Ballad of Halo Jones - Book 02
A masterpiece of British comics, Alan Moore and Ian Gibson’s space-opera, now in stunning colour from Barbara Nosenzo, tells the story of Halo Jones, from her humble beginnings to her galaxy-spanning adventure. This volume collects book two of the series.
Where did she go? Out. What did she do? Everything...
Bored and frustrated with her life in 50th-century leisure-ghetto housing estate ‘The Hoop’, 18-year-old everywoman Halo Jones yearns for the infinite sights and sounds of the universe. Pledging to escape on a fantastic voyage, she sets in motion events unimaginable; a spell on a luxury space-liner, a brush with an interstellar war – Halo Jones faces hardship and adventure in the name of freedom in the limitless cosmos.
A galaxy-spanning story, comics’ first bona fide feminist space opera, and the first true epic to grace the bibliography of arguably the greatest comic book writer the world has ever known.
