While it's nice to see that Alan Moore is following the plot of H.G. Wells novel so closely I do hope that he gives the League a bit more to do in this miniseries, as at the moment only the Invisible Man's traitorous actions have provided the only noticeable deviation from the original story. Now the issue does continue to build up the alien threat quite nicely, as the League look to be in way over their heads in this adventure, though it should be a blast to see Nemo's Nautilus square off against the alien invaders. This issue also has the Invisible Man making it quite clear to his teammates that he's no longer part of the team, as there's a decidedly unsettling sequence in this issue where he savagely beats Miss Murray. One also imagines he's still with her, as she & Quatermain go to see a scientist about a weapon they could use against the alien threat. Still, here's hoping the latter half of this miniseries allows the League to make their more strongly presence felt. Read Full Review
