description
Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie, filthy pornographers

This graphic novel puts the “graphic” into pornographic, make no mistake about it. Sex acts of every imaginable configuration are rendered in vivid color and explicit detail, all across an extended narrative that is guaranteed to challenge the reader’s interpretation of at least several classic works. However, despite the fact that it's been lauded by multitudes of readers and well-respected authors alike, with Neil-Fucking-Gaiman himself calli

Pornography, according to John Soltenberg, tells lies about women but the truth about men. But is that because the genre's inherently flawed, or just because everyone who makes it is so mediocre?

Lost Girls is certainly an effort to say something truthful about women – as well as about men, adolescence, fantasy, freedom and common sense – but it takes you a fair while to get over the sheer chutzpah of using porn to do it. Is it brave? Is it justified?

Is it…is it sexy?

The premise is an interesting

wow. um, just...wow. i don't really know what i was expecting with this book when i first got it. i knew that it was by alan moore, the genius behind the comics/graphic novels watchmen , v for vendetta, from hell, the league of extraordinary gentleman, and many others, and i knew that it was a deconstruction of a genre like most of moore's work. in this case however, put bluntly as moore has in interviews requested it be done, that genre is "pornography," and lost girls is moore's attempt to "ta ...more

We get it, Alan. You're a total radical. WooOOOoooOOOoooOO. I'm not shocked by this book, I'm just sortof bored by it.

In case you don't know what this is: it's kiddie porn featuring lesbian sex between Alice (of Wonderland) and Dorothy (of Oz). See?! You were surprised, consternated and a little curious, right? That's what Moore wants you to feel! That's why he did it! He's just fucking with you. You know who writes lesbian sex scenes between Alice and Dorothy? Ninth grade boys. Because ninth gr

I am no shrinking violet or prude. And I love a good comic book as well as a well written spin on a fairy tale. Therefore when I heard that Alan Moore had written erotica comics with Alice in Wonderland, Dorothy from Oz, and Wendy Darling from Peter Pan as the 3 main characters, I was enthusiastic. What a fascinating idea! Sadly, the reality did not live up to my expectations.

I received all 3 volumes via Inter-library loan, and read the first one in its entirety. By the time I got halfway throu

Sadly, a bit of a disappointment -- some of the art is beautiful, and I enjoyed some of the story, but overall it's a) too much porn, b) porn which doesn't really appeal to my sensibilities for the most part, and c) kind of sad to see all the magic of these girls' stories taken out and replaced with sex. I initially thought that sex would just be included, but, despite the cleverness of some of the shifts (Captain Hook is a dirty old man who spies on the Lost Boys' debauchery in the park? nice), ...more

I don't always find my life story within the pages of fiction but there are three occasions when I did, and Alan Moore's graphic novel erotica Lost Girls was one of them.

This was quite a peculiar work as a whole, considering Melinda Gebbie's candy-colored illustrations could easily be a part of a children's book; but I suppose this choice of art style was deliberate because Moore's sensuous writings on sexuality and hedonism were deeply contrasted yet incredibly enhanced by Gebbie's art. It also

I really wanted to like Lost Girls, in no small part because I love Alan Moore's superhero deconstruction and I'm an admirer of the comic world's ballsiest writer. But in truth, these books are filth, and no amount of sacrificing to Glycon is going to change that...

Now hold onto your horse bestiality. I'm not one to blush. I'm not saying that these books are garbage because they include more genitalia per page than words. I'm fine with that, so long as the works stands.. erect on its merits. But

If you're not at all a prude (in any way shape or form) then you might enjoy this book. Instead of "book" in the last sentence, I accidently wrote "movie." I dont know what that means. Maybe that it was so well done that it was almost a cinematic experience? Hmmm..

I read this over the span of 3 days so I wouldnt get burnt out on it and I think that was a wise choice. At times I sat reading this oblvious to the world. I finished it a few minutes ago and I'm still kind of lost in the experience,

It has taken me a while to write this review, because it has taken me a while to figure out how I felt about Lost Girls. My rating of three stars is a compromise between two factors: For the years of thought and effort Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbe put into this opus, I felt they deserved four (and in places, five) stars; however, my enjoyment of the work only merited two (and in places, one or zero) stars.

