The Planetary retrospective rolls on with a podcast dissection of the series. WHERE IS THE FOURTH MAN? Sorry Jamaalamanaics, he was busy this weekend. But he’ll be back later this week in our Umbrella Academy review from the archives! Also, if you haven’t already checked it out, our Planetary Timeline has been updated with corrected images and more moments in the past decade of funnybook history!

Let Forever Be: A Planetary Retrospective Pt. 2

Filed under: Articles — Tags: , , — Chris Eckert @ 12:27 pm

As I discussed in our previous installment, Planetary finishes in a comics world quite different than the one it entered. Sure, Marvel and DC still have an effective oligarchy and pervert suit/nurse novel/ammonite pimp/fanmen still rule the land, but they do so in a different — and I will be so bold as to suggest better — landscape than what existed in 1999.

This timeline is a work in progress, and I know there are loads of important releases and business moves that I have not yet added to it, especially in recent years. If you think I’ve missed something, please let me know in the comments. But in the meanwhile, check out the timeline!

Thanks to Pedro for coding the thing in Flash, and thanks to the Gang of Davids (Brothers, Uzumeri, Cole) for input on dates and design.
