The League of Extraordinary Gentlewomen Coming in February?

During their presentation at the Diamond Retailer Breakfast at New York Comic Con this morning, Titan Comics announced a new comic hitting stores in February billed as… The League of Extraordinary Gentlewomen?! No, it's not from Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill… so call it an unauthorized sequel to League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? Of course, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen itself was an unauthorized sequel for various public domain characters. But all of that is beside the point.

What Titan is really offering is a follow-up to Adler, Woman of Mystery, as the titular Irene Adler teams up with "famous female faces from science, history, and literature" to take on villain Moriarity.

From writer Lavie Tidhar and artist Paul McCaffrey, the first issue is set to hit stores in February.

Somebody ought to tell Lavie Tidhar though:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
