    1. This marks the start of Joe. Carey’s run on Wildcats and is a good new direction for the team. Finally the Wild C.A.T.s are acting like a covert action team (?).

    2. It is such a shame that DC incorporated (keyword: corporate) the Wildstorm universe into the DC universe. I know, more than often than not the Wildstorm books were poorly written, though they might have had good art. Of course, that could be said about most of the 90's Image stuff. There are some incredible books that Wildstorm put out, just before DC took over- Warren Ellis' run on Stormwatch, followed by his run on the Authority is better than pretty much anything the big two have put out in t [...]

    3. This could have been good, but it gets so much so very wrong. Lobdell clearly has a long-term vision in place, and the idea to have the book start out in the aftermath of the team's disbanding was a good one - but the story is really unclear. However, part of this lack of clarity is down to the artwork of Travis Charest, which is freaking gorgeous but can often sacrifice clear storytelling for an ambitious layout. (Plus, he only does about half the book, putting in progressively less of an appe [...]

    4. While I'm happy to see the names of both Scott Lobdell and Travis Charest adorning this book, I don't think anyone should get their hopes up. I won't argue that Charest's art is incredibly beautiful and dynamic, but of the six issues collected here he does the full art for issues one and two, then only about five pages of each issue afterwords. It's really unfortunate he couldn't keep up with a bi-monthly schedule even. Scott Lobdell does quite a nice job taking this book in a different directio [...]

    5. I've heard good things about subsequent volumes of Wildcats, so I started here. The best thing I can say is that it's good to recalibrate your taste every once in a while by reading something uninspiring and listless. I still don't quite get what the Wildcats are doing, except not really being a team, and not knowing what the two warring alien races are doing. Right.

    6. If you're not familiar with WildCATS (I'm not) then this series won't make much sense to you. These six issues don't spend any real time filling the reader in, and the writing is awkward from more than just a plot standpoint. That being said, Travis Charest's art is gorgeousor at least the people he draws are. That's not enough.

    7. The writing in all these stories seems smart, but somehow the first few don't make any sense. Fortunately, it begins to cohere by the latter half of the volume, and the art is nice throughout. Still, a pretty mixed bag.

    8. The book starts out with a good premise and great art, but slowly devolves into a cliche action movie with a ridiculous ending that brings the story to a sudden halt. Other than for the Travis Charest art in half the book, I would not recommend.

    9. I have no idea what happened in this book. The story and exposition feel completely random. The books offers moments of brilliant art, but often deteriorates within a few pages.
