There are a lot of legendary comics out there, and many of them are attached to legendary writers and artists. For some though, they are a League above. At San Diego Comic-Con, Top Shelf Productions revealed that Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill would come together to finish the story of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
This series has had a lot of books over the years, but this one will be a miniseries called The Tempest, and will truly wrap up the story. For those who don’t know, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a mashup of characters from literary history coming together to fight evils that only they can stop. It was even made into a movie led by Sean Connery.
But this will be the end for them, as well as maybe the end for Moore and O’Neill:
“Tying up the slenderest of plot threads and allusions from the three preceding volumes, The Black Dossier, and the Nemo trilogy into a dazzling and ingenious bow, the world’s most accomplished and bad-tempered artist-writer team will use their most stylistically adventurous outing yet to display the glories of the medium they are leaving; to demonstrate the excitement that attracted them to the field in the first place; and to analyse, critically and entertainingly, the reasons for their departure.”
The book will arrive in Summer 2018.
