When Halo Jones grows bored with her life in The Hoop - the futuristic world where jobs are scarce and excitement is non-existent - she sets out to see the galaxy any way she can. But can she survive the highs and lows that lie in her path, including an extended period of shipboard servitude and a tour of duty in a terrifying war that defies the physics of space and time?
A classic from early 2000 AD, Alan Moore and Ian Gibson's Halo Jones was remarkable at the time both for the unusual storytelling (touching on still very relevant issues such as gender, morality, poverty, opportunity and equality) and for having such a strong female lead, and remains a terrific piece of comics storytelling, a Brit classic that should be on your shelves. This new edition comes with an introduction by the Arthur C Clarke award winning author Lauren Beukes and a newly designed cover by Pye Parr.
