I wasn't an entirely huge fan of the 1969 edition, but I'm actually quite looking forward to this, somehow. I like that Moore is starting to bring back in references from the Black Dossier, given that the police all seem to be sporting insignia akin to those from the OGN.

I think it's also important to bear in mind, in some respects, that the world of LOEG is not the same as ours. They suffered through the fascist Orwellian stuff from 1948 to some point in the 50's, so I imagine that the entire free-love/hippie movement or whatever must have been absolutely huge - which means the aftermath would be incredibly harsh. So it's going to be interesting to see just how bleak the story gets.

I also hope that Moore continues with LOEG, in time. The Almanac of Volume 2 and bits and pieces of the Black Dossier suggested dozens of story opportunities.
