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. I don't want to say too much more in case of spoilers. If you like Future Shocks or black humour you will like this collection.

For anyone interested in the content and presentation of the book 26 future shocks are by Peter Milligan, 12 by Grant Morrison, 8 By John Smith, 4 by Neil Gaiman and a bonus story by Peter Milligan, for a total of 51 future shocks. The stories are arranged in to sections by author with an introduction for each one. The book itself is well printed in the original black and white it was drawn in.

This is a good collection of quirky future shock nostaligia. Yes the stories and artwork seem dated but that's what you buy it for. I remember reading some of these the first time they came out.

Why only 3 stars? The physical size of the book is too small. Many of the plates appear in such a reduced size that they are hard to appreciate, some text is hard to read and artwork has no presence at these castrated dimensions. Here's the rub, the Alan Moore future shock collection is the same physical size but more attention appears to have been given to readability of the plates. It doesn't suffer in the same way as Tharg's. So for that, it scores an OK overall. Good book, sloppy production.

A good example of how to craft short stories by the best comic book scriptwriters and artist in the business.
