Additional Information

In a world where all the fictions ever written coalesce into a rich mosaic, it's 1975. Janni Dakkar, pirate queen of Lincoln Island and head of the fabled Nemo family, is eighty years old and beginning to display a tenuous grasp on reality. 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 blood-drenched spectres of old.

With allies and adversaries old and new, we accompany an ageing predator on her obsessive trek into the cultural landscape of a strange new continent, from the ruined city of Yu-Atlanchi to the fabulous plateau of Maple White Land. As the dark threads in her narrative are drawn into an inescapable web, Captain Nemo leads her hearse-black Nautilus in a desperate raid on horrors believed dead for decades.

Through the exotic spectacle of an imagined South America, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill steer their fifty-year-long Nemo trilogy to its remarkable conclusion, borne upon a RIVER OF GHOSTS.

I am a big fan of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's earlier work. The Nemo stories (Heart of Ice, Roses of Berlin, River of Ghosts) are a spinoff of their highly successful League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series. It supposes that the original Captain Nemo left his mantle to his daughter Janni (who appears peripherally in LOEG III Centuries).

This volume wraps up the Nemo saga with her going on one last adventure despite being quite old and frail - she remains the world's most dangerous grandmother. The plot basically ties up the loose ends from the earlier works and complete Janni's rivalry with the Immortal Ayesha. I am sad to say that the art work is OK and the story is sort of OK as well. The plot twists and reveals unfortunately having been anticipated by many other works. It is NOT a spoiler that there could be ex-Nazis (or their LOEG counterparts) hiding in South America. The only clever revelation is the re-introduction of one of the first super human heroes from... Read more
I’ve read and reviewed all the Century volumes and all the Nemo (Janni) volumes and this is the first time I did my homework PRIOR to reading the story. Using clues from the product description I read The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Face in the Abyss by A. Merritt and even Eight Hundred Leagues on the Amazon by Jules Verne just on the chance it might get a mention. Turns out what I should have done was watched ‘Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine’ and read an extremely obscure comic from 1902 called Hugo Hercules.

I have not given any of the Century or Nemo volumes rave reviews and that’s not going to change with this latest volume. River of Ghosts is very similar in plot to The Roses of Berlin, including hunting down the previously decapitated Princess Ayesha, except this story is not as good. I would love to say that the writer of Watchmen, Swamp Thing and Miracleman had re-found his mojo and produced a new masterpiece but there is... Read more
A fitting end (or what seems to be an end) to the Nemo saga, but no real fireworks. I've liked the Nemo stories well enough, but they weren't as fun, exciting and astonishing as the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series. If LoEG was "Happy Days," the Nemo stories would be "Joanie and Chachi." Enough to satiate the rabid fans of the series (like myself), but not anything that is going to really capture an audience. It's far more interesting to wade through the endless obscure references than it is to follow the story as presented.

Naturally, if Moore continues to do other spin-offs of the LoEG series, or continues with the Nemo stories, I'll pick them up. I will say that this one was a bit more entertaining than Roses of Berlin, which kind of fell flat.
