Many More Wildstorm Characters Return To The DC Universe Today
Over a month ago, we looked at the rumour that there was a lot more Wildstorm Universe coming back to DC Comics to join Grifter, Midnighter, Apollo and mentions of Halo. The WildCATS characters created by Jim Lee and Brandon Choi were brought by DC when they bought the Wildstorm Studios[...]

It's the kind of display you also see in today's Robin Eternal, with Jason Todd also having issues with The Magistrate. DC Future State: Robin Eternal #1 It may be a fascist superstate, with Peacekeepers running Cybers, artificial lifeforms and drones to take down the masked vigilantes of Gotham, but they sure are pretty.

Batman #101 1-In-25 Variant Cover
DC Comics solicitations have highlighted the appearance of WildStorm's Grifter in Batman #101, the comic continuing directly after The Joker War, a character created by DC publisher and CCO Jim Lee But it's not alone During his DC Fandome addresses, Jim Lee stated that WildStorm characters would be returning to the DC Universe in 2021[...]
Batman #101 1-In-25 Variant Cover
Throughout that time, DC has tried many, many, many different ways to incorporate the WildStorm characters into the publishing brand.  Most notably, the New 52 had Voodoo get her own series, Stormwatch gets their own series, Team 7 featuring a mix of DC and WildStorm characters, and Hellspont, the main villain of Wild C.A.T.S., also[...]
Marat Mychaels Jumps On Grifter Full Time. And Rob Liefeld Tells Tales.
Marat Mychaels filled on pencils for Grifter #11 last month, instead of Scott Clark and, it seems, will be doing the same on issue 13. And then he's on the book for good. In what is becoming, for people on Twitter that is, an increasingly entertaining departure from DC Comics, Rob Liefeld has told us all that[...]
Rob Liefeld Leaves DC Comics With The Zero Issues
Previously Rob Liefeld said that he would be leaving Grifter with issue 16, but that he's be staying on Savage Hawkman into 2013. Today, that all changed Rob Liefeld announced on Twitter than he would be gone after September's Zero issues And he made it very clear it was his decision to leave all three of[...]
Rob Liefeld Leaves Grifter – Will January Bring The DC Fourth Wave?
I really rather enjoyed today's Grifter #12 But it is one of the lower selling DC New 52 books. Rob Liefeld tweeted; As much as I love doing a bunch of books at DC, I'll be saying goodbye to Grifter with the December issue, #16 Fun ride tho. He's staying on Deathstroke and Savage Hawkman… but I was[...]
The New 52, Twelve Issues On – Part Two
Grifter does a nice trick… it has captured the kinetic nature of Rob Liefeld's art, transferred it into his plot, but let it be coalesced into script and art that's far more pleasing to the eye, puling in aspects of Jim Lee and Sam Keith along the way A long game played by a superhero[...]
Rob Liefeld Planning On Leaving The New 52?
With the news ringing in the industry's ears that that Grant Morrison was planning to jump off Action Comics and Batman Inc next year, with plans for more creator owned comics work, and screenplays, Rob Liefeld, co-writer on Savage Hawkman, Grifter and writer/artist on Deathstroke for DC Comics tweeted; "I will be close behind." I've been told[...]
Zealot And Deathblow Join The New DCU
As well as appearances of Voodoo, Fairchild, various Daemonites and Kherabim, and references to Team Seven in other DC comics, this week's Grifter, plotted by Liefeld, also brings us a certain Deathblow… So whose next? Grunge? Majestic? Ladytron? Will we get that Tao/Constantine crossover that's been waiting an age to happen? UPDATE: Yup, Grunge and Warblade[...]
Emma And Grifter And Midnighter
Is this another one of those Pride And Prejudice And Zombies stories? Sadly not, it's just some teething troubles in the brand spanking new DC website. But why stop there? Why not actually publish an Emma And Grifter And Midnighter comic? And, yes, get Chuck Dixon to write it? It could be a cult hit! [...]
Rob Liefeld To Write Deathstroke, Hawkman And Grifter
But we only knew a third of it. He's also writing Savage Hawkman and Grifter, also from issue 9. Bleeding Cool already told you that Joe Bennett would be drawing Savage Hawkman from issue 9. Deathstroke will see the character go up against Lobo, Hawkman goes cosmic with intergalactic gladiatorial combat, and Grifter also looking at the cosmic[...]
Reach Of Daemonites In The DC New 52 Goes Further
We'd already seen mention of the Wildstorm alien race, the shape-shifting Daemonites, in the Wildstorm-originated books Stormwatch, Grifter and Voodoo. But this week's DC Comics All Access editorial page states that the Daemonite influence will also extend to Demon Knights, which makes some sense as it's the prototype in the past for Stormwatch in the present,[...]
Demon Knights #4
Rather than simply relying on sales figures, which never tell the full picture, we ask retailers what is, and what isn't, moving for them, and here's what they had to report this week, on some of December 14's new releases. This past week saw three of the lesser-hyped New 52 titles – Demon Knights, Grifter, and[...]
Sixteen Thoughts About Sixteen DC Comics – The Ray, Legion Lost, Suicide Squad, Grifter, Batgirl, Mister Terrific, Batman And Robin, Frankenstein, The Shade, Deathstroke, My Greatest Adventure, Resurrection Man, Green Lantern, Demon Knights, Batgirl and Batwoman
There is a sense of humour, there is an understanding of how ridiculous the character can look, but then even those scenes are played straight.   Grifter gives a conflict of sub genres The man with a gun versus the superhero with a bow and arrow Who'd win? Superheroes every time, they're just better aren't they? Better[...]
Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen DC Comics – Batwoman, Batman And Robin, Batgirl, Huntress, Penguin, Legion Lost, Green Lantern, Demon Knights, Superboy, Suicide Squad, Resurrection Man, Mister Terrific, Grifter and Frankenstein
Literally. In Grifter #3, our soldier-turned-conman-with-a-mask tackles an alien lieform that can only distinguish one human from another human by the smell of their spine That sentence there is why you should still be reading this comic Although if you're a Wildtorm fan of old, be warned of the death of a fan-favourite character… Huntress #2 does[...]
Swipe File: Grifter #1 Vs Resurrection Man #1
Still… Resurrection Man? Or is it Grifter? What about this one?  Any clue? In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself[...]

Today, Wildstorm Enters Flashpoint (SPOILERS)
So, we knew with Voodoo, Stormwatch and Grifter, that Wildstorm would be embedding itself into the DC Universe relaunch after Flashpoint concludes. But did anyone know it is also happening in Flashpoint as well? And in the main central Flashpoint series too? Here's a scene from the new issue, Flashpoint #3 laying out the members of[...]
