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

Review:

"Against an atmosphere that is both exciting and repressive, Moore and O'Neill have superimposed a drama that is inventive and suspenseful. The script is full of wit and literary references....Highly recommended." Library Journal

Synopsis:

As the British Empire lies in jeopardy, a top-secret initiative unites several of the most notable characters of the age, including Allan Quartermain, Captain Nemo, and Dr. Henry Jekyll.

Synopsis:

In this amazingly imaginative tale, literary figures from throughout time and various bodies of work are brought together to face any and all threats to Britain. Allan Quartermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde, and Hawley Griffin, the Invisible Man, form a remarkable legion of intellectual aptitude and physical prowess. Presented in this trade paperback is the League's first adventure together, from their initial recruitment to their heroic victory. Also included in this volume is the illustrator's masterful sketchbook, which gives unique behind-the-scenes insight to the artistic process.

Synopsis:

Finally in paperback! Take a group of extraordinary literary figures like Allan Quartermain, Captain Nemo, Dr. Jekyll, the Invisible Man and Mina Harker and put them together to save England from its enemies.
