Michael Cray hunts Oliver Queen…by making himself the prey. Stripped of his weapons and his newly formed team, Cray becomes the most dangerous game in Queen’s manufactured island, where the only law is survival. Queen has mastered his domain and the art of hunting men-Michael hasn’t mastered the tumor in his brain, and neither man is prepared for the extremity of the other…but only one will survive. The first spinoff series of Warren Ellis’ hit reimagining of THE WILD STORM continues in MICHAEL CRAY #2.

Michael Cray Visits Anyone Comics

IMG_1260On Thursday October 12th, I made a short trip to Anyone Comics in Crown Heights Brooklyn, for the sold out release of Wildstorm/DC Comics newest title Wildstorm: Michael Cray.

This new series is part of the Wildstorm revamp, taking established Wildstorm characters and putting a new spin on them. The new line was launched with The Wild Storm, and Wildstorm: Michael Cray is the first spin-off series of the line.

For Michael Cray, the creative team sets up shop on an Earth similar to main DCU Earth-One, with our title character getting his latest assignment from a shadowy government agency. They also bring a very fresh, down to earth feel to the book, from the dialog, to the art, to the colors and letters, they make Cray a solid jumping off point filled with some interesting twists to familiar characters. The main character is a super assassin with a conscious, killing only when he deems that the person this agency wants dead needs killing.

For the award wining artist N. Steven Harris, one of the co-creators of Aztec, this was a great return to DC and introduction into the Wildstorm Universe.

It’s interesting because it’s not super people in tights, and that’s why they hired me to do the book, they wanted an artist that could tackle real life day-to-day clothing, not a superhero type artist, and it’s fun dealing with the topics that the writer wants to hit.

Cray is a dark book with a slick feel, a ton of potential and I’m glad I have it on my comic pull list.

Jacob Marlowe told Angie Spica that he isn’t from around here. He is, in fact, from a long way away. And the story of how he and his friends got here is probably the oldest secret on Earth. The Wild Storm cosmology begins here.

Also, nobody has stopped trying to kill Angie Spica, and I.O. Chief Analyst Jacklyn King just had the worst and most brilliant idea of her life.
