This softcover collection is an incredible self-contained volume that captures Ellis' genius. If you have not yet read H.A.T.E. know that you are missing out and you should purchase this book immediately. The characters within are some of the most colourful that you will meet this decade, and Ellis' writing brings them to life in a way that has to be read to be believed.
The book is filled with tongue in cheek references to the Marvel U, and I can't recommend this book enough to any comic fan.
The line up for this book isn't the A line up of comics, not even the B. Probably the C team, but they get stuff done. It was a fun adventure watching as the story unfolded from one surprising plot point to another.
