Alan Moore’s latest project Cinema Purgatorio was announced this morning via Kickstarter. Watch Moore’s clever droll promotional video. As of 10 a.m. it is already fully funded, but, while supplies last, readers can still get some handsome Providence premiums: autographed copies of Providence #1 and a new Kickstarter exclusive Providence Act 1 book that collects Providence #1-4.

For Cinema Purgatorio, due out from Avatar Press in May 2016, Moore joins forces with his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen collaborator Kevin O’Neil, plus additional features by Kieron Gillen / Ignacio Calero, Garth Ennis / Raulo Caceres, Christos Gage / Gabriel Andrade (Moore’s collaborator on Crossed Plus One Hundred), and Max Brooks and Michael DiPascale (Moore and Burrows’ collaborator on Providence Weird Pulp variant covers.)

Cinema Purgatorio looks fun – who is up for collaborating on annotations?

    • 12 chapters is a nice Watchmen-type length, I can see it ending up as a 12-issue floppy, like most collections.

      Irrelevant to this, but to get it off my chest… Marvel’s bloody Miracleman repubs! Each issue has half the pages as story, then the other half as the same thing, but as pencils or inks! You’re buying 2 of each page, but the latter ones aren’t finished.

      I know fans, particularly art fans, like to see the stages of a comic’s creation, and maybe learn from it. But this is pure ripoff. Pure profiteering. Marvel know they only have so many issues to print, so they’re gouging customers by making them buy twice as many books. And Miracleman has been awaited for so long, people are paying for them!

      In this case, I think Internet piracy is a good thing. I’ve bought the first 2 Miracleman collections, but have lost patience and downloaded the rest. I don’t think Alan gets any money from the reprints, or would even accept it. He’s had enough of Marvel for reasons of his own. So fuck ’em. They rip me off, I rip ’em back!
