Jess Nevins, that's who. This book will identify the literary source of Calejava and practically every other location mentioned here (there are a handful that he was unable to identify). The book also has interviews with League writer Alan Moore and League artist Kevin O'Neill. And if you bought either of Moore and Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen collections, then you owe it to yourself to get Jess' annotations and other other ruminations that can be found in this new book. 8 people found this helpful.

Hey, I have the second volume of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, so I had to go and read Jess Nevins' companion volume, right? I mean, LOEG II has even more obscure references than it's predecessor, so it's almost a necessity. Like Mr. Nevins' first book, this one has all the notes you'd need to explain the lush detail of LOEG. It also features interviews with LOEG creators Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill.

Also featuring a rare interview with and introduction by co-creator Alan Moore, this is one book that no League fan would dare miss! show more. Format Paperback 304 pages. Dimensions 152 x 228mm.

I love Jess Nevins's companions to the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I keep learning things I never noticed thanks to the references in this book. Any fan of LXG should pick up a copy. It can be a little bland at times, but still a good addition to any collection.

This is a reference book for The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 2. It helps the reader to identify the characters and references in the comic book. For example, it will tell you who John Carter and Gullivar Jones are, and will even identify all the different races of Martians and tell you what books they came from. Where this book comes in most handy is in regards to "The New Traveller's Almanac", which is a sort of travelogue about the League's world. The Almanac describes hundreds of fictional locations that exist in the League's world, very few of which the average reader will have heard of. Sure, everyone has heard of Lilliput, but who ever heard of Calejava? Jess Nevins, that's who. This book will identify the literary source of Calejava and practically every other location mentioned here (there are a handful that he was unable to identify). The book also has interviews with League writer Alan Moore and League artist Kevin O'Neill. This is an excellent reference book for fans of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Yet it is listed as such on Amazon. The story is fine, I'm looking specifically for Graphic Novels. This is not one.

If you bought the first one, make sure to get the second one too.

No one knows obscure Victoriana popular culture minutae like Jess Nevins. Except maybe Alan Moore, of course.

And if you bought either of Moore and Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen collections, then you owe it to yourself to get Jess' annotations and other other ruminations that can be found in this new book.
