DC REWINDS TO THE 90s IN NOVEMBER

WildC.A.T.s Makes it Return on Nov. 8 by Matthew Rosenberg and Stephen Segovia 

Four-Issue Mini-Series Waller vs Wildstorm From Spencer Ackerman, Evan Narcisse and Eric Battle Hitting Stands on Nov. 15

Over 15 Special ‘90s Themed Variant Covers in November

Batman/Spawn: The Classic Collection Arrives Before December’s Batman/Spawn #1

The 1990s brought about some of the greatest moments in comics, including Wildstorm’s debut, Batman/Spawn crossovers, The Death of Superman and amazing covers that were reflective of the unique time in history. This November, DC is celebrating everything 90s with new Wildstorm and WildC.A.T.s comic series, special variant covers, reprints of classic comics and more.

Spinning from the pages of Batman: Urban Legends, writer Matthew Rosenberg (Batman: Urban Legends; Task Force Z) and Artist Stephen Segovia (I Am Batman; Spawn) are bringing back WildC.A.T.s for the first on-going series in over a decade! The team must work together in the shadows of the DC Universe to make the world a better place but they quickly come across one of their biggest threats, The Court of Owls!

"WildC.A.T.S. has always been a mix of everything I love in comics,” said Writer Matthew Rosenberg. “From the very first issue it exploded off the pages with the coolest characters, the most gorgeous art, the craziest ideas, and it was never afraid to be subversive, go harder, and push things further than its contemporaries. Now we're smashing all of that good stuff full speed into the heart of the DC Universe. I'd say we're going to be respectful and try not to break things...but that would be a lie."

WILDC.A.T.S. #1
Spinning from the pages of BATMAN comes the senses-shattering new series! The HALO Corporation has gathered a motley crew of operatives, led by Cole “Grifter” Cash, who are going to make the world a better place...no matter who they have to kill! Working in the shadows of the DC Universe, this new covert team has been tasked with gathering an elite group of scientists for the first phase of their plan...but the ‘Cats mysterious leader, Void, might have other plans!

The celebration of the WildStorm anniversary continues with the four-issue Waller vs. WildStorm miniseries from DC’s Black Label. Deep in the heart of the American intelligence apparatus, an ambitious young woman named Amanda Waller has some dangerous ideas about how metahumans can help to end the Cold War, and she’s willing to cut straight through Stormwatch’s Jackson King—and investigative journalist Lois Lane—to make them a reality. Waller Vs. WildStorm teams up national-security reporter Spencer Ackerman (The Daily Beast, Reign of Terror) with comics and video game writer Evan Narcisse (Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Gotham Knights) and veteran artist Eric Battle (Aquaman, Kobalt) for a story that combines the tone of pitch-black spy thrillers like Sleeper and StormWatch with DC’s Deathstroke, Checkmate, and Suicide Squad!

 

WALLER VS. WILDSTORM # 1
In the early 1980s, as the Cold War stubbornly refuses to thaw, a new battle heats up...for the soul of the intelligence agency Checkmate. As the agency’s super-heroic public face, Jackson King—a.k.a. The armored Battalion, former leader of Stormwatch and the symbol of American might—has long suspected that Adeline Kane is up to dirty tricks overseas, engineering horrors that betray everything he believes about service to one’s country. But King doesn’t know that Kane has a clever new ally—an ambitious young woman named Amanda Waller. She has her own ideas about how metahumans can serve their country. And honor, dignity, and long lives don’t factor into them... National-security reporter Spencer Ackerman (The Daily Beast, Reign of Terror), comics and video game writer Evan Narcisse (Black Panther, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Batman: Gotham Knights - Gilded City), and veteran artist Eric Battle (Aquaman, Kobalt) celebrate WildStorm’s legacy of espionage-flavored superhero morality plays, pitting Stormwatch against the deadliest people in the DCU—including Deathstroke himself!

Batman/Spawn: The Classic Collection
An ancient evil has arisen in Gotham City. The last time it appeared, an entire colony was wiped clean from the face of the Earth, leaving only one clue: Croatoan. Whoever or whatever Croatoan is, it’ll take all of the Batman’s investigative skills and the supernatural abilities of an ex-soldier turned Hellspawn to save Gotham’s citizens from the hell that is about to be unleashed on our world. For the first time in three decades, this edition of the classic meeting between comics’ caped avengers of the night reprints Batman/Spawn: War Devil #1 by legendary Batman writers and artists Doug Moench, Chuck Dixon, Alan Grant, and Klaus Janson...plus the Spawn/Batman one-shot by Batman: The Dark Knight Returns writer Frank Miller and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, which brings Batman to Spawn’s home turf of New York City! Two heroes with different methods in two very different tales. Capes will clash.
