Reissued with a new more "mainstream" cover but still the same old genius inside.

Ask most people and they'll say, oh yeah Watchmen blah blah blah. They are of course wrong.

The Ballad of Halo Jones (2000 Ad): Amazon.co.uk: Alan Moore, Ian Gibson, Lauren Beukes (Introduction): Books

I always found Watchmen a too sterile experience, not helped by Gibsons static art. Ian Gibson crams life and love into every single line of this strip, and of course Alan Moore is Alan Moore.

Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, still the best, followed by the first four Cerebus omnibi, true classics.

Graphically the Dark Knight is pretty excellent but story wise it's a bit light I find. I find it doesn't really repay rereading so much.

Cerebus was and always will be cool though.

First Tank Girl compilation for me.

My favorite Alan Moore was Miracleman.

KIMOTA!
