    1. It's easy to see The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol.1 as a fluffy action confection. It doesn't smack you in the head with a puddle of blood and a happy face pin like Watchmen. Nor does it open with a girl about to be raped in a post-apocalyptic Neo-Fascist London like V for Vendetta. It doesn't open with extreme gravitas. Instead, we get a fun variation of the classic spy mission opener: Mina Murray (nee Harker, nee Murray) is ordered on a mission by Campion Bond (grandfather of 007) to [...]


    2. Bah. This was another disappointing read for me. I had high hopes for this series. This book brings together a problem-solving team composed of characters from Victorian lit: Mina Murray (whose brief marriage to Jonathan Harker has ended badly), the Invisible Man, Captain Nemo, Allan Quatermain, and Henry Jekyll & Edward Hyde. While Sherlock Holmes is not present in the flesh, he is certainly on everyone's minds. How could such a premise go wrong? Maybe Moore just needs a lot more space and [...]


    3. This was much better than I thought it would be. Well done Alan Moore!The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen takes place during the Victorian Era in London and it is a steampunk version of the British Empire. A mysterious head of British Intelligence (Mr. M) wants to put together a League to combat extraordinary threats to the Empire.This first volume has Mina Murray ( from Dracula- Harker's wife) acting as the recruiting agent. The first few stories show how each member was recruited from opium- [...]


    4. In a word? Underwhelming.In a sentence? Boring as hell, needlessly bleak, & oversexed to the point of annoyance. The elephant in the room is, of course, the movie adaptation. While I'm not blind to the flaws of the film (namely the varied FX quality & the sprawling plot that bounces from one stage to another), I'm not ashamed to say I prefer the screen version. Indeed, I'll go a step further & admit to a great cinematic crime: I like the movie. It makes me smile. This book, however, [...]


    5. Za pocetak dosta bolje od filma. Ako vas je film razocarao strip ce vam vratiti poverenje u ove likove i ovu pricu.Sama prica je dosta jednostavna mada se fino uklapa u format steampunk-a i lici na nesto sto bi mozda i Zil Vern napisao ali glavna prednost su sami heroji koji vode ovu pricu. Mada termin heroja bas i nije adekvatan posto imamo pirata, ubicu, silovatelja, narkomana i raspustenicu (sto za ono vreme nije bas pozitivna osobina :) ). Ali sama prica je dosta mracna i smestena u okruzenj [...]


    6. Olvidémonos todos de la película, por favor. Y tengamos en cuenta una cosa: Este es un cómic para amantes de los libros con mente abierta.Esta es una de las pocas grandes obras de Alan Moore que me quedaban por leer, y llevaba años con ganas, al principio tengo que decir que me decepcionó un poco, me parecía la típica historia de aventuras ambientada en la época victoriana Pero los personajes literarios tan oscuros como geniales, los miles de guiños, los paralelismos con las novelitas b [...]


    7. I found this utterly entertaining. What i loved most are the dialogues. The way the characters talk to each other is just beautiful.Can't wait to continue with the series <3


    8. Alan Moore has had terrible luck with the film industry. The only adapatation of his work that he had the presence of mind to disavow before its release was the surprisingly good "V for Vendetta." The others of his works produced for the screen were the tepidly-received "From Hell" and the god-awful "League of Extraordinary Gentleman" adaptation, "LXG."The film was stillborn, creatively, lacking the tongue-in-cheek humor and moral ambiguity that made the books so enjoyable, and was very obviousl [...]


    9. 1.5 to 2.0 stars. I was really disappointed with this graphic novel after going into it was high expectations. Not quite bad enough to rate 1 star as there are some clever scenes and some of the dialogue is engaging. On the whole though, this is an AMAZING CONCEPT that deserved better treatment than it received here.


    10. Great concept, horrible execution. The art is atrociously awful, and sexism and racism abound (perhaps legitimate given the time period, but is it necessary to revel in them with such glee?). As a diehard Sherlockian, I was a bit confused about the timing--this story takes place in 1898, and Sherlock Holmes is believed dead; however, his "hiatus" was actually 1891-1894, so he'd totally be around at this point. As continuity errors go, it's a big one, since the plot and particularly the villain a [...]


    11. Great concept, terrible execution. Moore manages to reduce about a dozen Victorian adventure classics to fit into his apparently pea-sized brain, and out comes this. This book offended both my conservative and my liberal impulses, with banal pornographic sequences, flat, amoral "heroes" and offensive Asian stereotypes. (Moore has less sympathy for Chinese people than Tolkien has for orcs.) This book certainly isn't suitable for children, and it's too childish for me. So I don't know who the audi [...]


    12. Not to be confused with the bizarre but hilarious British television show about a dysfunctional rural town, The League of Gentlemen.This graphic novel is daring, imaginative, artistic and engaging, and my favourite part of it would hands-down be its characters. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is unforgettable and practically alive as a work of fiction.



    13. I admit I saw the movie first. With that out of the way, I am going to try hard not to compare the two in my review, even though I did when I was reading. I will just add that I have no quarrels with the casting decisions all around (not including the addition of Dorian Gray and Tom Sawyer). I've been wanting to read this for a while because I love mashups, and I have a particular love for Victorian genre fiction and literature. I finally bit the bullet and pulled this off my library shelves.Her [...]


    14. ‘La Liga de los Caballeros Extraordinarios, Volumen 1’ (The League of the Extraordinary Gentleman 1-6, 2000) es una recopilación de las ediciones en grapa que se publicaron a finales de los 90. El guión es del aclamado Alan Moore, y el dibujo de Kevin O’Neill. La historia transcurre en 1898, cuando Mina Murray es contratada por el gobierno británico para reclutar a una serie de peculiares, por llamarles de alguna manera, personajes. Su misión, enfrentarse a una conspiración contra Gra [...]


