Part II of The Dark Child Trilogy Maeve longs for the exciting,
fast-paced life of the big city. However, she has a greater destiny
ahead of her.
While travelling on a train, Maeve is attacked by a servant of The Dark
Disciple but is rescued in time by none other than M and J (Two Hot
Girls On A Hot Summers Night). The duo have been guided there by the
goddess and Maeve takes refuge with them.
“Communing” with a pagan witch wasn’t enough and, under M and Js
tutelage, Maeve finds herself in Otherworld and becoming lover of the
Drawn by “The British Manara”, David Gordon, this was his first graphic novel and it abounds in adult
adventures in bondage, action and much much more.
STRICTLY ADULTS ONLY
Sadly, not allowed to show the more, uh, "racy" images as this is a family friendly site. However, the low res scanned pages that follow are some nice tasters. As noted, this was David Gordon's first ever graphic novel and he turned the work in so fast -even if his eye-sight was failing through research!
This is the official, Hooper-Gordon published book along with text feature so DO NOT accept lesser copies from any other publisher. Like Two Hot Girls this was a best seller because it was not just for "clunk heads" as the Eros editor called his readers!
And although Maeve is a stand alone book, you can get volumes I and II
in one complete book in the same format but 171 pages for £15:

la maniera per conoscere sé stessi.

A partire dalla lettura dell'albo di Alex Cousseau e Kitty
Crowther, Dentro me (Topipittori 2008),
il laboratorio esplora, l'idea di identità, la scoperta di sé,
attraverso le proprie emozioni ma anche la propria storia e i propri
desideri. Cosa c’è dentro ognuno di noi?

Mark Millar comments “This is a fantastic opportunity for fans of
KICK-ASS 2 and anyone with a talent for cartooning or a passion
for comic books to be involved in the creation of an exciting piece of
art. My favourite scene in the movie that I’d love to see recreated is
Hit-Girl versus Mother Russia in the final act.
The reason I like it so much is because we're seeing Hit-Girl, who's
always been the bad-ass of the franchise, up against someone she's
slightly scared of. The fight doesn't disappoint either and I loved
seeing Hit-Girl really showing us what she's capable
of. I can’t wait to see the various interpretations of the scene – and
who knows, perhaps we’ll even find the next John Romita Jr.”
