NEMO: THE ROSES OF BERLIN (Alan Moore / Kevin O'Neil)

Le deuxième tome des aventures de Janni Nemo (Nemo: Heart of Ice) consacré à la vie de la fille du Capitaine Nemo (apparue pour la première fois dans La Ligue des Gentlemen Extraordinaires: Century 1910) s’intitulera The Roses of Berlin. Il sortira en fin d’année 2013 suivi par un troisième et dernier tome en 2014.

Quant à La Ligue des Gentlemen Extraordinaires, si le quatrième volume fera suite au précédent qui se déroulait en 2009, Alan Moore et Kevin O’Neil devraient laisser le présent et le futur de coté pour revenir sur le passé du groupe pour le cinquième.

Alan, tu vas trop vite pour moi, là…

Jim

Ouais, pour un mec qui devait se consacrer à la magie, tu nous en sort des succédanés de tes vieilles gloires Alan ( et pas Alen comme l’indique le titre du post, ou alors c’est pas le même, et ceci expliquerait cela?!)

C’est vrai que ça fait bizarre des sorties régulières. Après je reste assez content d’avoir ma dose de LOEG comme ça !

Voici la couverture de « Nemo: The Roses of Berlin » qui sortira en avril 2014:

[quote] “From The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen! Sixteen years ago, notorious science-brigand Janni Nemo journeyed into the frozen reaches of Antarctica to resolve her father’s weighty legacy in a storm of madness and loss, barely escaping with her Nautilus and her life. Now it is 1941, and with her daughter strategically married into the family of aerial warlord Jean Robur, Janni’s raiders have only limited contact with the military might of the clownish German-Tomanian dictator Adenoid Hynkel. But when the pirate queen learns that her loved ones are held hostage in the nightmarish Berlin, she has no choice save to intervene directly, travelling with her ageing lover Broad Arrow Jack into the belly of the beastly metropolis. Within that alienated city await monsters, criminals, and legends, including the remaining vestiges of Germany’s notorious ‘Twilight Heroes’, a dark Teutonic counterpart to Mina Murray’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And waiting at the far end of this gauntlet of alarming adversaries there is something much, much worse.”

“Continuing in the thrilling tradition of Heart of Ice, Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill rampage through twentieth-century culture in a blazing new adventure, set in a city of totalitarian shadows and mechanical nightmares. Cultures clash and lives are lost in the explosive collision of four unforgettable women, lost in the black and bloody alleyways where thrive The Roses of Berlin.”[/quote]

From The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen…

Sixteen years ago, notorious science-brigand Janni Nemo journeyed into the frozen reaches of Antarctica to resolve her father’s weighty legacy in a storm of madness and loss, barely escaping with her Nautilus and her life.

Now it is 1941, and with her daughter strategically married into the family of aerial warlord Jean Robur, Janni’s raiders have only limited contact with the military might of the clownish German-Tomanian dictator Adenoid Hynkel. But when the pirate queen learns that her loved ones are held hostage in the nightmarish Berlin, she has no choice save to intervene directly, travelling with her ageing lover Broad Arrow Jack into the belly of the beastly metropolis. Within that alienated city await monsters, criminals and legends, including the remaining vestiges of Germany’s notorious ‘Twilight Heroes’, a dark Teutonic counterpart to Mina Murray’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And waiting at the far end of this gauntlet of alarming adversaries there is something much, much worse.

Continuing in the thrilling tradition of Heart of Ice, Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill rampage through twentieth-century culture in a blazing new adventure, set in a city of totalitarian shadows and mechanical nightmares. Cultures clash and lives are lost in the explosive collision of four unforgettable women, lost in the black and bloody alleyways where thrive THE ROSES OF BERLIN.

Parue ce mercredi en digital, cette nouvelle aventure de la Ligue se lit peut être un brin mieux que les précédentes, mais bon…sans vouloir faire le vieux grincheux on est encore loin des épisodes d’origine.

Une chronique un brin plus expansive, quelques extraits et de la musique pour aller avec par là:
