Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Albion (Alan & Leah Moore, John Reppion, Shane Oakley & George Freeman) - A lovely tribute to the forgotten British IPC and AP comics characters, some of whom I'm old enough to remember. (I certainly remember and recognised Captain Hurricane (who's actually the scariest character), Grimly Feendish, Robot Archie, and various others).

Storywise, it could have done with better editing - bits are too rushed and other bits are too empty - but overall it was good fun, with a nice meta plot, and endless references and easter eggs. Best of all, the trade paperback also included some of the original 60s and 70s strips, which is cool.

This is something that the British film or TV industry really ought to do on screen (perhaps Moore would be less hostile to that)...
