The Planetary Omnibus
The Planetary Omnibus | Warren Ellis
9 posts | 7 read | 15 to read
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.

#bookmail have a trip coming up and I am so happy these arrived in time for it so I have reading material for plane and trains! Have to decide what to read first. Probably Planetary since book one was so incredible and I really want to read the rest! shame there's no more planetary after this! It's so good.

So I finished the first two volumes of Death Note ( sooo good and sooo incredibly dark!) and now I don't have any more to read so I figured I'd finally give this comic a try! I've heard only great things about it! I'm about a third of the way through and really enjoying it!

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Planetary rules so hard. 2y
hlgreenfield @TobeyTheScavengerMonk it's really good! I'm reading through this so fast! I've already ordered the second book because I know I will be wanting it ASAP!! 2y

I told a friend who loves comics that she needs to read PLANETARY, and she's all reluctant because she thinks it sounds boring.

To be honest, I'm offended as all hell and I have no idea where she's coming from. I really think this is gonna be like when I recced COMMUNITY to her and she said she wasn't interested, but a year later she was singing its praises.

TricksyTails I love Community!! Okay so I‘m thinking when I move to Canada we‘re going to need to binge watch Community while drinking Locke & Key beer! 😂🍻 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk My mind is reeling right now at the totally accurate connection between Community and Planetary and their approach to genre. I have a friend who is a fan of both and I‘m going to mention it to him so he can go “Whoa!” 2y

#12DaysofChristmas - Drummers Drumming

Oh man, Planetary is a spectacular comic book. Every issue is a different genre, as 3 operatives of the Planetary Organization investigate various global weirdnesses. One of those operatives communicates with technology through the beat of his drum sticks. I‘ll let him introduce himself.

This photo challenge was great!
Thanks @LibrarianRyan

GrilledCheeseSamurai Oh hell yeah! I loved this one back when I first read it! 2y
LibrarianRyan Thanks. 2y
JoRead You had me at weird 😂 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @JoRead The oft repeated mantra of the Planetary team is “It‘s a strange world. Let‘s keep it that way.” 2y
JoRead @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Sounds like a great way of living 😅😁 2y

3 titles I'm currently enjoying, since I could go on and on when it comes to comic book recommendations (ESP Alan Moore work). Lazarus, Lost Girl and Planetary are amazing.

I love books that are #fullofadventure (and a bit of humor) 😃 #booktober

LizzyM I have read all of these but the Planetary Omnibus. I haven't heard of that one? 3y
DeeLew I love Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. It falls into that rare category of books that I can read over and over and over. Don't forget your towel! 3y
