At a spotlight panel for DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee last week at Comic-Con International in San Diego, the famed creator/DC Co-Publisher promised "WildC.A.T.s" news in the near future and expressed interest in returning to "All Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder."
When asked if there would be a resurrection of his former Image Comics series "WildC.A.T.s" or Spartan, a popular member of the team who spun off into his own comic series, Lee confirmed, "The answer is yes." He added, "We will be announcing the details at New York Comic Con," which takes place Oct. 6-Oct. 9.
"WildC.A.T.s" was one of Lee's first projects at WildStorm (a part of Image Comics until the late '90s) after he departed Marvel Comics. When WildStorm was acquired by DC Comics, they also acquired the rights to print new "WildC.A.T.s" comics. While characters from the series, like Grifter and Voodoo, have popped up in DC's titles every now and then since the WildStorm Universe merged with the DC Universe at the end of 2011's "Flashpoint" storyline, the team hasn't had an official ongoing series in a number of years.
Additionally, Lee indicated that he'd "love" to return to his and Frank Miller's "All Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder," but says he and Miller are both currently far too busy to return to the project. The series was delayed indefinitely after its 10th issue, back in 2008.
