Synopsis

Grant Morrison's 13-issue maxiseries is collected in one mammoth volume. This imaginative series was a heady brew of big ideas, exotic locales and bizarre action, featuring some of the wildest imagery in all of comics, including prosthetically outfitted dolphins in scuba gear and a hard-smoking chimpanzee in Kremlin garb.
