Moore, Alan; O'Neill, Kevin -- The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier

Graphic novel follows the conceit of the first two -- pulling together zillions of old story premises into a patchwork history -- but drawing from the early to mid-20th century. Orwell, Wolfe, pulp adventure, James Bond, and a vast array of others. Most of it was lost on me; I was a lot better at the original League books (Stoker, Stevenson, Verne) than on pre-war British comic strips. You may wish to seek out a hint book. The strikes that I did register were clever.
