Alan Moore To Write Rock Opera For ‘Gorillaz’ Duo.
Alan Moore

Legendary comic book writer Alan Moore is set to write the lyrics for the next opera by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, the duo behind the popular “The Gorillaz” virtual band.

In an interview with Mustard Magazine, Moore stated “[Albarn and Hewlett] came down to Northampton last week because we’re planning for me to do the libretto on their next opera.” Albarn and Hewlett’s previous “circus opera” was “Monkey: Journey to the West” which received critical acclaim in 2007 and led to a series of animated promos for the 2008 Olympics on BBC.

Moore also revealed that Albarn and Hewlett will be contributing to “Dodgem Logic”, a bi-monthly underground magazine founded by Moore that will debut later this month in the United Kingdom.

“[For the third issue] we’ve hopefully got [The Gorillaz] onboard,” Moore said. “Being an opportunist, I asked them if they’d be prepared to contribute some pages to ‘Dodgem Logic.’ Rather than just doing an interview, I thought it would be interesting to hand over a few pages for them to curate.”

“Dodgem Logic” is Moore’s self-described “fanzine” that harkens back to some of his earliest work in the British comic press before he became known for several seminal comics including “Watchmen”, “V For Vendetta” and “The League of Extraordinary Gentleman.”

The most recent volume of “League of Extraordinary Gentleman”—released earlier this year by Top Shelf—featured a sampling of Moore’s lyrics in songs inspired by “The Threepenny Opera.”

Earlier this week, musician Jeymes Samuel hinted that Albarn and Hewlett are also working on the long awaited “Gorillaz” animated feature film.

Barack Obama Names Alan Moore Official White House Biographer | The Onion – America’s Finest News Source.

WASHINGTON—At a press conference Monday, President Obama announced that he had appointed legendary comic book writer Alan Moore as the official biographer of his time in the White House. “As evidenced by his epic run on Swamp Thing #21–64, Moore’s deft hand with both sociopolitical commentary and metaphysical violence makes him an ideal choice to chronicle my time in office,” Obama said of the author of Watchmen and From Hell, whom he reportedly chose over others on a short list of potential biographers that included Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison, and Bob Woodward. “I look forward to seeing the kinds of subplots he will surely weave throughout the main narrative of my presidency, and how he’ll tie them all back together at the end in a way that just elevates the thing to a whole other level. God, that guy is the master.” Although Obama has not yet settled on a publisher for his White House biography, he is reportedly leaning toward DC’s Vertigo imprint for its creator-friendly ethos, high production values, and willingness to publish content for mature readers.
