There simply aren’t enough good things I can say about this great comic. Masterfully written by Warren Ellis with awesome cartoon styled artwork by Stuart Immonen, this book is one part comedy, one part action adventure and all parts awesome.
So what is Nextwave? Well, Nextwave is a team of obscure superheroes from all across the Marvel Universe who have been brought together by the Highest Anti- Terrorism Effort (H.A.T.E.) to combat terrorism around the globe. Discovering that the parent company of H.A.T.E. (the Beyond Corporation) funds terrorism, Nextwave goes rogue, steals their terrorist plans and begin to go from one adventure to the next trying to stop the BWMD’s (bizarre weapons of mass destruction).
This ultimate collection, (collecting issues 1-12) is just so frak’n awesome that I had to read it twice. That is how much I loved this book. And if you read it, you’ll love it too. And if you don’t… well then you must not have much of a sense of humor. So go out and buy this book. You will not be disappointed.
