The Book 2 wiki last edited by Billy Batson on 04/25/13 10:59AM View full history

Alan Moore and Gene Ha's multi-Eisner Award-winning homage to police dramas and old science-fiction tales concludes its groundbreaking run in TOP TEN BOOK TWO. The officers of Precinct 10, Neopolis's finest, are keeping the peace in a world where every last citizen has super-powers. The police force encounter all manner of the super powered and the supernatural on a routine basis. Prepare for the shocking conclusion of this truly unique storyline!

Back Blurb

The massive, multilayered city of Neopolis, built shortly after World War II, was designed as a home for the expanding population of science-heroes, heroines and villains that had ballooned into existence in the previous decade. Bringing these powered beings together solved some problems but created others, especially after the inevitable partnership led to a surge in their numbers in the 1960s. By the 1980s, Neopolis had turned into a pressure cooker - under-financed and overpopulated - that normal policing methods could never hope to contain.

In 1985 the city accepted jurisdiction by a police force covering many alternated Earths, headquartered on the world known as "Grand Central." Our own outpost of this network, Precinct Ten (known affectionately as Top 10), recruits its members from Neopolis and environs, working much like Earth's other police precincts, with one major exception: like the citizens of the city, the officers of Top 10 have the abilities needed to deal with Neopolis's exotic denizens.

Join a colorful collection of Top 10 officers as they investigate a variety of events, from traffic accidents to treachery, and face their greatest challenge: an attack inside the heart of precinct headquarters! Solving these crimes will lead to other worlds and deep into the hidden corruptions of Neopolis, in a finale you won't soon forget.

He Kept it Up! 0

I wasn't sure if Moore could keep up with the great universe he'd created in the first series.  After all, parody often falls prey to using all its "jokes" in the first run and then becoming a horrible shell of itself (see the Scary Movie series).  This one continues to look at different topics on our life through the lens of a super hero world.  The only thing that seems to be a bit discontinuous is the homosexuality thing being such a big deal.  I can see that being more of a big deal in 80s w...

End of Season 1 of Top 10 0

Book 1 of Top 10 is longer, but I think book 2 has more fun in it because the universe has to be established in the first trade.   The Mice in Top 10.  I think I see a John Constantine Mouse.It could be the John Constantine/DCU fan in me, but the best part of the series is the Rules of Engagement issue.  This issue parodies Tie-Ins and Cross-Overs.  The Battle between Cosmouse and Galactapuss makes you wonder, wonder "How Alan Moore is not everyone's favorite writer?" Like in the firs...
