Read in one quick standup session at the library. Pretty entertaining, though it feels a little bit more like a setup for further stories. Would pick up the next volume.

Alan Moore's Yuggoth Cultures Limited Edition by Alan Moore
Rate this book
Clear rating
The Alan Moore stuff ranges from somewhat dull to kind of interesting. The non-Moore stuff is pretty much abysmal - and takes up more than half the book. Which means that I wanted to throw it across the room quite a fair bit.

Alan Moore's the Courtyard Deluxe Hardcover Set by Alan Moore

I liked the story. I did not like the adaptation, and honestly, did not see the point in adapting this short story to comic form. I also felt the art style did not fit the story. So, yeah, not very impressed with this.

Pertinent advice / reminders from a master. Useful for writing in all forms, not just in comics. Illustrations are completely pointless, though, since they have no relevance at all to the text.

It's a fun read, but wasn't something that necessarily worked well when adapted to comic form.

This has always been one of my favourite short stories of Gaiman's, and the adaptation and illustrations are top-notch. No complaints about anything.

Batman by Matteo Casali

I liked the art, but the plot seemed to be rather gimmicky – there's no real reason to use the four European cities at all. But yes, lovely art.
