The Ballad of Halo Jones, by Alan Moore and Ian Gibson, has been around since the mid-1980s. Until now, it hadn’t been subjected to the nit-picking scrutiny of internet annotators. The Panelwise team decided to leap into that void! Find in process Halo Jones annotations at the Annotations Index page.
Look over the sections that are more or less completed (as of today that’s volume/book one) and use the comments to let us know what we missed or got wrong.
The Panelwise team decided to come up with new expanded annotations for issue five of the Smax comic by Alan Moore and Zander Cannon – with Andrew Currie, Richard Friend, Wildstorm FX, and Todd Klein.
For this May 2004 issue, there are very brief basic annotations available at Enjolra’s World – written by Paul Andinach in 2010. But, on a re-read, there were a few more references we wanted to add, so we decided to build on Andinach’s work.
We still have a few questions about some parts of Smax that maybe appear to reference something. Read through the issue 5 annotations page, and use the comments to let us know about things we missed.
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.
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.
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!”
