**** (4 out of 4 stars) - blastogurl
Planetary is one of the great comics to come out of the "post Watchmen" era.
With many comic books returning to tired storylines after the 12 issue collaboration between Moore and Gibbons, and Marvel in particular rushing to put a letter "X" in front of anything and call it a comic, the end of the 1990s didn't look like it was going to bring anything inspired or new in the way of Superhero comics, and then along came "Planetary."
This comic book almost defies description, it's mission and narrative are so unique and curious (The best way these characters and "team" can be described is as inter-dimensional archaeologists, maybe) As the series moves on, their explorations of other worlds and other "iterations" of heroes and fictional characters become an engaging and fun/frustrating focal point.
Just as Watchmen was a comic book about superhero comic books, Planetary is a modern myth/adventure that explores other myths, and also explores itself.
This is one of the most original "super hero" comics ever, along with Marvel's 1980s 12-issue Squadron Supreme; DC's Watchmen, Wildstorm's The Authority... and add 1999's Planetary to that distinguished list.
