The final comic book work from graphic literature legend Alan Moore is coming later this year, Popverse reports.

Top Shelf Productions and Knockabout Ltd. will publish The Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic, co-written with Steve Moore, in the fall. The press describes the book as a “veritable grimoire of the magical, the mystical, and even the macabre.”

Moore is one of the most respected comic book authors in the history of the genre, known for works including V for Vendetta, From Hell, and Watchmen. In 2022, he announced that he would no longer write comics, saying, “I haven’t written one for getting on for five years. I will always love and adore the comics medium, but the comics industry and all of the stuff attached to it just became unbearable.”

Top Shelf says that The Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic “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.” The art for the book will be provided by Kevin O’Neill, John Coulthart, Steve Parkhouse, Rick Veitch, and Ben Wickey.

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,” Top Shelf editor-in-chief Chris Staros said in a statement. “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.”

The Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic is slated for publication on Oct. 15.
