I just bought this TPB today and am about halfway through (
Legion just "died"
). Even at that point, it's such a fantastic read. You're thrown in at the end of a storyarc that I guess was finished off by Moore and he uses its events to create such a deeply intricate, incredible, and at points, moving, story. And I'm only halfway through.

Anyone else read it? I think this was Moore's only work for Marvel.

Cool - I'm gonna take a look at this.

If it disappoints you, you're allowed to smack me around all you want.

did you know that Moore was actually the person to name the current Marvel Universe "616"

Ha, yeah, that was in there. It's funny because it's a throwaway line in the book, and it's amazing how long it stuck for.

I know Moore is a genius the ramifications he has with one line which he probably thought wouldn't do anything has spawned so much more.

I just finished it. He really is a genius. He introduces two seemingly unstoppable enemies and how their parts are played is executed beautifully.

And Alan Davis knows how to draw some biddies.
