Alan Moore’s quasi-victorian comic book series is getting better and better. The genre shifts from sci-fi to detective to god-knows-what next. Just when you thought you understand the parameters of where the story can go, Moore pulls another fast one. While the second series’ main storyline is riffing on War of the Worlds, it also delivers some seriously surprising developments involving the main characters. The Dr. Moreau bit was the first time in years I exclaimed at a page of cartoons. This is not to be missed.
