Review: WildC.A.T.s #1

WildC.A.T.s #1

I’m old enough to remember the launch of Image Comics all those decades ago. Each creator brought excitement with their launch titles. The look of each was so unique and interesting, a massive shift during that time period. Jim Lee launched WildC.A.T.s and I remember being disappointed. With most of Image’s initial titles I felt that way. They looked great but the stories lacked and were rather a bit disjointed. Over the years there’s been different takes and my view of the property changed. Wildcats 3.0 was a take on the team that I still think is fantastic and underrated. While DC has teased some of the characters of the years, they’ve never really fit and integrated well. So, I was intrigued by WildC.A.T.s #1 and by the end, I want to see more.

Written by Matthew Rosenberg, WildC.A.T.s #1 takes a lot of the elements of the classic team and brings them into the DC Universe. In recent months, we’ve seen more of the characters, particularly Grifter, showing up in mainstream DC stories. Now moved the Star City, the Halo corporation is up to something, and that something has to deal with the WildC.A.T.s team who are on various missions, that never seem to go right.

Rosenberg feels like he’s nailed the balance of the classic testosterone driven takes in the past and the current DC Universe. With a team featuring Deathblow, Zealot, and Grifter, they’re on a mission to get a scientist which goes off the rails. Grifter does what he wants. Zealot is the serious member dealing with the idiocy and Deathblow, well, read the comic. There’s a fun 90s action vibe about it all delivering humor along with the bullets flying.

The art by Stephen Segovia nails it all down well. It has the over the top aspect of the 90s but a bit more in today’s style. Along with color by Elmer Santos and lettering by Ferran Delgado, the comic looks solid with the characters having their looks updated a bit. The characters’ reactions stand out as they let their emotions fly yelling at each other and dealing with the insanity. There’s a lot of humor in Segovia’s details, enhancing the laughs Rosenberg bakes into the action.

WildC.A.T.s #1 is a fun debut that shows off a lot of potential. It brings back the nostalgia a bit but also does a good job of integrating this world into the ongoing DC Universe. It has me wanting to see more and even with this being a limited series, here’s hoping we do.
