Top Shelf has announced Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's final installment in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen spinoff Nemo trilogy. The final chapter will be called River of Ghosts, and will feature an 80 year old Janni Dakkar (the daughter of the original Nemo and protagonist of the trilogy) trek down the Amazon in one final adventure through a bunch of dangerous (and fictional) lands.
While no other characters were specifically mentioned in the announcement, Multiversity pointed out that two of the areas being explored in the book, Yu-Atlanchi and Maple White Land, reference A Merritt's The Face of the Abyss and Doyle's Land of the Lost.
Nemo: River of Ghosts will be released in Spring 2015. The full press release for the book can be found below:
In a world where all the fictions ever written coalesce into a rich mosaic, it’s 1975. Janni Dakkar, pirate queen of Lincoln Island and head of the fabled Nemo family, is eighty years old and beginning to display a tenuous grasp on reality. Pursuing shadows from her past—or her imagination—she embarks on what may be a final voyage down the vastness of the Amazon, a last attempt to put to rest the blood-drenched spectres of old.
With allies and adversaries old and new, we accompany an ageing predator on her obsessive trek into the cultural landscape of a strange new continent, from the ruined city of Yu-Atlanchi to the fabulous plateau of Maple White Land. As the dark threads in her narrative are drawn into an inescapable web, Captain Nemo leads her hearse-black Nautilus in a desperate raid on horrors believed dead for decades.
Through the exotic spectacle of an imagined South America, Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill steer their fifty-year-long Nemo trilogy to its remarkable conclusion, borne upon a RIVER OF GHOSTS. -- a 56-page full-color hardcover, 6 5/8” x 10 1/8”, co-published by Top Shelf and Knockabout.