I was already a fan of some of Alan Moore’s previous work (particularly The Ballad of Halo

This is a singular and remarkable attempt at 'reclaiming' pornography (and not, it should be stressed, more tame erotica), and one which, to my mind, more or less achieves that purpose, however unlikely the mould is to be readopted. Going by other reviews there seems a great deal of concern over the explicit nature of this work, each case duly prefaced with all manner of preemption that the reviewer is by no means a prude and has no problems with pornography, but this detail manages all the same ...more
James Payne
Great, I think, because I see Lost Girls as presenting inherent conflicts regarding views on sex from "The Left." Like the hotelier, the book seems to endorse an anarchic view by celebrating sex in all its various forms, deliberately transgressing against societal dogma - whether that's "be monogamous," or "don't jerk off a horse." But then, as Wendy, Dorothy, and Alice's stories devolve, you realize that their fantastical, dream-like sexual awakenings were also incest, abuse, street-hustling, r ...more

Graphic Novel, literally. Alice, Dorothy, and Wendy meet up in a hotel in Austria prior to WWI, have a lot of sex, and recount their experiences as children, but instead of the stories we're familiar with, we get a sexually skewed version of events.

I just don't know what to think of this. For now, my thoughts during the final volume: God, not more sex. I am so bored. OH MY GOD, DOROTHY GALE, WTF? Yes, yes, more cunnilingus, whatever. Yes, we all have strap-ons. Yes, Alice, someone's fingering y

Reading some other folks reviews of this made me kind of realize just how important this type of literature is. First of all, it's not porn, it's an attempt to tell a story that revolves around sex rather than violence. Last time I checked, violence is illegal and everyone has sex. And yet every kid in America witnesses something like 300,000 simulated murders on television by the time they're 11. I didn't once have the urge to jerk off while reading this. It maybe got me kind of hot to watch ac ...more

I have no problem with porn - as long as everyone is legal and consenting and earning a decent paycheck, let’s all get down with our bad selves. And in my juvenile days of becoming such a super-awesome sex-positive person, I thought I was very cool to bring up sex, very specifically, in inappropriate situations. Shock me, shock me, shock me with that deviant behavior! Since then, I’ve learned. Sex is something everyone does in their own ways, and everyone has their own secrets and deviances behi ...more

I wanted to like this. I didn't.
It's porn, deliberately so according to Alan Moore, and drops references galore and excessive to the artful pornographies of years gone by: mostly the Art Nouveau/Symbolist/Decadent movements. But porn has changed since then, for the worse, and where the illict desires previously deserved their own attention, our sexualized world now takes that desire for granted. What would people want to do, after all, besides suck and fuck one another?

Two disclaimers:

1. I was on the wait list for this from the library for a solid year.

2. This is porn. Don't read it if you don't want to read porn. I was surprised at how many people gave this three-volume set a low rating because of how much sex there is in it. It's porn.

The premise of this book is that on the eve of the first World War, three women check into a fancy European resort and have a wild time telling each other sexy stories and then having sex with each other (and other people). The

First a warning (or an endorcement! You know who you are...):

This book is porn. Not romance. Not erotica. It's flat out porn. It's porn with a plot that's intriguing enough that I, at least, tend to focus on story rather than the naked folks licking each other, but the fact remains this book is sexually graphic. Sex is not alluded to or used as an allegory. Sex is explicitly depicted. And not depicted because it naturally would have come about or in way might be considered "proper". No, this is

I have just remembered that I promised to write a review of this in my review of 25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom.

This book moves me in a very personal way. I see it as a love story between Melinda (who drew the pictures) and Alan (who wrote the plot.) I think the collaborative effort was far-reaching and I wonder at it every time I pick up one of the three volumes that make up this amazing book.

