More Future Shocks!
on 10 September 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. 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.
