About this title:
Available for the first time in a deluxe collectors' edition, The Ballad of Halo Jones is Alan Moore's epic story of a girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. Meet Halo Jones. She wasn't anyone special. She wasn't brave, or clever, or strong. She was just somebody who had to get out. Escaping the Hoop, Manhattan Island's land of mindless leisure, is just the first step in a cosmic adventure that takes Halo to the far ends of the galaxy, through war and peace, trial, despair and triumph. But as she said: "Anybody could have done it." Beautifully illustrated by Ian Gibson, this is the ultimate sci-fi opus, a story of one woman's search for her place in a galaxy out of control.
