Alan Moore's 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' Returns in March
The long-running meta-narrative from the writer of "Watchmen" moves to Nazi Germany in the new "Nemo: The Roses of Berlin" graphic novel.
Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's critically acclaimed League of Extraordinary Gentlemen may have completed its tour through the last century of culture, magic and adventure, but the series' legacy lives on with a second spinoff graphic novel due for release this spring.
Nemo: The Roses of Berlin, a sequel to last year's Nemo: Heart of Ice, again focuses on Janni Dakkar, the daughter of Captain Nemo and new commander of the Nautilus. In the new 56-page release, Moore and O'Neill continue to reinvent the world around them with the introduction of "Adenoid Hynkel," the German dictator terrorizing the world in 1941, and his "Twilight Heroes," described by publisher Top Shelf Publications as "a dark Teutonic counterpart to [the] League of Extraordinary Gentlemen."
Promising "a blazing new adventure, set in a city of totalitarian shadows and mechanical nightmares," The Roses of Berlin will be released in hardcover in March.
