Présentation de l'éditeur

AN ALL-NEW LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN ADVENTURE!

In the grim cold of February surfaces a thrilling new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen book: NEMO: HEART OF ICE, a full-color 56-page adventure in the classic pulp tradition by the inestimable Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill.

It's 1925, fifteen long years since Janni Dakkar first tried to escape the legacy of her dying science-pirate father, only to accept her destiny as the new Nemo, captain of the legendary Nautilus. Now, tired of her unending spree of plunder and destruction, Janni launches a grand expedition to surpass her father's greatest failure: the exploration of Antarctica. Hot on her frozen trail are a trio of genius inventors, hired by an influential publishing tycoon to retrieve the plundered valuables of an African queen. It's a deadly race to the bottom of the world -- an uncharted land of wonder and horror where time is broken and the mountains bring madness. Jules Verne meets H.P. Lovecraft in the unforgettable final showdown, lost in the living, beating and appallingly inhuman HEART OF ICE.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tekeli ! 5 novembre 2013

Quel plaisir d'assister à une nouvelle incursion dans l'univers de la Ligue des Gentlemen Extraordinaires, nous plongeant ici dans l'imaginaire de la Belle époque et des Années Folles concernant le continent antarctique. Jules Verne et Lovecraft sont bien évidemment convoqués, mais ils sont loin d'être les seuls.

(par contre, c'est mieux d'avoir lu au moins Century 1910, des mêmes auteurs, histoire de resituer le tout dans la trame générale, et de saisir certains des tenants et aboutissants, surtout en ce qui concerne la protagoniste)

Il s'agit d'une histoire complète parue en 2013. Elle peut être lue indépendamment des autres aventures de la League of extraordinary Gentlemen (en abrégé LoeG) ; elle gagne en signification en étant lue après l'histoire "Century". Le scénario est d'Alan Moore, les dessins et les encrages de Kevin O'Neill, la mise en couleurs de Ben Dimagmaliw.

En 1925, dans le port de New York, Janni Dakkar et l'équipage du Nautilus dérobent les bagages et les affaires d'Ayesha (reine de Kôr) qui vient passer quelques jours dans le domaine de Charles Foster Kane. Ayant assisté à ce vol, Ayesha éventre son roi consort (Leo Vincey) qui est resté sans rien faire. Après ce forfait, Janni Dakkar se confie à Broad Arrow Jack : elle est lassée par ces actes de piraterie. Elle a décidé de suivre les traces de son père en se lançant dans une expédition sur le continent antarctique, en poussant plus loin que ne l'a fait son père. De son coté, Kane organise la récupération des biens d'Ayesha en engageant Frank Reade junior, et Jack Wright qui vont se lancer chacun de leur coté à la poursuite de Janni et son équipage sur le continent antarctique.

Le tome se termine avec un texte de 4 pages (un courte nouvelle) dans lequel Hildy Johnson, une échotière (à l'origine un personnage d'une comédie de Broadway de 1928), est invitée par Janni Dakkar à assister au mariage de Hira Dakkar & Armand Robur, pour écrire un article pour la presse people afin de faire connaître au monde l'union des maîtres de la mer (Nemo) et de l'air (Robur).

Excellent little number, incorporating Dakkar's daughter, HP Lovecraft and Citizen Kane. This offshoot of League of Extraordinary gentlemen is well worth the 8.99 price tag. Astuce, read it in one sitting, otherwise you may find yourself lost and confused...it is Alan Moore, afterall..

