    2. I liked it, but I felt left out and confused with all the British comics references that weren't explained. I applaud the editors' and contributors' efforts in attempting to help us lazy young Americans understand what was happening between the panels, but I just couldn't love this book like I wanted to.

    3. It's a sub-par League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Nice to see all the retro Comic references but the artwork is unappealing (not a patch on the splendid Kev O'Neill) and the whole thing has that 'thrown together after an idea at a party' feel. Disappointing.

    4. I got a copy of this from the library. Based on a plot by Alan Moore the book is written by his daughter and her husband. It's fairly standard comic book fare but quirky enough to be fun and interesting. The book takes all the heros from early British comics in the 60s and 70s and puts them all in the same world (actually prison) and the book focuses on a geek and one of their daughters breaking everyone out. What this book really illustrates is the difference between American superheros and the [...]

    5. The plot didn't blow me away, to say the least, and neither did the characters. I imagine that someone familiar with all the comic strips referenced by Moore might enjoy this a whole lot more, but I had to force myself to finish it.

    6. Maybe I need to be a middle-age Brit – who in his youth devoured mid-century comic books produced in the UK -- in order to fully enjoy this nostalgia-tinged “What Ever Happened to…?” retro-comic book epic.* The premise is clever enough: The daughter of one of England’s great comic book heroes goes in search of her father’s former colleagues – all of whom have been in hiding for the past several decades; hence the disbelief that they really exist outside of the printed four-color pa [...]

    7. Divertida e interesante revisitación de varios comics ingleses de mano de la flia Moore-Reppion. El dibujo en algunas partes parece contrastar con las ideas del guión pero es bastante expresivo y funciona bien la mayoría de las veces. Del guión en sí, lo que menos me convencieron fueron algunos diálogos, aunque quizás la culpa de eso lo tenga la traducción. Cuando lo relea -si puedo, en inglés-, seguro se gane una reseña más elaborada.

    8. Os fãs de banda desenhada costumam dividir as suas lealdades. Por um lado, olham para o golorioso formato comic, de origem americana, com as suas histórias em permanente continuidade mensal. Se bem que aparentemente limitados às histórias tipicamente adolescentes de super-heróis sempre em luta contra abomináveis ameaças, o comic é algo muito mais abrangente, que reúne uma série de experiências clássicas, objectos de culto a roçar o camp (ou então perfeitamente kitsch) e, nos últim [...]

    9. Despite Alan Moore's name being front and centre, you quickly discover that he is only responsible for "plotting" this graphic novel; the writing is provided by his daughter Leah and her husband John Reppion, and is nothing like as high quality as you'd expect from a book with Alan Moore's name on it. The characters (revivals of 60s comic staples) were mostly strangers to me too, aside from Faceache who I vaguely remember from Buster.

    10. An engrossing story giving a history of British comics.

    11. I had a hard time following this. A lot of the dialogue was oblique and full of portent, which was too obscure for me get. It was so very, very British, the dialogue that implies much and states little. The art also had an absence of segues that gave me a bit of trouble, too. One frame one character is making a whole bunch of references I don't get, the next frame some other barely-introduced character is talking about something apparently unrelated. I'm lost.The little history lesson on 60s and [...]

    12. nhwvejournal/904393ml[return][return]Albion is a British riff on the resurrection of old superheroes in today's world, being busted out of the Scottish castle in which they have been imprisoned since the government turned against them. It's generally good stuff, with some nice touches - how did Margaret Thatcher really survive the Brighton bomb? And one particularly nasty character grumbles, "The world's gone soft! See where your Teletubbies have led you?!"[return][return]It is supported by a go [...]

    13. This book is not only a very different sort of shared universe. It's a sort of gateway drug for British comics. After reading this marvelous tale of obscure (here in the U. S.) British comic strip characters, I was hungry for more. Not only would I love to read their earlier adventures, but I'd love to see new stories featuring them. The section of classic strips at the end of the book only served to inflame that hunger.Besides the theme of nostalgia (even though this was my introduction to all [...]

    14. Although this book was a tribute to old and rather obscure British comics it was very accessible to readers unfamiliar with those comics. While sometimes the action was a bit hard to follow, the text was great. The story was a lot of fun, the plot was clear, and the resolution was satisfactory. I'd like to see more of these characters, but only if they are handled as well as they were in this volume.My only negative comment is that although the editor and Neil Gaiman both referenced that these c [...]

    15. The story revolves around a modern-day Britain where comic book characters have turned out to really exist. The British public had been largely unaware of their existence throughout the '60s and '70s, thinking them to be fictional. Most of the IPC heroes are now interred within an asylum, and the daughter of one of the inmates is determined to reveal their existence to the larger public.Starts off intriguingly, but ultimately disappointing.

    16. Good stuff. You can't mess with Alan Moore. He wrote this with his daughter, it is a new story about all these old British comic characters. Neil Gaiman wrote the intro and he was psyched all these obscure characters from British comics were back. Even not knowing the back history of the characters it was a good comic.

    17. I am guessing this was meant for an audience that isn't me. I am unfamiliar with the characters so their turning out to be real, imprisoned and ultimately unleashed on the world means nothing to me. Worse than that, the story seems so rushed and so densely packed it just didn't move me at all. Artwork was terrific though.

    18. Kind of sad proof that not ever propety nor obscure character can be resucitated; either through reconstruction and deconstruction (All DC has done well with their Hanna Barbera properties lately). This is a Penny Dreadful's League of Extrordinary Gentlemen. It's plotted by Moore and written by Leah Moore and John Reppion. If I'm not mistaken, this may have been their first comic.

    19. This Yank hearts British comics. This was the most fun I've had reading a comic book in some time! Even without any familiarity with the characters revived for this series, Alan Moore's storytelling was top notch and made the action extremely enjoyable.

    20. An half baked attempt at aping the brilliant League of Extraordinary Gentlemen books. Leah Moore and John Reppion clearly don't have Alan Moore's easy facility with characterisation and pacing. Had its moments but mainly a disappointment, I'm afraid.

    21. Enjoyable Romp, but I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more if I could have played "spot the reference" like I can in a book Like "Top 10" or "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." But I don't have the background in British comic book characters.

    22. Not bad, but as I'm not real familiar with a lot of these characters it didn't make as big an impression on me as LoEG.Still a fun read with some wonderfully bizarre characters. Shame Moore didn't have a chance to do more with them .

    23. This is a rich, vivid story by Leah and Alan Moore, with absolutely exquisite art throughout (which regularly changes styles, I may add). The only problem, and it's a big one, is that it's so mired in the history of British comics that if you are going into this blind, you won't get anything.

    27. Too short for my taste, has a nice story but could've been a bit more developed. The art is also not that good.

    29. This is to kids comics of my generation what LOEG is to Victorian/Edwardian fiction. Strangely nostalgic but new. Could Archie take Ironman in a fight? No, probably not
