    1. Nicolo Yu says:

      The League faces an existential question of its place in the twentieth century. Ten years into it, Mina Murray and her team of literary characters face a dark threat that threatens London and the rest of the British Empire.The cast simply could not match the gravitas of a team with Nemo, Quartermain, Jekyll, Hyde and Dorian Gray. I barely know the new additions but it's nothing can't shed light in a few finger strokes. But that's the thing, it's simply not as iconic as the original crew.Still, [...]

      Kazimo da je interesantan eksperiment koji se meni uopste nije svideo i ostavimo na tome. Prica ima svoj finih momenata ali ogromnim delojm je izuzetno konfuzna bez da objasni bilo sta. Moguce da je to poenta ali meni nije leglo.

    3. Antonomasia says:

      [4.5] Marvellous fun!I was disappointed by the original League graphic novel and film, yet, as I have a thing about characters placed at different points in history, had been quite irrationally drawn to Century since I first saw it. And a good thing that was too, it turns out.I really liked the art here (by Kevin O'Neill), energetic and caricature-like, perhaps made things that weren't fun seem a little too much fun, but hey, it's a comic. Also a hint of Modernism / Cubism to it at times, which [...]

      The League of Extraordinary Gentleman is taken into all new times but Alan Moore. fast forward to 1910 and we are dealing with an all new league. Only Mina (she's a vampire so essentially immortal) Harker is still around.This time the story revolves around Capt Nemo's daughter- Janni. I shall not lie- I found Janni to be rather annoying. When her dying father asks her to take over the Nautilus, Janni comes up with the brilliant plan to just swim away and leave on a tramp steamer. She then ends u [...]

    5. George says:

      It’s hard to describe LOEG: Century 1910. I mean this in the most literal sense. This graphic novel is a handful, and as such almost defies description. First, the characters: I was an English major in college, and had no idea who any of these people are. Don’t expect any help from Alan Moore; there is almost no back-story. Raffles is a thief – we know this because he steals something. Carnacki is psychic – we know this because he has a vision. And Lando is an immortal hermaphrodite who [...]

    6. Steve says:

      Let’s cut right to the chase: the current installment in Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN is the first part of a trilogy and frankly doesn’t offer much other than what I hope is a setup for a big eventual payoff, so I say wait for the collected edition of all three parts. That’s the short of it and the long is about to follow, so if you don’t want to read spoilers bail right now.This 72-page first section of a trilogy takes place in 1910 (hence the [...]

    7. Jake says:

      I really, really, wanted to like this.For those not familiar--the original League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was an interesting idea in which Alan Moore took a number of characters from various stories that were all roughly contemporaneous in their setting, and meshed them together in a sort of "Victorian superhero team". So you had Mina Harker, Alan Quartermain, Mr. Hyde, Captain Nemo, and the Invisible Man all teaming up to, well, fight crime. It's a bit more complicated than that, but that wa [...]

      If you like my reviews check out my beauty and book blog, ReadsByAmanda! Thanks for reading! :)For those of you who don't know what Century is, and how it ties to the original two volumes of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series, I'll give you a quick rundown. Century is a trilogy that's a standalone adventure spanning three comic books that takes place after the events of Volume Two and Black Dossier. It's the next books in the series, but also stands on its own as the Century Trilogy. R [...]

    9. Robert Browning says:

      Alan Moore provides another consistently high-quality League of Extraordinary Gentlemen with the new 1910 volume. This provides a more straight-forward story for readers, similar to the first two Volumes and after reading this straight through in one sitting, I'm very eager to see where the rest of Volume Three winds up going. Chronologically speaking, this book falls before the Black Dossier but I'd still recommend reading the prior work first before entering into 1910. While not outright requi [...]

