Alan Moore is widely regarded as the best and most influential writer in the history of comics. His seminal works include Miracleman and Watchmen, for which he won the coveted Hugo Award. Never one to limit himself in form or content, Moore has also published a novel, Voice of the Fire, an epic poem, The Mirror of Love, and three of his ground-breaking graphic novels, From Hell, V for Vendetta, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, have been adapted to the silver screen. Moore currently resides in Northampton, England, where he's simultaneously working on his next novel, Jerusalem, as well as two graphic novels: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Volume 3) with Kevin O'Neill (Part 1 currently available), and The Moon & Serpent Bumper Book Of Magic with Steve Moore (to be published by Top Shelf in 2011).
Melinda Gebbie's exquisite painted art has brought to comics a level of grace and craft rarely seen in the art form. Her career as a cartoonist dates back to the classic Underground era, where her work appeared in numerous comics, including the seminal all-women anthologies Wimmen's Comix and Tits & Clits, as well as her own solo book, the sexually charged Fresca Zizis. A native of San Francisco, Gebbie resides in England and is a frequent contributor to Alan Moore's projects, most notably as the co-creator and artist for the Cobweb character in the America's Best Comics line. Sixteen years in the making, Lost Girls represents her life's work.
This title is now available in a single hardcover volume: the legendary erotic masterpiece from Alan Moore, the visionary behind Watchmen, From Hell, and V for Vendetta! For more than a century, Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy have been our guides through the Wonderland, Neverland, and Land of Oz of our childhoods. Now, like us, these three lost girls have grown up and are ready to guide us again, this time through the realms of our sexual awakening and fulfillment. Through their familiar fairytales they share with us their most intimate revelations of desire in its many forms...revelations that shine out radiantly through the dark clouds of war gathering around a luxury Austrian hotel. Drawing on the rich heritage of erotica, Lost Girls is the rediscovery of the power of ecstatic writing and art in a sublime union that only the medium of comics can achieve. Exquisite, thoughtful, and human, Lost Girls is a work of breathtaking scope that challenges the very notion of art fettered by convention. This is erotic fiction at its finest.
