Just arrived is this 1.5 inch thick trade paperback, 832 pages, collecting all the TOP 10 material originally from America’s Best Comics, now under the DC Comics imprint. Here are the original twelve-issue series and The Forty-Niners graphic novel by Alan Moore, Gene Ha and Zander Cannon, plus these miniseries: SMAX, TOP 1O BEYOND THE FARTHEST PRECINCT, and TOP TEN SEASON TWO with a few other short stories. Writers on the later material are Paul Di Filippo, Zander Cannon and Kevin Cannon, artists in addition to Gene and Zander are Kevin Cannon, Jerry Ordway and Andrew Curry. This was perhaps the most complex series from ABC, imagining a city where everyone had some kind of super-power, and then imagining how difficult it would be to police it. Alan Moore’s concept is essentially a police procedural with all kinds of superhero tropes added on. Wonderful stuff. Due out April 11, check with your comics retailer, or there’s an Amazon link below. Retail price $59.99.
