Widescreen Interplanetary Combat with Intimate Storytelling
From the moment Bryan Hitch launches with his pencils the first interplanetary siege of sky-spanning terrorists, the readers' pupils dilate to infinity and they are hooked. Throw in Warren Ellis's knack for creating memorable vigilantes who may fight for the earth but simultaneously terrify its own citizens (Apollo, Midnighter, Jack Hawksmoor, The Doctor, and The Engineer), and the result is a mesmerizing read that ascends in this digital form.
