As long time readers of this blog may know, I haven't been impressed by most of the work Alan Moore's done since 1993 (when he started writing for Image), and that includes the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. But in this interview (via Journalista), Moore states that The Black Dossier contains "a Jeeves and Wooster novella by P.G. Wodehouse." Now that sounds like it would be worth reading. (Though not worth buying the book for.)

Since I wrote the paragraph above, I learned that Moore's Wodehouse pastiche mixes Jeeves and Wooster with the Cthulhu mythos. Now I'm less excited. This combination has been done before, and not that well: it's hard enough to get Wodehouse right even without throwing in the fundamentally incompatible Lovecraft. Besides, Moore's already done Lovecraft.
