[=WildStorm=] is a comics imprint founded by Jim Lee in 1992, currently published by Creator/DCComics.

Originally an imprint of Creator/ImageComics featuring characters who appeared in the Image Universe, [=WildStorm=] was named for two of its flagship titles: ''ComicBook/WildCATs'' and ''ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}''. During this time, it also introduced characters and concepts like ''ComicBook/Gen13'' and ComicBook/{{Midnighter}}.

[[UsefulNotes/TheGreatComicsCrashOf1996 After comic book sales started declining in the mid-90s]], Jim Lee sold [=WildStorm=] to DC Comics in 1998. The ''Shattered Image'' {{crisis crossover}} served as a {{cosmic retcon}} to separate [=WildStorm=]'s characters into their own universe.

[=WildStorm=]'s split from Image led to a golden age for the publisher, as several of their most iconic titles (such as ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'' and ''ComicBook/{{Planetary}}'') were launched during this period. Creators like Creator/AlanMoore (who had the Creator/AmericasBestComics imprint created just for him), Creator/WarrenEllis, and Creator/GailSimone also emerged as prominent creative figures throughout the era.

[=WildStorm=] was [[CanonImmigrant officially integrated]] into the DC multiverse as Earth-50 in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', but waning market interest and declining sales led to its discontinuation in 2010. Many [=WildStorm=] characters and concepts (like Stormwatch, Grifter, and Midnighter) were imported into Franchise/{{the DCU}} as part of the ComicBook/New52, featuring prominently in their own titles as well as others.

Six years after its discontinuation, however, it was announced that DC Comics would be {{reboot}}ing the [=WildStorm=] imprint in 2017. Inspired by the critical success of [[Music/MyChemicalRomance Gerard Way]]'s Creator/YoungAnimal imprint, it brings back re-imagined favorites like Grifter, Jenny Sparks, and the ComicBook/WildCATs in a [[ContinuityReboot reset continuity]]. Creator/WarrenEllis, who led ''Stormwatch'''s transition into ''The Authority'', is overseeing the line, as well as writing its flagship title ''ComicBook/TheWildStorm''.
