In a world where all the fictions ever written coalesce to a mosaic of history, it's 1975. Janni Dakkar, pirate queen of Lincoln Island and head of the fabled Nemo family, is 80 years old and reportedly in psychological ill health. Pursuing shadows from her past or her imagination, she embarks on what may be a final voyage down the vastness of the Amazon, a last attempt to put to rest the spectres of her blood-drenched past. In River of Ghosts, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill steer their fifty-year long Nemo trilogy to its remarkable conclusion.

From The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen... Sixteen years ago, notorious science-brigand Janni Nemo journeyed into the frozen reaches of Antarctica to resolve her father's weighty legacy in a storm of madness and loss, barely escaping with her Nautilus and her life. Now it is 1941, and with her daughter strategically married into the family of aerial warlord Jean Robur, Janni's raiders have only limited contact with the military might of the clownish German-Tomanian dictator Adenoid Hynkel. But when the pirate queen learns that her loved ones are held hostage in the nightmarish Berlin, she has no choice save to intervene directly, travelling with her ageing lover Broad Arrow Jack into the belly of the beastly metropolis. Within that alienated city await monsters, criminals and legends, including the remaining vestiges of Germany's notorious •Twilight Heroes', a dark Teutonic counterpart to Mina Murray's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And waiting at the far end of this gauntlet of alarming adversaries there is something much, much worse. Continuing in the thrilling tradition of Heart of Ice, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill rampage through twentieth-century culture in a blazing new adventure, set in a city of totalitarian shadows and mechanical nightmares. Cultures clash and lives are lost in the explosive collision of four unforgettable women, lost in the black and bloody alleyways where thrive THE ROSES OF BERLIN.

This epic poem recounts the history of same-sex love, revealing a hidden side of Western culture through the lives of its greatest artists. Sappho, Michelangelo, Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Oscar Wilde, and many others are woven into this rich, visceral piece. Originally written fourteen years ago, The Mirror of Love sprang from Moore's activist heart as a reaction to Britain's controversial anti-gay law, Clause 28. In the past, Mirror has been translated into both a comic book and a stage production, but Top Shelf presents it as it was meant to be, a hardcover book illustrated with over forty full-color photographs from acclaimed artist Jose Villarrubia. Included in the 128-page special edition is an essay about the poem and its previous incarnations, an index of characters and places, a selection of classic poems quoted in the text, and a bibliography.

"Jess Fink has the ability to let you into her life through these comics while hitting those nerves you know all too well yourself. This is her story; the joys, awkwardness, beauty, and undeniable humor. But in moments, we've been there too. It's funny, brave and moving, and overall, in a medium where many selfish, navel-gazing memoirs are to be found, We Can Fix It is the opposite. It's a gift." -- Kate Beaton At long last -- the wacky, charming, and deceptively deep time-travel memoir from the author of CHESTER 5000: Jess Fink's WE CAN FIX IT!

Join Jess as she travels back in time to share her wisdom with her naive younger self, stand up to bullies who terrorized her child self, and teach her horny teenage self a thing or two. What begins as a raunchy adventure in teen wish fulfillment grows into a thoughtful story about memory, regret, and growing up. One time machine, one frustrated girl, one sexy futuristic jumpsuit...infinite possibilities.
