1st volume Planetary and the Authority - Authority was one of Ellis's other major works, with a major focus on decompressed action. Technically, Authority and Planetary were supposed to be in the Wildstorm universe, but after the end of Planetary, the continuity got ignored. Anyway, the main focus of this series is on the Planetary cast investigating a Lovecraft inspired disturbance, while the Authority end up being the ones to fight it directly. I've never read Authority before, but this series definitely raised my interest in it.
2nd volume. Planetary vs. the Justice League. This series provides a major twist on the original story. Here, Planetary become the villains, becoming everything they fought against in regular continuity. However, the DC expies Planetary dealt survived, and Superman, Batman and Wonder woman fight back against Elijah, Jakita, and Drummer. While the main set up and cameos for this series were good, the ending wasn't, leaving a few loose ends that are very unsatisfying.
3rd volume. Planetary and the Batman. Here, Planetary travels to Gotham to track a man who can shift between universes. His powers end up bringing planetary into contact with different versions of Batman, from the Adam West, to Frank Miller, to Snyder version. Honestly, this was the best of the bunch, featuring just the right combination of humor and action. All together, this was a great addition to an already fantastic series.
The other two stories were fine. It was nice seeing Batman in two stories. I realize each of the three was a standalone, but they all felt disjointed and rushed. Someone said, "Let's put Planetary and Justice League together," and they shoehorned them into a story.
If you love Planetary - read it once - if not you can skip it.
