England in the mid-1950s is not the same as it was. The powers that be have instituted some changes. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen have been disbanded and disavowed, and the country is under the control of an iron-fisted regime. Now, after many years, the still youthful Mina Murray and a rejuvenated Allan Quatermain return in search of some answers answers that can only be found in a book buried deep in the vaults of their old headquarters a book that holds the key to the hidden history of the League throughout the ages: The Black Dossier.
As Allan and Mina delve into the details of their precursors, some dating back centuries, they must elude their dangerous pursuers who are hell-bent on retrieving the lost manuscript...and ending the League once and for all.
I sometimes think that Black Dossier is the most rewarding, the richest, of all the volumes of the League. Much like the chrono-crystal aleph that Allan Quatermain finds himself stranded on in Allan and the Sundered Veil, it allows us to see glimpses of the League s history, intriguing insights into stories perhaps remaining to be told. -- Forbidden Planet International
The comics industry, without hyperbole, is living this situation whenever Moore releases a new comic, and that, simply put, is why it s such a big deal for comic fans. He s our Shakespeare....Ultimately, the Black Dossier lives up to the reputation of previous League stories, and justifies the long, long wait since the previous one. -- James Hunt -Den of Geek
Everything here is a cut-and-paste collage of previously published fiction, and half the fun is spotting the references...What is utterly mind-boggling is not only Uncle Alan s breadth and depth of cultural knowledge, but the ingenuity with which he s reweaved his unpicked threads into a brand new tapestry which holds so well together. -- Page 45
