Wild Storm #1 by Warren Ellis and DC Comics relaunches Jim Lee’s world
A troubled woman, barred by her employer from continuing her research, walks miserably through New York City. It takes her a moment to notice that everybody else is looking up. A man has been thrown from the upper floor of the Halo skyscraper. And that woman-Angela Spica, sick from the transhuman implants she’s buried in her own body-is the only person who can save him. What she doesn’t know is that the act of saving that one man will tip over a vast and secret house of cards that encloses the entire world, if not the inner solar system.
This is how the Wild Storm begins, and it may destroy covert power structures, secret space programs and even all of human history. Warren Ellis reaches into Jim Lee’s WildStorm world to concoct this tale. WildStorm was a publishing label established in 1992, with its own catalogue of costumed superheroes.
The last edition was released in 2011, but Warren Ellis is relaunching the franchise. This debut issue resettles the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and others.
Wild Storm #1 was published by DC Comics on February 15, 2017 and is now in comic book stores.
