More About the Author
"Acclaimed comics author Moore (Watchmen) has combined his love of 19th-century adventure literature with an imaginative mastery of its 20th-century corollary, the superhero comic book." "Publishers Weekly ""A sharp-witted gloss on the scientific and sexual obsessions of Victorian society." "Time""
About the Author
Alan Moore is perhaps the most acclaimed writer in the graphic story medium, having garnered countless awards for works such as WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA, SWAMP THING and MIRACLEMAN. He is also the mastermind behind the America's Best Comics line, through which he has created (along with many talented illustrators) THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, PROMETHEA, TOM STRONG, TOMORROW STORIES and TOP TEN. As one of the medium's most important innovators since the early 1980s, Moore has influenced an entire generation of comics creators, and his work continues to inspire an ever-growing audience.

A previous reviewer noted that there is an explicit sex scene. This is true. If you don't like explicit references to sex then Allan Moore is probably the wrong author to read.
The sex scene progressed the story of the two characters and set up the premise for the next series: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Century (three more unique and engaging novels in the series). It also celebrated that fact that most human bodies don't match an unrealistic aesthetic ideal that is prevalent in modern culture but that this shouldn't preclude sexual gratification and enjoyment. It also gave scope to recognize that the characters had histories and how they were not just physically but psychologically affected by past events.
The book doesn't look like it's going to fall apart or anything, so don't worry about that being the case. In fact, I imagine this will be kicking around for quite a long time, glued pages or not. Although it would naturally be better for a book of this size to have sewn pages, the fact that it has glued ones wouldn't ordinarily bother me. Trouble is, in this case the pages are glued so close to the spine that, as you go further and further through the book, details in the art are lost in the gutter, as are pieces of character's speech bubbles too. This is even more problematic here because there's two significantly large prose sections following both story arcs.
The words that are partially lost are readable if you open the book wider as you go through, but I thought I'd point this out anyway for those who are browsing the various forms of the book. Although I don't own either (obviously), you may want to look at the separate trade paperbacks for the two story arcs collected here, as I can only imagine that no details in the gutter are lost in those slimmer copies. Like I said, they are readable here if you don't mind stretching the book out a bit, but you're still going to lose parts of the fantastic looking art, so keep that in mind if you decide to go ahead with this anyway.Read more ›
