In Nemo: Roses of Berlin Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neal tell a fun and engaging story that shows how the creators still have a lot to say with these characters after all that we’ve already seen. You can take all the nonsense that Moore has said through the press over the years but you can’t take away his talent because despite him not ever quite reaching the peak of his abilities that he did in the 80’s the guys can still write a mean comic. Part of that comes from this just being a fun romp more or less without some of the heavy baggage that he brings to his other work (NO RAPES!!!) and the other is Kevin O’Neil who get’s to flex his illustration skills something lovely on this issue. He still does sharp lines but the inks are lighter here and it works great to distinguish this book from his past work but what really stands out are several fantastically detailed double page spreads like I’ve never seen from him before and as previously stated there are many. This is connected to The League of Extraordinary Gentleman somehow but you really don’t need any back story to get into it as it’s more then capable of standing on it’s own. You can write off Moore’s opinions these days (as I have) but you can’t deny his talent. Nemo: Roses of Berlin is a strong piece of the duo’s ever growing catalog and while it’s not Miracle Man (what is?) it’s still well worth your attention. You don’t have to like Moore but you can still enjoy him while he’s here. That much is easy.
