Alan Moore goodies coming our way:
First up, DC may eventually get around to publishing The League of Extra-Ordinary Gentlemen Black Dossier.
Then in 2008: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 3: Century
From the Top Shelf website:
Drawing from the fiction, theatre, film and television culture of the twentieth century as artfully as the preceding volumes drew upon the literature of the nineteenth, this first installment of the League's adventures to be co-published by Top Shelf Productions and Knockabout takes our familiar cast of characters … plus several previously unfamiliar … and propels them into a new age, a new world every bit as strange and savage as the colourful Victorian era they were born to. More than this, with its third volume the League's exploits move into a different realm of format, artistry and story-telling as this remarkable series sets out to explore the full limits of the vast fictional cosmos that it has marked as its territory.
A unified field theory of fiction as much as a comic-book story
Love that last line - A unified field theory of fiction indeed!
And then, arriving sometime in 2009 : The Moon & Serpent Bumper Book of Magic.
The book I'm hoping will be a continuation of everything Moore has been putting into his spectacular and innovative performance pieces over the last decade:
320 pages full of Moore and Moore (no relation) expounding upon the theory of magic.
If this can get even a quarter of the intensity and vision of the audio cds onto the printed page then it will be a spectacular thing indeed. More, I'm sure, on this as the release date creeps around.
Details of both books on the Top Shelf website.
