This Week in Comics: Wednesday 9/22/2010


“This week in comics” is a weekly column done by resident comic expert and nerd bastards contributor, empresssith (A.K.A. Megan G.) . empress works at Collectibles Unlimited in Concord N.H. and knows more about comics than anyone should. She has boobs and reads comics. What more do you need to know? empressith is here to tell you what’s out and what’s going on this week in comics. Enjoy. ~ Management

hey fellow bastards! OK, the big comic news this week, besides Marvel and DC moving their headquarters, is….(wait for it)… WILDSTORM is Cancelled!!!

According to a few websites, it appears that DC has decided to cancel the Wildstorm line. The final issues will be published in December.

The licensed books will continue to be published under DC’s banner.

What is the future of the Wildstorm universe? Where will be the Authority, Wildcats, Gen13 and the rest of the characters that someone must care about? (Personally, the only ones I cared for were Sleeper and Welcome To Tranquility).

According to DC Comics: “In this soft marketplace, these characters need a break to regroup and redefine what made them once unique and cutting edge. While these will be the final issues published under the WildStorm imprint, it will not be the last we will see of many of these heroes. We, along with Geoff Johns, have a lot of exciting plans for these amazing characters, so stay tuned.”

So with Jim Lee’s place at DC, he clearly could have saved Wildstorm from getting the axe. That leads me to believe that the characters will return and there will be another Wildstorm relaunch.
