The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1 - Kevin O'Neill, Alan Moore

I tried reading From Hell and it ended up bothering the hell out of me + felt like a slower-paced version of A Treasury of Victorian Murder Compendiumand I'm not even a big fan of that work, either.   Although I am a HUGE The Watchmen fan, I was a little distressed to pick this up, worrying that this would be as unsatisfying as From Hell.  Boy, was I wrong!

 

Primal, tongue-in-cheek, campy, and bloody as all hell, this feels like optimal fun made especially for well-read fans of the ol' blood bukkake with discerning taste.  Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde takes the cake as my favorite character in the bunch.   Have fun, give this a read.
