First Look At DC Black Label’s ‘Waller Vs. Wildstorm’ #1

by Olly MacNamee

Amanda Waller has always been a hardass, and that’s not going to change anytime soon. And particularly not in a four-issue miniseries from DC Black Label called Waller Vs. Wildstorm. DC Comics have released a first look at the debut issue coming from author and national security reporter Spencer Ackerman and Evan Narcisse. with art by Jesús Meriño.

“In the late 1980s, as the Cold War stubbornly refuses to thaw, a new battle heats up, this time for the soul of the intelligence agency Checkmate. As the agency’s super-heroic public face, Jackson King—a.k.a. Battalion, the former leader of Stormwatch and the symbol of American might—has long suspected that Adeline Kane is up to dirty tricks overseas, engineering horrors that betray everything he believes about service to one’s country.

But King doesn’t know that Kane has a clever new ally—an ambitious young woman named Amanda Waller. She has her own ideas about how metahumans can serve their country. And honor, dignity, and long lives don’t factor into them”.

Waller Vs. Wildstorm #1 is out Tuesday, March 21st from Dc Comics/DC Black Label
