Présentation de l'éditeur

At last, Volumes 1 and 2 of Alan Moore's LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN are collected in a single, hardcover edition!

As the twentieth century approaches, there is a need for a new kind of champion - adventurers not bound by the chaste order that characterizes the stagnant Victorian Era. The enigmatic Campion Bond of British Intelligence has begun a recruiting mission, collecting a menagerie of individuals who can be of value to his superiors due to...activities that have forced them beyond the pale.

But as Allan Quatermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde, and Hawley Griffin, the Invisible Man discover, British Intelligence has plans for them that go far beyond mere spying. And if they survive their first test against the devil doctor of Limehouse, they'll have to battle an even stranger menace from the stars!

Oubliez le film pataud tiré de cet univers, et revenez à la source avec cette intégrale reprenant les deux premières aventures de la Ligue des Gentlemen Extraordinaire. Alan Moore et Kevin O'Neil se régalent avec ce jeu de piste érudit dans les méandres de la culture populaire de la Belle Epoque. Mais au-delà de la virtuosité dans le maniement des références, nous sommes surtout en présence d'un fabuleux récit d'aventures rythmé et fabuleusement écrit.

HASH(0x95ea1da4) étoiles sur 5 League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen OMNIBUS EDITION 29 décembre 2011
Par Bruno M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book includes Vol. 1 and 2 of The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill. Please note that this edition does NOT include The Black Dossier.

My review is going to be specifically about the Omnibus edition: this is an oversized hardcover with glue binding and heavyweight paper stock. The glue binding is definitely a turn off, but at least it is a very solid binding. And a real possitive feature is the paper stock, wich is heavyweight indeed (unlike most DC Omnibuses wich usually display shamelessly lightweight paper).

This edition includes the complementary prose pieces "Allan and The Sundered Veil" (wich was featured in Vol. 1) and "The New Traveller's Almanac" (from Vol. 2), both written by Moore with illustrations by O'Neil. Unfortunatelly, some of the illustrations from Allan and The Sundered Veil are MISSING. I checked this with the original comic-books and this is a real shame. (However, illustrations from The New Traveller's Almanac are all featured). Also missing are the XIX Century press advertisements featured in the comic-books. It would have been nice if at least a sample of them was included. Finally, the 12 original covers are all included.

There are some illustration extras at the begining and end of each volume and a 2 page-fold "Game Of The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen". However, I want to note that I don't own the previous Absolutes, hardcovers or TPBs editions to check if there is missing material from them. I can only compare this Omnibus with the original comic-book editions.

In conclusion I'm very pleased with the presentation, even though the mentioned issues. I was really afraid DC would have make a mess of this Omnibus, but fortunately that was not the case. If you don't own any of the previous editions, this Omnibus is a great way to go: this are excellent stories with excellent art that any serious comic-book enthusiast should read and have.

This is a nice handsome volume presenting volumes 1 and 2 of Alan Moore's classic and highly enjoyable "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." The paper is oversized and of high quality and the edition has a nice slipcase making for very attractive presentation. On the whole, I would say it's not quite on par with Marvel's lush and gorgeous omnibuses but it is quite close, which is intended as a compliment.

As for story, volumes 1 and 2 of LoEG are really the only two volumes worth owning. Black Dossier was frankly an embarrassment and an exceedingly weak piece of work compared to the stories contained in the previous volumes. When I initially read the mini-series as they were released, my impression was that volume 2 was an enjoyable tale in its own right which nonetheless paled in comparison to the tight scripting of the first volume. On re-reading I have confirmed that impression. LoEG volume 1 is one of Moore's best action adventure works. It is a tightly plotted, incredibly well scripted adventure/mystery with highly entertaining characters in a thoroughly engaging plot. Volume 2 certainly builds on volume 1 but misses the awe and mystery that was so well captured in the previous, not to mention failing to recreate the incredible atmosphere of late 19th century London evoked by the talented pencils of Moore's accomplice here, Mr. Kevin O'Neil. In volume 1 in particular, O'Neil's pencils evoke a 19th Century London that is decadent and dense, dangerous and teeming with life and with interesting and intriguing characters. His work on both volumes is a major element of Moore's success with this series.

LoEG represents some of the most unabashedly entertaining works of a writer who's powers are certainly waning of late. Very unfortunately, they also represent the best that LoEG is likely to get. Although producing new stories every other year or so, these tales pale in comparison to the craft, excitement, intrigue and fun of the stories contained in this omnibus. If you don't already own any issues, I highly recommend this. For those who only own the tpb collections, I would also recommend it.

HASH(0x95e42ac8) étoiles sur 5 A Must Own Book For Comic Fans, And One Of Moore's Top 3 Greatest Works 23 juin 2014
Par EisNinE - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I purchased the hardcover version, which is identical to this one, except for the cover and binding. 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 extra's 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. The first series began not long after I rediscovered comics, and it made a strong impression on me, along with Heart of Empire by Bryan Talbot, Sin City and Hard Boiled by Frank Miller and Geof Darrow, Eightball by Dan Clowes, and Black Hole by Charles Burns. In the more than 15 years since the first issue was published, I've read volumes 1 and 2 several times; it's like the Simpsons in it's prime, in that it's so tightly coiled in it's narrative, 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. Nevertheless, this paperback edition provides readers with one of the greatest mainstream comics in history, all 420 pages of volumes 1 and 2, for just $22.00. If you've never read the books collected here, just BUY it. And don't consider the crappy movie of the same name when deliberating on this purchase, it has nothing to do with the comic; if it had, it would have been an amazing film, instead of a cheesy summer suckfest.

HASH(0x95e3bf78) étoiles sur 5 A Fine Reproduction 6 décembre 2012
Par David Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm in my sixth decade and I still love a good comic book read. I've owned several copies of these two series. The trouble is, I lend them out to people as an example of how good a "funny book" can be, and I don't get them back. Or at least in the same condition.

This excellent hardcover presents the first two stories in the saga of the League. With all the accompanying text, and alternate covers.

It's great fun to choose a page at random and try to figure out all the references. Who is that other human on Mars, and who is Dr. Moreau talking about when he speaks about his nephew? Why does one of Nemo's crew members have a black arrow on his back? I could go on and on.

Trouble is, and this not a fault of the book, none of the above questions are answered anywhere in these pages. You gotta do the research.

Also, I have talked to people who saw the movie, and even some who liked it. The story here bears little resemblance to the film. Personally, I see that as a good thing.

HASH(0x95eaa210) étoiles sur 5 Great story, great writer, great art, what more can you ask for? 22 octobre 2012
Par Rob D'Aquin - Publié sur Amazon.com

I remember buying these when they came out, and how original this idea was. I lost all of my comics, including these in Hurricane Katrina, so now I buy the omnibus and HC editions, to at least just try and have the stories back. I remember thinking when I heard they were making this a film, that there is NO way in hell they could do this justice, which turned out to be MORE than true. What a travesty that was. If you are a fan of the film, you NEED to read these and see what true art is, with both story telling and artwork. I knew Sean Connery would never play an opiate addicted, washed up hero, who is a weakling (at first). Anyways, if you are into classic literature, and adventure stories, buy this now, you will not be disappointed.
