Yup. Six issue series finale Coming in July.

Issue 1 Solicitation text

After an epic twenty-year journey through the entirety of human culture, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill conclude both their legendary League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and their equally legendary comic-book careers with the series' spectacular fourth and final volume, "The Tempest." This six-issue miniseries is a celebration of everything comics were, are, and could be. Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha's lost African city of Kor, and the domed citadel of 'We' on the devastated Earth of the year 2996, the dense and yet furiously-paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe. This is literally, and literarily, the story to end all stories. Here's how it begins.



Issue 2 Solicitation text
Quote
Opening with a 1919 death match between two American superhumans in the ruins of Utopia, the second issue of Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s final volume of the beloved comic series takes its readers on a breath-taking ride over a waterfall of storytelling styles, from a startling 21st century Lincoln Island and its current incarnation of the legendary Captain Nemo, through a New York coping with an ageing costume-hero population, to a London where a drastic escalation is commenced by the rejuvenated sociopath controlling MI5. All this, and a further reprinted adventure of 1960s super-team The Seven Stars, awaits in issue two of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume IV: The Tempest.

That'll take us to the end of the year (assuming they get published one a month, which is quite a presumption for those of us who were on board from the first series!)

According to the press release from Gosh! this will be Alan and Kevin's last comics work.

(I know Alan has retired from comics before, but I think this is a first for Kev?)
