In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-three extraordinary children were spontaneously born by women whod previously shown no signs of pregnancy. Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, To save the world. These children form a dysfunctional family with bizarre superpowers. When Hargreeves unexpectedly dies, the siblings reunite just in time to save the world once again. This deluxe edition hardcover reprints the 2008 limited-edition collection of the complete first series, including the expanded fifty-page sketchbook section.
