Set Includes 3 Volumes (with Slipcase) - 1st printings.

For more than a century, Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy have been our guides through the Wonderland, Neverland, and Land of Oz of our childhoods. Now, like us, these three lost girls have grown up and are ready to guide us again, this time through the realms of our sexual awakening and fulfillment. Through their familiar fairytales they share with us their most intimate revelations of desire in its many forms... revelations that shine out radiantly through the dark clouds of war gathering around a luxury Austrian hotel. Drawing on the rich heritage of erotica, Lost Girls is the rediscovery of the power of ecstatic writing and art in a sublime union that only the medium of comics can achieve. Exquisite, thoughtful, and human, Lost Girls is a work of breathtaking scope that challenges the very notion of art fettered by convention. This is erotic fiction at its finest. Written and visualized by Alan Moore, the visionary behind Watchmen, From Hell, and V for Vendetta!

OK, some will balk at the premise. We all know Dodgson's Alice, Baum's Dorothy, and Barrie's Wendy as little girls, in the familiar fictions built around them. This takes the fiction a step beyond, imagining the girls as grown women, thrown together in an isolated resort on the eve of the first world war. Alice, the grande dame, stands aloof from political unpleasantness. Wendy is wed to an industrialist more interested in armored boat hulls than in breakfast (or in her). Dorothy appears as a plain old farm girl, who can't imagine that grand duke Ferdinand might affect her little life. Geographically isolated at this odd resort and culturally isolated by their individual circumstance, they break their personal isolation in each others' company.

They succeed, and break each others' inhibitions as well. With Moore's script and Gebbie's delicate colors, we follow a delightful debauch. Alice takes the two younger ladies under her opium-scented wing, for languidly choreographed affections of the sapphic kind. Dorothy brings her farm-girl awareness of livestock breeding to her human relations, male and female. Wendy, the ignored housewife, blossoms under any attention at all. Other characters round out the goings-on with straight, gay, and solo loving. The happy and consensual tone could appeal to readers who've been turned off by harsher kinds of erotica, and Gebbie's delicate artwork treats it all with lucious respect.

Make no mistake, this is smut. Decide whether that's what you want. It's good smut, though, of a female-friendly kind - the kind that also appeals to men tired of all that negative imagery. If you often find your genitals requesting the company and comfort of your hands, this could be a story for them to read to each other.

I had an idea of what to expect from _Lost Girls_ given the reviews on Amazon: a re-telling of _Alice in Wonderland_, _The Wizard of Oz_ and _Peter Pan_ from the perspective of Wendy, Alice and Dorothy as adults, and with an understanding that the book is "erotica." Mostly I was interested in how Alan Moore would handle the stories. I have very mixed feelings about the book.

Moore was typically clever - I loved the allusions (both in dialogue and in artwork), from the setting of the story where the girls meet (a resort in Austria called "Himmelgarten" - "Heavenly Garden" - "Eden", perhaps?) to references to Robert Graves (Good-Bye to All That) and Oscar Wilde (The Picture of Dorian Gray (Modern Library Classics)). As each character told their story, the artwork similarly changed: with Alice, images were portrayed in an oval (as a mirror), Wendy images through silhouettes (as in a picture book), and with Dorothy with wide panoramic expanses. Stylistically there are elements of pointillism, abstract expressionism and art nouveau - all in keeping with the time period in which the story is set (summer, 1914). Of course Moore couldn't resist subtle word play, which I also immensely enjoyed - a soldier with a foot fetish, was described as "Boots, boots, boots, boots, marching up and down again ... having to start at the bottom, all that spit and polish, I wouldn't want to be in his shoes." The artwork similarly had its playful elements, as a stodgy British couple, with typical Victorian attitudes politely looking away as one slips into a nightgown, and gingerly kissing each other goodnight, the artwork juxtaposed into a more lewd reference - a suggestion of what each may be really thinking beneath their "proper" behaviour.

The creative license Moore took with the stories was also intriguing - although understandably disturbing to some. The idea that Wendy's experiences were a sexual awakening with a street urchin (her "Peter"), that Dorothy's tin man, scarecrow and cowardly lion were farm hands with whom she had various sexual laisons, (the "wizard" was particularly suprising) or that Alice's journey "through the looking glass" was her self-discovery of her budding sexuality certainly shade the way in which I think about these classics. As Wendy put it, "It is magic, isn't it, the time before we were all properly grown up? Its all so shadowy and wild."

In fact, it was precisely the nature of the "shadowy and wild" parts of the story that I didn't care much for; the sex (and I'm all for sex, don't get me wrong) was a bit over the top. So much so, that I began to wonder if the purpose of the book was to re-invent these stories or to merely titilate. Regarding the broader story being told, the girls are vacationing in the summer of 1914, and the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Sophie figure into the story as a way of pointing out the changes Europe is undergoing (specifically sexually, but also in the myriad of other ways in which the world was transformed as a result of the conflict.) Had this been more developed - even subtly as Moore has demonstrated he can do, I think the book would have been much better. Instead it is an entertaining (if somewhat disturbing) story with a strong sexual content that exists largely to serve its own purposes. I'd pass on this one.
Lonesome Orange Kid
In all honesty, I was very excited about this book, but it didn't wow me. It reminded me of the city of New Orleans. The first few sets of [boo bs] are amazing, but by the end of the night, it is nothing new. Lost Girls is like that. First issue really gets going, but then the sex becomes almost commonplace and you don't even notice it anymore. Lots of clever literary easter eggs for those that like to search. Also plenty of illustrations for the people who want to pleasure themselves to comics. Otherwise, very risque, very clever, didn't rock my world.

Re-readability: 6/10

*I always put re-readability in my reviews for people who like to keep their TPB to re-read*
A must-read for anyone who can handle it -- this is not "erotica," this is porn. The stories and illustrations are EXTREMELY graphic. Some of them are unbelievably hot, some are unbelievably disturbing, many are both. Not all the sex in this book is fun.

It's also a brilliant piece of literature. What Moore did previously with League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, he does again here, on a grander and more ambitious scale. He deconstructs these tales with a ruthlessness that is both horrifying and inspired.
Okay, okay, so I bought this book because I'm a huge fan of the fairy tale classics (especially Peter Pan) and honestly, I was kind of expecting a series of erotic stories based in those classic plot lines. It's not. So if you're looking for that, venture onward because you won't find it here. But, if you're looking for a series of wild adventures and new perspectives on how those classic plot lines were found it!

Lost Girls is definitely something WAY out there! It's wild, it's crazy, it's fantastic in my opinion! Unlike some others on here that critique the artwork, I commend it! It's illustrated like an old storybook that you might find in an antique store. The artwork is imaginary, seductive, and very extensive when things get heated up.

Lost Girls has found it's place on my bookshelf...I just gotta make sure it's high enough where my kids can't reach it.
