Dubbed “possibly the first feminist heroine in comics”, the ground-breaking series by Alan Moore and Ian Gibson – The Ballad of Halo Jones – is now available in a new edition with an introduction by the author Clarke Award-winning novel Zoo City and The Shining Girls, Lauren Beukes.

Set in a future where the unemployed are herded into the Hoop, a floating ghetto off the coast of Manhattan, Halo is a young woman who dreams of escaping her boring life. When she gets the chance to do so aboard a luxury space cruiser as a hostess, it catapults her into an uncaring galaxy that will take her from the lap of luxury to a time-bending war of atrocity. This gorgeous new UK edition includes a brand new design-led cover by 2000 AD head designer Simon Parr.
