This collection is so much better than the first. In that collection, Alan Moore is finishing up story lines that he didn’t start. In volume 2, he creates a world that is entirely his own. And it’s awesome.

The horrific Arcane tale that takes up the first three or four issues is more than suitably horrible. It’s some of the best horror comic I’ve ever read. After that, these stories run every which way – whimsical, thoughtful, lustful – and succeed brilliantly wherever they meander.

The art feels more appropriate to the task than it did in volume 1. There’s some cool work done in the gutters, and the page-flipping art of the “vegetable sex” issue is well executed. This strikes me as a team of artists really hitting their stride. Can’t wait to read more
