The Ballad of Halo Jones

A new edition of The Ballad of Halo Jones by Alan Moore and Ian Gibson is now out from 2000AD (£13.99). Lauren Beukes provides an introduction, in which she says that Halo Jones was a major influence on her (Beukes’) childhood.

“When Halo Jones grows bored with her life in The Hoop — a 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 ship-board servitude and a tour of duty in a terrifying war that defies the physics of space and time?”
