This prequel to Top 10 takes us back to 1949 and the founding of Neopolis, a haven for the science heroes and heroines who fought the Axis and the Nazis during World War II and then returned to a peace-time America that didn't quite know what to do with them. Part energetically-plotted nostalgic romp through comic traditions, part sweet coming-of-age story of a gay youth, 100% fun. Gene Ha, billed as "finishing artist" in the original Top 10 books, here gets straight Artist credit and the illustrations here are more painterly, as befits its 1940's setting.
Review: Top 10: The Forty-Niners (Top 10 0)User Review - Goodreads
Even the prequel is good! The retro strong-jawline madness of old school comics is here alongside Moore's always hyperaware weirdness, and it mixes so well. All about it. Nazis and vampires are second to a gay love story and a new town of superheroes? Fuck yeahs all around. Pass 'em!
