Moore and O'Neill's League concludes with The Tempest

This summer, co-published between Knockabout (UK) and Top Shelf (USA), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen saga will conclude with a six-issue mini-series entitled The Tempest. Written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Kevin O'Neill, two of the greatest creators in comics (and two of my favourite people I've known in this business), The Tempest begins in June, available from comics speciality shops across the UK and USA. The first issue (shown above) has a Classics Illustrated homage cover.

Here's the info from the Previews website:

(W) Alan Moore (A/CA) Kevin O'Neill

After an epic twenty-year journey through the entirety of human culture, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill conclude both their legendary League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and their equally legendary comic-book careers with the series' spectacular fourth and final volume, "The Tempest." This six-issue miniseries is a celebration of everything comics were, are and could be. 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. This is literally, and literarily, the story to end all stories. Here's how it begins. This is literally, and literarily, the story to end all stories. Here's how it begins.
