Basically a series of shorts set in the wake of Moore's Miracleman, Gaiman's work mostly feels unnecessary. There are a couple of good issues- "Notes From the Underground", about Andy Warhol in the underworld, and "Spy Story", about people who can't give up their obsolete espionage backgrounds- but you could give this a pass and not miss out on much.

There's an interesting change of tone between Moore's run and Gaiman's; Moore emphasizes the subtly sinister nature of a world run by superheroes, but Gaiman seems to mostly talk about how awesome it is. I don't know whether this was intentional, or what it might say about the authors, but it got to me a little.
