The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is two comic book limited series written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Kevin O'Neill, published under the America's Best Comics imprint of DC Comics. As of 2005 it comprises twelve issues (published as two six-issue limited series, each collected as in graphic novel form, but forming a single ongoing story), as well as a film adaptation of the first six-issue limited series. There is also a prequel short story, "Allan and the Sundered Veil", included in the book form of the first limited series.
The story takes place in 1898 in a fictional world where all of the characters and events from Victorian era adventure literature actually existed. The world the characters inhabit is one far more technologically advanced than our own was in the same year. This setting allows Moore and O'Neill to insert 'in-jokes' and cameos from many of the great works of Victorian fiction, while also making contemporary references and jibes. (In issue 1, there is a half-finished bridge to link Britain and France, referencing problems constructing the real-world Channel Tunnel.)
