"I spent about 10 minutes in the pub last night obsessed with the opening of THE WILD STORM by Ellis/Davis-Hunt. The main cover. Lots to unpack, but the element I most admire is the explicit 1-24, showing the length of series. Immediately we have context, meaning, shape and all linking to the cool formalism - as in, chilled. The Watchmen of it.

"And then the first page, which is instant classic as far as I'm concerned. Once again, this is a novel opening, about control and confidence. 9 panel is murderously hard, and - if I had to generalise - artists generally hate it. Davis-Hunt is making it sing here. Tom King with his various collaborators have been bringing it back to centre stage in comics, recently. THE WILD STORM is a similar response to the present over-tired elements in the super-hero mainstream. Let us try control. Let us try comics.

Finally found some time to post this. Sadly, it appears that this series has been cancelled with issue #8 due to low sales. There's been hints on the Facebook page that we might get more if the trades sell well, but yeah, not holding my breath.

Anyways, in this story, DW and friends go to their local Comic-Con! What could possibly go wrong?

The Roman Antonius Axia, tasked by the Emperor Nero to investigate goings on in that place, was in the thick of them.

A monstrosity loomed before him on a field of gore.

Then it resolved into a more pleasing shape- the beckoning spirit of his dead wife.

It was still what it was, though. )

A while back I posted some scans from Marvel Universe: Millennial Visions, which told alternate realities/futures of various Marvel characters. That one wasn't the only one they published; this one focused on the then-current Marvel Knights Imprint.
