Official Press Release
As super-hero teams go, WildStorm’s Planetary and the Authority often seem like opposite sides of the same coin, occupying the same universe while taking diverging paths in the battle against chaos. Now, the story that brought together these two different-yet-similar teams for one spectacular adventure is back with a new printing of PLANETARY/THE AUTHORITY: RULING THE WORLD.
This classic one-shot, originally published in the summer of 2000, pits the two teams against invasions from beyond space and deranged gentleman-horror-writers in blockbuster movie-style action. PLANETARY/THE AUTHORITY: RULING THE WORLD is written and illustrated by fan favorite creators Warren Ellis, Phil Jimenez, and Andy Lanning.
“This reprinting was brought about because of the suggestion of Jim Hanley (of Jim Hanley’s Universe in New York City) that we bring some Prestige Format publications back into print,” says Bob Wayne, DC’s VP – Sales & Marketing. “We then conducted a survey of our retailer focus group for potential titles, and this project was at the top of the list.”
“I’m really glad to see this happening,” says Scott Dunbier, WildStorm’s Group Editor. “It’s too good a book to remain out of print.”
PLANETARY/THE AUTHORITY: RULING THE WORLD is scheduled to reach stores on April 17. The 48-page Prestige Format special will be solicited in the February issue of Previews (Volume XII, #3).
