This came out in March, but I just received some copies. Many people seem to think that Alan Moore has given up writing comics completely, but it’s not so. The “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” series continues with three books about the daughter of the original Captain Nemo from Jules Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” and “Mysterious Island.” The first, NEMO: HEART OF ICE came out in 2013. It details an expedition to Antarctica that involves a number of lost civilizations and ancient horrors. We’re working on the third now, which will be out next year. ROSES OF BERLIN takes place mostly in World War Two Germany and is full of Nazi-fighting action. I’m proud to be a part of it, including the design work I did on the cover, under Kevin O’Neill’s direction and layouts. The series is available from the publishers Top Shelf (in America) and Knockabout (in England). And if you missed the previous series, CENTURY, you’ll find advertisements there for the collected hardcover edition, cover below, due out in July. Lots of great reading!
