Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill Flip DC the Bird
& Take Award Winning League to Top Shelf

In a move that's sure to completely decimate DC's Eisner Award winning plans for 2007 and 2008, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill are taking the mighty League of Extraordinary Gentlemen to Chris Staros and Brett Warnock's Top Shelf Productions.

Moore's disagreements with DC over the handling of merchandising royalties, promotional tom-foolery, content interference on the ABC line, and Hollywood boot-licking are well documented throughout the writer's career and killed a proposed 15th anniversary Watchmen hardcover back in 2000. The decision to take League from DC over to Top Shelf was based on V For Vendetta producer Joel Silver claim that Moore approved of the film's script (which he obviously did not) and DC's inability to issue any kind of retraction or apology. So until Alan Moore changes his mind, or hell freezes over, don't expect to see Moore publishing any material with DC in 2006 or beyond.

Although Moore and O'Neill are taking their toys and going to play in somebody else's sandbox, DC will continue publishing League volumes 1 & 2, along with the $100 Absolute Edition and the upcoming original hardcover The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Dark Dossier, which Moore seems quite pleased with. The Isotope gives a pat on the back to our friends at Top Shelf for pulling the coup of the year and offers a standing ovation to CBR writer Rich Johnston for breaking this story and for rocking our Monday. Thanks Rich!
