Read full description of the books The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Omnibus:Combining volumes 1 and 2 of LOEG makes for a thick book, and with the narrative density of Moore's writing and the sharply rendered details of Kevin O'Neill, it reads like the best of novels. It includes, of course, all the extras from the comics and original TPB collections, from the substantial and brilliantly written prose stories and accompanying illustrations, to the board game designed by O'Neill for the second volume. In the more than 15 years since the first series was published, I've read volumes 1 and 2 several times; it's like the Simpsons in it's prime, in that the narrative is so tightly coiled, so heavy with literary allusion and fictional-historical detail, as well as crazy twists and graphically violent action, that it can be revisited as often as you like and still be entertaining. My only complaint is that 'The Black Dossier' should have been included, too, but that might be a problem relating to publishing rights, as Top Shelf published the latest edition instead of DC.
*[Don't think the crappy movie of the same name has anything to do with the comic; if it had, it would have been an amazing film, instead of a cheesy summer suckfest.]
Read information about the authorAlan Moore is an English writer most famous for his influential work in comics, including the acclaimed graphic novels Watchmen, V for Vendetta and From Hell. He has also written a novel, Voice of the Fire, and performs "workings" (one-off performance art/spoken word pieces) with The Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels, some of which have been released on CD.
As a comics writer, Moore is notable for being one of the first writers to apply literary and formalist sensibilities to the mainstream of the medium. As well as including challenging subject matter and adult themes, he brings a wide range of influences to his work, from the literary–authors such as William S. Burroughs, Thomas Pynchon, Robert Anton Wilson and Iain Sinclair; New Wave science fiction writers such as Michael Moorcock; horror writers such as Clive Barker; to the cinematic–filmmakers such as Nicolas Roeg. Influences within comics include Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kirby and Bryan Talbot.
