An imprint of Creator/DCComics which used to be an independent company. Wildstorm Productions was originally a company founded by Creator/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.

Upon crossing over with the Franchise/{{DCU}} in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', the Wildstorm universe was [[CanonImmigrant integrated]] into the DC multiverse as Earth-50, but due to lack of market interest and declining sales, the Wildstorm imprint was discontinued in 2010. With ComicBook/TheNew52, many of its characters and concepts (like ''ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}'', ''Grifter'', and ''ComicBook/{{Midnighter}}'') were imported directly into the DC Universe.

Six years after its discontinuation, it was announced that DC Comics would be {{reboot}}ing the Wildstorm imprint in 2017, with Creator/WarrenEllis overseeing the line and co-writing a flagship title called "The Wild Storm." Inspired by the critical success of [[Music/MyChemicalRomance Gerard Way]]'s Creator/YoungAnimal imprint, it'll bring back re-imagined favorites like Grifter, Jenny Sparks, and the [[ComicBook/WildCATs Wild CATS]].
