The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore

This graphic novel is a wonderful example of steampunk and the tried and true concept of fictional characters that actually exist (now what's the word for that again? I can never remember it...). If you have an interest in old fiction and a passing knowledge of Victoriana then this title is for you. It is very readable, though it is a dark story and the art reinforces this, but it was still nice to see Allan Quartermain out and about.
