Synopses & Reviews
Alan Moore, the best-selling graphic novelist of all time, delivers an original dystopian fairy tale set against the backdrop of nuclear winter. Alan Moore’s 1985 time-lost screenplay written with Malcolm McLaren (Sex Pistols) is finally brought to life as a graphic novel.
Doll was unfulfilled in her life as a coat checker of a trendy club. But when she is fired from the job and auditions to become a “mannequin” for a reclusive designer, the life of glamour she always imagined is opened before her. She soon discovers that the house of Celestine is as dysfunctional as the clothing that define the classes of this dystopian world. And she soon discovers that the genius of the designer is built upon a terrible lie that has influence down to the lowliest citizen. This unique retelling of Beauty and the Beast was written in 1985 alongside Alan Moore’s comics redefining work on Watchmen. Beautifully illustrated by Facundo Perico (Anna Mercury) and meticulously adapted by Antony Johnston (Yuggoth Cultures), this is another entry in the graphic novel masterworks library by Alan Moore.
