    1. Book Info: This collection containsPlanetary/The Authority: Ruling the Worldissue #1,Planetary/JLA: Terra Occultaissue #1, #645-650, andPlanetary/Batman: Night on Earthissue #1.ABSOLUTE RATING: 3+/5 starsSTANDARDIZED RATING: <3/5 stars>



    2. Leí cada historia por separado, y seguro guarde esta reseña para cuando me compre el tomo que aúna las tres (y mañana pongo los links que lleven a esas pobretonas reseñas). Si promedio para abajo es porque el resultado general es un poco más bajo que el de la serie, pero sin duda es mucho mejor que muchos otros que voto con tres estrellitas.


    3. This is a compilation of crossovers of Planetary with other DC & Wildstorm characters. They are enjoyable but not necessary to understand the basics of Planetary.


    4. Reprints Planetary/The Authority:  Ruling the World #1, Planetary/JLA:  Terra Occulta #1, and Planetary/Batman: Night on Earth #1 (August 2000-August 2003).  Elijah Snow, the Drummer, and Jakita Wagner are no strangers to the dark side of the world, but they are about to experience different types of adventures all together.  In one reality, they come together with their opposite in the world ruling Authority when a threat from the Snowflake could mean doom for Earth.  In another reality, P [...]


    5. This collection features 3 cross-overs between Elijah Snow's Planetary group and other teams--but Ellis isn't going to follow standard superhero meeting rules! The one featuring the Authority had the biggest promise: Ellis' team of super-powered overlords, who share knowledge of the Bleed (which features prominently in Planetary). What would happen when these 2 teams meet? Would Jenny Sparks have another romantic interlude with Snow? Alas, the teams never really meet, they just intersect. What a [...]


    6. It's a 3-star because one of the stories here is basically an Elseworlds (Alternate Reality if you don't know DC lingo), one is a not-team-up-but-sharing-space with The Authority, and one's just a damn fine Planetary story that happens to include Batman.None of these stories are bad, but I don't like seeing evil Planetary, and while it was interesting to see The Authority and Planetary be in the same place and not interact, I kept hoping for it. The one that really sings in this collection is th [...]


    7. Don't want to spoil anything, and these three stories have a TON of spoilers in them. Glad I read them after reading the entire main series as each comes from different "points" within the Planetary storyline/universe. I wasn't as big of a fan of the first two stories, though they were still good, but the third was great.The first story takes place sometime in the second half of the Planetary storyline, but not sure when. It seemed to be more of a vehicle for another of Ellis's comics but it was [...]


    8. In a series that explores the multiverse in all its complexity, it's only natural to send Planetary into other comic book universes. In the first story, Planetary teams up with the Authority to save the world, and because I have no experience with the Authority at all, I didn't really know who was who, but that didn't really make the story hard to follow. This is the weakest story, as the team-up isn't really a team-up (there's hardly any actual character interaction), but it does have a nice en [...]


    9. Okay, two of the three stories don't necessarily fit into Wildstorm canon. Hell, Planetary/JLA is an Elseworlds title, so it doesn't fit anywhere. Both are good - but not great - stories. So what makes this a five star book?Planetary/Batman: Night on Earth.When this came out as a Prestige format in 2002 or 03, Planetary proper had been on hiatus for almost two years. Warren and John felt they needed something to get the reading public back into the world of Elija, Jakita, Drummer et al. So they [...]


    10. Three alternate reality tellings of the Planetary quartet. Brilliant and chilling, Warren Ellis brings it. I enjoyed very much the teaming of Bruce Wayne, Diana, and Clark Kent. It also brings up the question: Where does it end? People with power always start with good intentionsBut the most brilliant entry in this book is Night on Earth, in which the trio seeks out John Black in a Gotham without Batman. John Black has an ailment which results in a lot of killing, and incontrollable phases throu [...]