I don't know if they are still together but I certainly hope they are. What a beautiful gift to the wor

Blah blah controversial blah. There are loads of other reviews in which you can read about that aspect of Lost Girls. It’s probably obvious to most people on my friends list which side of the debate I’d be on and so here I’d rather just talk about what I thought was good and not. (Very late to the party here – quite a few friends had copies years ago, but as with Alan Moore comics in general, people were reluctant to lend them to anyone. I later became wary of it because technically some of the ...more

I am going to say Lost Girls was an oddly wonderful graphic novel. For those who want to call it porn, go right ahead. In my opinion, I think those who call it porn are degrading this book. I think of this more as erotica or a work of art. Yes, there is a ton of sex within the pages of this book and yes, it gets very graphic at times, but I think calling this porn is totally missing the point of the book. If you think this is porn then it sure has a lot going on for a simple sex story. It is act ...more

So, I'm reviewing pornography on the Internet. Since I'm researching graphic novels, I suppose I was also just paid by my University to read erotica. I'm definitely not complaining.

Lost Girls was written by Alan Moore (of Watchmen and V for Vendetta fame) and illustrated, quite graphically, by his wife Melinda Gebbie. In a way strangely similar to Will Eisner's attempts to elevate comics, Moore uses Lost Girls to elevate pornography. I think Moore succeeded in that elevation, because Lost Girls

Alice, Dorothy and Wendy meet up in 1913 and do A LOT OF RUDE THINGS, written/drawn by Moore and his missus.

It's very expensive and comes in a presentation box containing all three volumes. But considering how fancy this sounds, it isn't the beautiful object that you would hope it to be. The animation is really changeable - from frame to frame a single character can look completely different. Sometimes the angles are really crappy and faces become warped. Considering the stunning Aubrey Beardsle

Nonstop filthy.

It's pornography that repeats the same predictable formula: three lesbians fuck and then relocate to a new location (from steam room to pool, for example), at which point two lesbians fuck and the third recounts a personal story involving fucking. The lesbians in question are Alice (of Wonderland), Dorothy (of Oz), and Wendy (of Neverland). I use the term lesbian loosely since Dorothy and Wendy are rather lesbian n00bs, whose first preference is for males (usually ones related to

Oy vey, I need to stop picking up books just because they involve Alice in Wonderland.

Basically an excuse for porn, held together by an extremely flimsy plot. Even in the context of Alice, Dorothy and Wendy's sexual awakenings, it all seemed rather pointless. They sleep with each other, while telling the "real" stories behind the legend, which usually involve more sex and/or rape.

I'm certainly not a prude, nor do I have a problem with sex/rape in a book, so long as it furthers the plot and pro

I think I ought to start the review with a disclaimer - I'm not prudish, and I've enjoyed erotica and porn before (who hasn't?). So, any bad review here (and there's plenty of that), is purely from a personal viewpoint.

Let's not mistake Lost Girls for erotica - It is just about as much erotic as, say, your average 70s porn movie - storyline, music and all - and is just as cheesy. The fine line between erotica and porn is not only ignored here, it's probably invisible to Moore.

This is a great book. It apparently took Moore and Gebbie 16 years to make it, and it’s taken me 10 years to sort my mind around diving in and reading it. I bought it the day it came out and it’s been sitting on my Top Shelf (heh-) all that time. A question that I kept thinking was, “What is this book really about?” I think it’s ultimately about free speech, and the liberating sense for individuals to tell personal stories that they haven’t felt able to freely tell before. And it’s about sex and ...more

Nelze to popsat lépe, než je na přebalu: „V čiré pornografii nemá akce žádné důsledky: žádné těhotenství, žádné pohlavní choroby, žádná traumata, žádné vzpomínky, které je lépe nechat na pokoji. A právě v tomto ohledu se Ztracené dívky od porna zásadně liší: ono to celé je o následcích, nemluvě o válce, hudbě, lásce, žádostivosti, represi a paměti.“

Velmi zajímavý koncept od lehké erotiky až po incest a zoofilii. Dost se vám bude hodit znalost jiných literárních a výtvarných děl.

Reseña de Sergio Benítez para Fancueva:
http://www.fancueva.com/comic/lost-gi...

Antes que nada, y como aviso a aquellos cuya sensibilidad pueda ser herida, hay que aclarar que ‘Lost girls‘ es un tebeo pornográfico en toda regla. Nada de erótico. No. Aquí, el sexo, tanto visual como narrado, es utilizado por Alan Moore y Melinda Gebbie sin ningún tipo de pudor ni atadura durante un noventa por ciento de la lectura, dando el matrimonio un repaso completo a la práctica totalidad de las prácticas sex
