I came up with a Random Comic Generator for picking out random comics to try, and it landed me on this random Wildstorm comic. I know almost nothing about Wildstorm. In my experience, everything from the early Image days that isn’t Savage Dragon is pretty terrible, but I haven’t delved too deep into Jim Lee’s creations.
I kind of liked this, but I’m sure it’s not written for me. The first issue did a good job with setting up the scenario, and it was pretty good. I was interested, but the second issue was essentially all generic action with characters I barely knew using powers I didn’t understand, and it was just meh.
I know this is a prequel designed for people who already know the characters, but I find this to be my feeing with most early Image comics. They are Action centric without great characters, and I never feel like I really have a grasp of the big picture.
Anybody have thoughts on this series or feel like giving me the basic lay of the land for the Wildstorm Universe. Here’s a question, what is the Wildstorm? They talked about it in this mini-series, but I couldn’t tell if it was in reference to a specific thing or just metaphorical. Also, what comes next? The series ends saying, “Continued in Stormwatch Ground Zero, and I cant figure out what that is.
