DC Shuts down Wildstorm
I just read this over at Comics Alliance. Turns out DC Entertainment is shutting down the Wildstorm imprint and folding all the characters and such into the DC universe to be relaunched at a later date.
I haven't read much from Wildstorm lately, but they are responsible for my favorite super hero team ever, The Authority. There was a sweet run where The Authority was penned by Warren Ellis, then Mark Millar, and Frank Quitely drew a few issues during that stretch as well. It'll be lame to have such great characters, and ones that deliberately poked fun at certain well-loved DC heroes, get relaunched by DC sometime down the road. Sad.
