Great art work and an intriguing story. Perhaps Warren Ellis' best work? Certainly the best of his that I have read. The story telling here gets you curious, waxes philosophical, and makes you think. We've probably all looked out at a sunset and paused to wonder at it's beauty. But, there is a similar wonder and curiosity that strikes the heart at the edges of the unknown. Space, aliens, scientific advances, and the curious people that create/find them. Ellis captures some of this with the help of Cassaday's excellent art work. <br/><br/>This is not a normal comic book. I loved the homage to Doc Savage, Jules Verne, and other classic sci-fi characters. :)

It took me a bit to get into because I couldn't quite figure out what was going on at first; once the overarching story really got going I really started enjoying it.
