Jess Nevins' A BLAZING WORLD: THE UNOFFICIAL COMPANION TO THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, VOL II, which covers the best-selling second LOEG comic series, is available for preorder. With an introduction and interview with series co-creator Alan Moore, and commentary by and interview with co-creator Kevin O'Neill, the book features detailed panel-by-panel annotations and exhaustive coverage of the New Traveler's Almanac.
Alan Moore, in his introduction, had this to say about A BLAZING WORLD and the previous companion, HEROES & MONSTERS: "Without these two companion volumes, I doubt that the experience of the original work would be as complete, and I also doubt that Kevin and I would have felt sufficiently liberated or encourage to push the concept quite as far as we currently are doing."
A BLAZING WORLD will be solicited through Diamond Previews and available through retail outlets in September, but preorders will begin to ship from MonkeyBrain Books in August. The book, which retails for $15.95, is 304 pages long, with a cover by John Picacio.
