MEMPHIS, Tenn.  — WildStorm announced the development of an aggressive creator-driven line at the 2009 ComicsPRO Annual Meeting.

Several new comic-book series will be joining the WildStorm line, announced Hank Kanalz of WildStorm.  The titles include:

- “North 40,” by Aaron Williams (“PS238″) and Fiona Staples (“Secret History of the Authority”).

This is a miniseries about a Midwestern American town that holds a secret in its library — a book that brings dreams and nightmares to life.  It launches in June.

- “Red Herring,” by Dave Tischman and Philip Bond.
This six-issue miniseries launching in June was described by Kanalz as “The Daily Show meets the X-Files.”  It’s designed to be a series of miniseries, Kanalz said.

- “Sparta,” written by David Lapham

A sleepy American town built around its football team has a magical undertone.

- “Garrison,” written by Jeff Mariotte

“Garrison” is an FBI procedural miniseries in which agents are tracking down a serial killer.

Kanalz said WildStorm is committed to shipping these series on time.

“We’re sticking to our promise that when we solicit, that means we’re ready to go,” Kanalz said.
