WILDCATS WORLDS END TP BOOK 01
What did the
The first trade to Wildstorm’s big World’s End event is finally here. And it brings back the team that started it all for Wildstorm. World’s End stems from Wildstorm’s “Armageddon Trilogy” which consisted of Wildstorm: Armageddon, Wildstorm Revelations, and Number of the Beast. The trilogy brought about an apocalypse caused by S.P.B.’s (Super-Powered Beings) and left Wildstorm’s earth in ruins. At the end of Wildcats 3.0 the team was based in
The series does have a shaky start as we are thrust into the events following Number of the Beast without a solid re-introduction of the team. World’s End as a whole was designed to bring in new readers and the first issue could have benefited from a few more intentional introductions. But for long-time readers, the action is quick and heavily present throughout the run. Issues 1-2 deal with the Wildcats going up Majestic who has his own plans for rebuilding a new paradise for the Kherubim race. 3-4 show us a little more of the current landscape as we get some guest appearances by other WSU characters such as Stormwatch P.H.D.’s
Overall, World’s End is a solid new chapter in Wildcats history. Even though the series could have had a stronger start, it really finds its legs by the end of this first arc. And rest assured that the Majestic and Daemonite conflicts are not so easily resolved and the stakes will be raised when the next collection comes out where everything comes to fruition.
