"Acclaimed comics author Moore (Watchmen) has combined his love of 19th-century adventure literature with an imaginative mastery of its 20th-century corollary, the superhero comic book."—Publishers Weekly

About the Author
Alan Moore is perhaps the most acclaimed writer in the graphic story medium, having garnered countless awards for works such as WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA, SWAMP THING and MIRACLEMAN. He is also the mastermind behind the America's Best Comics line, through which he has created (along with many talented illustrators) THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, PROMETHEA, TOM STRONG, TOMORROW STORIES and TOP TEN. As one of the medium's most important innovators since the early 1980s, Moore has influenced an entire generation of comics creators, and his work continues to inspire an ever-growing audience.

This excellent hardcover presents the first two stories in the saga of the League. With all the accompanying text, and alternate covers.
It's great fun to choose a page at random and try to figure out all the references. Who is that other human on Mars, and who is Dr. Moreau talking about when he speaks about his nephew? Why does one of Nemo's crew members have a black arrow on his back? I could go on and on.
Trouble is, and this not a fault of the book, none of the above questions are answered anywhere in these pages. You gotta do the research.
Also, I have talked to people who saw the movie, and even some who liked it. The story here bears little resemblance to the film. Personally, I see that as a good thing.
