Alan Moore Confirms Retirement From Comic Books During a press conference promoting his latest novel, the legendary writer spoke about his plans to retire, stating that he has “about 250 pages of comics left” in him. “Me and Kevin [O’Neil] will be finishing ‘Cinema Purgatorio,’ and we’ve got about one more book, a final book of ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ to complete. After that, although I may do the odd little comics piece at some point in the future, I am pretty much done with comics.” Moore noted that while he still has great respect for the medium, he believes that his work with comic books has run its course. He expressed a willingness to pass the reigns to younger creators, rather than see the quality of his work diminish by rehashing the same themes. The author also hinted that he might be interested in tackling new challenges, like film. The man has had a long line of incredible works: Watchmen, The Killing Joke, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, V for Vendetta. Even though he is a bit of an eccentric, I look forward to any new creative ventures of his, in comics or elsewhere.
