WILDCATS #1 by Paul Milligan
Paul Milligan is an illustrator and designer living in Oklahoma (though truthfully his heart belongs to Texas). His work has appeared in various independent publications and he has self-published a number of his own comics. Currently Paul is working on more projects than can really be good for his sanity. His 24-Hour Comic Day trilogy, "The God of Rock" is currently running as a webcomic at www.space-gun.com/godofrock. You can see more of his artwork online at www.stumblebumstudios.com.
Paul says: Welcome to Wildcat's - the most dangerous dive in the DCU. In the newly combined DC/Wildstorm universe semi-retired superhero Wildcat (a.k.a. Ted Grant) opens a "superheroes only" bar called Wildcat's. This new bar is built on the same location where the notorious Clark's Bar & Grille once stood before it was burned to the ground during a massive superhuman brawl. Working at the bar are Cole Cash (Grifter), Zannah (Zealot) and Priscilla Kitaen (Voodoo), all former members of the WildC.A.T.S. who now run a mercenary business and secret war against the reemerging Daemonite threat out of the backroom of the bar. In this new universe where the WildC.A.T.S. existed alongside the DC heroes, Zealot and Ted Grant met and fought together (and sometimes against each other) during WWII. In turn Ted Grant was once a mentor to a teenage Grifter and taught him and his younger brother Max to box.
In a back-up feature Grifter's brother Max Cash (Condition Red) is a private detective who will take on just about any case, no matter how bizarre, as long as the price is right. But the biggest case for Max, and the one that consumes his every non-billable hour, is finding out why he's not as dead as he used to be.
WildC.A.T.s and Condition Red were created by Jim Lee and Brandon Choi. Read more...
