that is correct

Personally i'd like to see this list become a little more opinionated
(in a good way)as it's a little 'stiff'.
For the record I agree with whoever it was that described League as
a 'romp'. I don't think that makes it a minor work however. I don't
equate 'fun' with 'trivial'. Nor do I think that Moore's work is
only 'serious' when it reflects my own personal sensibilities or
asthetics (such as your statement that you are interested in Moore
writing superheros only when he treats them 'seriously'ala Miracleman.
Does this mean that you would rather he just rehashed Miracleman over
and over again? tha sounds a little boring to me) So no, I didn't take
it personally, I just found it a little pompous.
League is well down on my list of favourite Alan Moore comics
personally, but then so is From Hell. When I first read From Hell I
thought it was incredible but repeated readings didn't stand up to the
first impression. It seems very cold and dry in many places and lacks
a lot of the humanity I expect in an Alan Moore work. Of course, it
could be argued that the subject matter demands that but i don't
agree. Most of Moore's later work is transcendant. From Hell seems to
me to be the last of his 'bleak' works.
