Forget this summer’s poorly reviewed Sean Connery flick–the original comic book by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neil is surprisingly smart, exciting, and literate. Mina Murray, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll, Captain Nemo and Allan Quatermain make up the team of Victorian heroes, meeting characters and slipping gracefully in and out settings from Rice Burroughs, Poe, Jules Verne, Emile Zola, Herman Melville, Arthur Conan Doyle etc etc.
