Wildstorm Universe Discussion Thread
The Armageddon Trilogy is a good place to start (all in trade):
Number of the Beast
Of course there are tons of older stuff that are worth reading but if you just want a place to start, this is a good overview of all of the teams/characters.
" hello everyone! ,can anybody help me?, I want to get into reading the Wildstorm Universe!!! and I don't know where to start reading??? Any recommendations??? :P "I'd recommend reading Warren Ellis's run on Stormwatch, which leads into the first volume of The Authority. Planetary is also great, and doesn't require too much knowledge of the WSU to understand.
" @danhimself said:I really hope so...I was getting really amped up once I saw it coming and then the issue ended...I hope it's a really awesome fight and doesn't get interrupted or anything" man if they don't show the fight between Zealot and Midnighter in WildCATS then I am going to be extremely pissed "What are you talking about? I anticipate that's all the next issue will be! "
I'm really loving all of the Wildstorm books post Red Blade....except for Gen13 which upsets me since it's the book that got me back into Wildstorm
I have a question about the reading order of some Wildstorm material. I got trades for Armageddon, Number of the Beast, Revelations, After the Fall plus Authority: World's End and and WildCats: World's End and Family Secrets. Which one should I start with and go from there? Thanks.
@Ebbm: Armageddon > Revelations > Number of the Beast > After the Fall/Authority/Wildcats (world's end > family secrets)
Wildcats and Authority happen at the same time and After the Fall (if I'm recalling correctly) is just the collection of backup stories that came with Wildcats, Authority, Gen 13 and Stormwatch PHD so you can read that along with the other two. Actually, I might suggest reading After the Fall first. It doesn't really matter because most of the stories kind of happened on their own without messing with Wildcats or Authority much, but I know one did (the one with Tao, since he shows up later in Wildcats and the stuff in the backup story featuring him is relevant) and a couple of the others kind of tell you what was going on with some of the characters you'll see show up later (though I don't think those end up being relevant).
