The third volume detailing the exploits of Miss Wilhelmina Murray and her extraordinary colleagues, Century is a 216-page epic spanning almost 100 years. Chapter one is set against the backdrop of London in 1910, 12 years after the failed Martian invasion and nine years since England put a man on the moon. With Halley's Comet passing overhead, the nation prepares for the coronation of King George V, while far away on his South Atlantic island, the science-pirate Captain Nemo is dying.

I'm guessing this is some kind of hommage by Moore to Brecht and Weil's 3 Penny Opera, with the usual cast of characters drawn from the fiction of the day. It's good enough but not too satisfying. I wish the League were going in a different direction. It's like he is coming up with stories just to have the fictional characters, like Raffles or Carnacki, in them. It's OK but less than I'd hope for from Moore. Loving the art though.
