Jim Lee Returns to WildCats in 2006

As a huge Jim Lee fan, I’m tickled pink that he’s officially announced his return to WildCats in 2006. He’s bringing along Grant Morrison, a well-respected scribe, to pen the scripts for the series, and I think that this duo is exactly what the nearly forgotten Wildstorm Universe could use.

Back in the 90s, when it first came out, WildCats was about as derivative as you could get—a shameless ripoff of the X-Men and countless other Marvel properties that Jim had worked on. In later years, writers far more talented than Jim (who always should’ve stuck to being an artist) did wonderous things with the characters. But it’s never been the same with Jim Lee’s artwork. I, for one, am ecstatic that he’s coming back home, so to speak.
