Hoo boy, this one’s a rough one. We’re talking about the Original Edgelord of Comics, Alan Moore and his second volume of The League Of Extraordinary Gentleman. This one gets a little intense, so strap yourself in. The Invisible Man, Mr. Hyde, Mina Harker, and Captain Nemo, Allan Quatermain, and some wagon driver all team up to fight aliens! What more could you want?
Comics covered: The League Of Extraordinary Gentleman Volume 2
On this episode, we’re talking Alan Moore, because this book? It ain’t quite Swamp Thing. Ryan has some real issues with this snake god worshiping writer. Sly finally learns the secret way in to the Vermilion City Pokemon gym. Phil’s secret hatred of a beloved book series is exposed. And Darryl rushes to the defense of the neglected monsters of the world.
As always, Edgelord August touches upon some serious themes, like severe violence, and violence against women. But this time, ESPECIALLY.
