Description (by producer & GT in English only) :
A rousing work of adventure by the esteemed author of FROM HELL and the acclaimed illustrator of MARSHAL LAW.

London, 1898. The Victorian Era draws to a close and the twentieth century approaches. It is a time of great change and an age of stagnation, a period of chaste order and ignoble chaos. It is an era in need of champions.

Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, Hawley Griffin, Dr. Henry Jekyll, Mr. Edward Hyde, and Mina Murray are those champions, and together they comprise the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Recruited by the enigmatic Campion Bond, under orders from the mysterious "M," these six adventurers are pressed into service by their empire in its time of need. Now they must face the nefarious Doctor and his vile plan for world domination. But things are not entirely as they seem; other factors, cryptic and corpuscular, are also at play. A remarkable drama ensues.

MR. ALAN MOORE, author and former circus exhibit (as "The What-Is-It from Borneo"), is chiefly famed for his chapbooks produced with the younger reader in mind. He astounded the Penny Dreadful world with such noted pamphlets as "A Child's Garden of Venereal Horrors" (1864), and "Cocaine and Rowing: The Sure Way to Health" (1872) before inheriting a Cumbrian jute mill and, in 1904, expiring of Scorn.

MR. KEVIN O'NEILL commenced his career as a pugilist in 1859. Due to excessive drinking and repeated cerebral splintering during an early bout with Walter Phibbs, the Widnes Goliath, O'Neill passed into an insensible state from which he was never fully to awaken. However, in 1885, doctors discovered that by attaching galvanising cables directly to the comatose prize-fighter's brain, his right hand could be made to delineate exquisite and fanciful illustrations, such as his well-known series "Modern Times, or, The Progress of a Scented Nonce," and, of course, his scandalous "Queen Victoria and Emily Pankhurst Girl-on-Girl Novelty Flipbook." Mr. O'Neill is currently maintained on a special diet at the London Hospital.
