The Wild Storm: The Humble Threat

There’s a reason why presidents and prime ministers are often seen and photographed interacting with the public. If you want to lead the public, you need to understand it. You have to have your finger on their pulse and realize what’s important to them and what will and won’t go over well. Power can be insular, and staying within your own private bubble for so long can leave you out of touch and completely uninformed as to how to lead. And even worse, it can leave you open to threats from the most unexpected of places.

Conversation with Warren Ellis About THE WILD STORM

Acclaimed comic book writer and novelist Warren Ellis has recently returned to DC to work on the characters that made him a household name among comic book fans. He has curated a new pop-up imprint called WildStorm and is authoring the imprint's first title, a complex, sophisticate thriller called THE WILD STORM, which also features art by Jon Davis-Hunt (Vertigo’s CLEAN ROOM). This ongoing series will reset the known WildStorm universe and introduce new iterations of WildStorm characters, such as Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and others.

The Wild Storm: Destruction at Your Fingertips

Technology may be the ultimate double-edged sword. There’s no doubt it’s made life easier and allowed us as a society to accomplish so much beyond what we once would have thought possible. It keeps us connected, informed and entertained. It can save lives, transport us around the globe and drive national economies. But as we’ve become more and more dependent on it, we’ve found that it also leaves us vulnerable to new forms of attack. Cyberwarfare, malware…even a simple loss of power that keeps us from accessing crucial systems could yield devastating results.

The Wild Storm: Laying Out the Pieces

Anyone who’s ever played Risk knows that ruling the world is almost like a game. There’s a strategy to it, there are moves and counter-moves, and there’s the crucial importance of being one step ahead of your opponent.

The world of Warren Ellis and Jon Davis-Hunt’s The Wild Storm, which continued this week with issue #2, seems to nod to this while also acknowledging something that many of us tabletop gamers don’t always like to admit—there can be a real tedium to strategy games.

The New 52: Futures End: Four Characters You May Not Know

We’ve been talking about The New 52: Futures End a lot here lately, and for good reason. It’s an action heavy tale with serious implications for the entire DC Universe that’s utterly unlike anything else we’re publishing right now. We’re now four issues into the storyline, and each new chapter has only deepened the intrigue, offering up a mix of explosive sci-fi action, post-apocalyptic horror, far-reaching conspiracies, startling twists and revealing character moments.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013)

Based on the acclaimed miniseries by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox finds our world turned upside down as one of Earth's greatest super heroes--the Flash--wakes up devoid of his super powers.

When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.
