This is just some info I've seen from NYCC about the state of the WSU following Number of the Beast.
WildStorm's big announcement at the panel tonight was their World's End event. Details are still being kept under wraps, but they did reveal the following post-World's End titles and their creative teams: WildCats, The Authority, Gen 13 and Stormwatch PHD. The books have been written and drawn for the past few months and should not have the problems with lateness that WildStorm's WorldStorm had.
Wildcats will be written by Chris Gage with art by Neil Gouge and will feature members like Grifter, Spartan, Maul, Ladytron and Majestic in what looks like a post-apocalyptic LA (a running theme for these books).
The Authority will be written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning with art by Simon Colby and promises to show fans something they've never seen before in an Authority comic. Gen 13 will continue with it's previous numbering and has an interesting twist as the kids find themselves in this World's End world with no idea how they got there. The book will be written by Scott Beatty and drawn by Mike Huddleston.
Finally, Stormwatch PHD will return written by Ian Edgington and drawn by Liam Fernandez and will feature a surprising line-up.
In reference to World Storm's previous misfires like The Authority and WildCats, Keith Giffen will finish up Grant Morrison's scripts for The Authority while Grant and Jim Lee will finish their take on WildCats, which they're saying is now considered an All-Star-like look at the Cats.
The WildStorm crew also mentioned a book called Casey Blue: Beyond Tomorrow written by B. Clay Moore and Storming Paradise, a WWII book written by Chuck Dixon and drawn by Butch Guice. Licensed books include X-Files, Chuck, Supernatural, World of Warcraft and Prototype, a comic based on a popular video game.
Only a few comments for now. I already posted some of the Wildcats stuff and my thoughts on that in its own forum, but I'm still excited. Anyone think Gen 13 looks a little too cartoony? Anyone think it will work anyway? Abnett & Lanning on Authority? How ####ing cool is that? Why isn't Jack in the picture though? Don't know if it was in the info I posted or not, but the unfinished Authority and Wildcats comics from the Worldstorm will be finished and collected as sort of a "All Star" version.