    15. Historia en seis numeros donde se forma un super grupo de famosos personajes de la literatura victoriana, Allan Quatermain, Nemo, Jekill/Hyde, el hombre invisible y Mina Harker. Bajo el mando de Campion Bond son encargados de vigilar y luchar contra el robo de cavorita, el primer material antigravedad secuestrado con la idea de bombardear Londres por aire en las puertas del siglo XX.Muy entretenida y original obra del maestro Moore.


    16. 4-4.5 starsThe adaptation-loved-it shelf may change. Bear in mind, I saw the movie years before I even knew the graphic novel existed (and, thus, years ago). I do still love the idea of some of literature's most beloved characters banding together to create a kickass supergroup. And something else I loved about the book that I think got pushed aside in the film, but Mina being the leader? Hell yeah, girl. Looking forward to volume 2, the Black Dossier, and the rest.


    17. I was so not impressed by this. It's my first Alan Moore book, and possibly my last because this just really didn't float my boat. We see a lot of racism and sexism straight away, and a lot of brutality. I don't really mind brutality in graphic novels, but this was just silly and I wasn't interested in the story. The art was rubbish-y (although art is fairly personal so some may like it, it's just not my style) and the story was just a lot of nonsense (again, in my opinion). Sadly, not for me. 1 [...]


    18. Alan, you son of a bitch, you've done it again. Recycling literary icons into an old time adventure of steampunk, mystery, villainy, and foreign lands. The writing is styled for 1889, which is cool. The artwork is well done and surprisingly colorful, reminding me of Gibbons in Watchmen. My biggest gripe is how women are portrayed. Nothing new for Moore, however.But let's not gloss over what really matters: the characters. I will admit that I am a shitty reader of classics, even as a former Engli [...]



    19. Sorryt my cup of English Breakfast Tea. I found it rather disappointing. I'd never read any of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen before this, I'd only seen the movie (of course it was a bit disappointing to so)This, like a lot of books that I've been disappointed in is one I think is a good idea. It just doesn't, "come off". Willamina who is not Mina (am I the only one who actually read that novel????). Allan Quatermain is an opium addict, Captain Nemo is still trucking around under the seaa [...]


    20. Y yo que iba con miedo porque en su momento vi la película y no me gustó nada El cómic es extraordinario, y nunca mejor dicho. Dibujo excelente y guión todavía mejor. Los personajes son tan geniales que no puedes evitar cogerles cariño y devorar las páginas con avidez. 100% recomendado, tanto si lees cómics como si nunca lo has hecho y no sabes por donde empezar. Cualquier amante de la lectura lo disfrutará.


    21. I read this a few years ago quickly, and Greg suggested I reread it because I didn't think it was as awesome as he did… :) It is great, I think, on rereading, getting all these nineteenth century mythical/fantastical/literary heroes together to fight crime and save England…. a lot of fun and as are most things by Dean of Comics Moore, smart and entertainingly smart. The art work by O'Neill is great, too.


    22. You can find my review of this trade paperback at:bookidote.wordpress/2015/Yours truly,LashaanLashaan & Trang | Bloggers and Book ReviewersOfficial blog: bookidote.wordpress


    23. I know the comics by Alan Moore for reading V for Vendetta and Watchmen. I had seen the movie based on this story and, as always happens, at least for the first volume the comics is better. The story is intriguing, with great graphics and twists in the right proportion. There are some scenes definitely splatter. The idea of bringing together some of the most famous literary characters of the 19th century, in a superhero team, is great! Extraordinary characters, but everyone brings his skills and [...]


    24. The idea is brilliant. The artwork is incredible as well. The amount of work put in this is obviously huge, from the level of detail in the drawings to the few pages of victorian advertisements. But I feel the characters lack a certain depth. The reader is supposed to be familiar with them, but they are literary characters, and putting them in a comic book cuts away a lot of their personalities. What's more, not all of them are the way I like to remember. I don't remember Griffin (the Invisible [...]


    25. A load of crap. A really cool concept (fictional characters forming a team of secret agents/superheroes) that was not well-done AT ALL.Hey, if you like rape, you'll love this book. If you like weak female characters, you'll love this book. If you like rooting for the rapists, you'll love this book. If you like your graphic novels chock full of men (but not in the fun way), you'll love this book. If you love the Castle Anthrax, but wish it had one of _those_ dungeons in it, you'll love this book. [...]


    26. I picked this up from the Covina Library's shelves on a whim, and wasn't disappointed. It's Moore's usual take on our heroes (and Brad's review anent that here explores that aspect cogently), as well as being entertaining.Unfortunately, the library doesn't have any of the subsequent volumes so it may be a while before I can continue my adventures with the League.One thing I especially liked about the comic was the inclusion of Mina Murray in the all-boys-club League. She always has been my favor [...]


    27. Moore takes what is basically fan fiction for English lit. majors and creates one of the best comics to come out in years!A brilliant adventure story with a ton of fun cameos and a wicked sense of humor.The mystery is clever, the character interaction is great, there are so many cool adventure moments and Kevin Nowlan's art perfectly suits the vibe Moore is trying to createy drawback is I now drive my friends crazy by creating all kinds of different LoEG type groups in my mind and then having to [...]


    28. Quite simply I was not amused.Too much blood and skin; not enough plot and characterization. It seems the authors picked up on the sexism and anti-foreigner sentiments of the Victorian era and forgot completely about the sense of polite restraint. It was rather painful to see some of my favorite characters turned into hussies, druggies, and well, so forth. Alas, poor concept, you've been spoilt utterly by a Moore-onic artist.
