Legendary comic writer Alan Moore announced his retirement from comics at the London press conference for his new novel Jerusalem, according to The Guardian.  The writer of Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Batman:  The Killing Joke, and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, among many others, told reporters that he has “about 250 pages of comics left in me.” 

Based on his statements at the press conference, the works Moore plans to complete include Cinema Purgatorio and Providence from Avatar, and the final book of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

He did leave the door open to some future work on a limited basis.  “After that, although I may do the odd little comics piece at some point in the future, I am pretty much done with comics,” he said.  Moore plans to keep working, but to focus on films and literary novels.
