The four annotators have had our say, as have an uncountable cast of commentators. Annotations for The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Tempest issue 6 are posted – though we’d never claim they were entirely complete. We’ll keep updating as commentators and annotators spot new things. To quote Moore: “Nothing ever ends.”
There are still plenty of references to be identified, but our crack league of laudatory annotators have weighed in on Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s first four issues of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 4, The Tempest.
Find all Tempest annotations via our handy Annotations Index page.
Exciting news on the horizon, too!
According to ComicsList, LoEG: The Tempest issue five is due out next week – on Wednesday March 27! Go easy on the comments on the issue 5 annotations page until we’re able to post our first run-through draft.
Joe Linton here. A few years ago I so much enjoyed Jess Nevins’ annotations for The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Top Ten, that I decided to try my hand at annotating Splash Brannigan.
When Moore and O’Neill’s final LoEG arc – The Tempest – was announced, I checked in with Nevins and confirmed that he was planning annotations.
Nevins completed annotations for the first issue of Tempest and part of the second. When issue four came out, I got a couple of emails from Moore fans asking if I would be up for doing Tempest annotations. I checked in with Nevins, not wanting to step on the toes of the person who inspired me to try my hand at annotating Moore. Nevins responded telling me: “I just don’t have time for the annotations any more, not with the paying jobs in front of me, so by all means take over!”