    11. The Batman one is pretty good. Seeing the different iterations of Batman in the same circumstances is nice. I'm not sure how I feel about Jakita flirting with him, though. On one hand, that would be an awesome pairing; on the other, this feels really OOC for her and I kind of resent her getting turned into a sex object just because it's a mainstream DC crossover. The Authority crossover is silly and doesn't really hang together as a coherent narrative at all, which is sad because the Lovecraft j [...]


    12. It's hard to rate comic like this. First of all, there are three stories inside, all three connected to the "Planetary" series. As it's the case with most of such books, stories vary in quality. First, Planetary/Authority story is sort of broken and inconsistent, but two last stories compensate that. Story two, with the alternate Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman gives an interesting take of the characters connected to the "Planetary" universe. Such take will not be welcomed by everybody since here w [...]


    13. Tres historias alternativas bastante prescindibles, la verdad. Nada que ver con la historia original.El crossover con Authority es malísimo. No está ni la esencia de Planetary, ni la de Authority por ninguna parte. Una mierda que no debería ni de haberse publicado.El crossover con la JLA no está mal. Al menos podemos ver uno de los mundos alternativos que se intuyen en la serie original. Y bueno, realmente podría haber sucedido si los de Planetary fueran diferentes. Aún así, un dibujo nad [...]


    14. This is a collection of the three crossover stories from Planetary. The first one is with The Authority and, although I don't read that title, I did enjoy the plot with the Lovecraftian references, and the art, though not by Cassaday, was nevertheless very good. The second crossover was the one I least liked, mixing an alternate-universe JLA with an also different Planetary. The plot was interesting, but the art felt a bit out of place. The third story was in my opinion the best. We're back with [...]


    15. Not as thrilling as the Planetary series itself, as I'm not really sure where each of these stories fits in, but fun to watch the team interact with other WS and some DC heroes (several versions of each). Par for the course for Planetary, a lot of them end up dead. We even get to see the Planetary team as The Four- just as deadly and thoroughly evil as the ones they deposed in the main timeline.Unfortunately, The Authority doesn't do much for me. Aside from Jack Hawksmoor, who is a brilliant and [...]


    16. 4/5Warren Ellis - writerPhil Jimenez / Jerry Ordway / John Cassaday - artistsThree stories featuring "cross-over" type events where the Planetary group comes into contact with the Authority during an attempted alien invasion, an alternate-Earth Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman rise up to overthrow the tyrranical, secret-rule of their alternate-reality Planetary group, and a story where the Planetary group investigate a victim of the city zero science camp and are accidentally shifted through va [...]


    17. Three stories featuring the Planetary team in cross-overs with different DC/Wildstorm characters.The first story, Planetary / The Authority was the weakest story in the collection, somewhat confusing and not at all satisfying. Quite pointless even, in my opinion. The art was pretty good though.The second story had alternate versions of Planetary vs. alternate versions of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. This was a really good story weakened only by the so-so art.The third story, Planetary / Ba [...]


    18. Planetary is an alright series. I am not as big of a fan of the comic as most other readers have been. That being said this was a really good volume. It has one of my all time favorite single comic issues of all time. The Planetary/Batman crossover. "I am busy tonight. You are wasting my time and letting a lunatic escape." was all Frank Miller Batman had to say to make Elijah Snow quake with fear as Batman simply put his hand around his throat lightly. We were also treated with a guest appearanc [...]


    19. Much as I enjoyed some more tales about Planetary, I'm not sure that all of these were very good. The first of the three crossovers takes place within the Wildstorm universe and as a result, it makes sense in the continuity of the storyline. But the second story deals with an alternate version of the Planetary team, making it a bit confusing. We've come to consider the Planetary team to be working for the good of their universe, but here we see one with different goals. The last crossover seems [...]


