The bestselling League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series continues in this standalone graphic novel! It's 1925, fifteen long years since Janni Dakkar first tried to escape the legacy of her dying science-pirate father, only to accept her destiny as the new Nemo, captain of the legendary Nautilus. Now, tired of her unending spree of plunder and destruction, Janni launches a grand expedition to surpass her father's greatest failure- the exploration of Antarctica. Hot on her frozen trail are a trio of genius inventors, hired by an influential publishing tycoon to retrieve the plundered valuables of an African queen. It's a deadly race to the bottom of the world -- an uncharted land of wonder and horror where time is broken and the mountains bring madness. Jules Verne meets H.P. Lovecraft in the unforgettable final showdown, lost in the living, beating and appallingly inhuman HEART OF ICE.

Much as I enjoyed the art and the Lovecraftian Antarctic, this was not Alan Moore anywhere near his best. A lukewarm story with a tedious lead character (the daughter of Capt. Nemo) but with some nice flourishes. So all in all it's quite readable and viewable, but a bit disappointing storywise.

Admittedly, I'm not a fan of Alan Moore, let alone his various League of Extraordinary Gentlemen stories. I can see why the first one or two are acclaimed; they just don't personally suit me. Moore comes across as a very angry, misogynistic writer in his work. This one continues the League story, in the form of a daughter of Captain Zemo, but the book suffers tremendously from being a ponderously written story, in which it seems things are mentioned and dropped, that half the story is being told somewhere else. I don't know if Moore is crazy, drunk, or permanently strung out on drugs, but his work tends to read that way.
