Book Review: the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 2

Borrowed this from S as well, so it's not part of my library either.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 2 by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill

228 pages / 2004 / 4.5 stars / Graphic Novel

The second volume in Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's Victorian superhero drama, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, takes everything that made the first volume so enjoyable and made it better. Better villains, even more ingenious literary references and all the elements that make for a good sequel (sabotage, traitors, relationships that weren't there before, teases of things before and yet to come) all made for a great read.

I look forward to reading the future releases in this series.
