Comic Review 145 // Wild C.A.T.S vs Aliens by DC comics and Dark Horse Comics


Reaching the end of my Aliens vs DC comic heroes series. I have to be honest and say this one worries me the most. I'm not a big DC comics reader, but I know enough about Batman and Superman to enjoy the comic strips, but Wild C.A.T.S? Let's jump in and just see what happens.

Title: Wild C.A.T.s / Aliens #1 (was there ever a #2?)
Written by: Warren Ellis
Pencilled by: Chris Sprouse
Fluff: When an escape pod crash-lands on New York with injured StormWatch agent Flint enclosed, the WildC.A.T.s decide to get involved. Void teleports the team up to SkyWatch and into the middle of a disaster zone. They discover two things; for one, the aliens aren't Daemonite and two, they are going to have one hell of a time getting the survivors, and themselves, off the space station alive. But how can even the WildC.A.T.s survive an encounter with the Aliens when StormWatch has already fallen? Get ready for a horror/sci-fi/superhero slugfest the likes that have never been seen before!

I'm not sure reading this and reviewing is a good idea. I have to be honest and say I know nothing about the Wild C.A.T.S, which led to me caring very little about the characters in this one. It also was seemingly the second part of an ongoing story, something not explained very well in this part of it.

From what I can tell, it is a team of Superheroes fighting against Aliens in an under siege base. For once the characters actually had no idea of what they were up against, which is nice, and seemingly the Wild C.A.T.S were a dying series as so many of the characters are killed off. Sadly because of a lack of knowledge this didn't bother me at all. One interesting twist was an alien who was born with the superpowers of its host! But sadly there was only one and seems like some more fun could have been had with this arc of the story.

Ultimately a Meh for me. But I am sure Wild C.A.T.S fans would enjoy it. Let me know if you have read the comic and if you have, drop me a comment and let me know your thoughts.
