The League Of Extraordinary
Wow. The stories are out there, you just have to know the right place to stick your head in the lake and fish them out - and if Alan Moore isn't the master craftsman, then I don't know who is.
So just what the hell is it all about? Basically, The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen brings together Captain Nemo, Hawley Griffin, Henry Jeckyll, Edward Hyde, Allan Quartermain and Mina Murray to 'service the Empire' in its time of need. Their job: To help win back London's skies - but if they win their battle, will it unleash a far greater evil?
For the record, the movie is due out next summer, but only a fool would wait to see the $80 million sure-fire blockbuster with Sean Connery. Directed by Stephen Norrington of Blade fame with a script by James Robinson (Starman), it's going to be long hot summer!
