Cover, which isn't really as interesting as the previous ones, though that's just my opinion.

Hopefully Moore won't resort to using women getting molested again as a plot device, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. See, the thing is that I don't not like the LoEG series, and I get the reason for some of the problematic content (the first volume satirises Victorian racism and sexism, for example), but just using the same stuff over and over for shock value is... cheap.

What I personally find most aggravating about Moore isn't actually him, somehow, but more the reactions that people have to him upon hearing some of his opinions.

There's a delicious irony to the people openly declaring Moore an idiot and a miserable old man because he doesn't support the Before Watchmen stuff and that he isn't that good, and then seeing them get really, really pissed off at him for daring to say stuff about them and their attitude to comics - as though he's not a human being and isn't entitled to an opinion because of his position in the industry.

He is getting a little hit and miss at the moment, though. I mean, Neonomicon was all over the place; I could see why Brian K Vaughan really, really enjoyed it - I thought some bits of it were genius - but it was really uneven. LOEG 1969 was like that, too; I really enjoyed everything that didn't deal with the ongoing Moonchild plot. I could've read six issues plus of Mina and Co in that era.
