“The whole planet is an unexploded bomb. That’s why we’re here.”
This sums up Global Frequency, a worldwide rescue organization made up of 1,001 diverse and specialized operatives, whose expertise is called upon when all else has failed.
From the brilliant mind of creator Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan), Global Frequency is a sharp look at what some of the smartest minds in the world could do if they were put together. From bio-weapon engineers, to theoretical physicists to snipers and magicians, whomever it takes to get the job done.
In this collection of the first six parts of a 12-issue series, GF operatives face challenges as diverse as stopping a wormhole from forming in San Francisco to hunting and killing the bionic man and stopping an outbreak of Ebola in London.
Each story features a new all-star artist, including Steve Dillon (Preacher), David Lloyd (V For Vendetta) and Garry Leach (Miracleman).
Planet Ablaze is a fast-paced and clever collection that will have you clamouring for the second act.
