6/17: This book is actually better than I remembered, and I think that it has aged better than some of the other titles in the ABC line. Rereading Top 10 through a modern lens, for example, made me realize that the series is kind of weirdly fixated on homosexuality, prostitution, incest, bestiality and pedophilia as different strains of "perversion" that Moore had clearly not sorted out at the time of its writing. These are problems that are actually rampant throughout the ABC line (and, I guess ...more

What do I need to say? A child genius who tries to force light to obey the local 30 mph speed-limit. A science hero so dreadful that even a meaningless relationship with a woman is probably beyond his grasp. A sensuous sleuth who specialises in not being entirely successful at anything other than arousing her chauffeuse. And her male counterpart, who at least has the whole Philip Marlowe thing down. And an animated ink-blot who wants to be friends with possibly the most curvaceous woman every co ...more

Finally finished this collection of collected stories. Each issue of Tomorrow Stories had multiple stories (1 for each hero).

Jack B. Quick the boy genius was pretty funny and always involved silly scientific topics like arresting light for breaking the speed limit and cats with butter on their backs that could never land on the ground.

Greyshirt the Holmes-esque vigilante was probably my least favorite. Usually very dark and no that cool.

First American was hilarious as a kind of superhero version

Like any anthology it's wildly uneven.
Jack B. Quick is a wonderfully bizarre series about a boy genius and the havoc he causes for his parents and the small town he lives in. Like a really good kids book on acid.
Greyshirt while a rip off of the Spirit is at least a fun rip off with a cool looking main character and very odd villains.
First American tries to parody all those patriotic heroes of the GA, as well as popular culture but is too cynical and trying too hard to be funny.
Cobweb is mostly l

There are some really interesting comics here, comics that are very intelligently created. Unfortunately, there's not much story here. There's also some strips that do not work at all for me, which is a common problem with anthologies.

Reseña de Miguel Negrillo para Cabronos Extraños:
http://cabronos.blogspot.com.ar/2009/...


Norma Editorial continúa editando en nuestro país todo el material posible de las obras de Alan Moore bajo el sello de Americas Best Comics. Ya pudimos leer la genial maxiserie que es "Top 10" y, hace unos meses, vimos los finales de las series regulares de "Promethea" y "Tom Strong". Ahora le toca el turno a "Tomorrow Stories" que sale publicado en un formato similar al de las dos últimas colecciones que he

This was actually a collection of stories you couldn't sit and read in one go. Each "comic" had it's own collection of short stories, most of which were very funny and as such needed to be picked up and read in short bursts. I have to admit one of my favourite stories was the one where the superheros had to take on Jerry Springer. The boy genius who was everyone's favourite didn't do much for me. Americana even as a paradoy is a bit annoying. But I loved the pulp adventures and it was lovely to ...more

yep, he wrote 'em all. and mostly, they're sendups of the whole American superhero schtick. a lot of it is silly, snide, and very funny. don't knock it, that's Alan juggling time and quantum space, just for the fun of it: what a shame the setup didn't last. expect some notably original page and story design along the way. but seriously, the gorgeous series The Cobweb with Melinda Gebbie comes from a different realm entirely, with virtually no story but some sublime art drawing on totally differe ...more

You can tell Alan Moore had fun with this one, like a lot of more comical books in the ABC range. Not every story hits but enough do to make it an enjoyable ride. Jack B Quick, the walking disaster child genius is the best of the vignettes. The Cobweb is a domineering heroine who is a mix of the amusing and erotic. Greyshirt is a modern take on the golden age superhero. And First American is a spoof of the all american superman cliche. Good light reading, not many writers can pull of th

Like a lot of anthologies, it's got some good stuff and some weaker stuff. In particular, the Jack B Quick stories are very funny, and the "How Things Work Out" Greyshirt story is especially impressive (if a little reminiscent of Richard McGuire's "Here"). A lot of the super hero parodies seem like Moore's grabbing low hanging fruit, though. And the problem with these kinds of super short (usually 6 page) stories by any creator is I think they're a bit too brief to not feel kind of slight. That ...more

the cobweb and greyshirt stories were decent or good, but j quick and the first american were just absurd and awkward and ridiculous; i did enjoy the jerry springer homage because of its message though

Kevin Nowlan's work here is okay. But every time I see his work I always wonder where the great work is. After all these years, why didn't he put some effort into a special project on the side that would be all his and blow us away. I think he could still do it if he put his mind to it.

Me parece que tengo leídas la mayoría de las historias que componen este tomo. Pero como no recuerdo bien cuáles leí ni cuáles me faltan, seguirá como to-read hasta que le pueda echar el guante de nuevo.

Some of these are very clever, but they're mostly very sour and not as clever as they think they are.

I would rate it lower except that there were a couple of good ones and it seems wrong to do.
