There are 1,001 people on the Global Frequency, connected across a worldwide telecommunications spider web from Nova Scotia to Tasmania. You'll never know when you'll get the call, but when you, do you have 30 minutes to save the world. Global Frequency — the last, best line of defense that you have never heard of. And if you're lucky, you never will. GLOBAL FREQUENCY: PLANET ABLAZE collects the first half of the 12-issue maxiseries written by comics visionary Warren Ellis and chronicling the adventures of Miranda Zero and her intrepid crew. This volume features a who's-who of great comics artists, including Garry Leach, Glenn Fabry, Liam Sharp, Steve Dillon, Roy Martinez, Jon J Muth and David Lloyd, and a cover by Brian Wood! GLOBAL FREQUENCY: PLANET ABLAZE tells tales of a number of Zero's associates, including Aleph, a sexy cyber whiz-kid who serves as the eyes and ears of Global Frequency. Then there's the 16-year-old South African computer genius, the former Soviet experimental weapons expert, the Australian cop and the ace marksman. These and 996 others make up the most diverse team of specialists the planet has ever seen. Their job? To save the world.
