Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Von allen bisher erschienenen Bänden über die Welt der Liga der außergewöhnlichen Gentlemen erscheint mir dieser hier der schwächste zu sein. Und das gerade bei einem Thema, das mir selbst besonders nahe ist, denn es geht um Berlin, um dessen kulturell so produktive Zeit zwischen den beiden Weltkriegen, und um deren Ende im Faschismus. Möglicherweise ist es aber gerade auch diese Nähe zum Thema dieses Bandes, die zu meiner fehlenden Begeisterung beiträgt.

Bereits "Nemo: Herz aus Eis" hatte eine - verglichen mit vorangegangenen Bänden - recht einfache Geschichte, es ging um eeine Abenteuerreise an das Ende der Welt. Mir kam diese Vereinfachung eher entgegen, da insbesondere "Das Schwarze Dossier" schon etwas zu komplex geraten war. Die "Roses of Berlin" sind aber noch etwas einfacher geraten. Gut gegen Böse, und Böse wehrt sich noch nicht einmal sehr lange, worauf das Gute dann auch noch etwas Böse sein darf, so kann man das Muster zusammenfassen. Und auch die geschriebene Kurzgeschichte zum Schluss ist hier einfacher, durchschaubarer geraten.

Dr. Caligari und Mabuse tauchen hier auf. Und dann natürlich allerlei Gestalten aus Metropolis, wobei dieser Film dann auch die Vorlage für die durchaus gelungene, optische Gestaltung des Bandes liefert. Hynkel taucht wieder auf, doch leider kommt der Weltkrieg, den es 1941 doch im Hintergrund geben sollte, etwas zu kurz. Mit Ayesha gibt es eine alte Bekannte in der Geschichte. Und es gibt das Thema Liebe, genauer gesagt wird ein erneutes Mal von deren Ende erzählt. Aber die Geschichte geht natürlich dennoch weiter.

1941: Adenoid Hynkel und seine Verbündeten sind dabei das Anlitz Europas nachhaltig zu verändern, genau wie andere mehr oder minder totalitär auftretende europäische Herrscher. Prinzessin Janni Dakkar, nun die Kapitänin der Nautilus, hält sich und ihre Besatzung lange aus den Auseinandersetzungen heraus, bis schließlich eine Meldung eintrifft, dass sich ihre Tochter Hira in deutscher Gefangenschaft befindet. Damit blasen die Piraten auf den Angriff auf Berlin.

Im Rahmen der Erzählwelt der "Außergewöhnlichen Gentlemen" ist dieser Band um die Tochter Nemos die in ein stark an "Metropolis" erinnerndes Berlin kommt um dort auf allerlei Abscheulichkeiten zu stoßen überaus passend. Zeichnerisch hat sich gegenüber "Heart of Ice" nicht wirklich viel getan, aber die Geschichte ist interessant und auch der Anschlusstext zur Feier des 70. Geburtstags Prinzessin Dakkars ist "mehr des Gleichen" und damit das, was Fans dieser Mooreschen Nebenwelt wollen.

Der Nachfolgeband von Heart of Ice.
Man nehme einbißchen Metopolis und viel mehr 1945 und mische dieses zu einem
ziemlichen Handlungsschrott zusammen.
Manche Stories sollten einfach nicht gemacht werden, diese gehört dazu.

Hope Springs Eternal That The League Can Regain Glory 24. März 2014
Von E. David Swan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
No writer has brought me more reading pleasure than Alan Moore and please note, I didn't say COMIC BOOK writer. I own a total of three DC Absolute editions and two of them are Alan Moore's and it would have been three out of four except I missed my window of opportunity on The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Absolute Edition. Moore is my favorite writer period but it has been a long time since I have given any new material from him five stars. Starting with The League of Extraordinary Gentleman the Black Dossier, continuing through the three Century books and now the two Nemo it's been a bumpy ride. Moore has inspired me to read dozens of classic books based on the characters he's included in his stories. The problem is the more I find out about these characters the more problems develop and none more than Janni Nemo.

I have complained in the past that Moore demands a TON from the reader. The original two volumes were awesome but they included well known characters and even in those cases Moore took the time to establish who they were. The problem is that in later books Moore uses increasingly obscure characters with little to no background. If a reader read "Nemo: Heart of Ice" and had never heard of Tom Swift Jr. they would just assume he was a villain in literature. Except he isn't. He is a classic unimpeachable good guy. I understand that Moore needs to make adjustment to weave all these disparate characters together but Janni Nemo should never exist. If you read Jules Verne's "The Mysterious Island" it is established that the death of his family is the motivating factor in Captain Nemo's life. Everything he did including building the Nautilus was a result of his familial loss. The existence of Janni destroys Nemo's raison d'etre. I've done my homework on trying to understand better the characters Moore has used but now it leads me to question how much Alan Moore himself knows about these characters.

