      Half the genius of LoEG are the innummerable literary, etc references hidden within. Nevins supplement opens up the in-jokes to all of us laymen so that we too can be part of the club. This work allows one to much better appreciate the effort Moore and O'Neill put into the books. The additional material in this volume also provides solid backgrounds on LoEG's major players, which is right handy for those of us not completely familiar with all of the original material. Smashing interviews to boot [...]

      Für Detektive und NeugierigeDass Moore mit "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" einen modernen Klassiker des Comicgenres erschaffen hat ist wohl nicht anzuzweifeln. Das herausragende an diesem Werk ist die Einbindung von so vielen Quellen, versteckten Hinweisen, dass selbst bei intensiver Lektüre dem neugierigen und inquisitiven Leser Fragen offen bleiben. Diese Fragen beantwortet dieses Buch hier für den ersten Band von LoEG.Welcher Vorlage folgt dieser Charakter auf Seite 23, Panel 2? In ein [...]

      This is a read once kind of book--"The Unofficial Companion to The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." If you've read LOEG, you know that is is packed full of characters from and references to other works of fiction. Mr. Nevins has gone through and made notes about them all. Since I'm not quite as well read as him, I loved paging through the book and finding out about the references I didn't catch. But now that I'm done, well, I doubt if I'll read it again. I mean, occasionally you get a referen [...]

      A great, and quite necessary, companion to the first LoEG volume, which has definitely piqued my interest in 19th century (and older) fiction. The annotations are a little more detailed and refined than on Nevins' website, but I did like seeing the guest contributions and the kind of progress and piecing together of the puzzle that I got from reading the web version. The essays were interesting, but tended to just refer to a list of other titles a bit much. The interview with Moore was excellent [...]

    6. Rick on said:

      Heroes & Monsters: The Unofficial Companion to The League of Extraordinary Gentleman reprints all of the information from Nevin’s popular website plus biographies and analyses of all the major players, commentary by Kevin O’Neill, introduction by Alan Moore, and an interview with Moore. All this wrapped in a gorgeous John Picacio cover. Nevins’ book is not needed to enjoy League, but it will greatly enhance your reading pleasure.

    7. Travis on said:

      Jess Nevins attempts to catalogue all the literary characters, places and things Alan Moore included in his 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics.He's a brave man and has created a reference book that is almost as much fun to read as the source.As a literature geek, I knew a lot of this, but was glad to find out about the ones I missed or guessed wrong about.

    8. Emily on said:

      Jess Nevins is my kinda man - a humble librarian interested in Victoriana and sci-fi/fantasy. Hot!This book is, of course, fun only if you've read the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novel, which I admit might not be for everyone. But it's for me and Jess!

    9. Jdetrick on said:

      A very helpful way to get the full experience out of the first volume of League of Extraordinary Gentleman. The essays in the back are a little less strong and ever towards the pompous a few times, but overall, they're informative and interesting.

    10. Chris on said:

      Worth reading along with The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume One by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill.
