    " having grown up reading the classic adventure tales, i love the concept and make-up of the motley league. everything is as it should be: imperfect characters, ridiculous racism, frequent and increasingly improbable guest appearances from various victorian literature. quite intriguing for someone who grew up reading the various source novels. for someone who didn't, probably not so much. "

    " Alan Moore is brilliant, and this is a fun romp through Victorian literature, recast into a universe where the history of popular imagination is history itself. Don't let the crappy movie Hollywood churned out based on this discourage you - they adapted Moore's characters (badly in some cases) and created their own story around them, with lackluster results - but this is a much more engaging and intelligent work. The more well-read you are, the more hidden literature references you'll discover within. And if you really get tweaky with it, check out Jess Nevin's annotations for the whole series to see what you missed. "

    " Descent...but nothing special. "

    " Just finished reading this for my Victorian Afterlives English Class. It was amazing! I loved how Alan Moore incorporated well known fictional Victorian characters into his graphic novel! For those familiar with Victorian literature, you will not stop laughing at all the humorous jokes throughout the text. I was initially skeptical about this comic being a good read, but I was happily proven wrong. :) "
