More books I've finished reading today
The last Alan Moore book I read was nigh incomprehensible (even with extensive annotations), so it was kinda nice to go back to a time before he got so smart even Einstein couldn't comprehend one of his comics. There's actually a lot going on Captain Britain -- parallel worlds, an unstoppable superhero killing machine, the outlawing of superheroes, and a villain who can alter reality at will, but these stories were originally published in 8-page segments and they're pretty easy to follow. Alan Davis's art starts out horrible, gets tolerable but is nowhere near the mastery level he is at today.
