Top Ten Season Two reviewed in the Onion AV Club!

Top Ten Season Two got a nice review in the Onion's AV Club:




Paul Di Filippo and Jerry Ordway’s 2005 attempt to reboot of Alan Moore’s Top 10 series fell distinctly flat; it crammed in new characters and plotlines featuring old ones, but never found the humanity in the characters or the sense of wonder in the story. Original series co-artist Zander Cannon has been doing a much more respectable job with the four-issue miniseries Top 10: Season Two (Wildstorm), which wraps in February. From the first issue’s irresistible mystery to the subsequent ones’ respect for Moore’s characters, it’s a more faithful and more compelling Top 10. And hey, Gene Ha is back on art as well, which makes a major difference to the feel of these issues… B+

Not bad!  You can find the rest of the comics capsule reviews for the month here:
