'Once GENERATIONS is presented as any kind of coherent "universe" or "ElseWorld", it completely falls apart. It's like looking behind the curtain and finding out who Oz really is. The "hypertime" inclusion springs directly from Alan Moore's infamous "but aren't they all" line, in reference to "imaginary stories". For some reason that became a battle cry for FAR too many over-aged, ennui-engorged "fans", people who simply could not accept the old stories for what they were -- or GENERATIONS for what it was meant to be. Sigh.' - John Byrne

On Thursday/Friday, I finally read Planetary, having read Global Frequency the week before. It's decent, but thank goodness I was able to binge read it, rather than wait 4 years between issues.

I enjoyed the Ellis's micro-takes on other, established characters and the way that their stories were told in their owns style.

You are a wonder, my daughter )

Lighting doesn't quite match. Etc. But here's my question: are there ANY comic books, drawn, painted, digital, you name it, that are 100% perfect, first page to last?" - John Byrne
