Michael Cray #2 Meanderings + Warren Ellis on the Future of the Wild Storm

The continuing adventures of Michael Cray, a dying assassin with a conscious, brain tumor and death touch.  It almost sounded like I was describing Deadpool.  Never thought of Deathblow in that light before.  He’s nothing like Deadpool, other than the dying of a tumor part. 

One fun thing I look forward to in a spin-off book is being able to explore new corners of this new WSU.  One thing already is the introduction of DCU characters in this world!  What other parts of the new WSU will we see?

Will there be new ideas introduced in this issue?  We know from the last issue that he will be having a team!  Will we be introduced to new original WSU characters?  Who will they be?  Will Cray kill Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow?  Is Green Arrow a hero in this new WSU with a dark secret, or is he all bad?  My impression from the last issue was that he was all bad.  Let’s meander ….

On the spot, in-depth analysis/thoughts, questions, and speculation as I go through the material.

The Wild Storm #8 Meanderings

Off-hand, I’m gonna guess this issue is going to open some doors to some new ideas that haven’t been introduced into this new WSU from the original WSU!  Why?  Because of the various covers for this issue. 

See below under Variant Covers for some thoughts. [Spoiler Warning]

I have a pretty good idea of who I think is on the Jim Lee and Bryan Hitch variant covers, and if I’m correct, then we’re gonna see some of my favorite parts of the original WSU!

So much to look forward to in this issue.  Thank goodness this series is 24 issues long, otherwise, the thought that there’d only be 4 more issues would be sad!  BUT this IS leading up to the end of the first year, so the next 4 issues should be big right?  I think so!  So who is this mystery woman on the cover and what’s the deal with that pod-like ship?  Let’s meander ….

Michael Cray #1 Meanderings [WildStorm]

The first spin-off book to come out of The Wild Storm and the 2nd book for the new Warren Ellis curated WildStorm imprint!  I gotta say, it’s nice to see another book on the shelves staring a non-white lead!  I think it’s exciting to have comics of diverse faces and voices.  There are a bunch of Black leads on the shelves today who have their own books (though mostly male).  Black Panther, Black Lightning, Falcon, Cyborg, Spawn, Luke Cage to name a few.

This is another maxi-series with 12 issues!  It really makes me wonder where the WildStorm will be in one year.  We are still expecting at least 2 more series to spin out of The Wild Storm; Zealot and WildC.A.T.s!  Will each series just overlap another as it’s ending, or will what’s ending be replaced to maintain four books in this new WildStorm Universe?  I suppose the success of this imprint will determine that.

As for this series, last we saw Michael Cray, he was being recruited by Trelane who works for SkyWatch’s Earth Division.  What new areas might we discover in the new WildStorm Universe in this book?  Let’s meander ….
