DC has officially announced that it will shutter the Wildstorm Universe in December and just absorb all the ancillary comics (the licensed stuff mostly) into the DC Comics line. Editors in Chief Jim Lee and Dan Didio say that the characters from the Wildstrom Universe might pop up in the future (heck, likely WILL pop up in the future), but for now, the inter-connected line of comics is done.
That is some rough news.
Not shocking news entirely, but still pretty rough, especially since Wildstorm’s founder is one of DC’s Editors in Chief!
