The all-new installment in the breathtaking series by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill! In The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Vol III): Century #1 ("1910"), the familiar cast of Victorian literary characters enters the brave new world of the 20th century! Chapter One is set against a backdrop of London, 1910, twelve years after the failed Martian invasion and nine years since England put a man upon the moon. In the bowels of the British Museum, Carnacki the ghost- finder is plagued by visions of a shadowy occult order who are attempting to create something called a Moonchild, while on London's dockside the most notorious serial murderer of the previous century has returned to carry on his grisly trade.
Working for Mycroft Holmes' British Intelligence alongside a rejuvenated Allan Quatermain, the reformed thief Anthony Raffles and the eternal warrior Orlando, Miss Murray is drawn into a brutal opera acted out upon the waterfront by players that include the furiously angry Pirate Jenny and the charismatic butcher known as Mac the Knife. This one is not to be missed!
This is the first of three deluxe, 80-page, full- color, perfect- bound graphic novellas, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Kevin O'Neill. Each self- contained narrative takes place in three distinct eras, building to an apocalyptic conclusion occurring in our own 21st century. Color. "O'Neill's detailed art matches the intricacy of Moore's design, combining the meticulous line work of period book illustrations and a distinctly modern vitality."
