The Black Dossier wiki last edited by jazz1987 on 06/08/14 08:45AM View full history

Acclaimed writer Alan Moore once again joins forces with artist Kevin O'Neill for THE BLACK DOSSIER — a stunning original hardcover graphic novel that is the next chapter in the fantastic saga of THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN! England in the mid-1950s is not the same as it was. The powers that be have instituted some changes. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen have been disbanded and disavowed, and the country is under the control of an iron-fisted regime. Now, after many years, the still youthful Mina Murray and a rejuvenated Allan Quatermain return in search of some answers — answers that can only be found in a book buried deep in the vaults of their old headquarters — a book that holds the key to the hidden history of the League throughout the ages: The Black Dossier. As Allan and Mina delve into the details of their precursors, some dating back centuries, they must elude their dangerous pursuers who are hellbent on retrieving the lost manuscript…and ending the League once and for all. THE BLACK DOSSIER is an elaborately designed, cutting-edge volume that includes a "Tijuana Bible" insert and a 3-D section complete with custom glasses, as well as additional text pieces, maps, and a stunning cutaway double-page spread of Captain Nemo's Nautilus submarine by Kevin O'Neill. Don't miss what's sure to be one of the most talked-about books of the year!

A Good Comic for Engligh Majors! 0

I thought this was stronger then the other ones personally. Loved the Tempest and Virginia Woolf references. Orlando is one of my favorite characters and glad to see him/her in the League books. Having the name Vita as a woman was just perfect. I thought this one was the strongest because Moore reference books you would have read in English classes both in high school (such as 1984 and the Great Gatsby) and ones you would read in college such as (Gulliver's Travels and the Tempest). I would...

Alan walks away from DC the right way. 0

From the messy situation of the America's Best Comics (ABC) contract, Alan Moore could of walked and not even done the ABC works or he could of done what he did and show he actually has class.  The media makes him look like a jerk, but he went back on his oath to never work for DC again, to honor the commitment of his ABC agreements with the set artist in the series attached to them.  The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was the only book he still have legal right to.  Once its legal completion...
