    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Nov 8, 2022

    WildCATS #1 is a hit out of the gate. The characters are varied, standing out from each other. There are some fun ways the team's targets have infiltrated the DCU. I look forward to seeing who else they've corrupted and what happens when they have run-ins with other heroes. This issue was fun and a sheer blast to read. Read Full Review

    Segovia creates some great art in the issue. The action is thrilling and the characters and their designs are fantastic. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Nov 8, 2022

    Thirty years after the meteoric rise to the peak of comic stardom comes this all new series breathing life into this cast of characters that have been unfortunately shelved for the majority of the last decade. DC seems committed to making them work, especially since Jim Lee, the WildCats creator, is the current DC publisher. Rosenbergs first issue has given us a taste of what to expect, but theres something lacking here that just made it feel left behind, or an afterthought. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Nov 8, 2022

    In the end, it's not often readers get to spend time with Grifter anymore. Outside of this, it's only been Batman: Urban Legends and his recent appearance in DC vs. Vampires. Plus, this is just a limited series. I'm more than happy to see if the colors become a non-issue for me over the next couple issues while taking in a strong line artist and a writer who handles the main character so well.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 9, 2022

    WildC.A.T.s #1 is a fun debut that shows off a lot of potential. It brings back the nostalgia a bit but also does a good job of integrating this world into the ongoing DC Universe. It has me wanting to see more and even with this being a limited series, here's hoping we do. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Nov 7, 2022

    WildC.A.T.s #1 captures the voice of the original characters. Still, the mission makes little sense, no stakes or urgency are established, the art is mildly better than average (except for a horrible Grifter redesign), and the whole issue fails to grab you on any level. Read Full Review
