Details: Product description The bestselling League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series continues in this standalone graphic novel! It's 1925, fifteen long years since Janni Dakkar first tried to escape the legacy of her dying science-pirate father, only to accept her destiny as the new Nemo, captain of the legendary Nautilus. Now, tired of her unending spree of plunder and destruction, Janni launches a grand expedition to surpass her father's greatest failure: the exploration of Antarctica. Hot on her frozen trail are a trio of genius inventors, hired by an influential publishing tycoon to retrieve the plundered valuables of an African queen. It's a deadly race to the bottom of the world -- an uncharted land of wonder and horror where time is broken and the mountains bring madness. Jules Verne meets H.P. Lovecraft in the unforgettable final showdown, lost in the living, beating and appallingly inhuman HEART OF ICE. From Booklist A decade ago, Moore was the most critically acclaimed writer in comics and among the most prolific. In recent years, however, his output has largely been limited to occasional installments of his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series, set in an alternate-reality Britain, where classic adventure fiction characters protect the empire. In this one, taking place 15 years after the events of Century: 1910 (2009), Janni Dakkar, the daughter of Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo (also the Pirate Jenny of the Threepenny Opera), embarks on an Antarctic expedition, pursued by American inventors-heroes Frank Reade Jr. and Jack Swyfte (a homonymic namesake to a character who’s not in the public domain), who are employed by a Hearstian newspaper tycoon named Kane. But neither team is prepared for the Lovecraftian horror that awaits them at the South Pole. O’Neill’s detailed, angular art brings the literary characters to vivid life and expertly captures the period atmosphere. Moore’s playfully intelligent take on the boys’-adventure genre serves as a reminder of just how much comics fans lost when he all but abandoned the medium. --Gordon Flagg About the Author Alan Moore is widely regarded as the best and most influential writer in the history of comics. His seminal works include Miracleman and Watchmen, for which he won the coveted Hugo Award. Never one to limit himself in form or content, Moore has also published novels, Voice of the Fire and Jerusalem, and an epic poem, The Mirror of Love. Four of his ground-breaking graphic novels— From Hell, Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen—have been adapted to the silver screen. Moore currently resides in Northampton, England.