    20. Another great Planetary offering from Warren Ellis & Co. It's an anthology of three stories, starting off with the Planetary/The Authority cross-over "Ruling the World" which I liked the least of the three. But then again, I don't really follow The Authority so that may account for it. The other two stories, "Terra Occulta" (a Planetary/Justice League cross-over), and "Night on Earth," a Batman cross-over, are far better. "Night on Earth" is one of the cleverest Batman stories I've ever read [...]


    21. This is a book of one-shot crossovers with Planetary and other various characters (namely The Authority, The Justice League, and Batman).While this book didn't have as much of that underlying intrigue and all of the homages paid in the regular series volumes of Planetary, it really did have some great moments. The regular series team of Warren Ellis and John Cassaday put together a not-soon-to-be-forgotten Batman story in "Night on Earth", the final chapter of the book. And while I didn't enjoy [...]


    22. I never actually picked up or read a Planetary book before and I was encouraged to read this one because of *tenenenenenenenenen* Batman. But man (excuse me for the pun), I was glad I actually got my own copy. It was an amazing ride. I would give it a perfect 5 stars but it fell a little bit short because I was not that aware of the characters. However, and this one is what I love about Ellis, is that you can pick up this book and enjoy the ride without worrying about any of convuluted back stor [...]


    23. While the Authority crossover didn't do too much for me (I got a little tired of Jenny Sparks yelling "Air Cav!" a million times), the DC trinity story was pretty good, and made me regret how quickly Superman and Wonder Woman (or at least, their non-copywritten facsimiles) were done away with in the actual Planetary continuity. But the real gem of this collection is the absolutely silly Batman story, which pulled together so many versions of the character in a way that was not just entertaining, [...]


    24. Abrazados como una fácil excusa comercial, los llamados crossovers entre personajes del cómic-book rompen de tanto en tanto la rutina para sorprender. Es el caso de los acá recopilados, donde los buenos guiones de Warren Ellis justifican la reunión de su PLANETARY con otros personajes en historias amenas como son la muy esperada reunión de sus equipos más vendedores en PLANETARY/THE AUTHORITY y los mitos Pop reinterpretados de PLANETARY/JLA. Sobre ambas se alza PLANETARY/BATMAN, homenaje c [...]


    25. This collects three stories in Ellis's Planetary series: "The Authority: Ruling the World," "JLA: Terra Occulta," and "Batman: Night on Earth." These were the first Planetary stories I'd read, and thus the whole thing was a bit confusing, but I still enjoyed this. I thought the Batman crossover was particularly good, with the artwork and style shifting from one incarnation of Batman to another. I think I would have gotten more out of this if I'd read more of the whole series, though.


    26. Mr. Ellis how I love thee, let me count the ways.This is 3 different stories. The first one was just kinda great. The second one was probably the darkest comic story I've ever read (and therefore really freaking great. The third was also you guessed it - great!This is solidly 5 star territory. I'm SOOOOOO glad I picked this up.Sorry to go into such excruciating detail but I think you get it. READ THISW.


    27. It was pretty much what I expected out of a series that is both phenomenally written, drawn, and involves a multi-verse. The inclusion of other DC heroes/teams/villains was great, and I really liked seeing alternate universes where the protagonists were less than amazing, moral, and ethical. It really gives a rounded view of reality that I think can be easy to lose sight of in comics, but very important to keep in mind.


    28. This was the first 'Planetary' Book I've read, and while I was barely able to follow the first of the three stories, the other two were very interesting, and the Batman story especially was fascinating. I love looking at different perspectives and alternate realities of characters and how they would change in different settings, so this was a very interesting read for me definitely. It also made me very interested in getting into some more Warren Ellis work.


    29. tres demostraciones de por que Planetary fue el mejor comic producido entre 1999 y el 2010, viendolosentre los heroes mas poderosos de su mundo y siendo mas determinantes manteniendose con un perfil bajo, demostrando que si ellos fueran los malos de la pelicula serian aterradoredejandonos agradecido que sean los Buenos. y finalmente mostrando al unico rival a la altura del Mito de Batman Snow su equivalente en su universo
