DC Relaunch: Wildstorm, Westerns And War

DC Comics appear to have run out of news organisations to give their new relaunch comics to. So they just decided to do it themselves this time. Expect Superman books news tomorrow.

So we get the return of Stormwatch #1, the Wildstorm title that preceded The Authority, with Jack Hawksmoor, Midnighter, Apollo and Martian Manhunter. This is confirmation of a merger of Wildstorm and DC Universe continuity, don’t you think? By Paul Cornell and Miguel Sepulveda.

Sgt Rock And The Men Of War #1 with Sgt. Rock’s grandson commanding the Easy Company, dealing with the superhero detritus of the DC Universe. Damage Control meets Navy Seals, basically, by Ivan Brandon and Tom Derenick.

As previously BleedingCooled, OMAC #1 by Dan DiDio, Keith Giffen and Scott Koblish.

As previously BleedingCooled, Grifter #1 by Nathan Edmondson, CAFU and BIT.

Deathstroke #1 by Kyle Higgins, Joe Bennett and Art Thibert.

A modern day Blackhawks #1 by Mike Costa and Ken Lashley. Wow. Ken Lashley. Haven’t seen a lot of his work since… Bob Harras‘ Marvel.

All-Star Western #1 starring Jonah Hex, set in a nineteeth century Gotham – and probably where that BleedingCooled Vigilante story by Darwyn Cooke will turn up. Jonah Hex story by Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti and Moritat.
