Alan Moore, Lost Girls: The Great and Terrible (Top Shelf, 2006)

Writer Alan Moore and illustrator Melinda Gebbie being Lost Girls to a rousing, if bitter, conclusion with The Great and Terrible. If you've been following along, you know what to expect: the conclusions of the tales of Alice in Wonderland, the Wizard of Oz, and Peter Pan in the usual pornographic renditions. The series ends at the outbreak of World War I.

As with the other two volumes, Moore and Gebbie set out here to raise pornography to an art; at the end of this long, long project, I find it hard to see how it would be possible for anyone to dispute that it is an experiment that has met with unqualified success. Lost Girls, explicit or not, is art in every sense of the word. A work that deserves to be on the shelf of every serious reader. ****
