Cover for THE TEMPEST No.5 revealed

Top Shelf Productions have revealed the cover to issue 5 of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Tempest and it's another great homage to a classic British comic. This time, Kevin O'Neill has drawn a marvellous parody of Alan Class comics such as Creepy Worlds and Sinister Tales, the long-running British anthologies that reprinted vintage American comics in the 1960s and 1970s. Even the cover price is in shillings! That'll baffle anyone under 40 but what the heck? If the world's on a nose dive to oblivion, let's have a laugh!

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Tempest is a six issue mini-series by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill and is co-published by Top Shelf and Knockabout. 

Here's the official info. Place a standing order at your local comic shop today!

Ostensibly a cheap British reprint of pre-code American horror, this penultimate stop in Moore and O’Neill’s pyrotechnic farewell tour takes us from the tortured mind of artist Richard Dadd to a London swallowed by darkness; from a spectacular 3D struggle in the Blazing World to some jaw-dropping vengeance in Vauxhall and a conclusion that is out of this world. Meanwhile our Seven Stars finally come face to writhing mess with the monstrous menace of the ’Mass while providing origins for both Satin Astro and the Flash Avenger. 

Don’t miss the never-to-be-repeated cavalcade of wonders that is The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume IV, The Tempest. -- Issue #5 in a 6-issue mini-series, each issue 32 pages in (mostly) full colour, saddle stitched, 6 5/8” x 10 1/8” (standard comic-book size).

Co-Published by Top Shelf Productions (US) and Knockabout (UK).
