I have been a big of Alan Moore fan since Watchmen and have loved the earlier instalments of TLoEG. I was looking forward to 2009 even if I'd had a growing feeling that the previous two releases of this particular trilogy had not been of the same standard as the earlier books. I feel a bit disloyal saying this but ultimately I think this book and the trilogy as a whole have been poor. By focusing on an increasingly small group of protagonists; so that only Murray and Orlando (a one dimensional character for the entire series) feature in 2009 the book seems to have lost something; although any series that has utilised and then discarded so many iconic characters from classic fiction like Mr Hyde, Hawley Griffin, Capt. Nemo, Fu Man Chu, Professor Moriarty and James Bond is likely to struggle. Perhaps it is because Moore was piggy backing his own stories on the works of masters of science fiction and mystery (H G Wells, Conan Doyle, Sax Rohmer and Orwell) that the earlier books worked so well? Left to his own devices Moore has fallen back on the increasingly tedious referencing of figures from popular and not so popular culture and blending them into the "reality" of the Leagues world. I don't know whether this is to parody the earlier books or because it was a way to pad out a weak storyline; the effect is that many of the panels are more like a puzzle book where you end up trying to work out if a particularly poorly drawn background character (the artwork has been on a downward spiral since 1910) is that bloke from some rubbish 1970's BBC series. It's difficult to see how Moore can return the series to its previous heights.

Format: Paperback
This story is the third part of the latest adventure of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, continuing on from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century 1969. Forty years later, Lando starts to have one of his funny turns, and soon she goes looking for her old friends. A trip to M.I.6. HQ and a spot of soul-corrupting with `Em' and she is soon reunited with Mina, and before long they are on the Hogwarts Express to track down the Moonchild or the anti-Christ or someone answering that description. We discover the final fate of Oliver Crowley - anti-Christa are not necessarily very grateful for the job; and then it is back to London for a final showdown with a very naughty boy, before the dues-ex-machina that is [spoiler] floats down on her umbrella to sort things out; then it's of to Africa for a funeral, and it is over. Well, wasn't that fun. I'm sure there was more to it for those with eyes to see, etc. etc., and there's always the `spot the familiar face' game to be played with the characters in the street. Well, at least it whiled away a slow bus journey to and from the library.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 1 was perfect.
Vol. 2 was brilliant.
Black Dossier was mixed but on the whole absolutely fascinating.
1910 was a little disappointing but my hopes were up.
1969 was pretty disappointing and my hopes were fading.
2009 is simply disappointing.

I was hoping that this last volume would solve the problems with the previous parts but it has failed to do so. Being far too concerned with obscure references and selling short characters we have learnt to love.

Orlando is an interesting character but when he/she overshadows both the protagonists of the series then you have a serious problem. He/she is just far too arrogant to care about.

The book isn't without its moments. Its criticism of Harry Potter is hilarious and the ending is rather touching
but book is just too interested in being clever than telling a compelling story.

Have been a bit of a fan of the series but have to be brutally honest that this a bit of a let down on several levels although there is some redeeming qualities. The series lurches to a conclusion (or does it). Plot is a bit wearisome in this outing and had a sense that the need to put cameos in of the current great and good over ruled things. Too many things fitted together too neatly particular the Emam Night stuff and lot of novel ended up on what I can only describe as a fairly dull boss fight. What was good was the art as ever, door being left open, the Hogwarts stuff and Moore's ability to link to other things. Characterwise Mina looks more like a frightened bunny in headlights as the series progresses and this one takes that process further sadly and Orlando become an even shallower caricature, but Quartermain is fairly well realised.

Not where to start but if you begin with the other books and become rightly hooked, you'll end up here and just feel a wee bit let down

Disappointed that the series seemed to fade out, as though Alan More had lost interest. However the Antichrist at Hogwarts sequence was marvellously dark. Perhaps it faded out as that is what heroes do? Possibly overthinking that: basically it wasn't as good, by some margin, as the first two League graphic novels.
