Alan Moore’s Final Comic THE MOON AND SERPENT BUMPER BOOK OF MAGIC Coming in 2024 — GeekTyrant

For years, Alan Moore has been saying that he plans to retire from writing comic books, but he has one final project that will be coming out this year, in 2024. That project is titled The Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic, and Top Shelf Productions and Knockabout Limited announced that it’s coming in October 2024.

The Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic is the product of a years-long creative partnership between Moore and his “creative and magical mentor” Steve Moore (no relation), and the book is described as a “celebration of magic and the occult has been meticulously under development for nearly two decades and is brought to life through a combination of prose, illustration, and sequential art from five incredible artists.”

Chris Staros, Editor-in-Chief of Top Shelf Productions, said in a statement: “One of the great honors of my publishing career has been to work with Alan Moore on so many monumental projects, like From Hell and Lost Girls. The Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic represents an amazing capstone, created by Alan and Steve, and brilliantly brought to life by five unforgettable artists. It’s been a privilege to watch those magical minds spend years building this grimoire, and I’m proud to join Knockabout in finally sharing it with the world.”

Here’s how the publisher describes the book: “The secrets of the celebrated Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels (sorcery by appointment since circa 150 AD) promise to be revealed in The Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic. This clear and practical grimoire of the occult pairs the knowledge of the proprietors of the aforementioned Grand Egyptian Theatre with illuminating visual delights from artists Kevin O’Neill, John Coulthart, Steve Parkhouse, Rick Veitch, and Ben Wickey. Unprecedented in its scope and splendor, this tome is full to bursting with illustrated instructional essays, activity pages, biographies of the great sorcerers, and forbidden knowledge sure to tantalize even the most disillusioned of adults into believing in magic once again.”
