Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill are bringing The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and their careers to a close. The final volume of the literary-based coming will end with The Tempest. This new graphic novel will help tie up lose ends from the three proceeding volumes.
Here’s the synopsis:
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 six-part mini series League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Tempest comes to shelves next Summer.
