League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Tempest #4,
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer
(W) Alan Moore
(A/CA) Kevin O'Neill
Legendary swords clash atop the Paris Opera in 1913, while almost a century later a declining London witnesses assassination attempts, summit meetings in Haggerston Park, and the catastrophic return of a 1960s super-adventurer. Elsewhere, in the four-dimensional territories adjacent to the North Pole, a lost Shakespeare play sees its first and last performance, while Queen Gloriana's conjurer finally reveals the nature of his five-hundred-year-old game. Topping off an already heady mixture, this issue's classic Seven Stars reprint depicts our halcyon heroes as 'Captives of the Creepyverse,' another reason not to miss the unfolding of Moore and O'Neill's fulgurant finale in issue four of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume IV: The Tempest.

The overwhelming secret of the history of the League is out and nobody's happy. While we are given the big reveal here, it is almost over-shadowed by all the good fun that Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill are having here. I especially like the appearance of Jerry Cornelius. But it can't go without saying that the variety of art styles from comic strips to crazed 3-D. This has something for everyone! The pace has definately picked up on this title.
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
