In a world where all the fictions ever written coalesce to a mosaic of history, it's 1975. Janni Dakkar, pirate queen of Lincoln Island and head of the fabled Nemo family, is eighty years old and reportedly in psychological ill health. Pursuing shadows from her past or her imagination, she embarks on what may be a final voyage down the vastness of the Amazon, a last attempt to put to rest the spectres of her blood-drenched past. In River of Ghosts, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill steer their fifty-year long Nemo trilogy to its remarkable conclusion.

Given these British creators, we can expect and find this story to be curious and somewhat complex for some readers. It is the third in a series of books about Nemo, a woman protagonist like no other. At the same time, it is a 52-page, one-sitting read, reminding of the old 25-cent annuals that once appeared in comic book series'. $15-$25 seems to be the going rate for this kind of graphic novel now, so I guess 25 cents is now 25 dollars. (Well truthfully, those annuals are worth much more than $25 now.) Back to the story, better than most of those old annuals, it is filled with over-the-top fantasy/science fiction culminating in frequent spectacular, 2-page splashes by Kevin O'Neill. I read it without reading the first two books in the series, and still enjoyed and followed it. Now I will seek out the first two books and read them. Thank God for public libraries.

Totally pointless. It reads as if Moore has been excessively using drugs for decades. Which, from all of his writing, pretty much feels like that must be the case.
