League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century: 2009 cover and preview Up

Cover, which isn't really as interesting as the previous ones, though that's just my opinion.


Some panels, which include references to Lost, Judge Dredd and Dan Dare behind the cut,

Hopefully Moore won't resort to using women getting molested again as a plot device, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. See, the thing is that I don't not like the LoEG series, and I get the reason for some of the problematic content (the first volume satirises Victorian racism and sexism, for example), but just using the same stuff over and over for shock value is... cheap.

I didn't really say anything about Moore's work encouraging other people's actions, though; I was talking about what it possibly suggested about him.

(Although it's perhaps worth noting that ripping someone's arms off isn't exactly something within the physically possible for most people, whereas rape and sexual assault kind of are; they're not quite the same, is all I'm saying. And that particular example might still suggest what Geoff Johns would like to do to people who really piss him off if he could, however...)
