Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill are back with an all new League of Extraordinary Gentleman, this time directly to graphic novel format, and why not? Honestly I don’t think I’ve read a LOEG book in any other format. These stories are usually complex enough to mess with my mind if I try absorbing them one issue at a time. For me the collected issues work best, so this is a match made in heaven.
Nemo: Heart of Ice is currently available for pre-order from Top Shelf Comics, and will be hitting stores in February.
The tale is set in 1925, fifteen long years since Janni Dakkar first tried to escape the legacy of her dying science-pirate father, only to accept her destiny as the new Nemo, captain of the legendary Nautilus. Now, tired of her unending spree of plunder and destruction, Janni launches a grand expedition to surpass her father’s greatest failure: the exploration ofAntarctica. Hot on her frozen trail are a trio of genius inventors, hired by an influential publishing tycoon to retrieve the plundered valuables of an African queen. It’s a deadly race to the bottom of the world — an uncharted land of wonder and horror where time is broken and the mountains bring madness. Jules Verne meets H.P. Lovecraft in the unforgettable final showdown, lost in the living, beating and appallingly inhuman HEART OF ICE.
Love the addition of H.P. Lovecraft. I simply can’t wait to get my hands on this book.
