Alternate Title:Genesis.
Collecting 12 Issues:
  • Genesis #0.
  • Ex-Mutants #11-12
  • Dinosaurs For Hire #8-9
  • Protectors #13-14
  • Ferret #5.
  • Gravestone #3-4

TPB Cover: Genesis #0

Malibu was very briefly the publisher for Image, when they first got started. Image quickly became financially stable enough to publish themselves, and Malibu continued with what they had left. It didn't take them long to try to bring their remaining titles together with the Genesis crossover event. Comprised of Genesis #0, six parts and five tie-ins, this would come in at a very decent sized 12 issue TPB. As can be seen by the titles involved, this story arc includes the Ex-Mutants, Protectors, Gravestone, The Ferret, Man of War, and Dinosaurs For Hire.

I went with the title Malibu: Genesis, because DC has also had a Genesis story arc, and I wouldn't want there to be any confusion. The alternate title of Genesis is only suggested because that was the actual title of the arc.

For the cover, Protectors #14 might be okay, but I think my preference on this one would be an original cover. If I'm forced to pick a cover from the twelve single issues, then I'd pick Genesis #0, but without the foil embossed cover enhancement. Just the art.

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
