Coup d'État was the Wildstorm crossover event that placed the Authority as the sole governing body of the United States and explored the reactions of the protagonists of other Wildstorm comics: Wildcats, Stormwatch: Team Achilles, and Sleeper.
The story ran across 4 issues, with each issue, of the single over-arching storyline Jim Lee described as a "stand alone 4 part mini-series event", is a one-shots focusing on the four different groups and created by their respective writers and artists.
There was also an "Afterword" issue including a preview to the second volume of Sleeper and a preview to the second volume of Wetworks, which was launched in mid-2006 by creator Whilce Portacio and writer Mike Carey.
The events later continued in Authority: Revolution.
