Alan Moore's Final Maxwell The Magic Cat, In The Final Northants Herald & Post

The Northants Herald & Post is a free weekly newspaper serving the Northampton district in the UK. After forty years, this week saw it's last issue published.

But in a "why the hell not", they gave the editorial reigns of the last issue to the Northampton Arts Lab to publish, well, what the hell they wanted. Including a page from longtime Arts Lab contributor and funder, Alan Moore. Who wrote an editorial for the issue, and wrote and drew a final Maxwell The Magic Cat strip, the cartoon he drew thirty-five years ago for the paper, collected later here.

The entire final issue, which could be seen as a special extra issue of Dodgem Logic, can be found here.

And while the website for the paper has gone, the Facebook page is still working and being updated here.
