...sort of

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.

Okay, the whole thing about getting the moon too soon seems really silly. I don't really get what that's about.

But I do kinda like the idea of the Amazons being aware of what transpires in the outside world.

They were sound so civilized and enlightened until she decided to show off their superior technology by... popping out a buncha medieval weaponry. How is that better than the phallic rockets?

...And then she gets merked about ten seconds after takeoff, and the other Amaznots look at each other and go, "maybe that 600-years-ahead thing was a little bit of an overstatement."

Planetary could work as a TV series, either as a straight adaptation or "borrowed." Three super-powered beings attempt to uncover "secret history."

"Are you all superheroes?"
"...We're archeologists."

why couldn't we have had more of this instead of Grant Morrison's?

Ellis basically used this without changing anything as Diana in his Planetary/JLA crossover.