So if I put aside all my issues with the usage of characters is this a well written book? Alan Moore remains the greatest comic writer ever and the scripting is excellent it's in the plot where these books have been underwhelming. Janni and Broad Arrow Jack raid a MASSIVE futuristic underwater Nazi base filled with Nazi sleep commandos (ok, that's officially cool). The base is being run by the female robot from Metropolis and Princess Ayesha from the previous book, `Heart of Ice'. There are a whole new group of characters for me to look up including Dr. Mabuse, Robur the Conqueror, Dr. Caligari, Dr. Rotwang and Adenoid Hynkel. Besides Robur these are all characters from cinema rather than literature with Hynkel being a humorous tweak from Moore (look the name up on Wikipedia). I probably enjoyed this book more than the previous four books (and way more than Black Dossier) but this might be due to lowered expectations. Heart of Ice was mostly one long chase and this book is pretty much just a 56 page cat and mouse game between Janni Nemo and the team of Ayesha and the Metropolis Robot.

This book is not going to break its way into my top 20 favorite Alan Moore books but it was an enjoyable read. What I enjoy most about this series is finding characters and then looking them up on Wikipedia to find out more. As I said I've read a ton of books including `The Steam Man of the Prairies', Tom Swift, Jules Verne and tons of others so in that respect this series has inspired me to become more literate. I just hope that this series is not Moore's Swan Song because he certainly has demonstrated far more writing prowess in the past than what is displayed here. Let me add that love it or hate it this is a lovingly crafted book that even includes threaded binding which is a very nice touch.

Addendum: Inspired by this book I went and watched The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, which is considered one of the great films of the silent era. It did add somewhat to my enjoyment of the book. The one page splash that introduces Caligari and the "Sleep Soldiers" uses the same odd angles as the film which was considered a very influential film of German Expressionism. That was a great artistic nod that few people would notice. The Sleep Soldiers are a reference to Cesare the Somnambulist that Caligari used as a killer. On the other hand Caligari only acquired Cesare by chance and showed no ability to actually CREATE a sleeping killer. The look of Caligari differs from the film quite a bit which is weird because that would seem like a slam dunk. Also, the twist ending of `The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari' pretty much makes his appearance here quite impossible. Still, it was fun researching the character.

Addendum 2: I watched Metropolis, The Great Dictator and Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler. The biggest surprise was how much I loved the Dr. Mabuse film. As someone with a very short attention span I cannot believe how much I enjoyed a four and a half hour silent film from 1922 Germany but it really was amazing. Metropolis and Dr. Mabuse were both directed by Fritz Lang but I was far more impressed by Mabuse. It's clear that Moore is not sticking to the source material. For instance in this book Dr. Rotwang designed Metropolis but there is no indication in the movie that this is so. Also, the Moloch Machine didn't actually exist and was a hallucination of the main character in the film. Moore also creates a problem by having Adenoid Hynkel's Tomainia in the same universe as Adolph Hitler and Germany since Hynkel and Tomainia were clearly intended to BE Hitler and Germany.

Addendum 3: I read Jules Verne's Robur the Conqueror and The Master of the World. Moore seems to have gotten Robur's smallish `Terror' mixed up with the much larger `Albatross'. The `Terror' was only about 30 feet long. One could claim that this was a new LARGER `Terror' except that Robur in this book is described as young and the `Terror' wasn't created until he was older. This `Terror' is significantly larger than even the 100 foot `Albatross' which itself had no weapons of defense. Technologically wise Moore's `Terror' is far beyond anything Verne wrote about while Robur himself comes off as much weaker than the literary character.

Pointless 27. April 2014
Von Sam Quixote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I should’ve stopped after the first page which warned me this book was another episode in Alan Moore’s Journey Up His Own Backside because the first page is written entirely in German. Untranslated German. And not just the odd word like “ja” or “guten tag”, but packed panels of dialogue which non-German readers - ie. most people picking up this ENGLISH version of the book - won’t be able read unless they pull out their English/German dictionaries or type all the dialogue into Google Translate - none of which I did because why should I? That’s not isolated to the opening page either, several pages throughout this brief book have lots of untranslated German dialogue.

So it’s 1941 and Janni’s 15 year old daughter’s blimp has been shot down over Germany and she and her husband (who, by the way, looks to be in his late 30s) have been taken prisoner. Janni and her husband journey deep into the underground heart of the weirdly mechanised German regime to rescue them.

I’ve read all three parts of the Nemo series and have to wonder what the point of it all is. Book 1 - Janni leaves her dad to work in a brothel, then decides to burn half of London; Book 2 - Janni goes to Antarctica where Moore writes a terrible parody of HP Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness; Book 3 - Moore gets Kevin O’Neill to draw boobs amidst lots of imagery taken from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. Why? And why is the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen still continuing with a character who wasn’t even in the League?!

