3.0 out of 5 stars Better than some, but even then..., 9 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: League of Extraordinary Gentleman: Century 2009 (Paperback)
After the first 2 volumes, that had really revolutionised and re-invigorated the dated concepts of Wold-Newton universe or 'Steampunk' Victoriana, this series began its descent into chaos. The well-structured world slowly became a post-modern whirlpool where literary references and in-jokes grew at the expense of the narrative tautness. Now, it seems, that the saga is finally over. We have death of an iconic character, and frustration & devastation (along-with some stuff that would really enrage Harry Potter fans) pervade every page. This is a bleak volume, and I am sorely missing Jess Nevin's indispensable annotations. Nevertheless, compared to the experimental 'Black Dossier' and some of the other pointless stuff thrown about in the previous volumes, this time the narrative was continuous and quite readable. This is NOT Alan Moore at his best, but still, that's better than many others.
