Format: Paperback
This is the second volume of Alan Moore's anthology from America's Best Comics.

Like in the first volume, the Jack B. Quick stories are the best, but there are only two of them.

The Greyshirt stories continue their tradition of decent noir stories with a twist at the end (though singing story is too goofy for the character). Veitch continues with inventive panel layouts, with the story seen completely through the windshield of a cab being the stand out.

First American and Splash Brannigan continue riffing on pop culture and comic books, they they both try too hard and are already outdated. They seem to tread on each other's territory and are redundant.

The Cobweb stories are full of understated innuendo that thinks it's clever. At least Gebbie doesn't do all the artwork, which makes the stories better than in the first volume.

There's less Jack B. Quick than in the first volume, but the everything else is a little bit better than before (if not exactly evolutionary). If you liked the first volume, you will like this one.

I've been working my way through the work of Alan Moore since I re-started buying comics (sorry, graphic novels/sequential art) after many years away. Tomorrow Stories isn't what I'd rank as the best of A.M., but it's fun stuff, if a bit mixed. (If you haven't read Moore's Tom Strong series, I'd recommend that before Tomorrow Stories.) Each issue of T.S. includes usually four stories, each with a recurring character. I ALWAYS like the Jack B. Quick stories. They combine brilliant intellectual playfulness with easy humor. I found I liked the other characters and stories to varying degrees (Cobweb, U.S. American, Greyshirt). Still, why anyone would rate this volume with a single star is beyond me.

Format: Paperback
For years the comic industry had been obsessed with never-ending soap operas that run for years without any real conclusion. So it's easy for an anthology of short stories, even ones by Alan Moore to be overlooked.

That would be a terrible mistake.

Tomorrow Stories was a self-conscious throwback to golden age comics where you got several stories from different genres in one package. You'd get a story with gentleman crime-fighter the Greyshirt, sexy femme fatale the Cobweb, the comical First American and either boy genius Jack B Quick or animated ink stain Splash Brannigan. But since these are Alan Moore stories nothing is quite what it seems. While First American, Jack and Splash are pretty much straight up humor other stories were experiments in graphic storytelling. One Greyshirt story is a song dance number with all his cast, another is set entirely in a taxi and all the action occurs through the cab's windshield.

Each story is about 8 pages but they never feel rushed or too short. Each one is a gem.

Frankly if you like good comics and can look past the familiar characters we all know Tomorrow Stories is a great buy.

Rarely do you see a satire on the business from folks in the business that works. This one doesn't. Don't bother.
