5.0 out of 5 stars What a delightfully bizzare comic book! 16 Jun 1996
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The Last Temptation is based on a concept created by rock star Alice Cooper and Neil Gaiman (author of the Sandman comics). The story was the basis for Alice Cooper's album of the same name. However, after the album was finished it was clear that the story needed to be told. It would have been a crime to keep the story of Steven and how he was tempted by the mysterious Showman from the public. On the day before Hallowe'en one year, while walking home from school with his friends, Steven discovers an old theater. They encounter a strange man in a battered coat and top hat who offers them a ticket to the theater. It's the theater of the real, "The only entertainment that gives you undiluted wonder". However, there is only one ticket. Only one boy can visit the theater, and didn't your parents tell you not to accept presents from strangers? Steven's no fool, but when his friends accuse him of being to scared to take the ticket he has no choice but to follow the Showman into his strange, twisted carnival of souls. What Steven doesn't know is that this is the Theater of the Real, and he isn't just the audience, he's also the star, and the show must go on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thankyou Amazon 25 May 2000
Format:Paperback
When i found this on Amazon i was delighted as i was under the impression that it was out of print. The story is quite slick, mixing the odd few lyrics from the last temptation with the text. This makes the book an essential accessory to the album, and, vice versa. Only now can i understand what Alice is going on about when he says "Mercy..Please! ..I'm on my knees! .. You're my temptation". A must for Coop fans, and a worthy addition to any comic book fans collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the Alice Cooper Completist 3 Oct 2001
By Reinard Santos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I actually bought this book just for the "Dave Mc Kean" value. I was surprised to read a sick and twisted tale that rivals the comic series Todd McFarlane has done for KISS. It also has a great art by Michael Zulli, although I like his pencilled art on the Sandman series: the Wake. ... not a big Alice Cooper fan. I heard that lots of Cooper maniacs are after this gem from the now defunct Marvel Music series...
