Overview

  • Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Coraline, American Gods) brings shock rocker Alice Cooper's concept album to life in a surreal sideshow of the soul! Join a young boy named Steven on a surreal journey of the soul, as an enigmatic and potentially dangerous Showman seduces him into joining his carnival.
  • Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this seminal Gaiman work, returned to print for the first time in over a decade. Fully remastered in color, this
    Deluxe Edition incorporates complete scripts to all three chapters,
    black-and-white thumbnail art of pre-colored pages, an original outline of the project by Neil Gaiman, and a collection of letters between shock rocker Alice
    Cooper and the author!
  • “I’m really happy that The Last Temptation is coming out for a new generation of readers, who have not seen Michael Zulli’s glorious drawings, or know of the Showman and his wicked ways,” says Neil
    Gaiman. “I wrote this a long time ago, driven by love of Ray
    Bradbury’s dark carnivals and of Alice Cooper’s own pandemonium shadow show. It’s time for it to shuffle out onto a leaf-covered street and meet the people who don’t know about Stephen and Mercy and show what’s coming to town.”

This collection contains not only the graphic novel, but also letters between the author and Alice Cooper, pre-coloured artwork, the outline and rough draft scripts for the project. I knew nothing of the original when I agreed to review this arc. It is an engaging tale, Steven is an ordinary young boy who is not quite sure of his place but leads a fairly unremarkable life. One day on the way home from school, he and his friends come across a mysterious theatre, the ‘Theatre of the Real’ and the strangely flamboyant Showman – this is where Copper comes in. The story itself is quite a short one, but the extras make up for that and turn it into a big bumper pack of delight for both long term fans and newbies. Recommended for fans of the very prolific Neil Gaiman, Michael Zulli, and Alice Cooper, in particular, but suitable for all graphic novel lovers. This turned into a non-review, review, didn’t it.
