Wildstorm World's End

Just a short post to start getting back into the swing of things.

If you aren't reading the new line of Wildstorm Universe books, you should start. The whole universe is currently contained in only four books (Authority, Wildcats, Stormwatch PHD, and Gen 13), which are being released one a week. Not only does this allow for a tight cohesive universe, but it doesn't stretch the wallet too much.
The new concept "World's End" is exactly what it sounds like. At the end of Number of the Beast, the world was essentially destroyed by a group of clones based on The High (yeah, the guy from the Ellis Stormwatch run. Awesome, right?) go nuclear all around the earth. Now, the majority of humanity is dead, and the world is caught in the destruction and fallout. Running through each of the books, there's also a series of four part back up stories focusing on individual members of Team 7, which seem to be leading to a bigger story involving all of the books. All in all the Wildstorm universe is really starting to rock, and quickly becoming the books I look forward to most each week.
