Alan Moore announces latest League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen story… (video)

February 10th, 2012 by Marc Comments

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
