Secret Avengers by Rick Remender (all of it)

I halfheartedly read the AvX stuff because it was garbage, but this is the first time I've readthe entire thing in one sitting. It's really quite enjoyable for a short little run of like 15 or so issues. The stuff with the serpent crown was okay but it was nice that Remender got to wrap up the story of Father and the descendants he began in Uncanny X-Force. I also liked what he did with the third Ant-Man. Venom in the team was great too even if it did feel a bit like he was the centre of attention.

Finished the Morrison Animal Man Omnibus, finally. Wow. Despite knowing where it was going, the Limbo issue was surprisingly powerful, and Grant's appearance and (near) monologue was wonderful and touching.

One of my favorite comic book stories ever.

Is that the one where he kicks the shit out of Batman and turns Gotham into a forest?

If there is one run I wish I could erase from my mind so I could re-read it over and over again with fresh eyes, it'd be Moore's Swamp Thing.

Yeah it's definitely one of his best works. The Rick Veitch stuff, from my recollection, isn't too bad either. I've got it all back home but I've only read it once.

You can always re read after a few years, that's what I'm doing now.

Batman was such a dick in that story.

Moore is an annoying self-promoting asshat, but his pre-Watchmen DC work is so damn fantastic that it gives him a lifetime pass on said asshattery.

It's easier to enjoy Moore's early work if you pretend he was inhabited by a brain spore right after he wrote Watchmen, which has slowly infested his brain and transformed him into a giant douche.

Even the stuff he wrote after Watchmen is fantastic. I have yet to read Supreme but his work on WildCATs as well as his America's Best stuff is great.

When you separate work from personality, it's usually the best. Except some of his recent stuff has become too sexually-driven.

I understand why Moore is angry with the comic book industry, and it makes perfect sense. But yes, sometimes he can be a bit too extreme in his comments (I'm thinking about the Grant Morrison problem).

I love all of Moore, from his early days in 2000AD, to Swamp Thing, Miracleman, Watchmen, V for Vendetta, to his ABC line, Top Ten, 49 Niners, etc.

Also, I think I'm one of the few guys who really enjoys his recent works, such as Lost Girls.
