Alan Moore's LOEG complete list needed!


#1

Is there a definitive list? I can never remember what I have and what I don’t, the two big six parters being easy enough, the black dossier and then is it two trilogies (century and the other one)?
Worried I’m missing something!!


#2

Yeah, it’s the century trilogy and then the Nemo trilogy, with Captain Nemo’s daughter.


#3

And obviously the Tempest is out in June.

#5

I love the Nemo books.


#6

I need to finsih reading the Nemo books, actually. I got them and Century in a Humble Bundle ages ago


#7

Read them in chronological order for maximum effect. I did that the other month and felt it really helped buff out the lack of story in Century.


#8

Whew. I’m up to date then. Kinda hoping I wasn’t so I had a new one to read, but NEXT MONTH!!!

#9

I only got Black Dossier last year, and rereading Century 1969 with the additional context of the Dossier made a lot more sense.


#10

Even then, Century loses points from me for being a simple story stretched needlessly through 99 years. The huge time skips make it lose a lot of momentum, and reading the Nemo Trilogy inside that timeline really helps give spurts of adventure and world building.


#11

Although all the books are interesting, the Black Dossier is less so, but it works (for me) as part of the whole thing (probably an obvious statement).

I like the Century books as well, but the ‘Nemo’ ones are (again, for me) as good as the first two arcs, while still being very distinctive.


#12

Yeah, they tell such a fun story - and playing around with Adenoid Hynkel to the full hilt of German/WWII-influenced storytelling is simply fantastic.

Only nitpick would have been if the German had actually been the Double-Deutsch that Chaplin spoke in the movie. But ah, well.


#13

Black Dossier was very much Moore saying “I’m really clever”, but with the advantage of his actually being clever, so it was always a fascinating experiment in form, even when the events in the individual stories were sometimes lacking.

And I can’t dislike a comic with a Newspeak Tijuana bible in it.

I’m slightly embarassed at how long it took me to recognise that reference, I think it was during Orlando’s life story that the penny dropped.


#14

I enjoy Black Dossier much more for what it represents than really as it stands. I love how boldly it tries to commandeer this intentionally patchwork world. I don’t think all of it works, but during my Chronological re-read I did remain rather impressed with how well Moore seeded stuff for future and past plots into those back-catalogs that Dossier was comprised of…

And I love Orlando’s story. I know the character was been “too much” for other fans I’ve spoken with but I just find them so entertaining. The “I AM A GOD! I NEVER DIE!” panel in Century: 2009 is a pinnacle of black humor while also being a weighty character moment.


#15

You get Jerusalem yet?
