DC Comics has announced a new Wildcats series is on the way from Warren Ellis and Ramon Villalobos. The six-issue mini-series is expected to launch in August.
From the pages of THE WILD STORM, the piratical covert team are here to stop humanity from destroying itself. The black-ops team featuring Grifter, Savant, John Colt and Adrianna Tereshkova have discovered that the secret space program Skywatch has been performing medical experiments on abducted innocents for decades. And now one of those experiments is about to explode—revealing a new threat and level of danger that no one could have prepared for. The covert team may have thought the world was strange before, but they had no idea—and now the stakes might just be too high.
“The first line I wrote down for WILDCATS was: ‘Saving the human race from the human race,’” said Ellis in a press release from DC Comics. “It’s a team made up of people who have seen the worst in everybody and everything, and yet still put themselves in frankly absurd amounts of jeopardy just so tomorrow might be a little bit better. And it’s a short series, so I might just kill them all. Come and see what happens. The art is great.”
According to the publisher, this new Wildcats series will build upon the 24-issue run of The Wild Storm that Ellis worked on with Jon Davis-Hunt in 2016.
Wildcats #1 is scheduled to arrive on August 28th, 2019.