    10. Sam Quixote says:

      The League has always been Moore's best work in my opinion. "Watchmen" was dull and overrated, "V for Vendetta" is now hopelessly outdated, mired as it was in Thatcher's time, and his "Tom Strong" series hasn't got a pulse, just a bland post modern take on 50s sci fi. But I loved The LXG series. Vol 1 was great and even though Vol 2 got slated I really enjoyed it. I tried with Black Dossier but in the end it just collapsed under the weight of its own references. Moore's prose is very weak. He ma [...]

    11. Brooke says:

      Better than the Black Dossier debacle. Not as good as the original books, partly because the members of the League are pretty blah this time. Can we get some personalities here? Storywise, I'm not sure what the point was. While I know that this is part 1 in a trilogy, it should still feel like it moved the narrative forward. Instead, it pretty much said at the end, "Oh, silly us, the story doesn't happen until NEXT time."

    12. Miriam says:

      Crammed with gratuitous allusions and gratuitous (female, of course) nudity. The larger apocalyptic plot arc seemed interesting, the actual contents of this book not so much.Not a fan of O'Neill's art.And was all that extensive cabaret singing really necessary?

    13. Kalamitoso says:

      El tiempo que no leía historias de la Liga de.Bueno, de la clásica, la del Hombre invisible, Mr. Hyde, etcQuizá por eso la lectura de 1910 se hace algo confusa respecto a los nuevos personajes, pero si te animas a pensar un poco y detenerte en los dibujos, enseguida le coges el tranquillo. Me ha encantado este primer episodio: por Orlando (qué risas), por el Prisionero de Londres, por los guías musicales como en los coros de una tragedia griegaY por esa sensación de zambullirte en un unive [...]

    14. Jamie Connolly says:

      It’s great but not as great as volumes 1 and 2.

    15. Tim Pendry says:

      '1910', the latest (2009) in Alan Moore's 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' is a bit of a potboiler by any standards. As usual, Moore assumes an in-depth knowledge in the reader of the highways and byways of past popular and esoteric culture, but whereas, in the past, the jumbling of images and themes appeared to be both coherent and instructive, here it is just showy. It is as if Moore was making sure that he got in all the references in '1910' that were left over from previous works. Wha [...]

    16. Aaron says:

      With the third volume in this graphic novel series, writer Alan Moore, who also created The Watchmen, jumps his character forward quite a few years. The League, who is still part of the British secret service has changed quite a bit. Mina Murray is still a member, though now she is in charge along with a rejuvenated Allan Quartermain. All of their other partners have left. They have been replaced with another interesting set of literary/historical characters.First their is Carnacki, a ghost-find [...]

    17. Lincoln says:

      Century: 1910 is the third volume of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's much-lauded League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series. Mina Murray and the (alleged) son of Allan Quatermain are joined by a new group of literary characters: thieving Raffles, occultist Carnacki and gender-bending Orlando. They're on a quest to unearth the secret plot of a clandestine occult group. Meanwhile, Captain Nemo is on his deathbed. After he argues with his young daughter, Janni, about taking over the family business (a [...]

    18. Bonnie says:

      The League is back, newly formed (sort of if you've read the last three books, particularly The Black Dossier, you know about this version of the League already) and it's ready to defend London. Expect to need to sit down with a wiki after you read this (at least I did) to get all the characters and references. If you're a LoEG fan already, that shouldn't be new! Nemo's daughter, Janni, really makes the story, with her departure from Lincoln Island and transformation working in the Cuttlefish Ho [...]

    19. David Edmonds says:

      To be honest, I was not nearly as impressed with this volume of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen as I was with the first two volumes. This is only the first part of a larger story, so hopefully it will improve as the story progresses.I think part of the problem is that Alan Moore was a little too literarily vague. I mean, I don't mind researching a character to find out more about them and to understand their place in the story, but when well more than half of the cast of the story needs to [...]

    20. Charlie says:

      I am going to say I was disappointed with this one. The third volume in the series, The Black Dossier, went completely off the rails as far as I'm concerned. So when I heard that 1910 was similar to the first two volumes, I was very excited. Unfortunately I can't say I enjoyed it as much.I didn't really find anyone in this incarnation of the league being all that extraordinary. Seriously. Other than Mina who really hasn't shown much growth since the story first started. Orlando is too campy. Car [...]

