Book 23. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol 2. By Alan Moore

Book 23. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol 2. By Alan Moore graphic novel 
228 pages 

In this story, we are being invaded by Martians and it is up to the League to put a stop to it!

In my previous post of Vol 1, I had mentioned that Alan Moore had some "issues".

That did not change upon reading the 2nd volume. The problem was, in the first volume it did nothing to derail the story. That was not the case in the second volume. I felt detatched from this story with the graphic violence and nudity in the novel. I am not a pure soul by any means, but for some reason nudity in this form does nothing for me. I am sure that is not the case for other people, but this is my review, damn it. :)

What was good about the story was the continued character development of some of the characters. Moore does a good job of understand why most of the characters are the way they are. That is not easy to do in something so small, but there are times where he is pure genious (especially in The Watchmen).

The plot was very hokey, and that may have been intentional. But it was not as interesting as the 1st volume.

Because of some of the things that bothered me about this novel, my rating is quite a bit lower.

Rating. Average, average, average
