Oh happy day! 😀 I’ve known that Grifter was a part of this set for a while but to finally see it on the official site makes me want to tear up a little *sniff, sniff*. Anyway, I was a Heroclix player back when it first came out and got out of it around the time they introduced the cards into play. I’m not sure if I’ll go back to playing full time but I will say never did I think ANY Wildstorm characters would make it into this game. So to have the Wildcats as part of this Batman set is a truly a great treat!
The end of the series comes with a very “safe” zero issue. The origins of Voodoo are not so much told as clarified as we build on things that were previously revealed in the series. The saving grace for this issue was the last page where Williamson returns to his strength from earlier in the series, which is the ability to leave us with a cool cliffhanger.
Ok, so we talked about this over the summer but I said I wouldn’t post about it until we started getting some official pictures. Well, FINALLY we’re starting to get some (the set is coming out in November). So first up is Warblade. And like the other Wildcats in the set, its his classic look.
Grifter’s zero issue turns out to be a major mind-screw and Liefeld and Tieri play with our senses, making the audience question what’s real and what’s not. It’s a very interesting technique and a bold choice for the zero issue. It’s not as epic as the last issue, but definitely sets up a ton of questions that carry us into the next arc for this series.
