    For some reason, the ISBN associated with this book brings up both America's Best Comics, as well as the America's Best Comics Primer - Weird. Both are great and fun reads and if you're a fan of Moore, definitely worth your time.

    ¡Otro tomo cuyo contenido ignoraba completamente pero que marqué de una por ser de Alan Moore! Me resulta raro el nombre y que no haya podido encontrar una descripción. Pero de todos modos sigue siendo Moore, y todo lo que le leí en el sello ABC me pareció de muy bueno para arriba, así que seguirá en la lista. UPDATE: Algún capo subió el contenido: TOM STRONG #1, PROMETHEA #1, TOP 10 #1, TOMORROW STORIES #1 and TOM STRONG'S TERRIFIC TALES #1, with tales of Jack B. Quick, Greyshirt, First American, ¡Otro tomo cuyo contenido ignoraba completamente pero que marqué de una por ser de Alan Moore!

Si me pongo a promediar seguro que los #s 1 de estas series están más cerca de las cuatro estrellitas, pero como me parecen medio mamarrachos estos recopilatorios, me hago el duro y promedio para abajo.

    a sampler of alan moore's Americas Best stuff, most of which im unfamiliar with, so this was a -blast- to read.. ive read so much of his stuff that is so dark, its nice to see his humor come to the forefront. a sampler of alan moore's Americas Best stuff, most of which im unfamiliar with, so this was a -blast- to read.. ive read so much of his stuff that is so dark, its nice to see his humor come to the forefront.

    A fun if non-essential romp through the various America's Best Comics titles, largely not written by Alan Moore, collecting two specials and a sketchbook. First up is the America's Best Comics 64-Page Giant, which features a bunch of short stories from (almost) all of the ABC series. Most of the shorts are pretty forgettable, dipping their toes into the worlds so briefly that it's impossible to get a real feel for any of them.

First up is the America's Best Comics 64-Page Giant, which features a bunch of short stories from (almost) all of the ABC series. Most of the shorts are pretty forgettable, dipping their toes into the worlds so briefly that it's impossible to get a real feel for any of them. Even having read most of these titles I was left wanting more from each of them. I mean, the Top 10 story doesn't even feature any characters from the series except in a very limited cameo. The only standouts from this special are the Greyshirt story, told completely via fake advertisements, and, wildly, the Splash Brannigan story, drawn by the excellent Kyle Baker who's a perfect choice for making fun of 1930s cartoons. I say "wildly" because pretty much every Splash Brannigan tale from Tomorrow Stories is awful, so it was surprising to see it actually shine here. Next up is the sprawling The Many Worlds of Tesla Strong, written by Peter Hogan, in which Tom Strong's daughter Tesla has to try to find her missing friend who gets lost in the multiverse. I should mention, her friend is a talking gorilla. It's a pretty light-hearted, plotless story that gives a bunch of ABC artists the chance to draw Tesla and her mirror-universe counterparts. It's very similar to a story Alan Moore previously wrote in the main Tom Strong comic, so it feels like a bit of a rehash. For the most part, though, it's a harmless, humorous journey. Again, mostly harmless. There's an extremely weird two-page section where Tesla arrives in a world where no one wears clothes, and proceeds to be hit on by her mirror-universe father, who keeps trying to take her clothes off. It's... disgusting? I mean, even if you want to make the argument that it's not technically her actual father, she's still a teenager. It feels incredibly creepy, like a gross uncle wrote it, and the art style is very boob-heavy. I felt completely skeeved out for, thankfully, only two pages. So, again, not really much of a point to this one, though it has its moments. If you're for some reason reading through the entire ABC library, like I am, then give it a read. Otherwise, skip it.

    I didn't need much of a reason to be convinced of the quality in Alan Moore's America's Best Comics imprint. But to find this collection of first issues for only $3 was a deal I could not pass up. I had read about half of the issues contained within at one point of another. But I didn't own them and they were so very good that I did not mind reading them at all. In fact, I am glad I did because I am now wanting to give Promethea another try.

Plus, I have a near complete wish list in which I can look for the remainder of the other titles still in need of my consumption! Alan Moore might be a rather odd fellow in person. But I am a big fan of a lot of his work. His Swamp Thing tenure was amazing. Top 10 is probably in my top ten indy titles of all-time. And Moore's Vigilante stories and the Superman epic 'For The Man Who Has Everything' are probably some of my favorite one-shot tales ever! The ABC books are not that hard to find. But it's not the easiest of stuff to locate either. So when I can get my hands on something from that 1999-roughly 2008 line, I snatch it up without hesitation. I know that the stories from Moore are going to be excellent. Plus with a line-up of talented artists like Arthur Adams, Jerry Ordway, Yanick Paquette and Gene Ha, I know that I am in for a visual treat! Note: This book was originally published as the America's Best Comics Primer.

    I’m a big Alan Moore fan, of most of his stuff anyway, and his America’s Best Comics stuff pretty much passed me by when it was coming out. I picked up this book as a good introduction to dip my feet in and see if it was something I would enjoy. A huge yes, is the answer. The characters, and most of the stories, are an absolute joy, a feast of nostalgia with characters like Tom Strong ( a Doc Savage type) and Promethea (a Wonder Woman homage of sorts) hardening back to the Golden Age, and books I’m a big Alan Moore fan, of most of his stuff anyway, and his America’s Best Comics stuff pretty much passed me by when it was coming out.

It’s all great fun with tongue firmly in cheek. Considering this book had several stories, and only a couple of misfires, I’d say that’s a solid return for your time. Would definitely recommend.

    This one was a bit weird for me. Essentially it's in a magazine format showcasing short stories with ABC heroes in them. The longest one was about Tom Strong's daughter Tesla, it's a full story and it succeeded in making me interested in this character and comics. I've especially liked the one from the Top 10 universe, about an accountant dealing with vampire mafia, had a good chuckle. There are sketches in the end, too, for the ones who like looking at good art. The art in the stories is wildly This one was a bit weird for me.

The art in the stories is wildly different because there was at least a dozen artists working on this but all is top notch. The best one for me is probably Chris Sprouse who drew the Tesla story. At 192 pages it's a steal in used comics section if you see it.

    I stumbled onto this compilation at my local library. It looked only vaguely appealing, but I thought I'd give it a shot, especially since I saw Alan Moore's name listed for writing credits. This book was so much fun! Alan Moore has a great talent for retro-future designs. It's a great break from the Marvel Super Hero stories that I grew up reading, and have now invaded mainstream film. In the right hands, any one of these stories would make for great tv or film. Also worth noting: unlike the Watc I stumbled onto this compilation at my local library.

    I'm not really a comic book reader, but I saw this in the local library, noticed the name on the top, and thought I'd give it a go. I enjoyed reading 'The Many Worlds of Tesla Strong' as I'm a sucker for parallel worlds, but my lack of knowledge meant that I probably missed a lot of references. The other stories didn't really excite me, probably for the same reason. I'll stick to reading self-contained 'graphic novels' for now.

    Trade Paperback that collects the ABC 64-Page Special, The Many Worlds of Tesla Strong, and ABC Sketchbook. A nice collection of material that wouldn't really fit in the other main tittles. Apart maybe, and this is where I have it stored in my shelves, The Terrific Tales of Tom Strange books.

    I dig what Moore is trying to do, but he does a better job of reinterpreting old comic book styles in his advertisements in the pages of his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series than he does here.
