ALAN MOORE: FASHION BEAST TPB

Retail Price: $24.99 US

Writers: Alan Moore, Malcolm McLaren, Antony Johnston

Cover & Artist: Facundo Percio

MR, Color, 256 pages

ALAN MOORE has redefined the graphic novel with his seminal works – Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell, and Neonomicon are essential to any readers discovering the comic book medium. At long last, Moore’s time lost masterpiece is presented in deluxe trade paperback and hardcover collections of the complete ten issue Fashion Beast series. Doll was unfulfilled in her life as a coat checker of a trendy club. But when she is fired from the job and auditions to become a “mannequin” for a reclusive designer, the life of glamour she always imagined is opened before her. She soon discovers that the house of Celestine is as dysfunctional as the clothing that define the classes of this dystopian world. This unique reimagining of Beauty and the Beast was written in 1985 alongside Alan Moore’s comics masterpiece Watchmen. Beautifully illustrated by Facundo Percio (Anna Mercury) and meticulously adapted by Antony Johnston (Yuggoth Cultures), this is another must have entry in the graphic novel masterworks library by Alan Moore.

MR, Color, 256 pages

In a volume that spans several eras of Crossed infection, we join three prolific writers each telling a tale set in the horrifying misery of the world during the plague. Series creator GARTH ENNIS returns to tell a story so big that it re-defines the way you will see the Crossed. In “The Fatal Englishman” the last military unit in Britain faces the biggest question of them all – when do you risk eliminating all life to stop the Crossed! SIMON SPURRIER puts us in the mind of a unique Crossed relationship, one which sees lovers from two different worlds as they are driven apart by infection. DAVID LAPHAM continues fan-favorite Crossed Psychopath survivor, Amanda’s tale as she fights with the rising insanity in her own mind and a group of lunatic scavengers in “The Livers.” Go where other horror survival stories fear to tread and enter the grueling world of the Crossed! This volume collects issues #19-28 of the Crossed Badlands series.

The launch of Kieron Gillen’s epic new monthly series, Uber, was an instant success and sellout in comic shops! The Uber #0 Enhanced Edition is a 64 page ultra-edition that delivers the full 48 page comic with additional behind the scenes content, interview material, research, preliminary designs, and unseen pencil art that take you into the mind of Kieron Gillen as he maps out the course of World War II following the arrival of the Ubers.
