Listener Opinions

    " 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. :) "

    " Clever (much better than the dumb-arsed movie) with a thousand references to the most obscure Victoriana imaginable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Salzman | 11/14/2013

    " Interesting art, good story. Wiki was my friend in figuring out where all the secondary characters come from. This actually got me a little interested Jules Verne so I might try some of him next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 11/12/2013

    " A neat story, all the more fun if you're familiar with literary characters from the 1800s. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Micah | 10/29/2013

    " Alan Moore can't do much wrong in my book... or his! (That was a pun.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amie-Rose | 10/20/2013

    " It was fun. The art was neat and I had seen the movie & I like how it tied into many of the other books & characters I have read about (eg, Dr.Moreau, Sherlock Holmes, Capt Nemo, Dr.Jekyl/Mr.Hyde, Invisible Man, etc). The only thing missing was a little more character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey Dinsmore | 10/18/2013

    " For my money, more entertaining than the Watchmen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dj Ocho | 8/9/2013

    " Some nice twists on classic tales, but I think some more steeping in the literature of the time would help my appreciation "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanie | 12/30/2012

    " Hilarious and right on point. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rivka D. | 11/18/2012

    " I heard a lot about this and had high expectations. The art was okay, but individual expressions were awful and blank. I thought the idea was really great, but the storyline would have been better without all that vulgarity... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris The Story Reading Ape | 9/18/2012

    " What a great read this was, even though I'd already seen the movie, in fact, it helped me envisage the characters better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mayra | 4/26/2012

    " This one was really, really awesome. I'm torn between this and Watchmen, and I'm somewhat tempted to think the latter is the best one. Nevertheless, League was so fun and page-turning. And the fact that it's custom-made for literature geeks like me makes it much more endearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 10/10/2008

    " While not quite at the same level artistically as Watchmen, Alan Moore has written an entertaining and rousing tale featuring pulp adventure characters from yesteryear. At times it wallows in the spot-the-reference syndrome, but it's all in good fun and well worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda | 7/17/2008

    " Much better than the movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trevor | 5/22/2006

    " This series was brilliant. Well done, Messrs Moore and O'Neill - bravo! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 12/28/2005

    " No Wathcmen, but it's still Alan Moore so it's worth a read. I was entertained, but certainly not blown away like I was with some of his other work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Snow | 12/8/2005

    " re-read for fun "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Tan | 12/4/2005

    " can't wait til i get my hands on volume 2 :) "

    " Really beautiful and engaging. "
