The Tempest is coming!

The final Tempest.
From the Top Shelf Panel at San Diego Comicon 2017. 
Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill will be teaming up for League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol 4 called The Tempest, a six issue series in full color, and drawn from pop culture throughout time and space. This will be their “retirement project”, their last in comics, according to Top Shelf.

More at Top Shelf site: "[...] Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha’s lost African city of Kor and the domed citadel of ‘We’ on the devastated Earth of the year 2996, the dense and yet furiously-paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe from Lincoln Island to modern America to the Blazing World; from the Jacobean antiquity of Prospero’s Men to the superhero-inundated pastures of the present to the unimaginable reaches of a shimmering science-fiction future. With a cast-list that includes many of the most iconic figures from literature and pop culture, and a tempo that conveys the terrible momentum of inevitable events, this is literally and literarily the story to end all stories. [...]"

The Tempest miniseries will be published by Top Shelf and Knockabout, each issue 32 pages, with first issue to be released in June 2018.

The Comedian and... Groucho Marx

Groucho Marx.

Dave Gibbons: The one thing we knew about the character of the Comedian was he couldn’t look like the Joker. He couldn’t look like a deranged clown. So I thought, “Who else would be a comedian? Who could I think of?” The one that leaped to mind was Groucho Marx because he had the mustache and the cigar and the kind of slicked back hair. So he was very much a toughened-up version of Groucho Marx, which was what I had in mind.

H.P. Lovecraft: foresightful thinker

The Call of Cthulhu & Other Weird Stories
Above a small excerpt from the 7-page preface, dated 4 October 2016, written by Alan Moore for H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu & Other Weird Stories published by The Folio Society.

[...] The hindsight of almost a hundred years exposes H.P. Lovecraft as one of the twentieth century's most radical experimental writers despite the cobwebbed traditionalist disguise, as well as one of its most staggeringly original and worryingly foresightful thinkers. The infectious swoon of his delirious prose and his hallucinatory ideas evoke in the susceptible an escalating ecstasy of trepidation, like some legendarily unbalancing variety of absinthe that cannot be reproduced and isn't manufactured any more. [Alan Moore]

Gene Ha about Alan Moore

Art by Gene Ha and Zander Cannon.
Excerpt from an interview with the amazing GENE HA, well-known for his work with Moore on Top Ten series.

It’s part of Alan Moore’s theory that the imaginary realm is one giant realm. [...] They’re all connected together inside of one giant glowing world, so it had to kind of reference present day ideas and past ideas and just mash them together. If you look at any of his recent projects, it’s all about that mash-up of everything from our imagination existing at once. It’s a big theme of his.

[... ] He is literally the fastest creative mind I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve worked with some really creative minds.” [... ] When I’m having a conversation with him and he throws out ideas, I can’t keep up. He’ll literally leave me in the dust.
