As usual the Top 10 characters were great and the art was a lot of fun with all it's special "guest appearances" although they may have been a bit overdone. Unfortunately the story on this one was just ok it had a kind of deus ex machina ending and the pacing seemed off, like he ran out of the room and skipped to the end. I'm not sure they needed to add new heroes to the mix either but at least they were fun.

Paul di Filippo writes highly entertaining and rather weird science fiction short stories, so I was curious to see how he tackles the world of comic books. It's very difficult to follow in Alan Moore's footsteps, and di Filippo doesn't quite keep up. He keeps up the weirdness factor for Neopolis, but I was disappointed at the ending, which is a bit of a deus ex machina that would have benefited from foreshadowing. The story includes some acerbic commentary on the authoritarian streak in American society after September 11, but there just isn't enough room in this tale for di Filippo to really develop that plotline. It was still fun to take a return trip to Neopolis, though.
