Tom Strong is a knockout!

I've recently been reading Tom Strong TPBs which Dean loaned to me when he was at my housewarming. It's a really REALLY good read...hell, most of what Alan Moore writes is fantastic! But he seems to have a certain flair when it comes to superhero-type comics, infusing them with his own flavour and humour. He goes absolutely crazy when it comes to his own creator-owned work...check out and Top Ten and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen to see how fantastic of a scribe he is in his recent comic work.

After reading Tom Strong, it kind of makes me wonder how good his other stuff for the America's Best Comics line (and offshoot of Wildstorm) are. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was the first series from that line and Tom Strong soon followed, along with Top Ten. Promethea is another highly acclaimed title and I wouldn't mind checking that out. Tomorrow Stories is another series from the ABC line and I'm betting that will be another super read.

Perhaps with more disposable income, I should collect all the comics that were published in the ABC line...TPBs of course since the single issues would be simply unaffordable!

Hey. I like what you've got going on here. I've been following your blog, and I noticed we have some interesting shared obsessions. I'm curious to see what your opinion is of the post I dropped at the Rodeo yesterday comparing American football to Aussie Rules. Hope to talk to you soon,
