Interesting idea, some good standalone issues, but ultimately not a very memorable event. The opening issue focusing on Lilandra is by far the best of the bunch, and the Dark Phoenix one-shot is a great read, too. Bishop, absent since the Twelve storyline, makes a welcome return, but Ronan the Accuser winds up being a pretty feeble villain. I seem to be alone in liking Ego the Living Planet: say what you will, but as long as you don't take it too seriously, it's a fun idea.

A mostly fun crossover anchored by Kurt Busiek and Jerry Ordway's strong central story, but one that suffers from the overall tired state of the Marvel line in the year 2000.

This wisely chosen collection compiles most of the issues in a wide-ranging crossover where the many alien races of the Marvel Universe decide to quarantine humanity for good. The backbone of this collection is four issues by Busiek and Ordway--rock-solid superhero creators who provide old-fashioned but enjoyable work. Inter

Fun idea that ends up as a pretty bland story.

The great alien empires decide to use the troublemaking backwater planet, Earth as a prison, and so dump a bunch of dangerous aliens there for Earth heroes to have to deal with.

Sounds great, but aside from a couple good crossover issues was a dull read. Never really sparked and almost feels like marvel itself didn't care much about it.

One of worst Marvel crossovers ever... And that Us Agent "Judge Dredd" uniform sucked a lot. *Urgh*
It seems that after this Marvel authors forgot about the new Kree/Ruul shapes, but maybe that was just for the greater good...

Onestamente, Maximum security è stato uno dei peggiori crossover Marvel di sempre. Avrebbe anche dovuto avere degli effetti grafici permanenti, almeno sull'aspetto dei Kree, ma ci si è dimenticati in fretta di tutto.
Meglio così. Si salva solo la parte grafica, ma non tutta.

Can we rename this era of comics the Gaebage Era? What in the he'll did Kurt Busiek and Dan Jurgens do to Marvel? Why did Bishop and Gambit have their own awful series'? Answer me! It's not a wonder why Marvel declared bankruptcy.

Kurt Busiek is an American comic book writer notable for his work on the Marvels limited series, his own title Astro City, and his four-year run on Avengers.

Busiek did not read comics as a youngster, as his parents disapproved of them. He began to read them regularly around the age of 14, when he picked up a copy of Daredevil #120. This was the first part of a continuity-heavy four-part story arc;
