"Century: 2009's neat references are splendid fun, and this is a clever, passionate – and pleasingly open-ended – finale to a fine series." -- The Guardian
"Weaving together Britain's mythic dreamtime into one glorious creative tapestry, this latest percipient adventure is a thrilling ride." -- The Independent
"The completed Century sits happily alongside the previous League volumes as arguably one of the greatest comics of all time... Not content with being technically brilliant, the creative team manages to find new ways to use the comics form... This is the first time that the comic has been able to illustrate its wider point so effectively: that stories change the world." -- Comic Book Resources
In CHAPTER THREE, the narrative draws to its cataclysmic close in London 2009. The magical child whose ominous coming has been foretold for the past hundred years has now been born and has grown up to claim his dreadful heritage. His promised aeon of unending terror can commence, the world can now be ended starting with North London, and there is no League, extraordinary or otherwise, that now stands in his way. The bitter, intractable war of attrition in Q'umar crawls bloodily to its fifth year, away in Kashmir a Sikh terrorist with a now-nuclear-armed submarine wages a holy war against Islam that might push the whole world into atomic holocaust, and in a London mental institution there's a patient who insists that she has all the answers. -- an 80-page full-color softcover graphic novel, 6.625" x 10.125", Diamond: APR12-1232
