Read The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1 (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, #1) Online Free -
London, 1898. The Victorian Era draws to a close and the twentieth century approaches. It is a time of great change and an age of stagnation, a period of chaste order and ignoble chaos. It is an era in need of champions.
In this amazingly imaginative tale, literary figures from throughout time and various bodies of work are brought together to face any and all threats to Britain. Allan Quatermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde and Hawley Griffin ( the Invisible Man) form a remarkable legion of intellectual aptitude and physical prowess: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

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 d...

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,...

This was much better than I thought it would be. Well done Alan Moore!
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen takes place during the Victorian Era in London and it is a steampunk version of the British Empire. A mysterious head of British Intelligence (Mr. M) wants to put together a League to comba...

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...

Za pocetak dosta bolje od filma. Ako vas je film razocarao strip ce vam vratiti poverenje u ove likove i ovu pricu.
Sama prica je dosta jednostavna mada se fino uklapa u format steampunk-a i lici na nesto sto bi mozda i Zil Vern napisao ali glavna prednost su sami heroji koji vode ovu pricu. Mada...

Olvidémonos todos de la película, por favor. Y tengamos en cuenta una cosa: Este es un cómic para amantes de los libros con mente abierta.
Esta es una de las pocas grandes obras de Alan Moore que me quedaban por leer, y llevaba años con ganas, al principio tengo que decir que me decepcionó un poco...

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 <3

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-aw...

Great concept, horrible execution. The art is atrociously awful, and sexism and racism abound (perhaps legitimate given the time period, but is it necessary to revel in them with such glee?). As a diehard Sherlockian, I was a bit confused about the timing--this story takes place in 1898, and Sher...

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 t...
