    1. I understand that the changing face of Image necessitated a revamping of their brands, and that Jim Lee wanted to move Wildstorm into different waters, but WildCATS Year One sure as hell ain t Sleeper It s a snoozefest for damn near half the book You could skip every three pages and still get the whole story There is just too much unnecessary trash to wade through that it makes it hard to love the things that were done right The premise is great, very modern, Joe Casey does his best William Gibs [...]


    2. Not what I expected actually better in many ways The espionage angle is well played, and the characters are actually interesting in that they are all a little dirty The main thrust of the storyline corporate global dominance is definitely moving at a fast, curvy clip.I was expecting capes and powers out of this, and while I would ve said this mostly unpowered human approach wasn t up my alley, the writing is definitely hooking me It s hard to say what about it is attractive, because at times I [...]


    3. There have been industrialist superheroes since the Golden Age, but Casey and Nguyen put a whole new twist on the idea when they had Jack Marlowe, the former Spartan an android who d been fighting an interstellar war, only to discover it had ended centuries earlier realise that he could do good for Earth with his Halo Corporation than he ever had by punching malefactors Granted, it helped that he could teleport, was pretty much indestructible and had access to extraterrestrial technology which [...]


    4. Corporate superheroics could ve been a tedious subject matter, but Casey attacks the subject with all the suspense and flare of the best superhero stories.


    5. If nothing else, this first year of Wildcats 3.0 got me to think about the corporation or other organization as a superpower, and for that I am thankful.Joe Casey s story interrogates both our view of corporations and of superheroes, all under the clandestine blanket of WildCATs weird little milieu Spartan shows off how efficient and unnerving the idea of an AI running an organization can be Grifter is unlikable than usual, but some of that may be him wrestling with being unable to affect the w [...]


    6. Read for my series on WildStorm at Birth.Movies.Death This first year is some of the finest and most daring superhero storytelling I ve read.


    7. Joe Casey s reboot of the Wildcats franchise is an excellent execution of a premise that modern comic book fans are probably at least a little familiar with what if super heroes stopped spending their time punching each other in the face and tried to actually make the world a better place In Year One, Jack Marlowe and Grifter, of the original team, along with newcomer Agent Wax, put together the Halo Corporation, which promises to fix what ails the world More specifically, they re selling batter [...]


    8. Tell me something Have you ever heard of Santa Clara County v Southern Pacific Railroad Agent WaxWhat Yes 1000x yes This is the greatest comic ever, right But then that same Agent Wax uses his superpowers to force his boss s wife to have sex with him And the book is pretty clear that the only reason why this is troubling is because Agent Wax might get caught That misogyny is so unpalatable as to basically ruin the whole thing Yuck.


    9. I was somewhat offput by this book at the start It s a pretty big change even from Casey s V2 of the Wildcats, with superheroic hijinks almost entirely put aside for corporate doings, character drama, and the chance to change the world I m still not entirely sure that Casey is successful as the volume never totally grabs me, but my interest increased as the book went on, and by the time I was done, I wanted to know about the characters.


    10. Not bad Great idea, but it lost me around half way with too much complication Great art though and it maintains the high art standard through out from start to finish Well worth a read to see something newish.
