Alan Moore lauched several new series at once in 1999 under the "America's Best" print and this one was my favorite. A combination police drama and ode to comics of the past, the story and characters are well-written, and has many tongue in cheek moments, especially the Smax solo story. Gene Ha's artwork is phenomenal. The artwork in the "Forty-Niners" story, in particular, is great as the artists tried to do to this post-WWII storyline what the cinemotographers of Saving Private Ryan did to that to make it look more of the period. While Zander Cannon's pencils are more cartoony, they work well with the comical stories his work is applied to. Outside of the main story lines, the artists have thrown in countless references to other comics. You can read it a hundred times and still keep finding little details. A fun, fun book to both read and look at.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
