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 fairy tales, 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. HC, 9x12, 352pgs, FC SRP: $49.99
Lost Girls,eh? The "controversial" part of the
bunf might be referring to how Top Shelf (the Lost Girls publisher back before
they were swallowed up by IDW hit a snag: At least in Great Britain and the
Commonwealth, JM Barrie's work (some of his Peter Pan characters are featured
in Lost Girls) had not yet cleared copyright, and Alan Moore had not sought permission
to use the characters from Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital (which had
inherited the rights) Top Shelf said "Who cares?", but Diamond said
"We care. We care about creator's rights, and Barrie said control of his
characters belongs to the hospital. The copyright's still in effect in Great
Britain and the Commonwealth, so we won't ship there. It's against the law.
I guess the copyright's finished in the UK and Commonwealth now, because Diamond's not showing any restrictions...

(W) Matt Kindt, Eric Heisserer (A) Tomas Giorello (CA) J. G. Jones
THE SEISMIC COMICS EVENT OF 2018 STARTS HERE!
From New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR. DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and superstar artist Tomas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR), the most powerful Valiant event ever attempted erupts in full force as X-O Manowar, Livewire, the Harbinger Renegades, Bloodshot, the Secret Weapons, Ninjak, and a cast of thousands draw their battle lines in HARBINGER WARS 2!
For the rare and immensely powerful subset of humanity known as psiots, their unique abilities have come with an enormous cost. Once, their existence was known only to a select few. Now, the revelation that thousands of these latent telekinetic "harbingers" secretly live among us with the potential to become active at any moment has led the American government to a dramatic tipping point
Armed with new extra-governmental authority, the deep-black military contractor known as Omen has been authorized to identify, evaluate, and, if need be, eliminate all super-normal threats to the homeland. H.A.R.D. Corps units have been deployed into cities and towns across the United States to enforce their orders.
In the West, Livewire - the telekinetic technopath with the ability to bend machines and computers to her will - will be forced to choose between her former allies or her newfound team of Secret Weapons. As the situation escalates beyond human control, the United States will be plunged into darkness from coast to coast, launching Bloodshot and Ninjak into a dangerous mission to neutralize their one-time teammate - and setting the stage for the most shocking, most violent, and most consequential clash of powers ever witnessed in the history of the Valiant Universe!

The Harbinger Renegades have been scattered across America battered by the brutal MASSACRE that decimated their ranks.

An EMPEROR no more, X-O Manowar has returned to Earth heralding a colossal realignment of powers in his wake. And, behind them all, Livewire - leader of the Harbinger Foundation's most unusual group of SECRET WEAPONS - is about to incite the coast-to-coast clash that bring them all together in an inescapable collision of power.
Pushed to the brink by the government she once served, Toyo Harada's former star pupil is about to make an irreversible decision and deactivate America's power supply in a last-ditch bid to save the extraordinary individuals called "psiots" from extinction.
