Gene Ha's artwork is a major highlight for Top 10. His illustrations are gorgeous the colors that FX chose are so vivid and bright, everything pops. Gene Ha's character designs are perhaps the biggest delight to look at as every single character is so unique and memorable in appearance. Jeff Smax is one of the coolest superheroes in all of comics just from this one book. I have to hand it to Ha as his pencils and inking for Top 10 is absolutely stunning throughout. Also, thanks to Zander Cannon for his layouts and structure choice for the pictures in this amazing comic book.

Top Ten: The Forty-Niners (Top 10). Alan Moore. Top 10" may not have the emotional impact of V for Vendetta or Watchmen but that doesn't make it any less spectacular. Alan Moore absolutely cuts loose in this series where every one in the world possesses a super power, costume and heroic (or villainous) name. Top 10" refers to the police force whose job it is to protect precinct 10 from super powered criminals, aliens and various Gods. This is Alan Moore at his absolute funniest and cleverest.

Reviews about Top Ten: The Forty-Niners (Top 10) (7):

For those looking for a true spiritual successor to Watchmen, the wait is over. In a universe where every creature has powers and infinite worlds collide, are all still deeply flawed and relatable. From the eternal battle between mice and cats, to the sensitive issues of robo-human relations, no social issue is left untouched and the filth runs through every level of society, all the way up to the gods. The complexity and detail of the artwork is astounding, and the visceral feel of the action and emotions pull you so deep into the story you'll find yourself yelling "No way - awesome!" out-loud more than once! Hidden throughout the book are dozens background characters that you will find strangely familiar, turning the second reading into a "Where's Waldo" of comic and pop-culture references. Travel across multiple dimensions and parallel worlds where the extraordinary is just another day on the beat.

Alan Moore is truly one of the greatest writers in comic book history and Top 10 proves it once again. Top 10 is surprisingly hilarious as Moore's sense of humor is super biting and dives deep into the jokes of beat cops everywhere. Moore uses the absurdity of superhero police officers taking on futuristic robots and villains to rip into society's prejudices and flaws through these characters. Definitely the funniest work that Alan Moore has written.

Gene Ha's artwork is a major highlight for Top 10. His illustrations are gorgeous the colors that FX chose are so vivid and bright, everything pops. Gene Ha's character designs are perhaps the biggest delight to look at as every single character is so unique and memorable in appearance. Jeff Smax is one of the coolest superheroes in all of comics just from this one book. I have to hand it to Ha as his pencils and inking for Top 10 is absolutely stunning throughout. Also, thanks to Zander Cannon for his layouts and structure choice for the pictures in this amazing comic book.

Lastly, but not least, Alan Moore's story is a gripping series of police investigations in a dystopian city called Neopolis, in which every person is either a superhero or super-villain. It's bizarre, but brilliant as the superhero police cast must deduce who is committing the various murders, thefts, and drug dealing while coping with their buddy cop partnerships. Moore builds deep character relationships with complex character arcs to give each of these strange officers a memorable personality and voice. By the end you'll love Jeff Smax and be rooting for Robyn Slinger for sure. Moore is usually rather dour or cynical in how people act in his writing, but Top 10 shines as a hopeful ray of optimism for people's tolerance, understanding, and justice in the world.

I guarantee Top 10 will be one of the very best graphic novels you will ever read if you give this a chance. It's smart, funny, and so engaging to the end!

One of Alan Moore's best works. It's a wacky read that never goes completely off the rails. For example, a dog in a metal suit could have just been a one-off gag, but Moore develops the character and his relationships (both professional and romantic) masterfully.

While there is an overarching plot, Moore takes us on a number of detours that only add to the fun. The battle between the superpowered mice and cats and Ex-Verminator's consequent woes are probably my favorite scenes.

I thought the story developed a little too slowly, but once we get out of the opening scenes, things start rolling along nicely.

Gene Ha's artwork is incredibly detailed, and nearly every panel is filled with snarky details and references. His character drawings come across as a bit stiff, but it doesn't detract much from the visuals.

All in all, this is a graphic you'll be rereading numerous times.

This was my first Alan Moore book as an experienced reader of the medium. I found this book to be quite enjoyable and was surprised at the amount of humor Alan Moore brought to the table. The universe was quite rich and diverse, highly detailed, and thoughtfully crafted. The main story arcs and the smaller 'side' arcs were all very interesting.

The art was very well done and quite detailed; it really brought life to this unique world.

Top 10 isn't seen as one of Moore's seminal works, but after reading I can see why he is considered an all time great. I have and will continue to purchase other Moore material off the strength of Top 10!!

Alan Moore has always been one of my favorite authors, but I seem not to like some of his 1990's and on works. However,I am happy to report that top ten is a true classic, and arguably some of his best work.

As the description says, top ten follows the lives of a squad of police officers in Neopolis, a city where basically everyone has superpowers. This leads to a lot of scaled up versions of normal problems, including traffic accidents with flying cars, super drugs, a serial killer, and a super-mice infestation. And while this plot is good, it is the characters and artwork that truly impress.

Gene Ha's artwork is good in general, but the added bonus of this comic is a plethora of backround events and jokes, so that some pages you can stare at for ten minutes before you really take everything in. And it works. My main criticism of Moore for things like Promethea and LoEG is that he focuses too much on these goofs so that the actual plot and characters suffer, but that didn't happen here.

Top Ten is an ensemble piece, with at least a dozen great characters all working together to solve the cases. Alan Moore does astoundlingly good work getting all of these people off the ground and into your hearts. And of course, his dialogue is as good as ever.

Now, the ending is only about 85% as good as it could have been. All the plot is wrapped up effectively, as were most of the characters, but two in particular are set up for a new adventure not covered in this book. Hopefully when the sequel gets converted to an ebook. But this a minor issue.

All in all, save Watchmen no other 12 issues of any comic can compete with this, and I recommend it to everyone.
