Abstract
This chapter analyses the specific way in which Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill in their graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen appropriate Victorian Gothic fiction into a highly elaborate metafictional crossover. Special focus is put on the role of hybridity and otherness, both in the Victorian source material and in the neo-Victorian re-writing, and on the critique of discourses of power.
