When The Topless Halo Jones Was Covered Up

Where did she go? Out. What did she do? Took her top off apparently.

So the Bristol Comics Expo ran this news on their site.

In the next of our Expo eXclusive charity prints, our special guest Ian Gibson brings his eponymous heroine Halo Jones back to print! Only 50 of these will be printed and they are sure to go fast!

..and once again, for the discerning adult, we also have a special, very limited run of Halo in all her ‘glory’! This is an opportunity not to be missed!

These high quality A3 prints will be signed and numbered with all proceeds going to the charity.

To pre-register for one of the prints, please contact us at info@bristolexpo.co.uk (please note which print you want)


So, go on, have a guess how that went over.







That was Mike Molcher from Rebellion there, the owners of Halo Jones, even though she was co-created by Alan Moore and Ian Gibson.

And sure enough, soon the website only listed one of the prints with the line;

* Unfortunatly, due to copyright concerns, we are no longer able to offer the 2nd Halo Jones print.

But here’s a curio. These kind of prints are usually sold with a nod and a wink, with the publishers turning a legal blind eye. Can Rebellion really object to one print, but not the other, without causing a legal vortex of doom?

Apparently so.

And anyway, they still have the John Higgins naked Razorjack prints. And no copyright issues on those, it’s creator-owned you see…

Weirdly the image was originally a non-Halo image, that Gibson just added the name Halo Jones to. Maybe he could change it back? Or maybe to Areola Jones?