    21. Dave says:

      I'm withholding judgement on Volume 3 of "The League" until the rest of the issues are released. Were I to rate this book now, I'd have to give it only 3 out of 5 stars. I wasn't totally sold on the whole penny dreadful song and dance. I did thoroughly enjoy the art and story, though the book seems to suffer from it only being the first part of the third Volume. Normally with comics that wouldn't be a problem, but this is a stand alone story on it's own, set in an immensely rich world created by [...]

    22. Malapata says:

      Un volumen de relleno de principio a fin. Se limita a presentar a los personajes y a apuntar la trama que se desarrollará en los siguientes volúmenes de Century. Y eso siendo generosos. Los integrantes de esta nueva Liga no tienen ni de lejos el carisma de sus antecesores (ni siquiera Mina Murray, que repite). Además la trama es pobre bordeando lo inexistente, aún más después de leer los siguientes volúmenes y ver que se detiene en situaciones y personajes que no van a tener la menor impo [...]

    23. Nicholas Kaufmann says:

      Alan Moore is still a mad genius, even this far along in his ongoing League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series. The first in a three-part, decades-spanning adventure, 1910 is light on plot (it's all setup, basically) but still jam-packed with all the literary references and characters you've come to expect. Read it with Google nearby so you can look up all the names, especially the cast of literary magicians and occult detectives who show up or get name-checked, there are some great surprises the [...]

    24. Danijel says:

      Pristojno, no ni blizu tako dobro kao prvi LOEG

    25. Daniel says:

      Seriously, Moore should just co-write these books with Jess Nevins and include annotated footnotes in the graphic novels themselves

    26. Morgan says:

      A little slower then most Leagues, but kind of liked this one. More with Orlando (my favorite character) and liked the Penny Opera feel to it too. Liked the Alister Crowley reference as well.

    27. Vittorio Rainone says:

      Questo volume porta a compimento una saga già iniziata dalla Planeta, riportando anche il primo capitolo. Si narra dei Gentlemen in tre periodi nell'arco di un secolo. Nel 1910 il gruppo ha una forma simile alla compagine originale: ci sono Mina Murray, Orlando e Quatermain (che si fa passare per il figlio), dopo l'immortalità di recente acquisita. Li accompagnano il ladro Raffles e il cacciatore di fantasmi Carnacki. L'obiettivo è scongiurare un non meglio definito piano esoterico ordito da [...]

    28. stratospherus says:

      Uh From where to start? I was worried first when I started this how it'd turn out as each subsequent book of the LoeG is for a level worse than previous. And I started to worry about Alan Moore. His Neonomicon I read recently is utterly, utterly dreadful.And what awaits us in Century? Three familiar characters we've been introduced in BD and NTA from vol2; male-female Orlando, Mina Murray and her (their mutual lover) Alan Quatermaine, setting to stop the birth of Antichrist and in years of 1910, [...]

    29. Jack says:

      This fourth installment of the LOEG series is by far the most conceptually half-baked and narratively anticlimactic of the series. The elements are all good: Carnacki the Ghost Finder and A.J. Raffles are new additions to the League, a possible Jack the Ripper (a completely different theory than Moore explored in “From Hell”) and Oliver Haddo (a 1908 caricature of Aleister Crowley) should be great antagonists, and Mycroft Holmes and Captain Nemo’s daughter/would-be heir offer opportunities [...]

    30. Keen says:

      2.5 Stars!I read the previous instalments of “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” series, a couple of years back and had mixed feeling about them. Moore is obviously an outstanding talent, and I can appreciate what he and O’Neill are trying to do, and there are some great moments, but I personally don’t think that these stand up to some of his other excellent work elsewhere. Once again this is really nicely drawn with some fine colouring too. There is plenty of action, humour and horr [...]
