Otline with the individual series and mini series illing in details of the cast of heroes and villains that populated this universe Fortunately Chris Warner who penciled many of the issues and scripted almost as many provided an essay between the two that provides everything you need to know as many provided an essay between the two that provides everything you need to know what happened in the middle The story is that the dawn "of super powered individuals was caused by an atomic explosion that "super powered individuals was caused by an atomic explosion that a hidden alien lab underneath it The individual behind it all was considered a villain and was being tracked down by a group calling themselves the Seekers of Septenarius These aliens were tracking the man across the galaxy over millenia By the time they get here the explosion turned their enemy into the Vortex Man The three stand outs of this Dark Horse universe were X the Ghost and Barb Wire X was this world s version of the Shadow and had as much respect or the lives of criminals as that original pulp hero ever did He racked up a higher body count by ar howeverThe Ghost was a reporter who was killed while chasing down a story she then spent her after life inding the answer of who killed her and then continued to pursue criminals If you need a thumbnail sketch think Lois Lane with a couple of45s and the ability to disappear and pass thru walls Barb Wire was a bounty hunter as tough as her name who specialized in bringing down the super powered villains that began infesting her home of Steel Harbor A couple of years after the original comic came out there was a movie with Pamela Anderson Decent ilm but had nothing to do with the comic except or the name The inal conflict in Will to Power results in the death of a huge number of characters some them holder of their own titles X Ghost and Barb Wire survive the end with uite a ew others and continued with their own series or uite a time afterwardThis collection is an incredible look into what comics can do when the creators decide to push every storytelling boundary and come up with a number of tales that are truly adult in nature but can still be safely read by almost anyone Highly recommended to comic and non comic ans alikeFIND IT BUY IT READ IT I came across this comic while reading an interview with Joe Casey regarding Catalyst Comix which was somewhat of a rebootretooling of the Comics Greatest World s concept This is basically the worst excesses of 90s comics basically the worst excesses of 90s comics I m not sure if it s sincere or self parody or cynical But it s an event comic that never ends It s Several chapters in I igured out I was missing the point of this It was apparently meant to kick start a dozen different series or Dark Horse But the uality of the individual stories was highly variable rom ugh to meh to hmm And the raming story was impossible to crack. Opulated by supermen become a battleground or good against bad or bad against worse Is it true that with great power comes great responsibility or does it truly come with great license. Ow or anyone who may be considering reading this comic book in the uture here is my breakdown of the pros and consPros Some good artwork With a whole team of artists the artwork varied in uality across both series I particularly liked Mike Mignola s Frank Miller s and Dave Johnson s cover illustrations and Adam Hughes artwork mainly the acial expressions and the way he Dave Johnson s cover and Adam Hughes artwork mainly the acial expressions and the way he how X s costume "wraps around his Concept The ideas Dark Horse played around with "around his ace Concept The ideas Dark Horse played around with their superhero universe were kind of un and interesting I especially like how they used CGW as a launchpad introducing new information and characters in each issue Characters Some of the characters were really un and illed with potential particularly Grace Madison Ghost X and Mecha Cons First of all Costumes The costumes can be very awful at times some of the costumes have too much glam rock vibes Hero Zero looks a lot like Iron Man except with an inferior colour scheme Some of the emale characters namely Ghost and Barb Wire suffer rom sexual objectification X looks like he s wearing a giant leather diapernappy Characters As I stated in the pros section some of the characters are good and had potential to become really interesting in the hands of a good writer But the rest are just iffy try hard or just plain ridiculous This might be just my opinion though Most of the artwork Most of the artwork was alright but nothing really special or outstanding Some of it was just awful with clashing colours and scratchy drawings Concepts It might just be me but I hated Steel Harbor and most of the characters in it I think Dark Horse s superhero universe may have worked out a lot better if they had just ocused on X Ghost and Golden City and worked at creating solid stories surrounding themAs ar as the omnibus collection is concerned in some ways I think it was good that Dark Horse only made an effort to collect CGW and WtP but in some ways it makes the collection eel incomplete knowing that it omits all of the spin off titles such as Catalyst Agents of Change Motorhead Titan Out of the Vortex etc and the last title of the whole initiative Agents of Law Regardless I ound this interesting and I admire Dark Horse Comics ambition adventurousness and willingness to do something different These two maxi series and about a dozen other titles made up Dark Horse s Comics Greatest World It was their entry into the comic market that was being populated by Image and what seemed liked a hundred other independent comic book companies back in the 90s Unlike many of those others the CGW universe was populated by a huge cast of interesting characters with an overarching plotline that tied it all together The two series World of Power and Will to Power served as bookends to the pl. Nown origin that infected millions some to no effect some to horrifying agonies and disfigurement others with the gift of incredible and sometimes terrifying power But would a world ,


Back in 1993 Dark Horse thought it would be a good idea to start their own superhero universe While a ew characters like Ghost X and Barb Wire did break out this didn t survive all that long Dark Horse tried to revive this again in 2014 with Project Black Sky This omnibus collects the crossover that introduced the new universe Comics Greatest World and comic s dumbest title and its ollow up a year later Will to Power Comics Greatest World ollowed a ormat of introducing a new character each issue with one character meeting the next one in the ollowing issue There s an overarching story of some aliens watching everyone rom behind The Scenes While Searching For scenes while searching or heritic Some of the character are goofy as hell Some like Ghost X King Tige This was an interesting read Ever since reading Age of Reptiles I have been really ond of Dark Horse Comics and eager to read of their omnibus collections I was really curious about Dark Horse s superhero universe despite its eventual ailure and so was thrilled to discover that my local library corporation had access to this book I didn t grow up in the 90s so I can t really say how Dark Horse Heroes matches up with other superhero comics of the time This book collects the two biggest series in Dark Horse Comics heroes line Comics Greatest World 1 to 16 and Will to Power 1 to 12 with a written summary between the two series The summary describes the events which lead rom CGW to WtP These events were portrayed throughout various spin off series to CGW which were not collected in this omnibus The whole omnibus is really thick with over 450 pages the largest Dark Horse Omnibus I ve read yetComics Greatest World was the vehicle Dark Horse used to
launch its superhero 
its superhero In Comics Greatest World There Is World there is overarching plot spanning across all 16 issues Each issue begins with a one page prologue revealing the backstory to how superheroes exist in this Dark Horse universe basically aliens and a bombs introduces a different superhero or team of characters which as I stated above some of whom would receive their own spin off title not collected in this omnibus and explores one of our major locations Arcadia Golden City Steel Harbor and The Vortex which Dark Horse would set uture superhero stories in Each issue eatures artwork rom a different artist so the artwork varies across all of the issues Will to Power was a seuel series to CGW ocussing on the character Titan The basic story in WtP is that Titan yet another variation on a theme of Superman goes psycho and starts attacking everyone in the Dark Horse universe climaxing in his annihilation in the middle of a stand in city or Las Vegas As in CGW the irst page of each issue is a prologue revealing Titan s unfortunate backstory In the not too distant past the irst nuclear weapon test changed the world orever but not in the way we expected Unleashed upon the planet was a microscopic technological virus of unk.
