In May, DC Comics announced a new Wildcats series written by Warren Ellis and featuring art by Ramon Villalobos, and color by Tamra Bonvillain. Now, that project “isn’t coming out” according to Ellis.
The series solicitations were recently canceled leading speculation of a delay but Ellis in his most recent newsletter writes something a bit more dire with blame seeming to focus on Villalobos’ schedule and missed deadlines.
From the newsletter:
Oh. yeah. WILDCATS isn’t coming out. There is hope that it will be resolicited at a later date, but, for right now, it’s cancelled. As you know, I was two scripts into it, with chunks of other parts done and a full and lengthy treatment for six issues, so it’s kind of frustrating for me too. (RIP my bills.) But, here’s DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee:
So there’s hope for the future of the title. Maybe someone will want to draw my tired old man shit, who knows.
So, there’s hope we’ll eventually see the series with the original creative team attached. Better than a few issues out and long delays between issues.

Wildcats are back this August! Warren Ellis, artist Ramon Villalobos, and colorist Tamra Bonvillain team up for a new action-packed era. Ellis continues his reintroduction of the Wildstorm Universe and is taking the covert team on an all-new adventure in a six-issue miniseries. The first issue is out August 28.
“Saving the human race from the human race.”
That’s the concept Ellis is working with as he puts together a team made up of people who have seen the worst in everybody and everything and yet still put themselves in jeopardy to do the right thing.
From the pages of The Wild Storm, the piratical covert team are here to stop humanity from destroying itself. The black-ops team features Grifter, Savant, John Colt, and Adrianna Tereshkova. They have discovered that the secret space program Skywatch has been performing medical experiments on abducted innocents for decades. 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. The stakes might just be too high!
Wildcats from Ellis and Villalobos builds on Ellis and Jon Davis-Hunt’s 24-issue series The Wild Storm. That series debuted in 2016. The miniseries will channel the same breakneck energy and imagination, creating a thrilling new story for fans of WildStorm.

Spectacular covers will be available by Dave Johnson, Marco D’Alfonso, Ramon Villalobos and retro trading card inspired ones by Ben Caldwell.
We brought you the story yesterday of the allegations made by Cynthia Naugle of the physical and emotional abuse she suffered while working with Eric M. Esquivel.
In the post, Naugle doesn’t name Esquivel and refers to him as “X.” Due to clues she leaves, it’s clear it’s Esquivel, one of the creators behind the recent Vertigo series hit Border Town.
Today, his collaborators on the project, Ramon Villalobos and Tamra Bonvillain have both announced they would be leaving the project. Bonvillain makes clear there are more issues than this one. It’s unclear if any of them are in regards to other accusations that have come forward in the days that Naugle has gone public.
Bonvillain said that DC has wanted to keep the focus on Eric and have been waiting for him to speak up, but he remains silent. Villalobos and Bonvillain informed DC they’d like to speak up due to the silence and DC gave them permission.
DC Comics/Vertigo have not made a statement, and declined to make one at the time when when we reached out, but SBI Press is parting ways with Esquivel as well.
Without his collaborators, it’s still unknown as to the future of Border Town and Esquivel’s role at Vertigo.
