Alan Moore has been in the press a bit recently, mostly due to his unhappiness at Watchmen prequels Belfre Watchmen. Watchmen was Moore’s story and he famously distances himself from anything connected to his books, including spin-offs and movie adaptations.
However, during a talk with contributors to a Kickstarter campaign to build a state in Cleveland commemorating native indie comics visionary Harvey Pekar, he spoke about his prose work on the soon-to-be-published Jerusalem, and the prequels. However, he became quite animated when talking about his latest chapter in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novels.
Alan Moore has announced that the final installment of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century, a chapter set in 2009, report comicbook , has been completed at the creative level and is off to the printer. For one reason or another, he hinted that it still may be late in meeting its June publishing deadline, but presumably not by much.
However, he also added that the League is by no means finished now that it has caught up to modern times. He and artist Kevin O’Neill will team up for Nemo: Heart of Ice, which will be set in the South Pole in 1920 with Moore’s take on Jules Verne’s famous captain being the focus of the tale. He gave very little details about this story, but either way, Moore + Nemo = awesome, so we’re definately onboard.
We have imbedded the video of Moore chatting about The League below.
