League of Extraordinary Gentleman Vol.2 by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill

Forget the movie, if you haven't already. Writer Moore and penciler O'Neill take their cast of fictional 19th-century characters, including the Invisible Man, Mr. Hyde and Alan Quartermain and pit them against H.G. Well's invaders from Mars. It's pure entertainment that also involves topical themes of foreign threats, WMDs and gene-splicing.
