“The Protectorate 2 of 3: Inside Men” (No Spoilers)
I cannot believe how much story Beechen and Seeley pack into each issue. There is so much going on in these 22 pages I don’t know how they’re not making me feel cheated. But somehow, they’re doing it every month!
If there is one story that gets more screen time than the others, it’s Midnighter’s investigation of Zealot and her activities. During the parts of the issue that constitute Midnighter and Zealot’s story, we get a quick fight between Midnighter and someone (if you saw the preview you know who it is), we get to see Midnighter show some great emotion when he learns Zealot’s true plans, and finally we get a great cliffhanger which is going to set up an amazing fight next issue.

“The Protectorate 1 of 3: Groundwork”
This is the most solid I’ve seen Wildcats in a long time. We are five issues into this creative teams’ run and they continue to deliver each month. I have not walked away from a Wildcats issue of theirs yet and felt disappointed.
What are the strengths here? Well, first off, the debut arc was an all out three-issue battle. This left very little time for character moments and character development which is what some complained about. However, last issue gave us nothing BUT character moments with absolutely no action. It was a great “breather” issue. Here Beechen and Seeley start revving the engines to prepare us for more craziness.
