really liked it

I really want this to be made into a movie, which maybe makes me a terrible person/comic book fan. This has everything a good movie needs--a meet-cute romance, invading aliens/ancients, baby talk, city-destroying action sequences, and a reluctant hero. It's so crammed with Morrison's absurd plotting, and would be well-suited to a movie that smooths Morrison's stylistic rough edges and standard-issue fourth-wall climax.
There's nothing wrong with this book, and so much that's awesome about it, including Bond's funky artwork. There should be more fantasy/superhero books like this one. Morrison's three Vertigo miniseries from a few years ago (this, We3, and Seaguy) need to be remembered as a nice jolt to normal capes and capers. It's especially impressive that Vimanarama and We3 are so easy to read, which is pretty rare in Morrison's comics.
