THE TEMPEST collected edition out now!

As a follow up to my previous post that reviewed the final issue of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's masterpiece I thought I'd do a brief review of the collected edition that's just arrived here at Blimey Mansion. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 4: The Tempest is a luxurious cloth bound hardback with dust jacket and it deserves a place of the bookshelves of any comics connoisseur. 

You'll be pleased to know that the book not only collects all the stories from the six part mini-series, but all the covers, features, and letters pages as well. They're all arranged in order, rather than lumping all the covers and extras at the back like some collections do, so it feels more like a bound edition of six complete comics, and is all the better for it. 

There are new bits too, which is a nice bonus, such as endpapers, a "This Book Belongs To..." page, and a brilliant new four page epilogue that had me laughing out loud. As this is Alan and Kevin's final journey into comics it seems appropriate that they'd leave us laughing.

And, yes, you get a free pair of 3-D Glasses for the 3-D sequences in the book. 

This is a chunky book, well produced by its creators and publishers. Treat yourselves or a loved one (or just a close mate, no funny business) to a copy this Christmas! Co-published by Top Shelf in the USA and Knockabout in the UK, you can order it directly from Knockabout's eBay shop here:
