"PLANETARY has been hailed as a timeless story that turned modern superhero conventions on their heads. Written by Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN) and with stunning art by John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men), this critically acclaimed, landmark series took a look at the inter-dimensional peace-keeping force known as Planetary. The trio on the ground includes Elijah Snow, a hundred-year-old man, Jakita Wagner, an extremely powerful woman, and The Drummer, a man with the ability to communicate with machines. Tasked with tracking down evidence of super-human activity, these mystery archaeologists uncover unknown paranormal secrets and histories, such as a World War II supercomputer that can access other universes, a ghostly spirit of vengeance, and a lost island of dying monsters. All 27 issues of the original series are collected in this hardbound omnibus edition"--… (mehr)

The complete series and the Planetary/JLA/Batman/The Authority are all collected together in this large format book. The larger size for the 27 Planetary single issues could be found in Absolute Planetary volumes 1 and 2. Seeing those and the other all together made re-reading all of them in the larger size makes me have more love for Planetary than I already had. It's in the same category as MiracleMan, Watchmen, Batman: Year One and Akira in my opinion. Its not something that I think someone should read in a digital format. You don't have the same sense of size and weight to this book. And yes, it is a large book but its worth its weight in gold. I can't recommend this enough to anyone who enjoys pop culture or a good mystery. ( )

Warren Ellis puts a dark X-Files spin on a century of pop culture heroes. The three members of the Planetary field team pry into the secret history of their world with eerie and disturbing short stories that pay homage and cruelly tweak pastiche versions of classic characters like Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan, Doc Savage, and the Lone Ranger as well as superheroes like the Hulk, Fantastic Four, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Everything slowly threads together into an epic showdown.

Ellis at his best.

Unfortunately and coincidentally, the morning after I finished reading this monster, Twitter was all abuzz about Ellis at his worst, with allegations of him being a sexual predator flying about. A hero with a dark side? Talk about irony. ( )

Classic Ellis. Quite the challenge spotting all the various homages to other comics figures. ( )

It took me a bit to get into because I couldn't quite figure out what was going on at first; once the overarching story really got going I really started enjoying it. ( )

Please. My name was Shek Chi-Wai. And there's someone I left behind. A woman. Siao Yim-Fong. Please tell her... make the most of these days. I've seen what happens when we die. Tell her it doesn't get any better than this. After this, there's nothing. Do you see? There's no sin, no hell for our bastards to burn in. No great punishment in the next life for the killers and rapists. That's why I was brought back. They need to be cut out of the world now. This time is all we have: we can't allow anyone to take it from us. And no-one understands that better than a betrayed cop executed in Hong Kong.
You never get tired of looking at the stars