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Entertaining Tale that Charts a Simpler Course than LOEG: Century 8 juillet 2014
Par C. K. Lidster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
[It's easy to criticize Alan Moore. He's crafted so many of the 'essential' works of what was once considered a trash medium, anything less is taken as an insult, by some. How many times can he surpass himself, or even match the stories that made him an icon. Watchmen, From Hell, Lost Girls, A Small Killing, LOEG, Top Ten, Promethea -- he's created works that will be remembered, and read, fifty years from now (even if they're not printed on paper). But he's also created tales that are too experimental for most, and even some that are a bit light, intellectually, for fans. Apparently some readers will find every effort that is inferior to Watchmen unforgivable; but judged fairly, the LOEG books of the last decade are excellent, entertaining reads, with a complexity that few authors can handle. Readers don't have to recognize every cultural reference, and it's ridiculous to think Moore expected that of his audience. The tapestry that once incorporated the narrative threads of Victorian England now approaches Bayeux-like dimensions, including multiple time periods and media. For those willing to engage with the work, it can be fascinating and even instructive, sending people on a hunt across Wikipedia and Amazon. That doesn't happen much in comics; it's an isolated, self-referential art-form. Too many fans read nothing but comics, so an introduction to something outside the comic-book containment field is always positive. But if not, so what? Moore is still writing stories that stand on their own (except the Black Dossier, I suppose). And I'll take Moore's work over the repetitious superhero drek Marvel and DC churn out.]

Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill continue to build their literary comics-wonderland, a meta-narrative that incorporates classic fiction both great and obscure. Following the course charted by Janni, the daughter and successor of the original League of Extraordinary Gentlemen member Captain Nemo, the aging crew of the dreaded Nautilus make their way to Antarctica. Tiring of murder and plunder, Janni retraces her fathers steps, seeking adventure and a chance to solve the mystery of what it was he found on the frozen continent, something so terrible it nearly drove one of the world's most fearsome and fearless men insane. Meanwhile, they are unaware that their latest attack on property belonging to a strange and exotic 'queen' has made them a dangerous enemy; enlisting the aid of famous science-heroes/mercenaries, they track Janni and her crew to the south pole, willing to murder anyone who comes between them and their prey. But they have stumbled into an alien world constructed from nightmares, where an elder god known as 'Tekelele' sleeps. Even space and time become sick in this mountain range, or as H.P. Lovecraft dubbed them, 'The Mountains of Madness'.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Disappointing League Book 5 mars 2013
Par E. David Swan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I am a huge fan of Alan Moore's going back almost three decades and a huge fan of the first two `League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' books but since volume II there really hasn't been anything League related that has captured me. The Black Dossier was my least favorite but the three Century books weren't a tremendous amount better as far as I'm concerned. The Century books certainly weren't terrible but I know what Alan Moore is capable of and there is no way those books will be looked at as some of his best work. My suspicion is that what has happened with the series is that Alan Moore is now writing for himself and not the reader. He slips in reference after reference to classic books that take place in the era in which the stories take place but they are generally so obscure that few readers will catch more than a small fraction of them.

The titular Nemo from Heart of Ice is not Prince Dakkar but is instead his less interesting daughter Janni who made brief appearances in previous League material as the new Captain of the Nautilus following her father's death. The story opens with Janni and crew stealing goods from a Princess Ayesha and her American protectors including Charles Foster Kane from Citizen Kane. I had to look up Ayesha on Wikipedia to find out that she's a character from a book called `She' by Henry Rider Haggard. Kane is only ever referred to by his last name and again I needed Wikipedia to decode his actual identity. There are multiple Kane's from literature and of course this Kane is from a movie not a book so I was thrown off.

Following the plundering Janni decides to travel to Antarctica for reasons that aren't entirely clear to me. On her trail is a group of American "scientific adventurers" intent on retrieving Ayesha's stolen goods. The adventurers include Frank Reade Jr. Jack Wright and Tom Swift with Swift being the only one I've ever heard of and knowing his name was about the limit of my knowledge. Janni's first stop is a place of French backwards talking cartoon animals called Megapatagonia. Most of the rest of the book is a cat and mouse chase between Janni and her small group and Princess Ayesha's mercenaries.

It's certainly possible to write a story filled with obscure characters from literature and make it work and Alan Moore did it with the first two volumes. However, in those books Moore weaved references to characters from literature into his story whereas now it seems as if the references ARE the story. The section with Megapatagonia takes up two entire pages and has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the story. There are three panels discussing the Steam Man of the Prairies who is then never mentioned again and the only reason I can figure out why Moore would have Janni travel to Antarctica would be to have her come across a location from one of H.P. Lovecraft's classic novels.

