In 1992 Jim Lee changed the course of comics history with the founding of WildStorm Productions, which would revolutionize the business and launch the careers of so many top creators. Now, the WS crew is back to celebrate 25 years of WildStorm with new short stories of the imprint's greatest heroes by their classic creative teams, including WilDC.A.T.s by Brandon Choi and Jim Lee; the Authority by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch; Gen13 by J. Scott Campbell; WilDCats by Christos Gage and Dustin Nguyen; Backlash by Brett Booth, and more! This new harDCover also includes a massive pinup gallery featuring new art by WS alumni including John Cassaday, Tim Sale, Adam Hughes, Carlos D'Anda, Adam Warren, Tony Harris, Lee Bermejo, Ryan Benjamin, Neil Googe, Fiona Staples, Cully Hamner and more, plus behind-the-scenes material that will blow your mind, and epic reprints of some of WildStorm's greatest stories! This new harDCover is a must-have for old fans and new readers alike!

Wildstorm, arguably the most successful of the Image "sub-imprints", presents this collection featuring a fairly significant amount of new material, some well chosen reprints, and something missing from a lot of today's comics...enthusiasm.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed revisiting Wildcats #1 (in very attractive black and white) and seeing the Gen 13 characters again.
I would personally consider the price point just about right, the Authority story being worth $4 or 5 dollars on it's own. Highly recommended for fans of slap bracelets, Boy Meets World, Brandon Choi, and Nirvana.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
