Alan Moore brings together a number of reprints from his America's
Best Comics imprint. This collection of original and genre
twisting stories features a number reoccurring characters
including Jack B. Quick, The Cobweb, Greyshirt
and the First American...
but I'm afraid I just didn't find this collection worthy of
such a fantastic reproduction job by Titan (Nice hardback
cover, glossy pages and a ribbon-style book mark.)
I laughed out loud at the First American and Jack
B. Quick during their first story I felt like the author
was revisiting the same ground on return visits (in fact Jack
B. Quick is replaced by Splash Brannigan by the
end of the collection. I found the exploits of The Cobweb
to be dull and only one Greyshirt strip was worth reading.
both 2000AD and Viz have managed to try similar
plotlines and have come out a lot better. Everyone remembers
2000AD's Tharg's Future Shocks and Viz's
Gilbert Ratchet is similar, but funnier than Jack
this is a mediocre collection at best and certainly not worth
the £25 asking price.
