Format: Hardcover
This is a brief crossover between Warren Ellis' team of archaeologists set on uncovering the world's secret history, and the Batman. Planetary go to Gotham City to find a man who has escaped from a secret concentration camp where his parents were murdered and horrible experiments conducted on him, and discover who was behind this. The man's abilities enable him to jump between parallel universes and as Planetary are taken along with him, they notice the Batman undergo some startling changes too.

The book is brief at 48 pages but an enjoyable romp for fans of Planetary. It helps if you're a Batman fan as well as Batman undergoes visual changes going from 90s Batman to 00s Batman to 60s Batman to 80s Batman, each time looking different as he is drawn in the style of a certain era by a certain artist.

It's not a bad read but all too brief and really only serves to have Planetary and Batman meet rather than go through a particularly satisfying adventure. John Cassaday's artwork though continues to be a revelation.

The deluxe edition includes the entire script for the story as written by Warren Ellis but that's it. It looks nice in a shiny sleeve and hardback but it's hardly deluxe.
