    It s easy to see The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol.1 as a fluffy action confection It doesn t smack you in the head with a puddle of blood and a happy face pin like Watchmen Nor does it open with a girl about to be raped in a post apocalyptic Neo Fascist London like V for Vendetta It doesn t open with extreme gravitas Instead, we get a fun variation of the classic spy mission opener Mina Murray nee Harker, nee Murray is ordered on a

    Great good fun Alan Moore and Kevin O Neill collaborate on a TASTY tale where characters from literature and pulp fiction inhabit an alternate Victorian England and band together to save the empire and have a rousing fine rime of it.Readers will enjoy Moore s penchant for adding detail to his DELICIOUS mix of HAVEATYOU with inclusions of characters from Dracula, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, The Allan Quartermain Mythos and the Invisib

    Bah This was another disappointing read for me I had high hopes for this series This book brings together a problem solving team composed of characters from Victorian lit Mina Murray whose brief marriage to Jonathan Harker has ended badly , the Invisible Man, Captain Nemo, Allan Quatermain, and Henry Jekyll Edward Hyde While Sherlock Holmes is not present in the flesh, he is certainly on everyone s minds How could such a premise go wrong Maybe Moore just needs a l

    In a word Underwhelming.In a sentence Boring as hell, needlessly bleak, oversexed to the point of annoyance The elephant in the room is, of course, the movie adaptation While I m not blind to the flaws of the film namely the varied FX quality the sprawling plot that bounces from one stage to another , I m not ashamed to say I prefer the screen version Indeed, I ll go a step further admit to a great cinematic crime I like the movie. It makes me smile This book, howe

    1.5 to 2.0 stars I was really disappointed with this graphic novel after going into it was high expectations Not quite bad enough to rate 1 star as there are some clever scenes and some of the dialogue is engaging On the whole though, this is an AMAZING CONCEPT that deserved better treatment than it received here.

    Great concept, terrible execution Moore manages to reduce about a dozen Victorian adventure classics to fit into his apparently pea sized brain, and out comes this This book offended both my conservative and my liberal impulses, with banal pornographic sequences, flat, amoral heroes and offensive Asian stereotypes Moore has less sympathy for Chinese people than Tolkien has for orcs This book certainly isn t suitable for children, and it s too childish for me So I don t know who the audience is.

    Alan Moore has had terrible luck with the film industry The only adapatation of his work that he had the presence of mind to disavow before its release was the surprisingly good V for Vendetta The others of his works produced for the screen were the tepidly received From Hell and the god awful League of Extraordinary Gentleman adaptation, LXG The film was stillborn, creatively, lacking the tongue in cheek humor and moral ambiguity that made the books so enjoyable, and was very obviously the work of a gr

    Not to be confused with the bizarre but hilarious British television show about a dysfunctional rural town, The League of Gentlemen.This graphic novel is daring, imaginative, artistic and engaging, and my favourite part of it would hands down be its characters The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is unforgettable and practically alive as a work of fiction.
