Having brought John Byrne's Next Men material back to print, it was not the greatest of surprises when they also opted to release a nice TPB with Byrne's Danger Unlimited. The volume collects the four issues of Danger Unlimited that were released and also collected in a Dark Horse TPB in the '90s (sadly excluding the Torch of Liberty backups yet again), as well as Babe #1–4 and Babe 2 #1–2 collected for the first time (although also sadly excluding the Prototykes backups and special).

Lot of fun, just as good as I remember it from back in the old Dark Horse "Legend" days. I had not read the BABE stories in full that are included in this volume either, and those turned out to be pretty good as well.

All of this is a tremendous shame because it marks the pinnacle of John Byrne's artistic career before he went insane and stopped making good comics. While both of the tales collected within are reminiscent of Fantastic Four and She-Hulk, Byrne makes the concepts solidly his own. A

Collects Byrne's DANGER UNLIMITED series (4 issues) and BABE (6 issues), originally published by Dark Horse under the Legend imprint.

DANGER UNLIMITED is the more interesting and fun of the two series, as it plays to Byrne's strength's when he gets to mash up his favorite Kirby toys (FF, Challengers of the Unknown). BABE is less interesting as an attempt to apply his SHE-HULK sense of humor to a light-hearted sci-fi storyline. Look for cameos of Hellboy and Abe Sapien in BABE.

Só o traço único de John Byrne consegue trazer alguma redenção a este desastre, cópia mal amanhada do Quarteto Fantástico da Marvel. O decalque é quase certeiro e o único ponto de interesse é passar-se num futuro distópico onde a humanidade se encontra sob a ditadura benévola de invasores alienígenas. Quanto ao resto, desastre completo, tédio narrativo apenas aliviado pela mestria de Byrne no desenho de tecnologias futuristas.

Byrne's writing has the-opposite-of-grown on me over the years, but he can still tell a great yarn visually. While the DU story in here had potential, it is the Babe comics I wish had continued--they could have been epic AND hilarious. Comics from a bygone era.

The World's Greatest John Byrne Comic Magazine! Too bad it didn't survive past 4 issues. Have yet to read the "Babe" arc. Found this on sale at B&N. Worth it for FF fans (if you can find the collected edition cheap).
