The League of Extraordinary Gentle — Men of la — Book Challenge (Vol. 1)

Share Button

The League of Extra­or­di­nary Gen­tle­men, writ­ten by Alan Moore and illus­trated by Kevin O'Neill, is a won­der­ful graphic novel which take sev­eral famous (and not-so-famous) lit­er­ary char­ac­ters and mix them up together for an adven­ture of a life­time. I thought it would be fun to read those clas­sic nov­els and then the graphic novel to see how the cre­ators man­aged to take such clas­sics and mix them up all together.

Hence I came up with…

DETAILS/RULES:

1. The goal is to read the clas­sic books and the graphic novel to see how they all tie together. No blog is needed, a review on Ama­zon, Goodreads, etc. is good enough.

2. What counts: books, eBooks, audio books

3. Crossovers from other read­ing chal­lenges count.

The books are (in no spe­cific order):
Drac­ula by Bram Stoker
Twenty Thou­sand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Steven­son
The Invis­i­ble Man by H.G. Wells
The First Men in the Moon by H.G. Wells
– Any Fu Manchu novel
– Any Sher­lock Holmes novel
– Any Allan Quater­main novel
– Any James Bond novel

and

- The League of Extra­or­di­nary Gen­tle­men graphic novel to tie it all together. (if you don't have it in your local library Ama­zon sells afford­able issues).
