Kevin O’Neill: An Extraordinary Century


Artist and co-creator Kevin O’Neill has been collaborating with Alan Moore since 1999 on the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, imagining an entire parallel universe and secret history, in which both famous and esoteric figures of fiction collide and become real. From their beginnings in Victorian fantasy, O’Neill and Moore have expanded their vision in their recently completed third volume, Century, to encompass the shifting worlds of 1910, 1969 and 2009.

O’Neill discusses this insanely ambitious, multi-referential trilogy and gives the first sneak peaks of next year’s League graphic novel, Heart of Ice, starring Captain Nemo’s daughter. He will be interviewed by acclaimed author Toby Litt, whose passion for comics has led him to writing his first script, published by DC Vertigo in the current issue of Ghosts.

Tickets: £6.00 online or on the door
Where: Foyles Bookshop, 3rd Floor Gallery, London WC2H 0EB
When: Thursday, November 8, 2012 6pm for 6.30pm start
