WildCATs returns with Warren Ellis and Ramon Villalobos
DC Comics recently announced that they will be bringing back the WildCATs for a six issue miniseries written by Warren Ellis with art by Ramon Villalobos.
Check out the full cover and synopsis below.
This team won’t be the normal team we’re accustomed to as its just a four man team namely Grifter, Savant, John Colt and Adrianna Tereshkova.
Read the synopsis below:
From the pages of THE WILD STORM, the piratical covert team are here to stop humanity from destroying itself. The black-ops team featuring Grifter, Savant, John Colt and Adrianna Tereshkova have discovered that the secret space program Skywatch has been performing medical experiments on abducted innocents for decades. And now one of those experiments is about to explode—revealing a new threat and level of danger that no one could have prepared for. The covert team may have thought the world was strange before, but they had no idea — and now the stakes might just be too high.
Warren Ellis had this to say:
The first line I wrote down for WildCATs was: ‘Saving the human race from the human race,’ 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.
Ellis and Villalobos’ WildCATs #1 goes on sale August 28 with a main cover by Jim Cheung and Tomeu Morey and a variant cover by Chris Burnham and Nathan Fairbairn.
