01 Jan 2017  |  Folha de S.Paulo
Alan Moore, known for his influential graphic novels, has released a new novel titled 'Jerusalem', a nearly 1,300-page work that explores the concept of eternalism and takes place in the oldest region of Northampton, England.

He criticizes the superhero industry, distancing himself from his past works and expressing dissatisfaction with the interference of large publishers.
