For many reading comics today, WildStorm may be a small footnote in the history of DC Comics or a pit stop in Jim Lee’s path to becoming one of the most powerful figures in comics. For those of a certain age it was something more. If you’re more than a casual fan, someone who perhaps knows what the “C.A.T.” in WildC.A.T.s stood for or always wondered what Aegis Entertainment was, there’s a new project you should know about: WildStorm Oral History.
Artist and Image Comics co-founder Whilce Portacio is returning to his roots with the launch of a comics studio in his native Philippines.
Portacio, who turns 50 this year, announced on his Facebook fan page that he’s conducting a talent search for artists to work alongside him in a “new kind of art studio” in Manila. The veteran artist, who’s worked in comics since 1984, is offering salaried positions for pencilers, inkers and colorists.
