They’ve been fighting a war on Earth for centuries that their people have been fighting halfway across the galaxy for millennia.
The Kherubim forces here, led in part by Lord Emp and his covert action team, the WildC.A.T.S., have been helping humanity survive the secret invasion attempts by the monstrous Daemonites for years. But when the squad inadvertently find themselves on a return trip to Khera, they are shocked to find out they’ve been fighting skirmishes in a war that’s been over for hundreds of years.
What’s left for a team of super-heroes to do when there are no battles to be waged and no more villains to stop? Is Khera now the perfect utopia they’ve always dreamed of?
Well, in a word, no. This book is written by Alan Moore, and while it’s much more populist than much of his more erudite work (Watchmen, The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Lost Girls), it’s still a lot smarter than “Maul Smash! Grifter Shoot! Warblade Stab!”
This whopping nearly 400-page volume also sees a new team of WildC.A.T.S. rise from the ashes of what they believe to be the death of the former team, complete with a nastier attitude and a declaration of war against every bad guy in sight.
Featuring sublime art by the gifted Travis Charest, Alan Moore’s Complete WildC.A.T.S. is smart and simply sensational.
