  • Originally intended as an adaptation of the second Wild Cards novel, Aces High, it instead evolved to being an original graphic novel, due to to Archie Goodwin fearing that it wouldn't be successful as a mere adaptation.[1]
  • The story primarily takes place between the events of the fifth novel, Down and Dirty, and the sixth novel, Ace in the Hole. Much of the story however, particularly within the first volume, is told in flashbacks to events from 1946 through to the 1980's, and recounts events published in the earlier books.