Janni’s not a particularly interesting character - she’s monotone, competent, and more-or-less personality free. Her story has been unnecessary and, for the most part, unimaginative. All Moore seems to be doing is referencing other, better works of art in his increasingly pointless comics, but so what - who reads a book for the references over the story? This entire book - which, at roughly 50 pages, is more of an extended single issue than a book - is a straightforward action montage of characters firing guns or sword-fighting with explosions going on in the background. That’s it?!

I read this because, as some of you may know, Moore is a very vocal critic of contemporary comics and I wanted to see what his comics were like - you know, see how to do comics “right”. And what did I read? Contrived scenes with forgettable action, trite dialogue (those that I could read that is), stiff, two-dimensional characters, and an unengaging, paper-thin “story”.

Alan, I think you need to start taking a look at your own work before you blanket-assess the rest of the comics world with your uninformed, derogatory opinions.

Really Like The Janni Character - But Kind of Frustrated All The Same 7. August 2014
Von Talvi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've greatly enjoyed the character of Janni - the daughter of Captain Nemo and the terrible burden she bears as a result of that legacy. In these three books featuring her, she's stormed her way through all kinds of era references, From Mountains of Madness to going up against H. Rider Haggard's Ayesha. But this latest in the series is a bit of an exception - very short even by standards of the previous books and with large chunks of untranslated German or French. I was left wondering at this point if Alan Moore was really interested in telling a story or was so obsessed with his readers/critics that he's too busy devising ways to flip them off.

Story: Janni's daughter and son in law have been captured by Nazi Germany. Along with husband Jack, she will infiltrate a fantastical underground lair in the search for her daughter. But she may no longer be alive and the whole situation could very well be a trap.

Janni, as a character, is a realist - one of the worst personality traits to befall a character in an Alan Moore book (e.g., Mina Harker). It means life will constantly spit on her in order to make the point that life kind of sucks and is unfair. The happiest an Alan Moore character can get is to be completely deluded or utterly self centered. I can't fault any of Moore's books for their strong heroines but ultimately it tends to mean we're going to have to watch the physical and emotional torture of Janni Dakkar. A lot.

I think what I most enjoy in the League stories are the constant cultural references. In Roses of Berlin, it's German (and some American) cinema. Drawing mostly upon Fritz Lang's Metropolis, but also liberally sprinkling in German 1920s horror such as the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Dr. Mabuse and Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator, it's always fascinating to see how Moore will use these references.

As well, I didn't love Kevin O'Neill's angular art initially but I'd really grown to love it by the second League book. He definitely has such a distinct style that still manages to translate emotional content. Janni has aged through the three books perfectly - I did believe we were looking at a 40ish woman in the Roses of Berlin.

Why three stars? These books are getting shorter and shorter. And now we have the untranslated languages in there as well (might as well make the next book with Sanskrit to really annoy readers who can't just Google translate as easily). I wish Moore would be less concerned with reactionary tactics/obsession with his readership/critics in his books and just stick with the story.

So while I enjoyed The Roses of Berlin, especially since it is very much a story about strong women, I was also left feeling that there was so much more to the story that was untold or untranslated.

A great romp through WWII Berlin 16. April 2014
Von Thomas Morrison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've really enjoyed the latest installments of the League and this one is no different. I'm continually surprised by Moore's ability to reinvent and keep things fresh. After every League book I ask myself "what more can he possibly do?" and he always seems to find cool new references to mine.

This time Moore goes to 1941 Germany though rather than Hitler being in power we have Chaplin's great dictator, Adenoid Hynkel. Moore has also brought on board the great wealth of expressionist German cinema with characters like Dr. Caligari, Dr. Mabuse and the robot Maria from Metropolis.

The story revolves around Janni Dakkar, (Nemo's daughter and the subject of Heart of Ice) and Broad Arrow Jack having to go into Hynker's Tomania (from Charley Chaplin’s the Great Dictator) in order to save their daughter. The story is full of twists and turns but the real fun is beholding O'Neill's spectacular views of Hynker's Tomania by way of Rotwang's Metropolis. O'Neill gives us one spectacular shot of the city after another while Janni and Jack run from the terrifying Maria and search for their daughter.

The real joy of this book is to see Moore's years of experience subtly weave this tale full of clever references. It's fun to read a sentence that contains a strange reference you just know is full of meaning and potential. Great writers are lucky to get 10 years of producing great works but as Moore has always done, he has surprised me once again by staying relevant and producing another great work. I wouldn't say that this is one of Moore's best, but I would say that it is a highly entertaining work and one worth buying and enjoying. And what more can you ask for?

Too Much German 28. März 2014
Von J. A. Sanderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have enjoyed all the League of Gentlemen volumes, especially Heart of Ice. The Roses of Berlin was very frustrating to me because there was so much dialogue in German with no translation, it just felt thoughtless. I appreciated the usual plethora of references, this time Metropolis, The Cabinet of Dr. Calgari, Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator,and others I am sure i missed. I was too frustrated by the German dialogues and the brevity of the whole piece. All the action attempts to substitute for the Moore's usual depth and breadth of story. This is the weakest installment.
