Product description

About the Author

Alan Moore is the author of From Hell, Watchmen, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, V For Vendetta, all of which have been (or are being) made into major motion pictures. This is his most ambitious and challenging project ever completed (15 years in the making). Lost Girls will be yet another addition to Moore's long list of genre-defining works, as it seeks to reinvent pornography as something exquisite, thoughtful, and human.

Lost Girls is Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie's attempt to elevate pornography into something better than what it is today, and they do it superbly. The book clearly reflects the creative team's belief that sex is underrepresented in literature and can be used to tell a story as well as every other aspect of life. The content might not be to everybody's taste - especially with the heavy incest and underage themes present - but the book clearly didn't want to compromise in depicting sexuality. To top it off, it crosses over three of the best children's fantasy books into the same universe (abeit altered so that the fantastical characters the girls originally met are simply made into human sexual partners). The sex does get a bit overpowering towards the end with few points to stop and take a breather, but on a second read my opinion on that might change.

Lost of people have written reviews complaining that the book is graphic and pornographic. They have no reason to complain because the creative team have openly declared the work as pornography.

First off, if you don't already know - this is porngraphy. The authors themselves have deemed it as such and produced it in an attempt to bring some more creativity to the genre. Anyway, it's wonderfully drawn with a beautiful dreamlike quality and a compelling story.

Nevertheless you can get a review of "Lost Girls" anywhere on the net. As far as this edition is presented; if you want a copy of "Lost Girls" this is the one to get - it's a massive hard cover book (about the same size as the laptop i'm writing this on) with thick pages and an overall high quality feel to it. This edition is complete too, with books 1-3 (that's all of them) contained within.

Overall, if you you want to read "Lost Girls", whether for the first or hundredth time i highly recommend this edition - it's a bargain.

Yes, this is porn. There is very few other ways to describe this. Yes, it also does contain some very controversial subject matters. What it also contains is some truly BEAUTIFUL artwork, some very inventive storytelling that puts all three characters' stories into a real world setting, and some themes that deserve to be talked about! I'll be honest, I was just expecting it to be lots of really awful sex, because that's what a lot of people said it was. But it wasn't. Well, it kinda was, but it was more than that! I would recommend it to anyone over a certain age, just as an open and alternative look into subjects such as sexual desire and the many taboos that surround it

By S P Mead TOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Mar. 2016
Format: Hardcover
This is a different sort of graphic novel. It's certainly riské - and I like it!

This is an over-sized graphic novel (each page is larger than that of the standard comic book). It actually consists of three volumes, and as such is quite big (at some 320 pages). The art work is exquisite, often beautiful, and coloured as if with crayons. The story-telling is good, and revolves around the adventures of three main female characters: Wendy (from Peter Pan), Dorothy (from the Wizard of Oz) and Alice (from Wonderland).

It is, ultimately, a series of tales about sexual encounters. Indeed, it's more than that - as its author sought to create a work of literary pornography. And he succeeds! So much so that many American booksellers refused to stock it (considering it obscene). In Britain the book caused controversy as it depicts children in sexual imagery (nonetheless it was still published).

Having read through the book, and having flicked through it on re-visits several times, I find it to be both fascinating and entertaining. For me, the artwork is key. The "graphic" aspect of this novel exceeds and surpasses the writing itself. As such, Moore's contribution is - strangely - not primary. Rather, the images drawn by Melinda Gebbie are what make this book stand out.

It's not a first-rate graphic novel, when compared to such titles as "Watchmen" or "V For Vendetta", but it is a very good book. Certainly not something most parents would want their kids to read ... but graphic novels ought to be able to tell adult stories. And this does.

At £20 in hardback, it's a bargain.

The artwork looks like a five year old drew it, not good by today's digital standards. Dated in my opinion.

Firstly, don't let the lack of customer reviews put you off. Perhaps the reviews that USED TO BE HERE have vanished down the Memory Hole.
Lost Girls is a collaboration between arguably the best comic book writer of all time, Alan Moore, and his now-wife Melinda Gebbie. It took 16 years to complete, and upon reading, you can see why. It's incredibly well-written, detailed, and once you get past the initial "naked cartoons" shock, you can enjoy it for what it is - a wonderfully imaginative piece of art.
"Lost Girls" has its critics, and they're entitled to their opinions, but for those of us who enjoyed it, why should we be ashamed? Why should our reviews be taken down? Yes, there are very graphic images in this book, but it goes much, much deeper into exploring relationships (such as the ageing woman obsessed with her younger self, and the married couple whose only sexual relationship is one enjoyed by their shadows).
Please, don't let the apparent lack of support for this work put you off enjoying a beautifully drawn, beautifully scripted piece of art that will be talked about for many years.
