Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sirs and Madams: We are delighted to bring you, due to popular demand of the general comics-reading populace, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen hardcover, collecting all six chapters of the exciting Victorian adventure periodical in one exceptional volume. This handsome tome is masterfully written in its entirety by Mr. Alan Moore, author of such classic works as Watchmen, From Hell, and the award-winning America's Best Comics line of pictorial novels, and superbly illustrated by Mr. Kevin O'Neill, artist of Marshall Law and Lobo.

Thrill once again to the derring-do of our stalwart chums — Allan Quatermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll, Edward Hyde, and Hawley Griffin, the indisputable Invisible Man — as they band together to face sinister threats to Britain. This full-length novel recounts the first-ever mission of The League, as each member is recruited, to the finale in which their dashing and heroic demeanor saves the day as they defeat a set of most dastardly (if we do say so ourselves) villains.

This irresistible volume also will contain the complete text feature "Allan and the Sundered Veil" with accompanying illustrations by Mr. O'Neill, as well as all the covers for the original series. As a special bonus, we are pleased to announce the addition of a sketchbook section giving a rare glimpse into Mr. O'Neill's unique artistic process.

Review:

"This delightful work features a grand collection of signature 19th-century fictional adventurers....Moore and O'Neill have created a Victorian era Fantastic Four, a beautifully illustrated reprise of 19th-century literary derring-do packed with period detail, great humor and rousing adventure." Publishers Weekly
