The apocalyptic climax of the third and most ambitious volume to contain the League's unfolding narrative, CENTURY: 2009 turns its scrutiny of the entire fictional landscape to the presently uproarious era as it hurtles to a staggering conclusion that even immortal champions may not survive. The eternal ambiguity Orlando is returned to an unrecognisable contemporary London and a collapsing world of moral, social and financial destitution. The intended antichrist is born, and even the most powerful eminences of the Blazing World have not been able to forestall his coming.
