First Look: Nemo: The Roses of Berlin by Moore and O'Neill

As revealed on Amazon, continuing on with the follow-up to LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's will be out next April. Once again, Janni Nemo, daughter of Captain Nemo, stars, as she did in HEART OF ICE, and according to the Amazon page, here's the logline:

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, traveling with her aging 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.

THE ROSES OF BERLIN will be published simultaneously by Knockabout in the UK and Top Shelf in the US, and it's in the "LoEG" 56-page format.
