Alan Moore is the only comic book writer dealing with superheroes I can still get interested in. Top Ten is his amusing and inventive “science-hero” police force, which keeps order in a city where everybody wears tights. It’s not Watchmen, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, or Promethea, but I admire the density of ideas. You’ll have the sergeant, who’s a dog in a cyborg exoskeleton, argue with Large Marge the giant bordello madam while the size-shifting coroner takes care of the drunken over-the-hill Godzilla trying to bust out his gang-banging junior, etc etc. Hill Street Blues with superheroes, they call it. Wildstorm, 2001. ***
