Strange Bedfellows: Gorillaz and Alan Moore Working on an Opera


TwentyFourBit reports that comic book god Alan Moore ( Watchmen , V for Vendetta and From Hell) will collaborate with Gorillaz on a followup to Damon Albarn’s 2007 opera, Monkey: Journey to the West. In exchange, the band will curate a few pages of Dodgem Logic, Moore’s new bi-monthly magazine.

Moore explained the mutually-beneficial deal in an interview with MustardWeb: “[Gorillaz] came down to Northampton last week because we’re planning for me to do the libretto on their next opera project. Being an opportunist, I of course asked them if they’d be prepared to contribute some pages to Dodgem Logic. Rather than just doing an interview with them, I thought it would be interesting to hand over a few pages for them to curate.”

More details on the project as they emerge.
