Warren Ellis’ adventures in the Wildstorm universe aren’t coming to an end as quickly as we thought. Although The Wild Storm comes to an end in a couple of issues, DC Comics has announced Ellis will write a six-issue WildCATS miniseries that spins out of it.
“The first line I wrote down for WildCATS was: ‘Saving the human race from the human race,’” Ellis said in the press release. “It’s a team made up of people who have seen the worst in everybody and everything, and yet still put themselves in frankly absurd amounts of jeopardy just so tomorrow might be a little bit better. And it’s a short series, so I might just kill them all. Come and see what happens. The art is great.”
And that’s the really good news is he’s working with the former Border Town art team of Ramon Villalobos and Tamra Bonvillain.
