"As the twentieth century approaches, there is a need for a new kind of champion - adventurers not bound by the chaste order that characterizes the stagnant Victorian Era. The enigmatic Campion Bond of British Intelligence has begun a recruiting mission, collecting a menagerie of individuals who can be of value to his superiors due to ... activities that have forced them beyond the pale. But as Allan Quartermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde, and Hawley Griffin, the Invisible Man discover, British Intelligence has plans for them that go far beyond mere spying. And if they survive their first test against the devil doctor of Limehouse, they'll have to battle an even stranger menace from the stars!"--Jacket p. .

Amazing. A superhero story set in the 1890's with characters from classic stories. Even Oliver Twist was represented.
Vol. 2 doet een War of the Worlds: begint begot op Mars met John Carter, doet dan de invasie van Wells over compleet met tripods en alles, en ‘t is aan de League om ertegen te vechten. Dr. Moreau komt er ook in voor en via hem ook (egad!) de personages van The Wind in the Willows.
