Planetary by Warren Ellis & John Cassaday

I’m sure many of you are familiar with this high water mark of comicdom, but if you are not, do yourself a favor and invest in the trades. I was trying to describe it to a customer earlier today and it’s tough to totally nutshell. It starts off sort of like an X-Files type situation where weird things are being investigated by a couple of agents. It diverts from there and becomes a much broader type of secret history/conspiracy with huge leanings on the pulp traditions. It works on more than one level and bears several readings, which is not all that common in most comics. It is a love letter to the pulps by Ellis & Cassaday that still holds up after all these years. Better, in my opinion, than that comic by that guy that they made a movie out of. You hear what I’m saying.
