Today, fans at SDCC were treated to an electrifying panel celebrating the 25th anniversary of WildStorm Studios! The panel served as a reunion for the imprint’s most influential members and included founder and current DC Publisher Jim Lee, along with fellow artists Carlos D’Anda, Scott Williams, Adam Archer, Ryan Benjamin, Lee Bermejo, J. Scott Campbell, Sandra Hope, Dustin Nguyen and Alex Sinclair. The panel was moderated by former WildStorm editor and DC Talent Relations Director Ben Abernathy.
Panelists shared new details on WILDSTORM: A CELEBRATION OF 25 YEARS—an oversized hardcover collection coming this fall. The book will include thrilling new stories from some of comics’ legendary creative teams, including a WILDCATS story from Jim Lee and Brandon Choi, a GEN13 tale from J. Scott Campbell, THE AUTHORITY story from Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch, and a BACKLASH short from Brett Booth; brand-new pinups of classic characters from Adam Hughes, Ryan Benjamin, Adam Archer, Fiona Staples, Carlos D’Anda, Lee Bermejo and more; behind-the-scenes material; and reprints of WildStorm's greatest stories!
Attendees were treated to live art demonstrations throughout the conversation, first looks at exclusive new artwork from WILDSTORM: A CELEBRATION OF 25 YEARS, and everyone in attendance left with their own Grifter mask!
