League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1988

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1988

When war-hero-turned-handyman Kesuke Miyagi is found drained of blood, it becomes clear that the occult gang known as the Lost Boys are targeting the only individuals that can stop them from complete domination of America. It's the perfect case for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen--except that their government contact, Oscar Goldman, disbanded the team in 1979 after they defeated Mr. Han's army of the living dead.

Now, disgraced scientist Emmet Brown has to put together a new team to combat the growing threat of the Lost Boys and their leader, a newly resurrected vampire kingpin Tony Montana: Transportation specialist Jack Burton, ex-commando B.A. Baracus, tech wizard Angus MacGyver and the mysteriously powerful femme fatale known only as "Lisa." But will Brown be able to stop the Lost Boys before time runs out?

    I'm not really sure how much money I'd pay to see this actually happen, but if you round it to the nearest thousand dollars, I think the figure would be somewhere along "all of it".

    I stand by my statement to a friend, any LOEG comic from '88 that doesn't have Buckaroo Banzai is lacking.

    What about the 90's one, where The Dude, Vincent Vega, Slingblade Karl, Jay & Silent Bob and Mathilda from the Professional team up to stop Keyser Soze from taking over the Seattle music scene?

    Just like ThinkGeek, I'm beginning to really hate comic book april fool's jokes -- because they are all too often things I really would want to see.

    E.g.: http://my.spill.com/forum/topics/947994:Topic:434809

  9. Yes, it's a sad state of affairs when the April Fools joke actually looks like a really fun read.

    OK, I'm clearly being dumb here, but who is Lisa?

    It would be a heck of a lot better than LXG: Black Dossier, that's for sure.
