The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 2: Alan Moore, Kevin O'Neill

Another great installment of the League from Moore. This time he takes the conceit of using characters from literature to a new level, and uses "War of the World" as the scaffolding or this story. I love the twist of incorporating Dr. Moreau as well. I wish some of the stuff that happens on Mars at the beginning of the story was fleshed out more, as I found it fascinating. The story-telling is quirky and fun, and it's a very enjoyable ride. The encyclopedia-like almanac at the end has some interesting tidbits in it, and does contain some explanations useful if you plan on reading the Black Dossier, but otherwise I found that section a bit dry.
