Lost Girls Signing Next Week -- If you're anywhere near Northern California next Wednesday, August 2nd, and you're 18 or over, and you love good comics, you'll be at Lee's Comics in Mountain View (here's a handy map).

Artist Melinda Gebbie will be at the Mountain View Lee's Comics, signing her massive new graphic novel Lost Girls, written by Alan Moore.

The scoop:

Meet Melinda Gebbie, artist and co-creator of the new Alan Moore Graphic Novel masterpiece "Lost Girls" in an exclusive Bay Area appearance!

Melinda will be chatting with her fans, and signing copies of Lost Girls. It's a stunning full color three volume deluxe hardcover box set that has been 16 years in the making.

Lost Girls is an erotic adult fairy tale featuring Alice, Wendy and Dorothy. It is a thoughtful, and humanistic masterpiece that is bound to become a touchstone in modern literature.

Alan Moore is considered by many to be the greatest writer in comics. His Watchmen Graphic Novel is listed as one of the top English language books by Time Magazine. His Graphic Novels have been made into movies of various quality. (His graphic novels are much better!) Now comes his newest masterpiece, Lost Girls, which he co-created with his life, partner Melinda Gebbie. It’s bound to be controversial to some and celebrated by many more. Here’s a rare chance to meet Melinda and get your copy signed.

Plan on attending! 18 or older, please.

Lost Girls (my review is here) is one of the most important releases of the decade, representing fifteen years of work by Moore and Gebbie, the end result being an intoxicating rumination on sex, violence, war and regret. Anyone 18 or older with an interest in comics will be stunned by what the book accomplishes, and the fantastic production values courtesy of publisher Top Shelf Productions are nothing to sneeze at, either. It's an expensive comic, but as Tom Spurgeon likes to say, "The only comics that are too expensive are shitty comics." Lost Girls is about as far away from shitty comics as you can get.

Be sure to stop into Lee's Comics, and help support a great graphic novel, a gifted artist, and a visionary comics shop.
