    Kingdom Come was interesting, and the artwork is incredible.
    Its not one of my personal favorites, but no Top 10 collection is complete without it either.

    Probably one of the best mini series in 15 years.


    Nope, that was Alex Ross and Mark Waid. :)



    Moore is probably the only mainstream "artistic" writer of comic books out there, and, as others have said, go and get his stuff. It's, if not always particularly intelligent, some of the most engaging comic book reading I personally have ever encountered.

    Check out "From Hell". That one was insanely intense.

    I give Alex Ross the most credit because it was his version of "Marvels" and was a 40 page hand writen project before Waid came in.

    Left to his own devices Waid wrote this ****:

    Alan Moore has been dining out on the watchmen for decades now. His superman, green lantern and swamp thing runs were great for their time, but his constant bitching about current comics and writers really pisses me off, especially about the new watchmen prequels, which so far have been outstanding.

    & their reconciliation brought a tear to my eye. Watching Billy's internal conflict and subsequent sacrifice was truly heroic.

    I was a Marvel nerd who bought zero DC. The Original Cover alone made me by the miniseries. Everything was great. When Billy threw Superman back and detonated the Bomb.....WOW.
