Global Frequency is a worldwide rescue organisation created
to deal with any crisis that is too big or too dangerous to
be handled by conventional means. This organisation was founded
and funded by Miranda Zero who calls all the shots. Ms. Zero's
right hand woman is code named Aleph; she is the nexus of
the operation, in constant contact with whichever agents are
currently on the Frequency and co-ordinates their efforts
as they act as one.. Whether
you're a middle-aged linguist or a 16 year-old computer geek,
a retired detective or an ace test-pilot, if you're on the
Frequency you are the best at what you do and you are humanity's
last, best chance of survival...
the second book in the Global Frequency (GF)
range of graphic novels from Titan and builds well on the
stories that unfolded in the first book, Planet
Ablaze. However, this collection has a slight edge
over the previous volume - mainly due to the fact that it
starts to explore the background to some of the more important
members of GF - founder Miranda Zero and Aleph, who
is the eyes and ears of the organisation. The
story Aleph actually begins with the introduction of
Aleph into GF - told in flashback form.
collection kicks off with Detonation which is a very
tongue-in-cheek story with art work by Simon Bisley (who 2000
AD fans will know for his work on Slaine and Judge
Dredd). There's gore by the bucket load - as you'd expect
second story, which like several inclusions in this collection
seems to have no title, got me thinking about who would play
Miranda Zero if a movie were ever made based on this universe.
There were a couple of panels that had Miranda looking a lot
(who played Nina in 24) and thinking about it, she
would be perfect in the role.
possibly my favourite story was Harpoon - which sees
the global population under serious threat from the very people
that we have put in charge to run our affairs.
collection has something for everyone and is certainly worth
seeking out. Get on the Global Frequency!
