This collection of Earth-shattering adventures from Windstorm stars a team of super-powered archaeologists who have uncovered evidence of super-human activity that spans the centuries. The team includes the ancient -- and incredibly powerful -- Elijah Snow, hot-tempered Jakita Wagner, and the seemingly insane Drummer, as they deal with the abrupt appearance of a new mountain range in America and the shocking truth behind the near-destruction of the planet by the gods, which happened in 1950!

Review: Planetary, Vol. 3: Leaving the 20th Century (Planetary #3)

User Review  - Michael Alexander Henke - Goodreads

Still great. We get some more backstory and the overall narrative continues at a good pace. Highlights include the issues; "Century", "In the Lost City of Opak-Re", and "The Gun Club". We learn quite a bit more about Elijah Snow's past as well as Jakita Wagner's origin. Read full review

User Review  - Adam Smith - Goodreads

I usually don't like graphic novel back stories, but this volume was amazing. I was actually interested in these histories and they were split up with modern stories to balance everything out. Read full review
