Lost Girls Hardcover Edition (2009, 240 pp)[return]by Alan Moore & Melinda Gebbie[return][return][return]**NSFW** [return][return]Ever wonder what happened after the fairy tales? [return][return]Alice is back through the looking glass, Dorothy has returned from Oz and Wendy is home from Neverland. They find themselves together in an Austrian hotel in 1913. They get acquainted, as long-term holiday residents often do, and discover that they have interests in common. As they relate the tales of their past they create shared experiences in the present.[return][return]The (VERY) adult adventures of three are illustrated in styles particular to each character; Alice’s through her journal entries and ‘looking glass’ view, Dorothy’s with the wide-open perspective of Kansas farmland, Wendy’s through the tall narrow windows of Victorian England.[return][return]Alan Moore (of The Watchman and V for Vendetta) and Melinda Gebbie spent 16 years in the production of Lost Girls, originally published in three graphic novel editions, now available in a single hardbound volume. The artwork is elegant, the production value extremely high and the tales engaging. There is some controversy around the volume because of the accounts of the girls’ underage sexual experiences. If that is a concern – even though it has been ruled not to be child pornography – this is not a book for you.
