    When I was in grad school, a teacher told our workshop that if a published novel is 300 pages, the writer had to generate 1,200 along the way. I... Continue »

Publisher Comments:

Collecting the stories that first introduced the world to Planetary, this graphic novel features the adventures of Elijah Snow, a hundred year old man, Jakita Wagner, an extremely powerful and bored woman, and The Drummer, a man with the ability to communicate with machines. Infatuated with tracking down evidence of super-human activity, these mystery archaeologists of the late 20th Century 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.

Synopsis:

This first collection of Earth-shattering adventures from Windstorm stars a team of super-powered archaeologists who have uncovered evidence of super-human activity that spans the centuries. The team includes the ancient — and incredibly powerful — Elijah Snow, hot-tempered Jakita Wagner, and the seemingly insane Drummer, as they deal with the abrupt appearance of a new mountain range in America and the shocking truth behind the near-destruction of the planet by the gods, which happened in 1950!

This was a ton of fun. I felt like I "got" the concept of Planetary much better than I did with the last collection I read, probably because this is the first collection. :) The interplay between Elijah Snow and Jakita Warner is brilliant -- no one does snarky dialog like Warren Ellis. My current favorite line: "Why do I even have to say this? Why do I have to say 'get off the unique and probably alien living plinth that zaps the unwary'? What is wrong with my life that I have to say these things out loud to someone who's been in Planetary that long?"
