Best of Tharg's Future Shocks, The by Morrison

4.0 out of 5 stars More Future Shocks!, 10 Sep 2012
I never read 2000 AD until recently and became interested in Future Shocks after reading the free comic book day 2012 issue of 2000 AD with "Whatever happened to the Green Pedestrian Palm". I then bought the complete Alan Moore Future Shocks followed by this book.

I've read most of the stories, The Vegetable Liberation Front, "Hotel Harry Felix" composer turned hotel for aliens are my favourite so far. The book is good enough to get 4 stars from me, it may have gotten 5 if I hadn't read the complete Alan Moore Future Shocks beforehand which I found to be more to my taste.

Captain Britain and MI13: Secret Invasion by Paul  Cornell
5.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read, 15 Aug 2012

This book got me in to Captain Britain just as Ed Brubaker's run on Captain America has got me in to that character, it's well worth… Read more
Complete Alan Moore Future Shocks by Alan Moore

Unfortunately I was out of the country, and probably a bit too young, to read these the first time round. I'm aware of Alan Moore and his many works but haven't read most of them. I'm also aware of 2000AD but had never read an issue before the free comic book day 2012 issue. That's where I read my first Future Shock and I loved it.

Coming across this book on Amazon the combination of Alan Moore and Future Shocks was too much to resist. I'm glad I didn't as the stories are really well written, a little bit dark and often funny. There are loads of good stories but "Last Rumble of the Platinum Horde", "Skirmish" and "The Wages of Sin" where an out of work repairman retrains as an… Read more
