Take a whirlwind journey through time, as the League of the 1950s steal a mysterious volume detailing the histories of every incarnation of the group - from the dawn of time to their own team!
Alan Moore is one of the most respected and admired writers in comics today. His credits include Watchmen, V For Vendetta, The Ballad of Halo Jones, and Swamp Thing. His own line of ABC Comics, including Tom Strong, Top Ten, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen has been a massive success. Kevin O'Neill's work includes A.B.C. Warriors, Batman, Metalzoic and, more recently, Marshal Law, also available from Titan Books.From Publishers Weekly:
Starred Review. After several delays, the latest installment of Moore's pastiche of public domain literary figures is finally here and it's worth the wait. In 1958, two mysterious figures steal the Black Dossier, a compendium of information and articles relating to the league's most renowned incarnation, the group headed by the intrepid Mina Murray. The theft launches a tense chase as the thieves fight to stay one step ahead of thuggish government agents while reading the contents of the dossier, pieces that shed light on centuries-worth of secret and bizarre intrigues. Moore and O'Neill are in top form, crafting a virtually flawless fusion of prose and visuals that's an overwhelmingly dense and exhaustive nod to pre-existing works in media ranging from literature, legends, television and film, teasing the reader in the know with appearances by Orwellian totalitarianism, Lovecraftian abominations, Jeeves and Wooster, Bulldog Drummond, Ian Fleming's famed double-o operative, lusty Fanny Hill and a host of others, capped with a section requiring 3-D glasses (included). Too loaded with content to be fully absorbed in one reading, this is a challenging, adult volume that's a delight for fans of pop culture and lovers of heroic adventure. (Nov.)
