This isn't as bad as some people make out. I admit it doesn't stand well against much of Moore's work but if you look at it in the context of its Image stablemates it's actually very readable and stands a little higher in the intelligence stakes than all the tech-fueled violence so prevalent at that time. The first eight instalments feature a split narrative featuring the new Wildcats formed after the apparent demise of the original team. It's fairly humourous, tongue lodged permanently in cheek ...more

The first time I read a WildCATS comic it was 1992 and I was sick in bed. I'd been on a camping trip with my boy scout troop and started having a serious migraine and running a fever. The scoutmaster called my mom from a payphone down the way and she came on out at 3 a.m. to pick me up on a rainy and cold Saturday night.

When I got home, she surprised me with a handful of the new Image books and a WildCATS t-shirt. (I kept that WildCATS t-shirt for 7 years, until it practically disintegrated and

I've actually read this in the earlier, two-volume edition, but for convenience sake want to pick up the one-volume, so I'm adding it to my 'to-read' list.

To combat all the negativity towards this admittedly minor work in Moore's canon, I refer to this poorly-punctuated but insightful Amazon review:

"Sometimes we get so used to a creator breaking new ground that when he just tells a great story on an existing landmass, we think he wrote a bad story. All the reveiwers here that claim this book is

Yesterday I wrote about a really good team superhero comic, Identity Crisis, filled with compelling characters, a smart plot, and real risk. Alan Moore's run on WildC.A.T.s is the exact opposite of that: big, loud, and dumb.

Like so many of the early Image comics, there just doesn't seem to be any point to anything that is happening in this book other than some fighting and explosions. The characters are basically interchangeable, distinguished by the color of their hair or their superpowers, bu

Reprints WildC.A.T.s (1) #21-34, and #50 (July 1995-June 1998). The WildC.A.T.s are dead…or so Majestic believes. With the death of his team, Majestic and Savant set to make a new team of WildC.A.T.s to defend Earth. Unknown to Majestic and Savant, the WildC.A.T.s have survived and are about to learn the truth of the war between the Kherubim and Daemonites on Khera. Returning to Earth with this information, the WildC.A.T.s face the collapse of the team and uncover a traitor within their ranks.

This is just awful. I had high hopes for Alan Moore's 1995 return to mainstream comics after a several year absence. Immediately following this story he went on to pen his run of Supreme, which I rank as one of my all-time favorites. The difference between this and Supreme is that on Supreme Moore wrote a story worthy of his name and talent. On WildCATs he wrote an "above average" comic book for the target audience, which he believed at the time to be "13 to 15 year old boys who only wanted to r ...more

Alan Moore wrote this book to make people stop asking him to write comics - that's my best guess.
The only other explanation would be that he had one of those days that make you f'cking hate living, topped it off be eating a poison taco, then wrote this book in a fit of vengeance while sitting on the toilet, burning his ass off, praying for his death and the death of the rest of us, too.

To be fair to those who are reading this: I have never read anything else from the Wildstorm imprint.

This is a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the characters. It was hard to get into it at first because I wasn't sure who was new and who had history.

This is a bit like his run on Swamp Thing and Watchmen combined. He takes an established story and kind of throws it out the window to do his own thing. I really liked the WildC.A.T.s 2.0.

I am a bit interested in reading some of the earlier stuff now, bu

meh. I generally stay away from mainstream superhero comics for exactly this reason: little storyline. I took a chance here because I saw Savant and Tao were characters and generally like them. The first 1/3 of the GN, not bad, lots of cutting witty comments, however as soon as the Kherubim war was over and everyone heads back to Earth, the storyline gets extremely loose and is unfortunately based on the blow-things-up and look-sexy-while-doing-it stereotypical superhero comic bit. I expected mo ...more

You can kind of see here what Alan Moore would have done had kept making Watchmen with the Charlton Comics character. It's very rare to see Moore write in an explicit pass-the-baton mode. Here, he leaves the basic mysteries of an all-new character for others to figure out.

So generally, this book is very interesting and keeps a lot of threads --that could each support a book this size -- running without compromising too many. True, some of the stuff involving the original team feels cut too short

This series on the otherhand I did not enjoy nearly as much. It was very much a normal superhero comic set in a world with characters and people created by other writers. It started off with two storylines, one set on Earth where a new superhero team was being assembled. This was kinda dull, except for the crazy homocidal character named Maxine who was totally old school cyperpunk. She was definitely my favourite thing about the comic. The other part of the story was the old superhero team endin ...more

It's actually kind of depressing that this even exists. When Moore broke into comics, he was this new guy doing strange, funny stuff that fit in very well with the British weeklies of the day. Then he got brought over to DC and made a name for himself as somebody applying a literary, poetic and psychological sophistication to American super-heroes. And then he did The Watchmen and was essentially crowned as the greatest writer in all of comics (no hyperbole). At which point he fell out with DC a ...more

Alan Moore is a fantastic writer, so I was slightly disappointed with his take on the Wildcats. The artwork was awesome, but the story was lackluster and predictable. I missed some of the humor of the original Wildcat series, but still and enjoyable read!

Maybe nowhere near the height of any of Moore's other works, but this year-long storyline is, unsurprisingly, quite possibly the best thing WildStorm put out during its first few years. (Certainly miles above Alan Moore's execrable Spawn / WildC.A.T.s book.) The outer-space adventure in the first half plays a nice game with expectation and disillusionment, while incorporating several interesting political allegories. The "war on crime" plotline, however, is arguably more interesting (and gives u ...more

Si bien ya leí toda la etapa de Moore en WildCats en distintas ediciones, creo que este tomo lo voy a reseñar recién cuando haga una relectura íntegra y ordenada de todos los números. Y, si es posible, habiendo leído previamente todo lo que viene antes. Por ahora ya leí el #1 de la colección Archivos Wildstorm y me pareció entretenido. Después veré el resto...

Not the best Alan Moore has to offer, but it's still a rather fun collection. I really love the way this one is drawn (the 90's obsession with cyberpunk really shines here), though I had no idea who the characters were. Maybe I'll check out some of the Stormwatch collections next...

The story attempted to follow two sets of WildC.A.T.S on completely different pathes and then tried to force them back into a singular setting/storyline. Overall the characters were unsympathetic fools, with only a good artist to try to sustain any interest in their fates.

Art was fun in this one, but not much that is signature Moore in this one. In other words, pretty standard stuff that doesn't stretch the genre. The female cyborg is the best character and that's a Moore creation. I could have read a series based on her...

And yes - this was just OK. Not awful, not great. Clearly a minor company's rip-off of the X-Men. It just seemed derivative, and not up to Moore's standards. In other words, it just feels like he did this for the money.

Not really into the whole super hero thing so I was reading this based on Moore's name. Jumped around a lot, couldn't work out what was going on and really, just not that engaged in the plot. Not my thing.
