The Next League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Comic Will Feature Jules Verne & H.P. Lovecraft... And I Just Fainted!!!

I may not agree with Alan Moore and all the belly aching he does about people using his characters, but I certainely do like Moore's work.... especially The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I am a huge fan of Moore's literary mash-ups, and I can't wait for the upcoming one shot Nemo: Heart of Ice. The tale will obviously focus on Captain Nemo, but apparently the ride will take him to Antarctica where he will no doubt be At The Mountains Of Madness from H.P. Lovecraft's classic tales. He will also have Jules Verne along for the ride, and I am sure Moore has some other tricks up his sleeve as well. I always found it kinda funny that Moore is so adamant about DC Comics & others corrupting his characters when they use them without Moore's involvement, yet he has no problem stealing all of the great literary characters & settings he likes for his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen stories himself (aside from the core characters of the League who are all major literary characters of the past, Moore has also incorporated John Carter, Lewis Carroll, War of the Worlds, The Avengers (UK version), James Bond, and tons of other shit from other authors works).  The books is due by the end of 2012. You can see the original article and more of Allan Moore's hypocritical rantings on the subject of stealing characters by clicking here & here.

  1. It´s not "he". it´s "she". Remember, it´s the 1920s, so the Captain will be the original Nemo´s daughter.
