An imprint of Creator/DCComics which used to be an independent company. Wildstorm Productions was originally a company founded by JimLee that was one of the original founders of Creator/ImageComics, and Wildstorm's comics were part of the Image shared universe. It was named from a blend of the titles of its two flagship team books, ''ComicBook/{{WildCATs}}'' and ''ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}''. However, when Jim Lee parted ways with Image, the ''Shattered Image'' CrisisCrossover was used as a CosmicRetcon to separate Wildstorm's Image titles into a shared universe all their own. Later, in 1999, DC Comics formally bought Wildstorm during the aftershocks of UsefulNotes/TheGreatComicsCrashOf1996.

This led to a golden age for Wildstorm as several of its most iconic titles were launched during this period.

A sub-imprint of Wildstorm was Creator/AmericasBestComics, created as a one-man imprint for Creator/AlanMoore's return to superhero comics.

Eventually, after a few {{Intercontinuity Crossover}}s with Franchise/{{the DC U}}niverse, ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' formally assimilated the Wildstorm Universe as DC's Earth-50.

In 2010, DC [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=28446 retired the Wildstorm imprint]] due to changes in the market. But that might have been no more than a head-fake, because the next year they [[http://www.comicsalliance.com/2011/06/09/wildstorm-and-dc-continue-to-integrate-on-the-edge integrated Wildstorm into a rebooted DC universe]], complete with a revived ''ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}'' ongoing.

Within two years of the DC reboot, most of the Wildstorm-based titles in the ComicBook/{{New 52}} had been discontinued, dismissing the characters into obscurity.
