The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Publisher: DC Comics

Review

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is comics scriptwriting supremo Alan Moore's incredible, reinvention of classic heroes and villains.

What if some of the best loved literary characters in history were to band together to fight crime? What if Captain Nemo, Allan Quatermain, Dr Henry Jekyll (together with his brutish alter ego Edward Hyde) and the Invisible Man were brought together by a Miss Mina Harker (who once had a dalliance with a certain Count from Transylvania), to fight the menace of Fu Manchu?

While this graphic novel is easily accesible, the more mature content means this should not be read by younger teens.
