¡Blasfemia! ¡Herejía! ¡A la hoguera con los pecadores!
Un libro ideal para escandalizar a los amantes de lo decimonónico y darle perversas pero entendibles vueltas de tuerca a clásicos universales cuyo mayor punto en común puede que sea la sublimación absoluta de los impulsos sexuales.
Después veré si agarro "Peter Pan" antes de seguir con la trilogía, así tengo leídas de primera mano las obras primas, o si sigo sumido en mi ignorancia y revolviéndome en este precioso pantano pornográfico.

Note to self: Leer la descripción del libro antes de empezarlo, sí? Porfa, gracias.

This is very much a case of 'does what it says on the tin' and whether you find that worthwhile will depend very much on what you think of that. I'm not generally concerned with the sexual morality of fiction (in universe - how it occurs in and/or affects the real world is often an entirely separate issue), so none of this was particularly upsetting to me, especially because, though the illustrations are graphic, the storytelling isn't... exploitative, I think, is the best word for it.

I've seen 70's porno movies with more plot than this. As there isn't really a story here, telling you that I'm not cool with incest and child rape isn't much of a spoiler, and really, what was the point? Lesbian 3 way comic porn could have been done with a bit more substance and class, if you want Dorothy, Alice and Wendy to find their sexual freedom, it doesn't have to come at the cost of questionable legality. Is it supposed to shock people, or make them question themselves if they find themse ...more

I read the idea for this and was all for it. However, there are some themes in here that I don't care for. There are some pretty inappropriate scenarios in this even for a pornographic comic. I usually love Alan Moore, but just can't get on board with rape or incest. I also realize those things are in A Song of Ice and Fire, but in this context it was too much. The comic could have been written better, but the concept seems really cool.

TW: Sexual abuse. Pornographic images.

Wendy, Dorothy, and Alice from childhood fairytales have grown up and gone through some sexual awakenings. This is a recounting of their first sexual experiences in explicit detail. The art is good and it is increasing to see the girls grown up, but there isn't a lot of substance to be found.

It's real weird. It's also very good, it's deep and profound and insightful, but is really, really weird. The sex isn't all fun happy stuff either, plenty of disturbing stuff I wasn't expecting. The idea is genius, and it's super cool. But it's real weird.

You see, there's the way things seemed and then there's the way things were and one is so often the total reverse of the other.

To elevate pornography to the level of literature (and this was Moore's stated agenda) you better have some deservingly complex content to insert amidst the sex. In my opinion, this book doesn't.

An odd story

I am a huge fan of his Swamp Thing so I decided to try some of his other works. The art is very adult but it is well in the scope of this work.

Alan Moore sorprende con questa graphic novel pornografica. È un modo per conoscere un'altra sfaccettatura della sua inventiva, dopo aver letto capolavori come Watchmen o V for Vendetta.

Le illustrazioni sono della moglie Melinda Gebbie, mentre la storia – perché c'è davvero una storia – è naturalmente di Alan Moore e l'idea di base la trovo originale: in un resort di montagna in Austria, agli albori della Prima Guerra Mondial

I haven't read a good graphic novel in quite a while, so my excitement about this one might be partly due to starvation. But I still think it is a true work of art. It quotes from so many works (obviously Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan) and styles and there's so many layers to text and illustartion that it is impossible to do it justice with just one reading. It IS pronographic, of course- I was led to it as anti-pornographic, but I think I'd rather call it meta-pornographic ...more

An interesting idea, but seems to mostly just be written for shock, sex and scandal rather than a thought out plot so far. Exactly the same as porn versions of films. Takes some details, but give no real attention to the story. Some of the speech was annoying, the way it was written, but it's the same with a lot of comics, exaggerated. The description of the Ballet/Opera was actually quite nicely written but a little dull and seemingly unrelated to a deeper plot.

Not to mention, the foundation ma

This is a difficult graphic novel to rate - lyrically written by Alan Moore and beautifully illustrated, it is a work of art but it is a work of art about lesbian sex and teenage sexual exploration between Alice (in Wonderland), Dorothy (Wizard of Oz), and Wendy (Peter Pan).

There are deep and dark insights to be told about the less than innocent minds of JM Barrie or Lewis Carroll and the rather creepy, pedophillic undertones of their private lives and stories, but Lost Girls comes across more a

Pretty, but it doesn't really work for me. At first I thought I was being offended, but then I realized: I'm not bothered by this being obscene. And I don't object to sexual readings of kid's stories. I think it's that I don't think the stories he's chosen to sex up seem like really awkward choices. Peter Pan, especially, is fundamentally a story about childhood, right? There's no sex in Never-Neverland. And you can try and smush sex in there somewhere, but it never seems natural to me. I see wh ...more

Hm. Thanks, the undergrad.
Of course, I have a little bit of trouble with our old pal Al making something obscene out of Wendy and Dorothy (I don't really care that much about Alice..) But I think I vaguely appreciate the musing on the sexual aspect of magic. Just as a musing. Not for real (because that would be lame).

The pacing was pretty great (as in--not trying to cram tons and tons of stuff into not that many pages ala LOEG) and the style of the art was wonderful. I'd definitely read somethin

As engaging as League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and disturbing as From Hell (um, more so?), Lost Girls is baffling in beauty and scope. I can't describe my sexual state while reading this book. Was I turned on? Off? Around? The third volume is not for the faint of heart. After my friend Kat read it, all she could say was "Oh my god" over and over again. She isn't easily shocked.

Errm, this was definitely raunchier and smuttier than I expected. Coming into this only knowing that it was Alan Moore's work, I thought it would be more along the lines of Fable, fairy tales retold in a more adult way.

Instead this is far more explicit. However some of the twists in the tale are quite imaginative.
Michelle Morrell
What I learned from this book: You can get pr0n at the library! Very beautifully illustrated, hard core lesbian/straight/gay/various permutations of all of the above pr0n. Oh, and there was a story :)

Alan Moore, you've shocked me!

It takes half the book to even meet the characters (who are never all that well developed).

And really, the big reveal at their end was their first names (as though we didn't figure that out half a book earlier)?

El dibujo no me gustó. En algunas partes incluso se veían partes encimadas, como si fueran dibujadas por alguien inexperto. No sé, tal vez ese es el estilo de Melinda Gebbie, pero el hecho de encontrarle errore me hacía perder el foco de la historia, la cual tampoco es gran cosa.
