A very mixed bag. Personally, I find Alan Moore is at his best on stories such as "Tygers" a psychological horror story, or part two of "Fathers Day," where he's using the genre to question it's own black-and-white value system. Far weaker are his overly celebrated Superman stories that posit the Man of Steel as a character who craves to settle down and live a middle-class family existence. As fiction, this is collection is mediocre, but mediocrity tends to be the high standard for super-hero fare; best for people who don't read outside the genre. ( )

Read it mostly for 'Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?' But I also enjoyed some of the other stories, such as the one about Mogo the Green Lantern, and 'The Killing Joke' ( )

Good collection. I actually liked some of the more sci-fiy ones. And a superman story I actually kind of liked. Who knew?

A better take on some traditional characters. I'm not a comic fan though. just trying our Alan Moores works. :/ ( )

Not all stories are equally good, but the Superman and Batman ones are excellent. "The Killing Joke" remains one of the best Batman stories I've read, and it's still shocking and impressive and, well, good even after having read it a bunch of times. "Whatever Happened To The Man Of Tomorrow" was good, but in that case my expectations were a little too high, I think; the Superman story I liked best in this collection was "For The Man Who Has Everything".
