It’s been years in the making, but Planetary #27 may make its triumphant return in 2009!
Wildstorm announced a new “creator-driven” series of books at the ComicsPRO conference in Memphis that will make their way into stores in 2009.
One of the questions discussed is the legacy of Grant Morrison, whose WildC.A.T.S. and Authority relaunches were left unfinished. Hank Kanalz of Wildstorm said that WildC.A.T.S. “will be completed as a graphic novel, and will be solicited when it’s complete.”
The Authority, meanwhile, will be completed by Keith Giffen and a number of different artists.
In addition, Kanalz announced several new series.
PS238′s Aaron Williams will team up with Fiona Staples to create North 40, which deals with a Midwestern town and its hidden book of nightmares; Red Herring, by Dave Tischman and Philip Bond, will be a series of miniseries logged as “Daily Show meets X-Files”; David Lapham will create Sparta, a magical story about a town built around a football team; and Jeff Mariotte will mastermind Garrison, an FBI procedural tracking down a serial killer.
