|WildGuard: Casting Call #1|
WildGuard: Casting Call’s premise is simple, auditions are being held for a super group, WildGuard, who will be featured on a reality TV show of the same name (Like Stan Lee’s Who Wants to Be a Superhero, but, you know, hopefully not terrible). Those who want a shot must audition against other heroes in front of a panel of judges (sadly, none of which are Paula Abdul).
The series, Casting Call, was set to run 6 issues with the purpose of defining the group. However, the group wasn’t only in the hands of the creator. In a brilliant move, fans were invited to go to www.wildguard.com and vote for their favorite character with the top vote-earner getting a guaranteed spot on the team (Spoiler alert: it's still not Clay Aiken).
|We're talking serious super powers and serious drama.|
The WildGuard title continued after Casting Call, with Fire Power, Fool’s Gold, and Insider. Each containing not only its own story arc but also adventures of characters introduced in Casting Call that didn’t make the cut. If you’re looking for something different and a little light hearted, then I definitely recommend WildGuard: Casting Call.
