Top Customer Reviews
Over all I wish I could have found more issues of the comic than I did when it was running and now I think I may have to go and look for the issues I missed.
As a whole, the works in this anthology run a gamut from average to good (at best), and almost all of them are marred by either faulty or simply incomplete research (one theory advanced turns on a piece of misattributed dialogue, for example - a correct attribution would disprove the theory).
All in all, this is a book for the rarest of things, a hardcore Planetary fan who has little or no grounding in literary or media criticism. The motto of Planetary was "It's a strange world, let's keep it that way" - a motto specifically invoked by this book's title, but a promise which it utterly fails to keep.

The essays are a mixed bag and some just cover the same subject. Planetary is one of the best comic runs ever however some the the essays do not do it justice.Published on November 14, 2013 by Carl W. Taitano
Some of the essays are interesting, some not so much. Not sure it was worth buying, really, but I did enjoy some of it.Published on February 3, 2013 by Amazon Customer
