About the Author
Peter Milligan is one of "2000 AD"'s most prolific story creators, and has now, of course, graduated to much wider comics fame. As well as co-creating "Hewligan's Haircut" with Jamie Hewlett, Milligan created the classic future war story "Bad Company", in addition to creating "Freaks", " Shadows", " Sooner or Later", "The Dead" and"Tribal Memories". He also contributed several short stories and "Future Shocks", and has written "Judge Dredd "and "Rogue Trooper" stories. His work outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic has received enormous critical and fan acclaim; notably Vertigo's existentialist superhero mystery "Enigma", via "The Eaters", " Human Target", "Girl", "Tank Girl: The Odyssey", "A1", "Animal Man", "Batman", " Minx, Shade the Changing Man "and" Skreemer". " "His most recent works are Marvel's best-selling "X-Statix", a vicious pop culture satire, and "Vertigo Pop! London", a rock 'n' roll tale of the big city, and Greek Street also for Vertigo.""
Since his "Future Shock" debut in Prog 37, Brett Ewins has been one of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic's most beloved artists. Co-creator of the classic "Bad Company", Ewins has also contributed to "A.B.C. Warriors", " Daily Star Dredd", "Judge Anderson", "Judge Dredd", "Kelly", "Mega-City One", "Rogue Trooper", "Ro-Jaws' Robo-Tales" and"Universal Soldier". Beyond "2000 AD", Ewins was a co-founding editor of "Deadline" magazine, and co-pencilled and inked the hugely acclaimed "Skreemer "series, which he co-created with writer Peter Milligan. He also created "Johnny Nemo", which is now enjoying great success in Cyberosia Publishing's new US edition.
Steve Dillon is a fan-favourite "2000 AD" writer and artist, and the creator of both "Hap Hazzard "and the Irish Judge Joyce, who appears in several "Judge Dredd" stories. His writing for the Galaxy's Greatest Comic includes "Future Shocks" and "Rogue Trooper", while Dillon's pencils have graced "A.B.C. Warriors", " Bad Company", "Judge Dredd", "Harlem Heroes", "Mean Arena", "One-Off", "Ro-Busters", " Rogue Trooper", "Ro-Jaws' Robo-Tales" and "Tyranny Rex". Dillon shot to international superstardom as a result of his work on DC/Vertigo's "Preacher", co-created with "2000 AD"'s Garth Ennis, but he has also worked on "A1", "Animal Man", "Captain Britain", "Deadline", "Global Frequency", " Hellblazer" and "Punisher".
Duncan Fegredo has illustrated a number of comic books for DC and Marvel. He is the acclaimed artist of Enigma.

For those of you not having any previous experience with the X-Statix team ,fear not. Everything you need to know is here. You need to know absolutely nothing about marvel continuinty ,major events etc to enjoy this hefty volume. Just start reading and everything shall be explained as the story unfolds. You could also buy this OMNIBUS just for the art alone.Mike Allred always tries hard to be innovative and here is a fine example of how combinig pop art and comic art can be visually astounding! If you love Mike Allred's art ,I guess you have already ordered this volume.If, on the other hand, you have never experienced Allred's fantastic ,futuristic ,fabulous (and other f-words ,except one you potty mouths :p)now it's time to correct this mistake.
Long story ,short:Buy this volume.It's one of the best volumes in the OMNIBUS line.
There's so much humor, violence, and randomness that you will be completely thrown as to what comes next. Yet, for some reason you will find yourself incredibly attached to many of the characters, many of whom will die seemingly needlessly. There were so many times when I thought, "I cannot believe he killed off that character that I was so attached to," only to keep reading and fall in love with the very next few ushered into the team.
X-Statix is a constantly changing, media and corporation driven superteam whose members are so incredibly fun, unique, and addicting to read about in an X-Marvel Universe that has nearly run it's gauntlet of fresh ideas. It's a solid change of pace that I would recommend for newcomers to comics and veterans alike.
DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS SERIES!
It's the perfect companion piece to Morrison/Quitely's X-Men run. A stand alone, cohesive work filled with charmingly heart felt cynicism and a deep love of comics.
