The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier - Alan Moore, Kevin O'Neill, Ray Zone Enjoyed this tremendously, as a dense lovely object (including the 3-d section), as a dense lovingly-allusive text (even when references to Bulldog Drummond or other bits of English pop arcana eluded this poor American boy's grasp), as a smart and engaging treatise on the uses and pleasures and dangers of pop mythology.

But go read this and this for really good reviews.
