Is Anyone Reading Wildstorm?

Despite its two main titles only having a couple issues out and being delayed indefinitely, WS still has some quality comics. Here are some I'm reading:

Only 2 issues so far but amazing nonetheless.


(This last one's been less than stellar, but there's only more issue so I'm just gonna finish it.)

Does anyone else read Wildstorm books?

Too bad they had to drop The Boys. I read Ex Machina. I was gonna read WildC.A.T.S. but...who knows if that will ever happen. I'm glad I didn't read issue #1 yet. Hopefully I'll be able to find it whenever #2 comes out (not holding my breath). I wanted to read Deathblow but for some reason haven't bought any issues past #2.

I'm an avid reaer of the Supernatural: Origins series.

I've thought about picking up a couple of their titles. Wildstorm's characters seem interesting enough.

I'm reading Midnighter (which I found to be an entertaining read) and Stormwatch (which I am finding a bit slow but I think the plot is building).

What's Gen 13 about? It looks interesting.

I never read The Boys. Didn't even give it a chance. Probably should have, but it's gone now. That was a mistake I almost made with The Highwaymen. I read good things about the first one so I went back and got it. Ex Machina is different from the normal superhero books I usually read, but it's good. I got to issue 4 on Deathblow before I stopped. It didn't really interest me.

Well, It's the prequel to The T.V. Series, detailing the boys' mom's death and how his ad got into hunting. it set up alot of the ground work for the series. There've only been three issues, but I really like where it's going. If you like Supernatural, I highly recommend it.

I liked the show most of the time so I might give it a go.

5 genetically engineered kids learn that they've been created to be weapons and band together to escape the people that made them, that kinda thing. The characters really have personalities and that makes it a good read. Even the bad guys (the main ones and the new ones they meet every few issues) are pretty interesting.

I go up and down with PHD. Sometimes I like it and sometimes I don't. I'm hoping that it picks up and is good all the time or I might not keep getting it. Midnighter on the other hand is one I always like.

I read Midnighter and I'm reading a lot of back issues of the Authority. I keep meaning to read Gen13 but never got round to it. WS is definitely one of my favourite publishers

Are you talking about new or old Gen 13? I haven't read much of the original stuff but I like the new version.

And about The Authority, I read somewhere that new stuff is coming even though it's delayed. Something about the team for the next arc doing a story that takes place before the one that's going on(delayed) now so they can do it even if the current one isn't finished. And also there's some big thing in October or thereabouts that The Authority will be in.

I read about the big thing in october that it's got something to do with the Carrier and Midnighter having to save the day. :D I can see that being fun

Well there's this for the Authority in october: "StormWatch Prime has finally managed to crack the infamous Henry Bendix's encrypted "memory tower" and located a mysterious bunker hidden the Southwest desert. Knowing that anything springing from Bendix's brilliant, twisted mind could prove either invaluable or catastrophic, they immediately head for the bunker. But The Authority are watching, too, and want what's in the bunker for themselves. Will the Authority's desire to build a "finer world" come into conflict with StormWatch's goal of protecting humanity from the super-humans of the world? You bet it will! "

and this for Midnighter in November:

"In a devastating vision of tomorrow, the apocalypse comes to the WildStorm Universe. The Wildcats' Void mysteriously returns and transports the Midnighter to a not-so-distant future in which London has been destroyed -- by the crashed wreckage of the Authority's dimension-shifting Carrier! Have his teammates survived? And is the Midnighter seeing a vision of things to come, or can this devastation be averted? "

The Boys aren't (isn't?) gone. They're at Dynamite now. They've reprinted the first 6 issues. #9 came out today.

I guess DC didn't have the b@ll$ to keep it even though it had good numbers in sales. Dynamite snatched it up. It was on a break for a few months. Even though Darick Robertson is exclusive to DC, they're allowing him to keep working on it.

try reading Wetworks Armageddon the dmn best wetworks issue ever since the first series plus you'll get to see one of the best renditions of the team especially Grail, as for Wildcats by lee still is only one issue sad to say

Okay, I need some help, where are you guys getting these comics? So far, I've only found "Ex Machina" and one volume of "Gen 13". Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Currently, I'm not reading any Wildstorm comics. The last WS comics I read were the Captain Atom: Armageddon mini-series, and I just finished them weeks ago.

I was trying to say do you have a comic book store close by but my mouse clicked "post reply"."

Oh, okay. Well, the closest thing I have is a books-a-million, that's where I found Ex Machina and Gen13. Is there a particular store brand that sells them or are they pretty much located in every comic book store? Thanks by the way.

Try online. You can get trades or individual comics and they're (usually) cheaper that way.

I just recently started really getting into WildStorm.  So far, I read both of Mr. Majestic's solo runs, the first volume of the Authority, Captain Atom: Armageddon, Welcome to Tranquility, and Number of the Beast.  From what I've read, I'm quite surprised that comics released by this particular publisher are not more popular.  I can't wait to get into WildC.A.T.S., Gen 13, and StormWatch.

Well I tried me some Authority and Midnighter and discovered that I'm more of a light comic reader ("light" as opposed to "dark" blood and guts etc. I still like depth). Anyone have any suggestions? I've been thinking about picking up Gen 13.

Gen 13 or Welcome to Tranquility are probably the lightest. Current Wildcats is light-ish, though people lose limbs every now and then.
