Book Description

26 Nov 2003
Following the success of his run on Supreme, acclaimed comics writer Alan Moore (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, From Hell) was given the opportunity to write a mini-series featuring an entire superhero universe. The results were just as unpredictable, and ingenious, as his landmark work, Watchmen. An indispensable addition to the library of any Alan Moore fan, and an excellent introduction to his inimitable style for the uninitiated. Full-colour illustrations throughout.

Moore famously didn't try very hard with this. He was contractually obligated to do it, even though he had the talentless Liefeld (hilariously) criticising his work every step of the way. Apparently after SUPREME Moore vowed not to work with him again but couldn't get out of this one.
You can tell Moore just churned it out, and he's fairly apologetic of it in interviews etc. One to avoid unless you're a Moore completist.

2.0 out of 5 stars A progression from Watchmen?!? 20 Oct 2004
Format:Paperback
OK, I don't write reviews very often, only if I have particularly strong feelings on something. Having read the reviews on the site about "Judgment Day", and being a masive fan of Alan Moore, I could not wait to read this book. The mean front cover also had me salivating with anticipation.
I'm sorry to say that I was sorely disappointed.
The foreword says that "Judgment Day progresses naturally as a follow up to Watchmen". A pretty bold statment in my opinion, as "Watchmen" is widely regarded as being one of the best comic book series of all time! What makes Watchmen work is the characters... you build up real feelings towards them, and as events unfold around them, you can't help but root for them. The characters in Judgment Day are largely a load of rubbish ripoffs from the Marvel and DC universe, and there's no real focus on any of them. I didn't care whether Knightsabre was guilty or innocent, because I don't know a thing about him! Maybe fans of the Youngblood series will love this, but to me, all of those characters looked like poor caricatures of Liefeld's earlier work on New Mutants/X-Force.
The action was also pretty fragmented, with every few pages being interupted with a series of flash backs throughout Earth's history that set the scene for the story.
This book really lacks the humanity, or the ingenious that I normally associate with Moore. Maybe it's because he's writing someone elses characters?
The artwork from Rob Liefeld (who I am also a fan of) was sub-standard. Characters looked very nice, if over-exagerated, but where were the backgrounds? There are some nice pages illustrated by different artists throughout the book, for example, the Tarzan homage or the vintage style Storybook Smith pages.
I couldn't wait to put this book down so I could forget about it. Think I'll go and read "Top 10" or "V for Vendetta" to take the taste of Judgment Day away...

5.0 out of 5 stars Imagineer 29 May 2004
By Michael Finn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Even super heroes can be held to account. I suppose that is the surface premise of this series of comics by the great imagineer Alan Moore. For me though I found the way the story was told more fascinating than the story itself. As a a whodunit trial story it's fairly easy to guess before the end of chapter one who the murderer is but like so many have said before me, with Moore's scripts it's the journey rather than the destination that satisfies the most. Moore manages to weave the art of writing for comic books within the very threads of the plot itself. From the market forces and trends of a comic book industry dominated by the traditional super hero to the stretches that writers will attempt to break free of the stereotypes while still retaining there jobs via the saleability of their work. It's very clever, very simple, very funny and above all very enjoyable. The art from Rob Liefield and a host of others is great too. The collected book is a superb tribute to the late great Gil Kane.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this on Kindle Fire 3 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Seriously, I love Alan Moore's work. This is the first, and last I'll buy on Kindle. The reason for the low review. Simply that it's unreadable. The text is too small for this for this format. You can't zoom in to read it and text to speech can't cope with speech bubbles so ignores it. What you do get is beautifully illustrated but impossible to decipher. Amazon don't seem to care, they've made their sale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 17 Nov 2010
By The Emperor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had heard quite a few negative comments about this title but I really liked it.

It is a clever tale that is told really well. It has a lot of the twists and turns that you expect from Alan Moore. The artwork is quite a big letdown though.
