Cover preview: The Tempest No.4

Continuing its theme of parodying old UK comic covers, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Tempest No.4 features this beauty satirising classic British humour comics. Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill are doing great work on this comic so don't miss it! 

Here's the solicitation info. Order it from your comic shop today!

Order No. OCT180733

(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 covers to volume 4 are truly epic.

I thought the TV21 pastiche was special but Minnie is truly outstanding. Can't wait to see no 5!

So the masthead is a reference to "Smash and Pow Incorporating Fantastic", the characters shown are based on Leo Baxendale's, and the speech bubbles look like Fleetway's typical style in the 1980s.

I think it's just a reference to British humour comics in general, James, rather than anything specific. IPC had their fair share of mergers too.
