The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1

By Alan Moore

Rating: 4 stars

What would happen if you took some of the most famous Victorian heroes, combined them into a super-team and had them fight evil in the name of the Empire? You’d get the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Forget the average-to-poor film, this is a fantastic graphic novel. Alan Moore’s writing is assured all the way through and O’Neill’s art is stylistically perfect for the setting. The Steampunk-style Victorian era in which it is set, with its cross-channel bridge, its towering statues and monuments speak of a Britain that is self-assured and looking eagerly to the future, with its best and brightest to protect it. A brilliant book.
