LOEG: The Tempest

No one else got this?  I was surprised to find it in FP this afternoon... need a reread of the Black Dossier I think before tackling this

Me too. I enjoyed this a lot, especially the references to British superheroes.

Picked up number one of six, all good stuff and the feeling that all the loose end getting pulled together.
Art, refs and salutes all in there, along with Mr M usual rape references  ::)

If anyone is interested here's Jason Nevin's annotations for the first issue http://www.jessnevins.com/annotations/tempestannotations.html

Can't say I recognize half of it, but I still liked it. A charming read. Really feels like Moore is set on finishing up the story.

Yeah,  enjoyed it.  Like the way it immediately ties directly into Black Dossier,  the Nemo books and of course Century, comic and text pieces both. No messing around here, Moore's heading straight for the finish line.

The Baxendale piece was good too,  can't believe I didn't know he'd stopped working for the Beano before I ever read it,  always assumed it was his stuff I'd started on.

That's quite a read - though too hot for me to stand up and fetch the comic itself from the next room!  Have to re-read the page again when I have issue in front of me.

So many Legion of Super-Hero references packed into page 2.

When I started work for DCT in the 90s, his name was spoken only in hushed tones. I remember one editorial veteran saying to me: "He left under a cloud."
