Revue de presse

'This is some of the smoothest, most seamless storytelling I've seen from Moore, and I'm convinced that a large part of that stems from his confidence in O'Neill to bear as much of the storytelling weight with his art as the writer does with his text.' --Bleeding Cool

'The plotting of this romp is fairly straightforward, but the real pleasure lies in the bewildering array of intertextual references and smartly satirical use of literary figures, famous and obscure. Where Moore and O'Neill go from here is anybody's guess, but they've got the whole of literary creation, past and present, to plunder. Long may their reign of terror continue.' --The List

'A damn fine read, a delight of weird alt-fiction, with two veteran creators proving that they're on fine, fine form, and O'Neill in particular doing some of the best work of his career.' - --Forbidden Planet

Présentation de l'éditeur

From The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen...

Sixteen years ago, notorious science-brigand Janni Nemo journeyed into the frozen reaches of Antarctica to resolve her father's weighty legacy in a storm of madness and loss, barely escaping with her Nautilus and her life.

Now it is 1941, and with her daughter strategically married into the family of aerial warlord Jean Robur, Janni's raiders have only limited contact with the military might of the clownish German-Tomanian dictator Adenoid Hynkel. But when the pirate queen learns that her loved ones are held hostage in the nightmarish Berlin, she has no choice save to intervene directly, travelling with her ageing lover Broad Arrow Jack into the belly of the beastly metropolis. Within that alienated city await monsters, criminals and legends, including the remaining vestiges of Germany's notorious 'Twilight Heroes', a dark Teutonic counterpart to Mina Murray's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And waiting at the far end of this gauntlet of alarming adversaries there is something much, much worse.

Continuing in the thrilling tradition of Heart of Ice, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill rampage through twentieth-century culture in a blazing new adventure, set in a city of totalitarian shadows and mechanical nightmares. Cultures clash and lives are lost in the explosive collision of four unforgettable women, lost in the black and bloody alleyways where thrive THE ROSES OF BERLIN.

Ce tome est le deuxième consacré au personnage de Janni Dakkar, après Nemo - Heart of ice. Il est paru initialement en 2014, écrit par Alan Moore, dessiné et encré par Kevin O'Neill, mis en couleurs par Ben Dimagmaliw. Il comprend une histoire en bandes dessinées de 48 pages "The roses of Berlin", ainsi qu'un texte en prose "The Johnson report" de 4 pages (avec 4 petites illustrations).

The roses of Berlin - En 1941, Adenoid Hynkel (le dictateur de la Tomainia) se rend en Afrique pour conclure un pacte avec une personne à l'identité inconnue. Toujours en 1941, Janni Dakkar utilise le Nautilius pour se livrer à des actes de piraterie, cette fois-ci exclusivement contre des navires de la Tomainia. Lors d'un abordage, elle apprend que le vaisseau de son gendre Armand Robur a été abattu et qu'il est détenu avec sa fille Hira Dakkar à Berlin. Elle décide sur le champ de se rendre à Berlin pour une mission clandestine et éclair afin de les libérer. Dans le Nautiloïd (un sous-marin de poche), elle remonte l'Elbe, en compagnie de Broad Arrow Jack, jusqu'à Berlin. Sur place les 2 sauveteurs sont attendus par les soldats du sommeil.

Pour ce deuxième consacré à Janni Dakkar (née en 1895, également connue sous le nom de Jenny Diver, fille du Capitaine Nemo), Alan Moore a conçu une intrigue encore plus simple que le tome précédent. Dakkar et Jack se rendent à Berlin, échappent à une course poursuite dans la cité, retrouvent Armand Robur et sa femme Hira, et s'en vont.

HASH(0x96836c48) étoiles sur 5 Hope Springs Eternal That The League Can Regain Glory 24 mars 2014
Par David Swan - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
No writer has brought me more reading pleasure than Alan Moore and please note, I didn't say COMIC BOOK writer. I own a total of three DC Absolute editions and two of them are Alan Moore's and it would have been three out of four except I missed my window of opportunity on The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Absolute Edition. Moore is my favorite writer period but it has been a long time since I have given any new material from him five stars. Starting with The League of Extraordinary Gentleman the Black Dossier, continuing through the three Century books and now the two Nemo it's been a bumpy ride. Moore has inspired me to read dozens of classic books based on the characters he's included in his stories. The problem is the more I find out about these characters the more problems develop and none more than Janni Nemo.

I have complained in the past that Moore demands a TON from the reader. The original two volumes were awesome but they included well known characters and even in those cases Moore took the time to establish who they were. The problem is that in later books Moore uses increasingly obscure characters with little to no background. If a reader read "Nemo: Heart of Ice" and had never heard of Tom Swift Jr. they would just assume he was a villain in literature. Except he isn't. He is a classic unimpeachable good guy. I understand that Moore needs to make adjustment to weave all these disparate characters together but Janni Nemo should never exist. If you read Jules Verne's "The Mysterious Island" it is established that the death of his family is the motivating factor in Captain Nemo's life. Everything he did including building the Nautilus was a result of his familial loss. The existence of Janni destroys Nemo's raison d'etre. I've done my homework on trying to understand better the characters Moore has used but now it leads me to question how much Alan Moore himself knows about these characters.

