The flagship title in WildStorm's Eye of the Storm line, WILDCATS VERSION 3.0 by Joe Casey, Dustin Nguyen and Richard Friend, has sold out its premiere issue at DC. Issue #1 arrived in stores on August 28 with a free 50% overship.
"We anticipated that readers would respond positively to the new spin on the series," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales & Marketing. "Even with our overship, the copies we had ready for reorders sold out really quickly."
"I knew from the beginning that the combination of Joe's stories with Dustin's and Richard's artwork was going to be fantastic," says WildStorm Editorial Director Jim Lee, who co-wrote and pencilled the team's original appearance in WILDC.A.T.S #1. "You couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of WILDCATS!"
