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!
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.
