9780785120094: Omega: The Unknown Classic TPB

Marvel's short-lived superstar fought enemies both infamous and obscure, but it took his death to unveil the story of his life! It's demons, depowerment and drama when the Defenders discover the true secret of Omega and his mysterious charge! Plus, the death of a super-villain who, so far, is still dead! When was the last time you saw that? Guest-starring Spider-Man (if you look closely enough)!

Collecting: Omega: The Unknown #1-10 and Defenders #76-77 -- written by Steve Gerber, Mary Skrenes, Scott Edelman, Roger Stern, Steven Grant, and Mark Gruenwald; and illustrated by Jim Mooney, Lee Elias, and Herb Trimpe.

From Booklist:

In the 1970s, a number of young writers tried to shake up superhero comics by using them to voice real-world concerns. Foremost among these mavericks was Gerber, whose Howard the Duck became a cult phenomenon. He was less successful with the ambitious Omega the Unknown, which maintained two parallel story lines, one featuring mysterious, mute, superhuman Omega, who comes to Earth to escape his war-torn planet; and the other focused on orphaned, emotionless, 12-year-old genius James-Michael Starling, placed in foster care in Hell's Kitchen. As Omega fights superpowered villains and James-Michael contends with school bullies and inner city life, we learn more about their backgrounds and hidden connection. Too odd and ponderous to find commercial success, and not helped by pedestrian artwork, Omega was cancelled after 10 issues, and another writer tied up its loose ends none-too-satisfactorily in two issues of Defenders, which yet are included in this collection. Omega is fondly remembered by many, including novelist Jonathan Lethem, who has announced plans to revive it. Gordon Flagg

Review:

"Gerber and Skrenes' unfinished masterpiece, Omega the Unknown was one of the most offbeat tales of a very offbeat decade for comics. A young boy discovers that he was being raised by robots. After their destruction, he then discovers some sort of connection with a powerful (and oddly silent) alien--but the boy has mysterious powers similar to the alien! The alien tends to show up when the boy is in trouble. It is a strange book." -- Brian Cronin

"Omega The Unknown, though an unfinished symphony, is criminally overlooked. In its mix of kitchen sink realism and high flying fantasy, its puzzling ponderables and its imponderable puzzles, it was both an enigma in a puzzle box and drama exploring and exposing the human condition. And though the Defenders issues are unsatisfying in comparison...they at least offer the saga a token ending. And what there is of it...is quite unique. No wonder it haunts some people still." -- pulpanddagger.com
