Cover To Alan Moore's LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMAN 1969 is Groovy

Next year sees the second volume of Century, the three volume League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen series by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill. And in this chapter, published by Top Shelf and Knockabout, our Victorian pulp heroes hit the sixties.

The solicitation reads:
CHAPTER TWO takes place almost sixty years later in the psychedelic daze of Swinging London during 1968, a place where Tadukic Acid Diethylamide 26 is the drug of choice, and where different underworlds are starting to overlap dangerously to an accompaniment of sit-ins and sitars. The vicious gangster bosses of London’s East End find themselves brought into contact with a counter-culture underground of mystical and medicated flower-children, or amoral pop-stars on the edge of psychological disintegration and developing a taste for Satanism. Alerted to a threat concerning the same magic order that she and her colleagues were investigating during 1910, a thoroughly modern Mina Murray and her dwindling league of comrades attempt to navigate the perilous rapids of London’s hippy and criminal subculture, as well as the twilight world of its occultists. Starting to buckle from the pressures of the twentieth century and the weight of their own endless lives, Mina and her companions must nevertheless prevent the making of a Moonchild that might well turn out to be the antichrist.
Are you excited for the next chapter to Alan Moore's prolific series?  The set of this series looks more fun than the early 1900s of the last arc.
