I actually kind of liked this one better than the first. ( )

I did see the movie years ago so I had a general knowledge of the characters which is pretty much all the two had in common. It was okay. I liked the art style but couldn't get into the story. ( )

Another watered down affair - the same motley of fav-characters crew is at work. However, this time their role to prevent the calamity remained limited. Instead new things happen - Allan Quatermain and Mina Murray indulge themselves. Hawley Griffin assaults Mina and pays for it with his life. The calamity this time is the invasion of the aliens - an interest but too oft-repeated concept - leaves me cold. Except those few vivid scarlet, colourful illustrations and three-legged apparitions - there is nothing else I remember about the story. At the end of the book, only two (or, three? I can't remember what happened to Nemo.) of the crew remain - indicating a thankful end of a forgettable series.

Just as good as the first. Maybe better. ( )
  AlCracka | Apr 2, 2013 |
Because they are in danger of losing an intergalactic war on Mars thanks in part to the efforts of two Englishmen, aliens launch an invasion on Earth focusing on England. The invasion is very akin to H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds , and there is a subplot taken from The Island of Dr. Moreau. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184023668X, Hardcover)

When alien invaders find they no longer have use for Mars, they set their many eyes upon a new blue-green prize - Earth. Soon, giant cylinders are falling across the planet, from which emerges an invasion force of unstoppable tripodal nightmares.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:29:14 -0400)

"The beleaguered London of 1898 has barely had time to assess the injuries of recent conflagrations in its lower class districts when a new threat arrives, falling from the upper atmosphere in gargantuan metal cylinders that leading scientists claim have travelled from the planet Mars! Once again a call goes out through the channels of British Military Intelligence to an improbable group of champions: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, Hawley Griffin, Dr. Henry Jekyll, Mr. Edward Hyde and Miss Mina Murray are those champions, and they must rise to the occasion of their country's dire need, risking life and limb and disregarding all sense of personal propriety. But will even their best efforts be enough against a threat so horrific that it nearly defies description?"--P.4 of cover… (more)
