League of Extraordinary Gentlemen IV: The Tempest HC

Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill

After an epic twenty-year journey through the entirety of human culture-the biggest cross-continuity 'universe' that is conceivable-Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill conclude both their legendary League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and their equally legendary comic-book careers with the series' spectacular fourth and final volume, The Tempest.

Tying up the slenderest of plot threads and allusions from the three preceding volumes, The Black Dossier, and the Nemo trilogy into a dazzling and ingenious bow, the world's most accomplished and bad-tempered artist-writer team use their most stylistically adventurous outing yet to display the glories of the medium they are leaving; to demonstrate the excitement that attracted them to the field in the first place; and to analyze, critically and entertainingly, the reasons for their departure.

Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha's lost African city of Kor, and the domed citadel of 'We' on the devastated Earth of the year 2996, the dense and yet furiously paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe from Lincoln Island to modern America to the Blazing World; from the Jacobean antiquity of Prospero's Men to the superhero-inundated pastures of the present to the unimaginable reaches of a shimmering science-fiction future.

With a cast list that includes many of the most iconic figures from literature and pop culture, and a tempo that conveys the terrible momentum of inevitable events, this is literally and literarily the story to end all stories.

Originally published as a six-issue run of unfashionable, outmoded and flimsy children's comics that would make you appear emotionally backward if you read them on the bus, this climactic magnum opus also reprints classic English super-team publication The Seven Stars from the murky black-and-white reachers of 1964.

A magnificent celebration of everything comics were, are, and could be, any appreciator or student of the medium would be unwise to miss The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume IV: The Tempest.

Welcome to the story to end all stories.

Two decades of literary League lunacy have all been building to this, the most ambitious meta-comic imaginable.

Alan Moore is an English writer known primarily for his work in comic books including Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Swamp Thing, Batman: The Killing Joke, From Hell, Promethea, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Tegneserier på engelsk

Velkommen til Faraos Cigarers US Comics-afdeling. Her har vi et bredt udvalg af tegneserier på engelsk.

 

 
Tegneserier på engelsk

I Faraos Cigarers US Comics-afdeling kan du finde traditionelle tegneserier med superhelte, hvor de store superhelte-forlag Marvel & DC står for det meste. Det er f.eks. superhelte som Spider-Man, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Deadpool, Justice League, Avengers og X-Men.

Vi har dog også yderligere nævneværdige mesterværker som Alan Moores “The Watchmen” og “Top Ten”, og ikke mindst “Kurt Busiek’s Astro City.” Vi kan også tilbyde tegneserier på engelsk med hårdkogt noir som Frank Millers “Sin City”, Ed Brubakers “Criminal”, Brian Azzarello og Eduardo Rissos “100 Bullets”. Når det gælder spændende fantasy-tegneserier, fører vi bl.a. Mike Mignolas “Hellboy”, Neil Gaimans “The Sandman”, Alan Moores “The Swamp Thing”, “Promethea” samt “The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” Vi fører også  tankevækkende og dystopisk science fiction  som Rick Remenders “Black Science”, Brian K. Vaughans “Saga” og “Y, The Last Man” samt Jeff Lemires “Descender.” Endelig fører vi også grufuld horror som Robert Kirkmans “The Walking Dead” og Scott Snyders “American Vampire.”

Hvis du er til historier fra den virkelige verden (eller i nabolaget), så har vi også graphic novels med rejsedagbøger fra nær og fjern, krigsjournalistik, (u)lykkelig kærlighed og indsigtsfulde hverdagshistorier.

De fleste amerikanske tegneserier bliver udgivet i serieformat i 20 siders månedlige hæfter (også kaldet single issues), oftest med masser af reklamesider i og på størrelse med et Anders And-blad. Det er dog blevet standard, at disse hæfter bliver genoptrykt i et trade paperback-format (ca. 17x26cm) med typisk 5-6 hæfter i hver, et pænt omslag og uden reklamerne. Størstedelen af vores  tegneserier på engelsk er trade paperbacks, men der findes også flere variationer af både større og mindre paperbacks (softcover), samt en række indbundne luksus-udgivelser (hardcover eller kortere bare HC).
