I don’t think I’ve read anything with either character. Should be interesting to try.


I’ve read precious little with Backlash, so I’m eager to dive into these selections, especially Wildcore, which has been on my WildStorm reading list for at least a decade.


Jet was a fun series. It seemed to be out of the main Wildstorm universe but then again, I haven’t read a crazy amount of Wildstorm at that point.
