At the end of TheNineties, Creator/AlanMoore founded Creator/AmericasBestComics, an attempt to put a new twist on {{superhero}} comics from well before UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks. ''Tomorrow Stories'', especially so. Where ''ComicBook/TomStrong'' started with mostly issue-length adventures, and ''{{Promethea}}'' had a mystical adventure arc that eventually [[GoingCosmic went cosmic]], ''Tomorrow Stories'' was an AnthologyComic that brought back the 6-10 page stories common in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks. It was a superhero AnthologyComic long after the fashion had passed.
