Deathblow par Tim Sale :

WildCATS par Ryan Benjamin :

Revoir Hitch dessiner “Authority”, c’est un vrai plaisir (et Urban est bien inspiré de rééditer le run de Ellis et Hitch). J’ai découvert ça tardivement et me suis procuré ces épisodes publiés par Semic, mais je m’y replonge souvent, c’est très accrocheur : dès qu’on démarre, on relit tout un arc sans faire gaffe.

L’initiative est sympa mais curieuse : est-ce juste pour fêter l’anniversaire de Wildstorm ? Ou va-t-on (enfin) assister à une relance sérieuse de quelques séries ?

DC a déjà relancé la franchise avec le titre Th Wild Storm, qui devrait avoir des spin-offs, supervisés par Ellis.
Je n’ai lu que le #1, je réserve encore mon avis, mais c’est bien plus accrocheur que les tentatives d’intégration New52.
