The Superhero Comic Alan Moore Likes – Germany To Invade America In Kieron Gillen's Uber

22c60f6fa547169f15acef8d1f5d1c1f_originalAlan Moore has given Uber, the superhero war comic by Kieron Gillen, Canaan White and Daniel Gete, his blessing.

For the Kickstarter appeal to launch the return of the series published by Avatar, Bleeding Cool's owners, he says,

"Situating the superhuman in its only credible real-life context, UBER gives us an appallingly logical and brilliantly-imagined world where the Third Reich's science lived up to its rhetoric. In a carefully-realized geopolitical landscape, the giant names of the Second World War act out their revised destinies to jaw-dropping and spectacular effect, with Kieron Gillen right at the top of his dazzling form and his artistic collaborators expertly embellishing the vast historical canvas he's prepared for them. Making fifteen-foot-tall invulnerable monsters with reality-warping psychic abilities seem as acceptable and grimly inevitable in its alternate timeline as nuclear weapons came to seem in ours, UBER is simply the most compelling, addictive and ambitious ongoing comic-book series that I have seen in years. Unless you happen to be made of vapour, it will grip you and refuse to let you go."

So there's that. And handily timed as the comic book returns for its new series Uber: Invasion, as Germany invades America.

As ever with Avatar, Kickstarter acts more like a pre-order system for the comic, with rewards matching and exceeding what you would get for retail price and providing collectible items for the higher echelons.
