This classic tale from Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill is now available in the UK in hardcover and softcover editions. England in the mid-1950s is not the same as it was. The powers that be have instituted some changes. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen have been disbanded and disavowed, and the country is under the control of an iron-fisted regime.
Now, after many years, the still youthful Mina Murray and a rejuvenated Allan Quatermain return in search of some answers — answers that can only be found in a book buried deep in the vaults of their old headquarters — a book that holds the key to the hidden history of the League throughout the ages: The Black Dossier. As Allan and Mina delve into the details of their precursors, some dating back centuries, they must elude their dangerous pursuers who are hell-bent on retrieving the lost manuscript… and ending the League once and for all.
The Black Dossier is an elaborately designed, cutting-edge volume that includes a “Tijuana Bible” insert and a 3-D section complete with glasses, as well as additional text pieces, maps, and several different paper stocks. Previously difficult to get hold of because of international copyright, now available in these UK editions.
