EDIT: This should probably be moved, but I don't know how to do that; it's not exactly off-topic, is it?
I've got a lot of comic book fans as friends, but without me it seems like none of them would have ever picked up a Wildstorm title. I got into the universe through WildC.A.T.s back in the '90s, and followed that up with Stormwatch. In my adulthood, I found that Warren Ellis' run on Stormwatch (which would spin into The Authority) was pretty damn good, and it got me back into reading titles like WildC.A.T.s, Gen13, DV8, Deathblow, and Wetworks, as well as new titles like Sleeper, Midnighter, 21 Down, and my all-time fave, Planetary. I proselytize my favorites among these, and find that a lot of my friends really dig them, but had never heard of them before.
With characters/groups like Stormwatch, Grifter, Caitlin Fairchild, and Voodoo now being ported over to DC, I wonder if anyone has gone back and read some of the better volumes, or if there's anyone else out there who sort of carries a torch for the Wildstorm universe. Is it just me?
