Interesting in its origin and inception, this more a thought experiment than an actual story. Some of the illustrations are good, others not so much. I don't think I will ever re-read this.

A funny and entertaining collage of mad talent. The artwork came correct and Alan Moore did something great with the script.
If you want to know what it's like to be a creative, this is the gospel right here.

Holy crap, there were a lot of crazy good artists on this. One of the then-lesser-known artists I noticed tucked into the panels is the now-famous satirist Charlie Brooker. Though now he doesn't do much in the way of comics. Alan Moore is brilliant as always.

Some nice pictures from some artists I love, but the Moore script was as usually more hype than story. I bought this only because it had some bits by Garth Ennis. Did it show in the story? No.
