Wildstorm: Michael Cray follows the former International Operations assassin after Christine Trelane makes him an offer to join her rival organization. The series promises to "distill the lofty conspiracies of The Wild Storm through a far more personal lens."

In addition to being the second comic to launch from the revived imprint, Wildstorm: Michael Cray will mark the first time that Wildstorm crosses over into the DC Comics universe with the Green Arrow's civilian identity of Oliver Queen on Cray's hit list.

Warren Ellis’ critically acclaimed relaunch of WildStorm gets its first solo spinoff series! Michael Cray, professional assassin, has been betrayed by International Operations and has an alien life-form in his head that’s either killing him, transforming him, or both. The only thing that can bring sense to his life is for him to do what he does best: kill the wrong people for the right reasons. But Michael needs support and resources to hit back against I.O., and he gets them in exchange for working with Trelane, taking out her targets, his way. First up? A sociopathic silicon-valley billionaire by the name of Oliver Queen!

Wildstorm: Michael Cray #1  goes on sale Oct. 11.
