Hey, people of Wildstorm Love. I'm new here; I come bearing the Wildstorm highlights of DC's June 2007 solicitations
Headline news: with issue 8, Midnighter
gets a new writer: Christos Gage, of making Stormwatch PHD
really rather marvellous fame! Midnighter #8
Written by Christos Gage
Art by John Paul Leon
Cover by Chris Sprouse
The Midnighter is challenged by Hawksmoor to take on a different kind of mission, one with a little more humanity. Amused by the dare, Midnighter agrees, only to find that nothing ever comes easy in this nasty world we live in.
On sale June 6 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US
The cover image could
mean that Jack has challenged Midnighter to protect kittens from Nosferatu. If that's not the case, I hope there will at least be fanfic with that premise somewhere.
Also solicited: Grifter and Midnighter #4
, with Chuck Dixon and Ryan Benjamin; Gen 13 #9
with Gail Simone and Carlo Barberi; Welcome to Tranquility #7
with Gail Simone and Neil Googe; Wetworks #10
with J.M. DeMatteis and Joel Gomez; and Stormwatch PHD #8
, with Christos Gage and new artist Andy Smith
. A trade for the first 6 issues of Stormwatch has also been advance-solicited for July 18.
No sign of the sunken flagships, Authority
(now officially on hiatus
) and Wildcats
(with optimists predicting a May 30th ship date
), and the cover for Stormwatch
shows Lauren channeling her inner Vampire Willow to an unprecedented degree, but there's plenty here to spark off some good Wildstorm love. ETA
: it's been brought to my attention that parts of my brain have fallen into disuse. Obviously
that's not Fahrenheit, it's Diva. Sixty lashes.
