Review:

Bringing interplanetary war to the streets, Wildcats: Street Smart collects the first six issues of Volume 2, reconvening the team in the face of a new threat. Fans of the series will appreciate Travis Charest's take on the characters and his stunning, obsessive attention to detail. Readers unfamiliar with Volume 1 might want to backtrack first--the characters and machinations are complex and not easily synopsized. Writer Scott Lobdell launches the plot quickly and powerfully with little time for traditional superheroic narration. Lord Emp learns of evidence of a powerful weapon in the hands of his nemesis, Kenyan, and assembles our heroes to stop him from using it. The story arc combines small-scale interpersonal development, well-built tension and suspense, and, inevitably, the dramatic fighting and explosions we expect and love from our superheroes. An interesting new addition to the Wildcats is Noir, a mysterious French techie who seems to represent a fin-de- siècle trend in comics toward strong, nonstereotypical gay characters. His clever banter, representative of Lobdell's ear for dialogue, sets the pace of Street Smart and whets the reader's appetite for the next collection. --Rob Lightner

From Library Journal:

The Wildcats were once a team of heroes fighting against the Daemonites, an alien race bent on taking over the world. When the Daemonites were defeated, the Wildcats went their separate ways, never to see each otherAuntil now. A new menace has surfaced, a madman named Kenyan, who is trying to use the aliens' technology to become the most powerful being on the planet. Street Smart is a collection of the first six issues of Wildcats, Volume 2, and also contains various sketches and character renderings as well as variant covers for all six issues contained in the volume. All the artwork in the book is absolutely breathtaking, and while the dialog is often trite, the story moves along well enough. An entertaining read that doesn't require too much thinking.AVincent Au, "Library Journal"
