MEET D.R. AND QUINCH, TWO ALIEN DROP-OUTS FROM A FAR-FLUNG PLANET. They're on a mission to have fun and cause the most amount of chaos possible. Destroying the earth is but one trick on their wide repertoire, which also includes double-crossing, war-mongering, heart-breaking and making a hit Hollywood movie!
This comedy of inter-galactic proportions is brought to you by comic book supremo Alan Moore (V for Vendetta) and respected artist Alan Davis (Uncanny X-Men).
Also collected here for the first time are all of D.R. And Quinch's Incredibly Excrutiating Agony Pages by Jamie Delano and Alan Davis.

This is The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume Three: Century, collecting together the previously published Century: 1910, Century: 1969 and Century: 2009 in a single thrilling volume.
The nineteenth century, expiring with a flourish of Moriarty and Martians, has left the division of Military Intelligence commanded by Mina Murray in a state of disrepair. While she and her lover Allan Quatermain have achieved a measure of eternal youth, recruiting new talents such as the trans-gendered immortal Orlando, the ghost-finder Thomas Carnacki and the gentleman thief A.J. Raffles to replace their deceased or missing colleagues, former associate Captain Nemo has retired to his Pacific pirate island to decline in surly isolation.
Now it is the early years of a new and unfamiliar century, and forces are emerging that appear to promise ruin for the Murray group, the nation and indeed the world, even were it to take a hundred years for this apocalyptic threat to come to its disastrous fruition.
From the occult parlours and crime-haunted wharfs of 1910, through the criminal, mystical and psychedelic underworlds of 1969 to the financially and culturally desolated streets of 2009, the disintegrating remnants of Miss Murray and her League must combat not only the hidden hand of their undying adversary, but also the ethical and psychological collapse accompanying this new era.
And a lot of things can happen in a CENTURY.
“Splendid fun.” – The Guardian

In his first-ever short story collection, which spans forty years of work and features many never-before-published pieces, Alan Moore presents a series of wildly different and equally unforgettable characters who discover - and in some cases even make and unmake - the various uncharted parts of existence.
In 'A Hypothetical Lizard', two concubines in a brothel for sorcerers fall in love with tragic ramifications. In 'Not Even Legend', a paranormal study group is infiltrated by one of the otherworldly beings they seek to investigate. In 'Illuminations', a nostalgic older man decides to visit a seaside resort from his youth and finds the past all too close at hand. And in the monumental novella 'What We Can Know About Thunderman', which charts the surreal and Kafkaesque history of the comics industry over the last seventy-five years through several sometimes-naive and sometimes-maniacal people rising and falling on its career ladders, Moore reveals the dark, beating heart of the superhero business.
From ghosts and otherworldly creatures to the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and theoretical Boltzmann brains fashioning the universe at the big bang, Illuminations is exactly that - a series of bright, startling tales from a contemporary legend that reveal the full power of imagination and magic.
Cinco asesinatos sin resolver. Dos grandes maestros de la historia del cómic. Una conspiración intrincada, una metrópolis al borde del siglo XX y un destripador sangriento que sumerge a Londres en la era del horror contemporáneo.
La exitosísima y premiada From Hell, citada a menudo como una de las mejores novelas gráficas de todos los tiempos, alcanza nuevas e inquietantes dimensiones en From Hell: Master Edition, realzada por los tonos impresionistas del propio Eddie Campbell.
La experiencia de From Hell como nunca antes se había visto:
¡Totalmente restaurada y a pleno color por primera vez!
