Where To Find It
Call number: Adult Graphic Novel / LXG
If you saw the movie do yourself a favor and try and sort out some way to give yourself a brain enema and forget it. Done that? Good. Now read on....... The League are literary heroes banded together to save the Empire. Which should be enough of a reason to read them. What is better is that everything (and I mean everything) in the books is referenced back to other classics of literature. So as well as Allen Quartermain and Nemo we meet Moreau, the Artful Dodger, Mycroft Holmes and more characters – each time you read it you'll recognize more and more cultural references. Allen Moore – famous for Watchmen, his beard and refusing to take part in any of the multiple movies made of his work (V for Vendetta, From Hell, the aforementioned) created an amazing pastiche of both the real and literary history. Read it.
