@aztek_the_lost: Works for me. I didn't see any rules about answering more than one, but perhaps I just wasn't looking hard enough; you may want to make it more apparent. I'll go back and edit my post, anyhow.

Now if anyone wants to help me out...

@KnightRise: I feel you, there; it isn't all brilliant. Warren Ellis is sort of obsesses with doing pastiches of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, for example, and Mark Millar went on an odd "do a whole team that mirrors the Avengers!" jag in The Authority. The early stuff definitely suffers from Image-itis, with the action-film-esque characters and codenames, but the brand improved over time and tilted toward more interesting stories and concepts. Sleeper, for example; Planetary, for another.
EDIT: This should probably be moved, but I don't know how to do that; it's not exactly off-topic, is it?
I've got a lot of comic book fans as friends, but without me it seems like none of them would have ever picked up a Wildstorm title. I got into the universe through WildC.A.T.s back in the '90s, and followed that up with Stormwatch. In my adulthood, I found that Warren Ellis' run on Stormwatch (which would spin into The Authority) was pretty damn good, and it got me back into reading titles like WildC.A.T.s, Gen13, DV8, Deathblow, and Wetworks, as well as new titles like Sleeper, Midnighter, 21 Down, and my all-time fave, Planetary. I proselytize my favorites among these, and find that a lot of my friends really dig them, but had never heard of them before.
With characters/groups like Stormwatch, Grifter, Caitlin Fairchild, and Voodoo now being ported over to DC, I wonder if anyone has gone back and read some of the better volumes, or if there's anyone else out there who sort of carries a torch for the Wildstorm universe. Is it just me?
