What's Next For Uncle Alan?
- Hey, guys...
With Lost Girls now available (well...depending on where you're
located) and the Black Dossier hopefully arriving sometime within the
next 4 - 6 months, I thought I'd pose the question of what further
goodies await us down the road. From this vantage point, there seems
to be 4 projects in the works from AM that we can expect. In no
particular order, they are:
2. The League project after the Black Dossier, aka "LOEG Volume 3"
3. Collaboration with Jose Villarubia: "Graphic novel about magic"
(according to Lying in the Gutters) from some European publisher
4. The "original work" that Alan still owes to Avatar.
Does anyone know of any others? (Not that these aren't enough, mind
you. I don't want to appear greedy.)
Since we have some information about the first two, I have to say it's
the latter pair that are currently attracting my interest. I wonder if
the upcoming book with Jose has anything to do with the old "History
of Magic" series Alan was considering at one point? I had thought that
particular project had joined the long list of ideas we'd never
actually see developed, it's been so long since Moore's talked about
it. And as for the Avatar thing, all we know about it is that Alan
owes them something by contract, and he always honors his contracts.
It could be anything...which is why I'm so damn curious about it.
PS: The new Wizard (# 181) has a brief interview with AM, in which he
answers questions about the Black Dossier. There are *LOADS* of spoilers.

anyone's work per se. But there seems to be a curse on Uncle Alan's stuff
whereby any film based on such has been, to put it bluntly, shit.
It's not so much that the films fail to be the books -- I don't expect that.
I'd just like, for once, to see a good film get made, even if its
resemblance to the Moore original is only passing.
