Now, at last, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century trilogy reaches its apocalyptic finale!
"A stunning return to form."
"Among the finest works in Moore's oevre... Fast-paced, visually dense and wildly imaginative."
These are just a few of the rave reviews Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill have received since bringing The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen "Century" trilogy to Top Shelf & Knockabout. It's also been Diamond Comics' #1 bestselling graphic novel in America, with each new book -- even hitting the New York Times Bestseller list!
In this third and final chapter, our narrative draws to its cataclysmic close in London 2009. The magical child whose ominous coming has been foretold for the past hundred years has now been born and has grown up to claim his dreadful heritage. His promised aeon of unending terror can commence, the world can now be ended starting with North London, and there is no League, extraordinary or otherwise, that now stands in his way. The bitter, intractable war of attrition in Q'umar crawls bloodily to its fifth year, away in Kashmir a Sikh terrorist with a now-nuclear-armed submarine wages a holy war against Islam that might push the whole world into atomic holocaust, and in a London mental institution there's a patient who insists that she has all the answers.
It's a spectacular finish that must be seen to be believed.
