Read full description of the books:
Three and a half stars rounded up
Planetary now employs the ultimate power trio:
Jakita Wagner: field leader and all purpose, kick-ass, invulnerability. Yowsah!
Elijah Snow: The guy, who’s, um, dressed in white. Manipulates cold and has a wicked sense of humor. "Pass the coffee that tastes like a dog took a leak in it." Light. One sugar.
The Drummer: Annoying info-tech guy. “Take those drum sticks and shove them…”
This one has all the hallmarks of a decent Warren Ellis penned book: Interesting, well-developed characters; storylines, that if slightly derivative are fast-paced and absorbing; and witty interplay between the characters.
Planetary is some giant corporation that employs our heroes to investigate seemingly unrelated phenomena and things roll along smoothly until Ellis whips out the conspiracy theory crap towards the end of this volume.
It’s like taking the trolley to work in the morning, getting told at the halfway point of the trip, that there’s mechanical difficulties and we’re being forced to take a run-down bus that lacks air conditioning/heating and/or a shock system the rest of the way. We have to wait a half an hour for the bus and oh and the driver should have retired 30 years ago. Happy motoring!
Where was I? This is great for about 4/5’s of this volume, then you want to toss it across the room.
