Reviews - What do customers think about Heroes & Monsters: The Unofficial Companion to the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen?

Jess acknowledged me!  Mar 14, 2004
No matter one's area of expertise - there is always someone better. I thought I was expert on Sherlock Holmes. Jess makes me look like a piker.

And later on in the Alan Moore Interview - Jess gets Alan Moore to demolish my Nemo theory.


The essays are also worth reading.

I got mine autographed  Jul 23, 2003
The great comic book The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was packed with references to literature from the Victorian era. Some of these books are famous, some of them are obscure. Jess Nevins has done an excellent job of tracking down the books, so now you can know the history of these characters, many of which have been forgotten one hundred years later. For instance, I don't think too many people knew who "Rose Coote", the headmistress of the girl's school, was. Well, in this book, you can learn the history of that character, as well as every other character who is so much as mentioned in the comic. By the way, I met Jess at the San Diego Comic Con, and he said he is working on an Encyclopedia about the League. From what he said, it will be around a thousand pages long, so start saving your money now.
Excellent companion piece!  Jul 6, 2003
For any true fan of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (the comics, not the film), this is the book to purchase. The League is not only a wonderful story, but is also filled to the brim with references and images from other Victorian fictions of the same era. Some references are quite obvious, many are obscure, but all test your intelligence and literary know-how. There is a certain satisfaction in identifying a character on a page from a book you read years ago. Jess Nevins has collected all the annotations of these reference points contained in the first volume of LOEG. Reading it is a great enhancement to the already considerable enjoyment to be found in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen!
