The mission has gone sideways for the Cats team as they inadvertently run afoul of the last group they wanted to cross paths with… the Court of Owls!
It’s the fight of the year: Talon versus Zealot!
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Rosenberg crafts an entertaining and exciting story in this issue. I love the Court of Owls introduction to the plot and how Grifter has become obsessed with them as a threat. The story has great tension throughout and I am thrilled by the characters as well as the mystery of what the Halo Corporation is up to. The series is off to a great start and I cannot wait to see where it goes next. The Art: Segovia delivers some beautiful imagery throughout the issue. The art is fantastic and the action is visually thrilling.
Graphic PolicyWildC.A.T.s #2 improves on the first issue giving a solid villain for the team to go against and delivering surprises. This is a comic that delivers action but also the ramification of those actions. It takes what worked well with the original and updates things a bit with the team finally fitting in nicely with the DC Universe and delivering a bit more personality beyond how cool they look when they do battle.
Graphic PolicyMatthew Rosenberg and Stephen Segovia balance the corporate boardroom maneuvering and metahuman battles nicely in WildC.A.T.s #2.
ComicBook.comWildC.A.T.s feels like not just a love letter to the premiere Wildstorm team, but also to the Wildstorm universe as a whole. Rosenberg and Segovia made the right choice in making Grifter the point of view character, not just due to his popularity, but his biting, edgy personality simply works here in adding some serious fun to the adventure underway. There is a lot to really enjoy here whether you're a fan of the original team or not, and WildC.A.T.s feels like a worthy addition to the DC Universe that is also able to make light of its characters along the way.
But Why Tho?WildCATS #2 is a rocket-powered demolition derby of chaotic antiheroes and turbulent maneuvering by their diminutive overlord. Everything proudly feels like it’s set for self-destruct, and I’m here for the carnage, the character development, the jokes, and just finding out what the heck Halo and the Court think they’re doing. This team is having fun with this book, and they’re knocking it out of the park. Shimmy some room in your bin for the CATS and enjoy the slow explosion.

Comic WatchRosenberg and Segovia are back with the crew, and not only do they have to deal with being in Green Arrow’s home turf, but also the Court of Owls, and their Talons. Not exactly sure what the actual mission statement is, but my nostalgic kid insists on me following through. Rosenberg’s still developing the crew, and not everyone’s voice is as distinct as they should be, but Segovia’s knocking it out of the park.
Geek DadIt’s an odd comic, given how many characters from the first issue don’t really play much of a role in this one, particularly Fairchild.
Weird Science DC ComicsWildC.A.T.s #2 should aptly be re-titled to Random: The Comic. Rosenberg cobbled together a collection of scenes without any plot or transitions. Nothing is set up, characters act without rhyme or reason, and whole scenes stop without finishing before the comic moves on to something else.
