5.0 out of 5 stars The fist two volumes of top 10 read like a police procedural tv show set in a world ..., 13 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Absolute Top 10 HC (Hardcover)
This is the comprehensive top 10 by Alan Moore,collecting all 4 of his books(top 10 1-2,SMAX,Top 10 the 49ers).If Watchmen was 'Moores serious/dark take on superheros in the real world,albiet an alternate history 'real' world this is the opposite but with the same outstanding results.The fist two volumes of top 10 read like a police procedural tv show set in a world where everybody from the main characters to the background characters have superpowers or some strange mutation of some sort.'Moore & Gene Ha clearly had alot of fun creating this world with countless background sight gags by Gene Ha & amazing comedic writing while dealing with some real world issues(this is Alan Moore after all)with a real satirical edge.SMAX on the the other hand is pure fantasy D&D style parody that had me in stiches more than once,while the art handled by Zander Cannon is really cartoonish don't be fooled into thinking this is for kids.In this world which is Smax's homeworld incest is an expected part of ogre family life,(spoiler)which is why he takes toybox along to act as his wife,unknown to her,But before you can say Bilbo Baggins they are on there own d&d quest with some hilarious outcomes.Seeing a certain famous evil animated baby holding another famous animated baby from Springfield at gunpoint was a smile inducing background gag with countless others.The last story 'The 49ers has Gene Ha back on art duties and what an amazing job he does(probably the best looking top 10 book)he sets the story in a noir like setting which adds to the feeling of being in !949 perfectly.This is the most serious,character driven of the storys but still has a good few laughs along the way.A great prequal to the vol1-2 of Top 10.All in all this is the largest Absolute book I own,with 4 books and a shortstory by 'Moore also included.It's jam packed with great writing and great art!A must for fans of comic books especially superhero comics but comics in genral!HIGHLY RECOMENDED!

Alan Moore at his maddest lol ,free to do what he does best ,inventive , clever , different and cool.Like one of the best 2000ad stories with so many different ideas ,unlike most of DC and Marvel , milking single ideas till they run dry.
