On the surface, this book is the X-Files with spandex. Take a look below the surface, though, and you'll find a trip through twentieth century pop culture. The thing that makes this book stand out is that for all of it's dark plotlines and conspiracies, it never loses it's sense of wonder. The first book is structured much differently than a standard graphic novel. The stories are mostly self-contained. The Planetary don't spend much time fighting 'bad guys'. Instead, the plots rest on uncovering new wonders. Once they are discovered, they move on. This is much less the case as the series progresses beyond the first book. This series is just plain fun. John Cassaday's artwork is beautiful. You can almost follow some stories by it alone. You'd be missing out on Ellis' brilliant dialogue, though. A must read for fans of superheroes, pulp fiction, and late night monster movies.

Uber comic scribe Warren Ellis delivers one of his best stories with Planetary, the stories of three archeologists for an organization known as Planetary. But they are not regular archeologists, they search for the earth's secret history. They uncover ghost cops in china and radioactive creatures in the pacific. Although the concept is dificult to understand and you often have to think about what you read, it's a fantstic book. It's a strange world. Lets keep it that way.
