New ‘League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ Spinoff Book Coming In March

Nemo the Rose of Berlin
Top Shelf

Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s 2013 follow-up to their League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century series was a bit of a left turn for the series. Nemo: Heart of Ice was a spinoff featuring the new Captain Nemo traveling in the antarctic.

Top Shelf announced today that the team is continuing the spinoff series with a new world-spanning adventure for Janni Dakkar, this time in 1941 Germany (of sorts). The book, titled Nemo: The Roses of Berlin, will be out in March, and is available for pre-order now.

Here’s how Top Shelf’s solicitation describes the story:

Sixteen years ago, notorious science-brigand Janni Nemojourneyed into the frozen reaches of Antarctica to resolve her father’s weighty legacy in a storm of madness and loss, barely escaping with her Nautilus and her life.

 

Now it is 1941, and with her daughter strategically married into the family of aerial warlord Jean Robur, Janni’s raiders have only limited contact with the military might of the clownish German-Tomanian dictator Adenoid Hynkel. But when the pirate queen learns that her loved ones are held hostage in the nightmarish Berlin, she has no choice save to intervene directly, travelling with her ageing lover Broad Arrow Jack into the belly of the beastly metropolis. Within that alienated city await monsters, criminals and legends, including the remaining vestiges of Germany’s notorious ‘Twilight Heroes’, a dark Teutonic counterpart to Mina Murray’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And waiting at the far end of this gauntlet of alarming adversaries there is something much, much worse.

Nemo: The Roses of Berlin will be 56 pages and retail for around $15 online and at local comic shops.
