A League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen reboot is coming to Hulu
The 2003 movie has always been a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine.
I loved watching Sean Connery in the movie as Allan Quatermain and even though I know it wasn’t a very good movie, it holds a special place in my heart.
I used to watch the film a lot as a kid.
The original comic featured a sort of a Justice League of literary heroes from Victorian England.
It would cover books such as Dracula, Sherlock Holmes and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea.
The comic’s initial team featured Mina Murray, Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, Dr. Jekyll, and The Invisible Man.
They all had to go up against Fu Manchu, Professor Moriarty and aliens from H. G. Wells’ War of the Worlds.
The first two volumes of the comic were published by DC Comics starting in 1999.
However, Alan Moore ended up taking the series to indie publishers.
This was due to Moore’s rather difficult relationship with DC Comics.
The comics’ last storyline was wrapped up in 2019.
