This is a series of TPB's that do not get any where near enough recognition:
- StormWatch: Force of Nature
- StormWatch: Lighting Strikes
- StormWatch: Change or Die
- Stormwatch: A Finer World
- StormWatch: Final Orbit This was the best extracompany crossover ever because the Aliens from you know...Aliens invade StormWatch. A mulit company crossover that actually meant something. Brilliant.
Those are all just preludes for:
- Authority: Relentless
- Authority: Under New Management
- Authority: Earth Inferno and Other Stories
- Authority: Transfer of Power
The talent involved in these books are a who's who of today's A list in comics:
Warren Ellis, Mark Millar, Jim Lee, Frank Quitely, Bryan Hitch, Dusitn Nguyen, Paul Neary, Gary Frank, Tom Raney.
I cannot recommend these enough, these books set the tone for comics for years. These are inarguably the inspiration for The ultimate line of comics at Marvel, and countless influences throughout DC's new 52.
I Miss these books and reread through them at least once a year.
These are the books along with Travis Charest's run on WildC.A.T.s that made me want to work at Wildstorm. Unfortunately like Wildstorm(or because of) that dream is dead.
New Dream...Work on any character involved in any of these books over at DC and make them relevant again.

When you are first creating a thing you do a lot of work that never gets seen. I generally use the back of old pages for things like this. The underside of this page is a page from some Zenescope work i did a while's back.
When I drew this I was just trying to get the story tone of the project out of my head and onto paper. Not too cartoony, not too serious. Funny, but not slapstick. Referential, but not ripping someone else off. I want to pay homage to all of the genre fiction I love and shared with my son, the co-creator of Detective History.
