Roleplaying Adventures Through DC Comics Universes
The only unfortunate thing (for me) is that the Wildstorm characters (as usual?) tend to get short shift in the game line, being mentioned in passing in the DC Adventures Universe book The Wildstorm characters haven't made an RPG appearance since the 2004 Authority RPG and Resource Book put out by Guardians of Order I[...]

Lot 13 Deserves A Lot Of Attention
DC has been sitting on Lot 13 since it was first advertised as coming out under the Wildstorm (RIP) imprint And while we're on the topic, where's my goddamn Astro City monthly?! Now that they're finally releasing it, they are doing so with the same pomp and fanfare they gave Brian Wood's Supernatural mini: NONE[...]
The J Scott Campbell Austin Powers Comic That Never Was
One of a very few remaining posters that prove that, at one point, Wildstorm Comics pitched to make an Austin Powers comic book This poster, with art by J Scott Campbell, was created for the pitch. Naturally, it never went through, but we are left with this glimpse of what once was…   Just[...]

Wildstorm Invades Superman As Helspont Appears In Superman #8
Nothing can make the prescence of the Wildstorm Universe, truly rebooted within the new 52, quite as clear as the cover to Superman #8, to be published by DC Comics in April While the cover to Action Comics #8 features Superman and the Collectors, messing around with Bottle cities and Bottle people, the cover to[...]
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,[...]
