of WS history but by no means a huge amount, and I’ve been enjoying it), but I know some people have felt a bit like they’re missing something by not getting all the references.


#560

Team 7 seems to make up a fair bit of the new WSU’s tone and informs the setting a lot. What’s happening to Cray in the second half of the story ties in to the third arc in The Wild Storm as well, but they’re not essential to each other.


#561

As someone who dabbled in and out of Wildstorm over the years and really doesn’t get all the mythology/connections in regard to Team 7/Gen 13/Wildcats, I have REALLY loved this book. Worth checking out.
