Many readers will probably just not bother to read it.
Johnny Heering
Little has changed in 2009 and I just don't get a feeling like I'm reading a story featuring literary characters.

I was looking forward to reading his latest League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series.

At one point during this story, someone asks Mina Harker what it's like to be immortal. She replies that the first 70 years are great, but after that...
There is a tremendous sense of fatigue emanating from our heroes here. It's 2009, Mina Harker has been missing for 40 years, Quartermain's fallen apart, Orlando has been, um, killing time and the whole Moon Child crisis seems to have been forgotten. It's only when Orlando receives a less-the-gentle reminder from the Blazing World that he/she lurches into action again.
If you've read any of the League books then you'll already know what to expect: insane numbers of literary references, vast numbers of familiar faces in the background..it's all here. There's also an extended reference to the Harry Potter books that leads me to suspect Alan Moore's not a fan, but I knew that since "Trotter Minor" popped up in Smax.
The story ends wonderfully, as the Moon Child emerges, ready to "start killing everyone". And no, I won't tell you more.

With Alan Moore's almost total withdrawal from comics, the League is the last opportunity we have of seeing him at work in this medium, and while I look forward to his novel Jerusalem as much as anyone, I am glad we have some comics by him as well.

A strong ending to the Century story.

This volume was going to be great. It would wash away the disappointment from The Black Dossier and the less than spectacular 1910 and 1969. My all time favorite writer would come through in the end and deliver a barn burner. I so wanted to love this one but it soon became clear that this was shaping up to be more like The Black Dossier than Volume 1 (which was BRILLIANT). Still, if there's one thing Alan Moore knows how to do it's write an ending and I held out hope right up until the end before finally resigning myself to the fact that 2009 was the weakest of the three Century books. None of which were that spectacular

It's 2009, 40 years since Mina parted ways with Allan and Orlando. Orlando is fully woman when she receives a message from Prospero at the Blazing World warning that the antichrist child (from previous chapters) is nearly ready to act and the end of the world is nigh. In a panic she decides it's time to put the trio back together again to prevent Armageddon. Unfortunately the past 40 years have not been well to Mina and Allen and they may be in no condition to fight the demonic spawn.

One issue I had with 1969 was how Mina and Allen basically bore no resemblance anymore to their famous characters. Little has changed in 2009 and I just don't get a feeling like I'm reading a story featuring literary characters. I also get no vibe that Orlando is actually 3000 years old other than the frequent mentions that she/he is 3000 years old. The finale was well below what I normally expect from Alan Moore. It pains me to write this review because I've received so much enjoyment for well over two decades from Moore's writing but I'd be lying as a reviewer if I said this was anything more than a huge disappointment.

Format: Paperback
Here we have the third and final chapter of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century. It takes place 99 years after Chapter 1 and 40 years after Chapter 2. Do NOT read this graphic novel without reading the first two chapters; it is somewhat confusing even if you HAVE read them. I don't want to divulge too much of the plot, but it isn't giving too much away to say that Orlando attempts to find Mina Murray and Allan Quatermain to battle the antichrist. Characters from Harry Potter and other works show up here, but they are unnamed due to copyright reasons. This is a good comic book, albeit less accessible than the volumes that took place in the 19th Century. The book ends with the third chapter of "Minions of the Moon", which is a text story that has been serialized in the previous chapters of Century. It is written in the style of "New Wave" Science Fiction, which makes it VERY inaccessible and hard to follow. Many readers will probably just not bother to read it.

After being terribly disappointed with 1969, I only bought 2009 to complete my collection. I wish I hadn't read it. I can't stress hardly enough how much I hated this book (If I really tried to we'd end up with Sartor Resartus Part Two)

In this tiny volume, Alan Moore manages to fit horrible characterization, terribly clichéd dialogue and a highly predictable plot (except for the deus ex machina ending which was surprisingly bad).

I first started reading the League because it had the great writing of the genius who wrote The Watchmen and was starred by some of my favourite book characters. The first two volumes I proudly display on my shelf next to the books that inspired it: Dracula, King Solomon's Mines and so on, because I feel they are just an extension of the books I read as a little girl and love so much.

The only place I could "proudly display" 2009 is in my trash can. Honestly, I was deeply saddened by the quality of this book. Seeing the man who inspired me to become a comic book artist and writer (The Watchmen stands as my favourite graphic novel and one of my favourite books) commit these crimes against some of my favourite characters was a hard hit.

I don't care how much symbolism this has, or could have. I don't care how many pop culture references there are. This book has a terrible plot and nothing can hide that.

To add insult to injury, the art is TERRIBLE. It used to be great but now the figures are plain deformed, assymetrical and with ever-changing faces.

Did they put this whole thing together in a weekend? Were they drunk? Did they just not care? All of the above?
