About the Author

Peter Milligan is one of "2000 AD"'s most prolific story creators, and has now, of course, graduated to much wider comics fame. As well as co-creating "Hewligan's Haircut" with Jamie Hewlett, Milligan created the classic future war story "Bad Company", in addition to creating "Freaks", " Shadows", " Sooner or Later", "The Dead" and"Tribal Memories". He also contributed several short stories and "Future Shocks", and has written "Judge Dredd "and "Rogue Trooper" stories. His work outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic has received enormous critical and fan acclaim; notably Vertigo's existentialist superhero mystery "Enigma", via "The Eaters", " Human Target", "Girl", "Tank Girl: The Odyssey", "A1", "Animal Man", "Batman", " Minx, Shade the Changing Man "and" Skreemer". " "His most recent works are Marvel's best-selling "X-Statix", a vicious pop culture satire, and "Vertigo Pop! London", a rock 'n' roll tale of the big city, and Greek Street also for Vertigo.""

Since his "Future Shock" debut in Prog 37, Brett Ewins has been one of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic's most beloved artists. Co-creator of the classic "Bad Company", Ewins has also contributed to "A.B.C. Warriors", " Daily Star Dredd", "Judge Anderson", "Judge Dredd", "Kelly", "Mega-City One", "Rogue Trooper", "Ro-Jaws' Robo-Tales" and"Universal Soldier". Beyond "2000 AD", Ewins was a co-founding editor of "Deadline" magazine, and co-pencilled and inked the hugely acclaimed "Skreemer "series, which he co-created with writer Peter Milligan. He also created "Johnny Nemo", which is now enjoying great success in Cyberosia Publishing's new US edition.

Steve Dillon is a fan-favourite "2000 AD" writer and artist, and the creator of both "Hap Hazzard "and the Irish Judge Joyce, who appears in several "Judge Dredd" stories. His writing for the Galaxy's Greatest Comic includes "Future Shocks" and "Rogue Trooper", while Dillon's pencils have graced "A.B.C. Warriors", " Bad Company", "Judge Dredd", "Harlem Heroes", "Mean Arena", "One-Off", "Ro-Busters", " Rogue Trooper", "Ro-Jaws' Robo-Tales" and "Tyranny Rex". Dillon shot to international superstardom as a result of his work on DC/Vertigo's "Preacher", co-created with "2000 AD"'s Garth Ennis, but he has also worked on "A1", "Animal Man", "Captain Britain", "Deadline", "Global Frequency", " Hellblazer" and "Punisher".

When Joe Quesada took over as Marvel EIC, he helped give refreshing takes on stale titles. While Grant Morrison took on X-Men, the aging and boring mutant militant comic X-Force was given a complete makeover by writer Peter Milligan and Madman artist/creator Mike Allred. Eventually re-titled X-Statix, the comic revolved around a team of mutant superheroes that were also big time celebrities, and frequently found themselves either dead or dying to boot. Featuring brilliant and surreal artwork to go along with being absurdly and darkly funny as well as being surprisingly addictive, X-Statix was a treat throughout the remainder of its run, as it found itself eventually cancelled due to low sales. This gorgeous Omnibus collects Milligan and Allred's complete X-Force/X-Statix run, which is wholeheartedly worth your time if you missed out on it way back when. All in all, it's a shame that Marvel doesn't have an ongoing X-book that is this entertaining or original anymore, because no X-book around today is even half as good as X-Statix was. That's right, I said it.

A red omnibus? Something must be wrong here! That was my first words when I opened the pacage containing the latest OMNIBUS Marvel has to offer (until the next one) Well,it's true. Both covers and the spine is in red ,which I find tasteful and suiting to the matterial.But let's get to the point immediately! Is this Omnibus worth it's price? Indeed it is. It contains every single story written with the X-statix team in it , a new foreword by creator Peter Milligan and some costume ideas, unused art by Allred ,alterante covers ,the original ending notes by the creators and if I'm not mistaken new inside covers by Michael Allred!
For those of you not having any previous experience with the X-Statix team ,fear not. Everything you need to know is here. You need to know absolutely nothing about marvel continuinty ,major events etc to enjoy this hefty volume. Just start reading and everything shall be explained as the story unfolds. You could also buy this OMNIBUS just for the art alone.Mike Allred always tries hard to be innovative and here is a fine example of how combinig pop art and comic art can be visually astounding! If you love Mike Allred's art ,I guess you have already ordered this volume.If, on the other hand, you have never experienced Allred's fantastic ,futuristic ,fabulous (and other f-words ,except one you potty mouths :p)now it's time to correct this mistake.

Long story ,short:Buy this volume.It's one of the best volumes in the OMNIBUS line.

Peter Milligan takes us for a voyage through a hilarious yet realistic romp of misadventures and political slurs. I was not so taken with many of the one-shots and mini-series, however the main story (X-Force 116-129, X-statix 1-26) is one of the greatest runs ever written. Period. Yes, it's that good. I literally could not put it down.

There's so much humor, violence, and randomness that you will be completely thrown as to what comes next. Yet, for some reason you will find yourself incredibly attached to many of the characters, many of whom will die seemingly needlessly. There were so many times when I thought, "I cannot believe he killed off that character that I was so attached to," only to keep reading and fall in love with the very next few ushered into the team.

X-Statix is a constantly changing, media and corporation driven superteam whose members are so incredibly fun, unique, and addicting to read about in an X-Marvel Universe that has nearly run it's gauntlet of fresh ideas. It's a solid change of pace that I would recommend for newcomers to comics and veterans alike.

DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS SERIES!

In the early days of the 21st Century, Marvel was ready to try anything. Someone (Alex Alonso?) decided to take the most underrated Vertigo writer and pair him with Dark Horse's least movie-making artist. Together with several notable guest artists, they creating an amazing 40+ issue satire/soap opera/super epic mash-up that perfectly captured the state of fame, pop culture and the comics industry that was gleefully out of place in the post-9/11 climate.

It's the perfect companion piece to Morrison/Quitely's X-Men run. A stand alone, cohesive work filled with charmingly heart felt cynicism and a deep love of comics.

A smart, witty, and relevant story set in Grant Morrison's time heading the X-Universe. Exceptionally written and complimented by Allred's artwork that harkens back to the golden era of the Mighty Marvel U. Heavy and complex themes set against a backdrop of pop culture set against a backdrop of super heroes.

I got this at an incredibly reduced price. However, I'd like to say this would be a bargain at double the cost. Mike Allred's art is truly brilliant. It looks like some incredible union of the art from the comics of yesteryear, but with today's dynamic action and nuance.

Pete Milligan's story is also fantastic. I honestly didn't see the end coming, and was sad when I turned that last page to find out there wasn't any more to enjoy.

So, in the final analysis, I recommend this to just about anyone who likes comics. Gorgeous art, engaging story, and a concept that STILL feels kind of ahead of it's time.
