Dear sweet Grud, please please please don't let this be a spoof.  3D glasses, a record and more porno-comics!  Outstanding!

It does sound fantastic. Alan Moore seems to be going all out on it.

Has got me wondering on how much it's going to cost, though.

I think it's very much genuine. Most of that extra gubbins has been mooted pretty much since The Black Dossier was first announced, and usually by Alan himself, but it's been some time (a good year at least) since there was anything more officially confirmed. Last I heard, for instance, the record had been long since abandoned.

So it's great to hear from the bearded one himself that's it all still planned and imminent. Also thrilled to hear it's morphed slightly into a sort of 'source book' detailing the entire history of the League.

Safe to say I can't bloody wait.

Aye, but it sounded (and still sounds) too good to be true, one of those madly over-ambitious Moore projects that never quite get to the shelves.  I dread to even think about the cost of something like this, but it must be mine.

Well I'm going to be holding out for the Absolute version, to go with volumes I and II. My wallet is already in tears. :-)

Will we get a 12 inch single instead of a 45 with the absolute edition? ; )

Since it's not even out till October, I think you could have enough saved.

Spoof Shakespeare?  Spoof Orwell?  Spoof Beat novel?

This sounds like it may well be shit.

I don't think "spoof" is entirely fair - if I remember the times Moore has adopted another writer's voice before, he has normally played it very straight & really tried to make it sound like something that could have been written by them.

Sounds fuckin' brilliant to me. Can't wait to see O'Neill's art on the Orwell Porn.
