FIRST LOOK: Fashion Beast #1 Preview, Plus a Lead-In from Alan Moore

We’re happy to share these thoughts from Alan Moore on the new Fashion Beast series, launching in September:

Since Malcolm McLaren first suggested that I write a screenplay based on his notion of marrying the strange and isolated life of Christian Dior with the fable Beauty and the Beast, I’ve often wondered what such an unlikely concept would have looked like had it been properly realised. Now, albeit in a different medium, I finally get to find out thanks to Antony Johnston’s excellent adaptive skills and the appropriately stylish artwork of Facundo Percio. It’s an odd tale, in its subject matter and in the mode of its telling, and I like to think that Malcolm would be very pleased to see another of his startling and incendiary ideas brought so intriguingly into existence.

Also, an exclusive look at the first eight pages of Fashion Beast #1!
