If you are a fan of the league of extraordinary Gentleman COMIC you will get a good kick out of this.
Some great references (tip of the hat if you will) to H.P. Lovecraft's works.
I hope to meet the man one day.
The Nemo trilogy is fantastic fun but most important is to note that this is a companion piece to LOEG: Century .. which also needs the Black Dossier to fully enjoy and understand the story. Century and Nemo are two sides of the same coin and only after reading them both will the larger picture of the themes present really start to take shape.
The League of Extraordinary Gentleman as a whole might be the greatest batch of comics ever produced, what starts rather simply and straight forward becomes more and more subversive, complex, and impressive with each additional publication.
I write this as it's approaching the final issues of the entire series: to anyone interested make sure you read each and every bit of each and every story. A common complaint amongst more casual readers is that they find parts too confusing or dull in certain volumes, or too simple and weak in others, and hop off the train. To those who stick through it all and get the complete picture, you will be rewarded with one of the greatest comic stories of all time.
It's also unfair to review any LOEG without mention Kevin O'Neil's art. It may appear simple to those reading heavily rendered art in most other comics, but O'Neill has a tone, a language, and he speaks comics better than most illustrators could ever hope. He makes it look easy. And for all Moore's notoriety and success and power over the written word, what I love most about LOEG is O'Neills art. So when I review a LOEG title, it's Moore that comes under more scrutiny.
