"The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
EDIT -is a comic book series co-created by writer Alan Moore and artist Kevin O'Neill which began in 1999. The series spans four volumes, an original graphic novel, and a spin-off trilogy of graphic novella. Volume I and Volume II (originally released as two six-issue limited series) and the graphic novel Black Dossier were published by the America's Best Comics imprint of DC Comics. After leaving the America's Best imprint, the series moved to Top Shelf and Knockabout Comics, which published Volume III: Century (originally released as three graphic novella), the Nemo Trilogy (a spin-off of three graphic novella centered on the character of Nemo), and Volume IV: The Tempest (originally released as a six-issue limited series). According to Moore, the concept behind the series was initially a "Justice League of Victorian England" but he quickly developed it as an opportunity to merge elements from many works of fiction into one world."
Seen the film (because I once considered teaching a university module on steampunk) but never read the graphic novels. I've got/read From Hell (because of an interest in psychogeography and crime) and I had the Moore/Campbell commentary on it for Christmas. I've also got Watchmen in digital format. At the moment I'm rereading Sandman. I treated myself to the Absolute Editions (on the basis of "sod it - you can't take your money with you so might as well spend the kids' inheritance") but I'm reading it in digital form because I can't bring myself to unwrap the hard copies.🙄The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol IV: The Tempest - Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill
Why? And are we? My wiring must have short circuited because I don't have the least interest in plot - twisted or otherwise. Psychologically driven towards desiring plot/resolution I can understand but not hard-wiring.why we are hardwired to appreciate them.
