James Robinson is considered by many to one the best modern comics writers. His landmark achievement in the medium is his acclaimed run on STARMAN, which Entertainment Weekly described as “the best written super-hero in comics.”
Now Robinson's defining run on WildC.A.T.s is collected into a single volume, collecting his 1990s issues, which feature the impressive art of Travis Charest and other fine artists who provide breathtaking visuals.
Robinson takes over the reins as writer of WildStorm's flagship super hero team from comics legend Alan Moore (WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA) and continues the amazing adventures of the WILDC.A.T.S while stirring up the WildStorm Universe.

So, I was a weekly comic book reader, and full-fledged Marvel zombie when Image Comics and the Wildstorm Universe were first created. At the time I put next to no thought into these books. Since then my tastes have broadened significantly but still never read much from the original Wildstorm books. I found this relatively cheap and thought it was worth the gamble. Frankly, it wasn't. James Robinson takes over the writing duties for Jim Lee and delivers a nearly indecipherable mess. I was never sure what was happening and if it mattered. Part of the issue is the editorial decision in making this collection, as it doesn't collect a story but just Robinson's work. Its incomplete, to say the least. Its hard to believe that people enjoyed this then or now. The art was up and down. Travis Charest's work was good but sometimes rushed. The low point being Larry Stroman's work. It sill boggles my mind than an editor said yes to his pages. Overall, this book did nothing to make want to dive back into this universe. It was not entertaining and felt arduous.