Another issue is a question of who the protagonists are. It was Janni Dakkar and her crew that attacked Princess Ayesha, stealing her goods and killing her people so it would seem like Janni is the villain but Ayesha is a ruthless woman who takes pleasure in breaking the necks of pigeons. The scientific adventurers were good guys in their respective books but Moore has them acting somewhat villainous particularly Tom Swift. There is just the merest wisp of a story with most of the characters motivations unexplained. Moore doesn't spend enough time on individual characters for the reader to know much of anything about them or care about their welfare.

One thing I will say about these books is that they inspire me to find out more about these classic characters but as a story I'm just not loving them. In fact I would put Heart of Ice below the three Century books in terms of enjoyment. Alan Moore remains my all time favorite writer but I can't deny it's been a long time since I've loved anything new he's put out.

I really enjoyed this installment of LOEG. It was fun to take a break from Mina and Alan and return to the Nautilus.

It’s 1925 and Janni, the daughter of Captain Nemo, is now captain of the Nautilus and continuing her father’s pirating ways. She and her crew rob an African Queen of her treasures while visiting New York and, in retaliation, a newspaper magnate called Kane sends some goons after her to reclaim it. Then Janni decides to take a trip to the Antarctic, emulating her father’s journey years earlier and the goons follow. And in the Antarctic, they will see the Mountains of Madness. Gibberish ensues.

Yup, this is Alan Moore regurgitating more HP Lovecraft after his Neonomicon book a few years ago. This time he’s doing the Mountains of Madness (MoM) story, incorporating it into his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (LXG) series, though if you’ve never read any of the other books, Heart of Ice can be read as a standalone book – that’s also why it feels so pointless as it adds nothing to the overall LXG series.

Readers of LXG will remember Janni from Century: 1910 when she ran away from Nemo for a life on land and wound up in a brothel - it was a pretty terrible book, so a follow-up wasn’t really necessary but here we go anyway. In Heart of Ice, Moore wants to show us how Janni became the cold-hearted person she was in later life though really a woman could become quite bitter being used as sex slave for years, so I’m not sure what the point of this book was.

The best parts of Moore’s LXG series is the way he plays with famous characters and stories from culture, reimagining and twisting them in new and exciting ways. In Heart of Ice, he doesn’t do anything new with Lovecraft’s MoM story, he just retells it (how imaginative!), and badly at that too. Besides Janni, all of the characters look exactly the same, partly due to wearing heavy clothing due to the icy weather, and don’t have distinct personalities. In LXG stories, the characters are based on a mix of famous and obscure fictional characters though, while I could recognise a few (Charles Foster Kane, Ishmael, Tom Swift), I didn’t care about finding out more about the others, in contrast to previous LXG books.

MoM isn’t Lovecraft’s best story and in Moore’s hands it manages to become even more tedious – Janni and co. wander about the ice, a big dark hole appears, a bizarre Lovecraftian monster show up, the end. It’s too short and too lacking in any strong narrative to be a decent book. I get that the jumbled up sequence was supposed to illustrate why it’s called the Mountains of Madness but it only further underlined how incoherent the story was up until that point and how little I cared about it or any of the characters.

I think he’s trying to write an interesting classic adventure yarn but he’s barely making any sense here, much like his later LXG books. Kevin O’Neill’s artwork is just ok but he’s done much better elsewhere and I found his work here to be particularly uninspired, especially when drawing Lovecraft’s horrors.

Nemo: Heart of Ice is a waste of time on all levels with Moore revealing how tapped out he is at this point in his career. He may have written some classics 30 years ago but his latest stuff is forgettable and trite at best. If you want to read a great comic book adaptation of Lovecraft’s story, check out INJ Culbard’s At the Mountains of Madness.

Par A long time ago... - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen first came out, I was enthralled. The characters, the art, the stories, the inclusion of such forgotten characters as Gullivar of Mars, as well as a lot of great twists and turns, made this series well worth waiting for, well worth reading and re-reading. Sadly, I don't feel Nemo, Heart of Ice follows that well. The story of Captain Nemo's daughter, following her fathers footsteps to the arctic circle, where they encounter the creatures from Lovecrafts At the Mountains of Madness, should have been so much more, but sadly, it wasn't. It was an OK read, but it felt somewhat incomplete. It wasn't as compelling and simply didn't drag me back for another round as did Volumes 1 and 2. Worth one read is the best I can say about it.
