CM Podcast 298 – Top 10 (1999 comic miniseries) Part 2 of 2

Welcome back to the 2nd part of the Top 10 comic review. This comic originally came out in 1999 as an Image comic. It was printed under Alan Moore’s imprint of America’s Best Comics. The writer was Alan Moore with Gene Ha and Zandar Cannon providing the artwork.

In part 2, I wanted to explore the themes of some of the storylines rather than just talk about the story itself. This comic can be quite humorist both visually and the jokes that are used. Gene Ha and Zander Cannon pack each page with dozens of comic book easter eggs that a long time fans will love. Moore also lays out a dozen jokes and funny situations for readers to enjoy.

There are also many dramatic and humanistic moments in the comic. I outline a few but this is just touching the surface of what the miniseries offers.

This was a favorite of mine 20 years ago and I had a blast re-reading again for this podcast. I left this review mostly spoiler free so that you can grab a copy of it and enjoy the 2 main plot twists.
