I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

12. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol 2 by Alan Moore, illustrated by Kevin O'Neill

#12

Borrowed this from S as well, so it's not part of my library either.



Title: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol 2
Authors: Alan Moore, illustrated by Kevin O'Neill
Copyright: 2004
Pages: 228
Format: Paperback
Rating: 4.5/5 stars
Finished: 2-7-08

The second volume in Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's Victorian superhero drama, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, takes everything that made the first volume so enjoyable and made it better. Better villains, even more ingenious literary references and all the elements that make for a good sequel (sabotage, traitors, relationships that weren't there before, teases of things before and yet to come) all made for a great read.

I look forward to reading the future releases in this series.
