The day I thought would never come has, at last, arrived. Okay, it will arrive … in December. Probably.
DC Comics’ solicitations for December contain a listing for Winter Men Winter Special #1, a 40-page issue that finally wraps up the absolutely fantastic Wildstorm miniseries by Brett Lewis and John Paul Leon.
Doesn’t ring a bell? I can understand. It’s been a while since we saw the previous issue — just about two years ago. That was Issue 5 of what was, I believe, planned as an eight-issue miniseries. But it went MIA just as we became utterly absorbed in the world of Kris Kalenov, Soviet super-soldier turned soldier of fortune as he eeked out a life in a post-Cold War world filled with criminals and bureaucrats (often one and the same) and ex-KGB agents.
Jog reflected wonderfully on the series here. Now I need to remember where I stashed those first five issues. Two years ago.
