From Booklist

A decade ago, Moore was the most critically acclaimed writer in comics and among the most prolific. In recent years, however, his output has largely been limited to occasional installments of his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series, set in an alternate-reality Britain, where classic adventure fiction characters protect the empire. In this one, taking place 15 years after the events of Century: 1910 (2009), Janni Dakkar, the daughter of Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo (also the Pirate Jenny of the Threepenny Opera), embarks on an Antarctic expedition, pursued by American inventors-heroes Frank Reade Jr. and Jack Swyfte (a homonymic namesake to a character who’s not in the public domain), who are employed by a Hearstian newspaper tycoon named Kane. But neither team is prepared for the Lovecraftian horror that awaits them at the South Pole. O’Neill’s detailed, angular art brings the literary characters to vivid life and expertly captures the period atmosphere. Moore’s playfully intelligent take on the boys’-adventure genre serves as a reminder of just how much comics fans lost when he all but abandoned the medium. --Gordon Flagg

By David Swan VINE VOICE on April 1, 2015
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I’ve read and reviewed all the Century volumes and all the Nemo (Janni) volumes and this is the first time I did my homework PRIOR to reading the story. Using clues from the product description I read The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Face in the Abyss by A. Merritt and even Eight Hundred Leagues on the Amazon by Jules Verne just on the chance it might get a mention. Turns out what I should have done was watched ‘Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine’ and read an extremely obscure comic from 1902 called Hugo Hercules.

I have not given any of the Century or Nemo volumes rave reviews and that’s not going to change with this latest volume. River of Ghosts is very similar in plot to The Roses of Berlin, including hunting down the previously decapitated Princess Ayesha, except this story is not as good. I would love to say that the writer of Watchmen, Swamp Thing and Miracleman had re-found his mojo and produced a new masterpiece but there is nothing here that comes close to Alan Moore at his best. Like the other two stories in the Nemo trilogy the plot appears to be incidental and the story seems to exist to cram in references to literary and movie characters. Probably the most interesting character in the book was the enormous and seemingly indestructible bodyguard of Janni, Hugo Hercules. He’s a bit of an exaggeration of the original comic character but it was neat that Alan Moore resurrected what some consider the first super powered comic character. I had never heard of the character before reading this story.

If you loved Heart of Ice and The Roses of Berlin you’ll probably love River of Ghosts but for me it was simply a pale reflection of Moore’s greater works.

I am a big fan of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's earlier work. The Nemo stories (Heart of Ice, Roses of Berlin, River of Ghosts) are a spinoff of their highly successful League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series. It supposes that the original Captain Nemo left his mantle to his daughter Janni (who appears peripherally in LOEG III Centuries).

This volume wraps up the Nemo saga with her going on one last adventure despite being quite old and frail - she remains the world's most dangerous grandmother. The plot basically ties up the loose ends from the earlier works and complete Janni's rivalry with the Immortal Ayesha. I am sad to say that the art work is OK and the story is sort of OK as well. The plot twists and reveals unfortunately having been anticipated by many other works. It is NOT a spoiler that there could be ex-Nazis (or their LOEG counterparts) hiding in South America. The only clever revelation is the re-introduction of one of the first super human heroes from popular literature.

If you are completist then you'll probably want to get this. If you are hoping for something like LOEG then you might be a bit disappointed. There are clever bits and moments but nothing that is organized as a story.

Frankly if you recall the LOEG Black Dossier, many of the adventures outlined in the Dossier would make a better story.

[It's easy to criticize Alan Moore. He's crafted so many of the 'essential' works of what was once considered a trash medium, anything less is taken as an insult, by some. How many times can he surpass himself, or even match the stories that made him an icon. Watchmen, From Hell, Lost Girls, A Small Killing, LOEG, Top Ten, Promethea -- he's created works that will be remembered, and read, fifty years from now (even if they're not printed on paper). But he's also created tales that are too experimental for most, and even some that are a bit light, intellectually, for fans. Apparently some readers will find every effort that is inferior to Watchmen unforgivable; but judged fairly, the LOEG books of the last decade are excellent, entertaining reads, with a complexity that few authors can handle. Readers don't have to recognize every cultural reference, and it's ridiculous to think Moore expected that of his audience. The tapestry that once incorporated the narrative threads of Victorian England now approaches Bayeux-like dimensions, including multiple time periods and media. For those willing to engage with the work, it can be fascinating and even instructive, sending people on a hunt across Wikipedia and Amazon. That doesn't happen much in comics; it's an isolated, self-referential art-form. Too many fans read nothing but comics, so an introduction to something outside the comic-book containment field is always positive. But if not, so what? Moore is still writing stories that stand on their own (except the Black Dossier, I suppose). And I'll take Moore's work over the repetitious superhero drek Marvel and DC churn out.]

Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill continue to build their literary comics-wonderland, a meta-narrative that incorporates classic fiction both great and obscure.

I'm writing this as a review for the complete Nemo trilogy, and perhaps beyond that as a companion piece meant to be read alongside LoEG Century.

Individually, each of the three Nemo volumes might seem somewhat sparse. Indeed, upon first reading I was left considerably underwhelmed: Was this really all such a masterful storyteller as Moore had left to offer us? But with the release of the third and final volume in the Nemo trilogy, I went back and re-read all of the League, then all of Nemo yet again. On the surface, each volume of Nemo appears to be little more than a quick adventure yarn- where League spends pages on dialogues and character relationships, the bulk of Nemo is exactly what you'd expect out of a story for a famed adventure pirate: robberies, gunfights, treks to foreign lands, swordfights, and more. Read in quick succession however themes begin to etch themselves out, characters become clear through action and the briefest of comments, and if you're lucky you begin to realize what a masterwork you're holding in your hands. Despite all the fast past action and crammed literary references, at it's core this book is an exercise in minimalism done by one of the greatest comic writers of all time.

Century showed us a story through the eyes of immortals; a view of the world around us when we're standing perfectly still, incredibly vain and often oblivious to our surroundings. The times may have changed but the characters are still fighting the same demons- both literal and figurative, for a hundred years.

Nemo shows us a story through the eyes of something much more real: A rich and powerful science pirate that commands her own squid sub. Ok, maybe not the best way to put it.. how about "through the eyes of a mortal soul.
