3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing, 18 Jun. 2001
Following on from the previous two NML books, this one was a disappointment as it foregoes a lot of character developement for superhero slugfests, which the previous books did not.
It's the low point of all five books, but still worth getting to follow the other four, better books.

Batman: No Mans Land Vol. 2
Batman: No Mans Land Vol. 2
by Greg Rucka
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read, 18 Jun. 2001
Gotham's been wiped out by virus', earthquakes, and the US gov. But none of those storylines were well written, so no-one cared. So DC brought in Bob Gale (Writer of back to the Future), Greg Rucka (novellist) and a heap of indie comic artists to create one of the most interesting super hero comics in ages.
This continues on from book 1, and while not quite as good, is still a damn fine read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Biggest Baddest coolest Super hero comic of all time., 18 Jun. 2001
I know the Watchmen is more intelligent, the Authority more original, and X-men more complicated, but this is the most exciting comic ever written.
Building up to this for 25 odd issues, Morrison just goes mad, for his final story line and makes every story you've ever read, seen or heard seem small and subtle. This redefines epic.
More fun than most summer blockbusters, just buy this and enjoy. It ain't rocket science, but it's fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wierd for Batman, mild for Morrison, 18 Jun. 2001
Anyone familiar with the work of Grant Morrison will find this a bit on the mild side. The guys a surrealist drug addled genius, and this is one of the few mild stories he has done.
When I say mild, it involves child abuse the undead and cults, so it's not kids stuff, but it is well written. If you like Baatman check it out. If you want a mature mind blowing comic by Morrison , check out the Invisibles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the greatest stories ever told, regardless of medium, 17 Jun. 2001
Anyone who didmisses comics as "for kids" must read this. A sellection of short stories centering around a journalist in the future. The future is one of unbridled Hedonism and our "hero", a Hunter S Thomson-a-like, is a grumpy BAS****, yet a deep down idealist.
Shocking, thought provoking and above all entertaining, Transmet(as it's affectionatly known) reflects our own times and lives brilliantly.
Samuel Jackson, Patrick Stewart and Nicholas Cage are all fans, why aren't you?

4.0 out of 5 stars The start of a very scary ride, 17 Jun. 2001
This review is from: Stormwatch (Paperback)
Before starting his peronal opus of Transmet, Warren Ellis wrote Super heroes. But he didn't like Superheroes, so he reinvented them as foul mouthed fascists who decide to take over the world for the greater good.
The rot that set the Authority and Planetary in action starts here. To quote a character inside
"Didn't you ever want to change the World?"

4.0 out of 5 stars Violent swearing-fiiled thought provoking fun., 17 Jun. 2001
If you think comics are Dilbert, or the Beano, prepare for a revellaion. Because they slip under the censors raidar comic writers get away with more than any other medium. Forget Super heroes and other childish stuff, this is the real deal.
John Woo's violence, Tarintino's dialogue, Spielberg's emotion and David Fincher's humour, Preacher is a unique experiance. Part western, part romance, part comedy, part religious satire, Preacher never manages to be conventional or easily labelled.
Put simply buy this and be brought into a world of fiction unlike any other.
