From the Top Shelf Panel at San Diego Comicon 2017. 
Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill will be teaming up for League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol 4 called The Tempest, a six issue series in full color, and drawn from pop culture throughout time and space. This will be their “retirement project”, their last in comics, according to Top Shelf.

The Tempest miniseries will be published by Top Shelf and Knockabout, each issue 32 pages, with first issue to be released in June 2018.
