Price: 3.99

Fashion Beast, I’m assured, is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast in a dystopian future under the threat of nuclear winter. It’s the comic book adaptation, by long time collaborator Antony Johnston, of an unpublished, unfilmed screenplay Alan Moore wrote in the 1980s with Malcolm McLaren, architect of the Sex Pistols and the New York Dolls, beautifully illustrated by Facundo Percio. James Baldwin once wrote ‘love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within’ and this will no doubt be realised over the course of 10 issues. This first issue, however, is too brief a glimpse of things to come.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 4 - Very Good
