The first series, launching later this year, is titled “8House: Kiem,” written by Graham and illustrated by Xurxo Penalta. “8House: Arclight” follows, also written by Graham and illustrated by Marian Churchland, who released the acclaimed graphic novel “Beast” in 2009. "Pretty Deadly" artist Emma Rios moves into the writer slot with third miniseries “8House: Mirror,” illustrated by Hwei Lim — Graham says each creator will own what they contribute under the “8House” banner.
A few words of explanation about this interview: On the 26th of November 2013 there was an event called An Evening with Alan Moore, where Moore was in conversation with biographer Lance Parkin, whose biography of Moore, Magic Words, had just been published by Aurum Press. The evening also included two short films, Act of Faith and Jimmy’s End, both part of a larger cycle of works, as well as some of Moore’s collaborators taking the stage, and a Q&A session with the audience. The evening seemed to be a great success – at least, I was there, and it seemed so to me, and to anyone else I talked to – but one of the attendees was not happy, and took to Twitter to say so. He Tweeted ‘Really wish An Evening with Alan Moore hadn’t involved four white people on stage defending the “golliwog” as a “strong black character” – Followed by a short film about a young woman stripping, dressing in “slutty clothes” and killing herself on screen – Followed by Moore insulting Gordon Brown based on mental and physical disability – I then left the venue.
