  DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore - PopMatters Comic Book Review
DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore should put to rest the notion that Moore harbors any particular animosity towards the spandex set.

DC Universe: TheStories of Alan Moore doesn't contain Moore's best work, or the stories for which he'll be best remembered, but they nonetheless provide a view of the important developmental steps of a rising star, as well as a side of the author that should not be ignored.