So if I put aside all my issues with the usage of characters is this a well written book? Alan Moore remains the greatest comic writer ever and the scripting is excellent it's in the plot where these books have been underwhelming. Janni and Broad Arrow Jack raid a MASSIVE futuristic underwater Nazi base filled with Nazi sleep commandos (ok, that's officially cool). The base is being run by the female robot from Metropolis and Princess Ayesha from the previous book, `Heart of Ice'. There are a whole new group of characters for me to look up including Dr. Mabuse, Robur the Conqueror, Dr. Caligari, Dr. Rotwang and Adenoid Hynkel. Besides Robur these are all characters from cinema rather than literature with Hynkel being a humorous tweak from Moore (look the name up on Wikipedia). I probably enjoyed this book more than the previous four books (and way more than Black Dossier) but this might be due to lowered expectations. Heart of Ice was mostly one long chase and this book is pretty much just a 56 page cat and mouse game between Janni Nemo and the team of Ayesha and the Metropolis Robot.

This book is not going to break its way into my top 20 favorite Alan Moore books but it was an enjoyable read. What I enjoy most about this series is finding characters and then looking them up on Wikipedia to find out more. As I said I've read a ton of books including `The Steam Man of the Prairies', Tom Swift, Jules Verne and tons of others so in that respect this series has inspired me to become more literate. I just hope that this series is not Moore's Swan Song because he certainly has demonstrated far more writing prowess in the past than what is displayed here. Let me add that love it or hate it this is a lovingly crafted book that even includes threaded binding which is a very nice touch.

Addendum: Inspired by this book I went and watched The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, which is considered one of the great films of the silent era. It did add somewhat to my enjoyment of the book. The one page splash that introduces Caligari and the "Sleep Soldiers" uses the same odd angles as the film which was considered a very influential film of German Expressionism. That was a great artistic nod that few people would notice. The Sleep Soldiers are a reference to Cesare the Somnambulist that Caligari used as a killer. On the other hand Caligari only acquired Cesare by chance and showed no ability to actually CREATE a sleeping killer. The look of Caligari differs from the film quite a bit which is weird because that would seem like a slam dunk. Also, the twist ending of `The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari' pretty much makes his appearance here quite impossible. Still, it was fun researching the character.

Addendum 2: I watched Metropolis, The Great Dictator and Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler. The biggest surprise was how much I loved the Dr. Mabuse film. As someone with a very short attention span I cannot believe how much I enjoyed a four and a half hour silent film from 1922 Germany but it really was amazing. Metropolis and Dr. Mabuse were both directed by Fritz Lang but I was far more impressed by Mabuse. It's clear that Moore is not sticking to the source material. For instance in this book Dr. Rotwang designed Metropolis but there is no indication in the movie that this is so. Also, the Moloch Machine didn't actually exist and was a hallucination of the main character in the film. Moore also creates a problem by having Adenoid Hynkel's Tomainia in the same universe as Adolph Hitler and Germany since Hynkel and Tomainia were clearly intended to BE Hitler and Germany.

Addendum 3: I read Jules Verne's Robur the Conqueror and The Master of the World. Moore seems to have gotten Robur's smallish `Terror' mixed up with the much larger `Albatross'. The `Terror' was only about 30 feet long. One could claim that this was a new LARGER `Terror' except that Robur in this book is described as young and the `Terror' wasn't created until he was older. This `Terror' is significantly larger than even the 100 foot `Albatross' which itself had no weapons of defense. Technologically wise Moore's `Terror' is far beyond anything Verne wrote about while Robur himself comes off as much weaker than the literary character.

A rather short story, with interesting creepy visuals and lots of action, but minimal character development. As other reviewers have noted, Alan Moore seems to delight in sheer pretentiousness, with entire pages of (untranslated) dialogue in German.

This is the sequel to the graphic novel "Heart Of Ice" and follows through brilliantly. It is a great Steampunk story with superb illustrations done in the Art Deco style of the 1920s and 1930s. Fun characters, and a neat twist on real history - as well as the continuing adaptation of the story of the Nemo family!

HASH(0x968407b0) étoiles sur 5 A great romp through WWII Berlin 16 avril 2014
Par Thomas Morrison - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I've really enjoyed the latest installments of the League and this one is no different. I'm continually surprised by Moore's ability to reinvent and keep things fresh. After every League book I ask myself "what more can he possibly do?" and he always seems to find cool new references to mine.

This time Moore goes to 1941 Germany though rather than Hitler being in power we have Chaplin's great dictator, Adenoid Hynkel. Moore has also brought on board the great wealth of expressionist German cinema with characters like Dr. Caligari, Dr. Mabuse and the robot Maria from Metropolis.

The story revolves around Janni Dakkar, (Nemo's daughter and the subject of Heart of Ice) and Broad Arrow Jack having to go into Hynker's Tomania (from Charley Chaplin’s the Great Dictator) in order to save their daughter. The story is full of twists and turns but the real fun is beholding O'Neill's spectacular views of Hynker's Tomania by way of Rotwang's Metropolis. O'Neill gives us one spectacular shot of the city after another while Janni and Jack run from the terrifying Maria and search for their daughter.

The real joy of this book is to see Moore's years of experience subtly weave this tale full of clever references. It's fun to read a sentence that contains a strange reference you just know is full of meaning and potential. Great writers are lucky to get 10 years of producing great works but as Moore has always done, he has surprised me once again by staying relevant and producing another great work. I wouldn't say that this is one of Moore's best, but I would say that it is a highly entertaining work and one worth buying and enjoying. And what more can you ask for?
