Review: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen





Prestation: Do you like vampires ? do you like monsters? do you like badass rifle wielding beard rocking old guys? if your answer is Yes, Well you will totally love this comic book series.



Story: The comic strip takes in humorous way the principle of a serial novel contrasting unconventional characters that are particularly dark. To defend England against the most extraordinary threat, a secret agent named Campion Bond, acting on behalf of a mysterious Mister M, gives Miss Wilhelmina Murray (one of the characters of Dracula) the task to recruit individuals with special talents:
          -Allan Quatermain, King Solomon's Mines by Henry Rider Haggard.

                -Dr. Henry Jekyll and his alter ego, Mr. Hyde, from the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.

-Captain Nemo from Jules Verne's, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

-Hawley Griffin , The Invisible ManNote that Alan Moore gave him the name of the killer Hawley Crippen.

Drawing: The drawing is a bit odd. It is not bad, but it's not something i have seen before . The characters have their own unique styles and they are not forgettable. Knowing that the characters are mainly from books they did a pretty awesome job.



Verdict : It is an amazing series but it may not appeal to many guys (and girls) but if you watched the movie and liked it , you will love this. I give it [7.5/10].
