This is it - the long-awaited fourth and final graphic novel collecting the adventures of Elijah Snow, a powerful, hundred year old man, Jakita Wagner, an extremely powerful but bored woman, and The Drummer, a man with the ability to communicate with machines. Infatuated with tracking down evidence of super-human activity, these mystery archaeologists of the late 20th Century uncover unknown paranormal secrets and histories, such as a World War II supercomputer that can access other universes, a ghostly spirit of vengeance, and a lost island of dying monsters.In this volume, the team encounters an abandoned alien spacecraft -- but will the heroes beat their rival, Jacob Greene of the villainous "Four," to the ship? Then, Elijah Snow begins to pull back from his allies, acting increasingly in secret. Will he be able to draw the last of the Four out of hiding, and can he act before his teammates lose their faith in him? From the Hardcover edition.… (mere)

In 1998, Warren Ellis and John Cassady wrote “Nuclear Spring”, an underwhelming preview of the series that was soon to come. Planetary eventually spanned 27 issues and the story over a century, but more importantly, over a decade would pass until the final issue of story would be completed. No ending could live up to a decade of delays, certainly? I read the fourth and final volume of the story a few weeks ago; I’ve read it twice, and I think I have a handle on the ending. At the least, I may have a handle on how I feel about it. (Review continues here.) ( )

Issue #27 finally came out, & I dug up my back issues & read the series from start to finish because I wanted to get a sense of the narrative arc since this tale was 10 YEARS in the making.

The Verdict: this is one of the most brilliant extended storylines I've ever encounters. It will stand the test of time, up there with Watchmen and others of the 'hero' genre.

PLANETARY is ultimately a holographic version of the Arabian Nights; it can be read as hero-noir, pastiche/tribute to the history of comic books & pulp & pop culture, delightful space-time science theoretical exploration, or a personal story of redemption and revenge.

I was amazed that Ellis found a way to keep his narrative tone & pacing in tune over the course of 27 issues & 10 years-- that in itself is to be lauded. ( )

Planetary is not a long series, but it is so densely plotted that it could easily have been stretched out for several more volumes. In fact, that's pretty much my only disappointment with the series. The defeat of Dowling and Suskind felt especially rushed (although it made perfect sense), and I wouldn't have minded seeing Snow and his team have to deal with each of them seperately.

That said, the book's revelations feel completely organic and well-thought-out, ending the series without needing to completely kill off its world. I can't wait to revisit it now that I've seen the bigger picture. ( )

The fourth and final collection of Planetary comics. I was really astonished by what a satisfying wrap-up this is. Everything finally comes together and... Well, to say that it makes sense is to completely misunderstand the nature of the exercise, but it does all hang together surprisingly well. One major point does get resolved so suddenly that I couldn't avoid a bit of a "Wait, that was it?" reaction, but even that kind of works in context, and everything around it made me happy enough that I wouldn't be particularly inclined to complain, anyway. Also, there's beautiful artwork, nifty plot twists, inventive science fictional environments, freaky drug trips, weird (but based-on-real-science!) physics, fun flashes of humor, still more bizarre twists on familiar stories, and, through it all, the exhilarating sense that there is a profound and wonderful strangeness lying just below the surface of the world, ready to break through at every opportunity. I'm so glad I stuck with this series, after a slightly uncertain start. ( )

L’attente pour ce quatrième et dernier volume de la série Planetary, intitulé « Spacetime Archaeology », a été doublement longue. D’abord parce qu’il a fallu cinq ans au duo Warren Ellis (scénario) et John Cassaday (dessins) pour le finaliser et parce que j’ai dû ensuite attendre presque un an pour avoir la version en couverture souple qui correspond au reste de ma collection.

Je ne regrette rien. À mes yeux, Planetary est une des meilleures séries qui soit, principalement parce que son histoire de chasseurs de mystères et de héros pulp appuye sur à peu près tous mes boutons: histoire secrète, histoire cachée, multivers, ainsi que parce que Warren Ellis, biatches! Et puis John Cassaday, aussi, parce que son style est vraiment très, mais alors très chouette.

Bon, ce n’est pas tout à fait vrai: j’ai quand même un peu l’impression qu’il est temps que cette histoire se termine, pas tant parce que ça fait longtemps, mais surtout parce que je la soupçonne de commencer à montrer des signes du problème principal des histoires avec des super-pouvoirs: la course aux armements.

En clair, plus l’histoire avance, plus les niveaux de puissance moyens augmentent jusqu’à atteindre des degrés inimaginables. Et cette fin de Planetary me rappelle par certains côtés les débuts de The Authority, jusqu’à la mort de Jenny Sparks. En soi, ce n’est pas un mal, sauf que ce n’est pas vraiment le même genre. C’est d’ailleurs amusant de voir qu’il y a des parallèles entre les deux univers, un peu comme si celui de Planetary était un monde parallèle de celui de The Authority.

Cela dit, ce sont des remarques mineures par rapport au pur génie de l’ensemble, d’un monde qui considère que tous les héros pulps et/ou les superhéros ont existé – ou ont pu exister. Ainsi, cet épisode remonte aux origines du Lone Ranger, icone de la culture américaine et le relie au Shadow (ou, à tout le moins, à une version parallèle, mais identifiable de ce dernier, copyrights obligent). On découvre aussi les origines du Drummer, l’ur-geek qui peut directement lire les flux d’information (« Worst rescue ever ») et qui prend enfin une vraie dimension dans ce dernier volume.

Si vous hésitiez encore, la fin de la série devrait vous inciter à lire d’un trait les quatre volumes. C’est touffu, massif, intelligent et ça donne envie de jouer en pulp. Tiens, au passage, je vois sur la page Wikipédia française un parallèle amusant: il semble que le nom Planetary, qui désigne également dans la bande dessinée une série de guides, soit inspiré de la revue française Planète, créée par Louis Pauwels et Jacques Bergier, à qui on doit Le Matin des Magiciens. Une référence!
