    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

    While I liked this, it did take me at least three chapters to get into it, or care about the characters We have a group of rather strange characters, whom most will recognize from some of the classic horror and sci fi tales, working for a man they don t know really know anything about, and of course, the true boss, hiding in the shadows The stories are interesting, and kept my attention, but I wasn t truly into it until the characters started forming bonds

    Wow I should ve known that Alan Moore, the man behind V for Vendetta and Watchmen, would bring his A game for The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which I can only describe as the best graphic novel I ve read in a long time Fun and full of action, the story twisted in a way that I wasn t expecting but was still easy to follow Nice to have in there characters we re already familiar with Holmes, Jekyll Hyde etc THIS is how a graphic novel is done Wow I should ve known tha

    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 lotspace and time

    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, however, does not Ce In a w

    Well, gentlemen, at least we now know why we re here British Intelligence has assembled us to thwart a plot against the EmpireMs Wilhelmina Murray, a.k.a Mina Harker Now here was an inspired and rousing but yet problematic sci fi adventure story, which is chiefly known or remembered other than inspiring Sean Connery s final cinematic outing before retirement I haven t seen said film version for uniting several fictional British characters for a group effort at the close of theWell, gentlemen, at

    I found this utterly entertaining What i loved most are the dialogues The way the characters talk to each other is just beautiful.Can t wait to continue with the series

    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 audi Great concept, terrible
