From the Publisher
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.
