I really enjoyed book one and this book continued to impress. Moore does an excellent job of developing the characters from the first book and adds a few new ones to the mix. The most enjoyable of the new characters is officer Joe PI who is a robot with a sense of humor. Joe PI integrates very nicely with the old team and generates some good story lines and one liners. The plots in book two are as good if not better than the first collection. There are tons of things going on on every page (many of them you will miss on the first read) but the book never becomes a chore to read. Highly recommended but you must read book one first. (ISBN-13: 978-1563899669).7/10

It took me a while to get into this book. For the first two chapters I was less than impressed by what seemed a generic superhero story but from chapter 3 onwards the interesting story lines and subplots really began to grab my attention. The  characters are pretty strange but Moore develops them nicely as  the book goes on and this really is a satisfying read.  The artwork within the book is good although the quality of the paper could be better. There is a lot of things going on in the frames and it is worth a second read to pick out some of the funny things going on in the background.  This book is definitely recommended for Moore fans. A lighter read than “The Watchmen” but none the worse for that.  (ISBN-13: 978-1563896682) . 7/10
