In some ways this two issue series is the dark alternate-verse to Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross' Marvels. Like Marvels this universe is seen through the eyes of Phil Sheldon a reporter for the Daily Bugle who states, "everything that can go wrong will go wrong."
This series is amazingly dark in the way only Warren Ellis can be.
I think the only reason this hasn't been compiled is because it only runs two issues in length, but that shouldn't stop Marvel. They should still put this book out as a TPB just fill it out with interviews and sketches and such. Come on!
Fun Fact: I believe that Marvel made a poster from the Magneto cover (second issue). So check out Ebay.
