This is where I share my embarrassing revelation that, until reading Planetary, I had never read a single Warren Ellis creation. Furthermore, it was not too long ago that I realized that the bearded, tiny instrument playing musician Warren Ellis and the comics genius Warren Ellis were not one and the same.

That revelation out of the way, I enjoyed Planetary. I'm not usually one for superhero-type stories and that was what I expected with Planetary. Instead, I found the characters, with their anti-hero characteristics interesting, and I was intrigued by the odd sci-fi aspects of the stories. My only disappointment is that the individual story arcs were almost too short to really explain any of the strangeness occurring, and I find that far more interesting than the characters themselves.
