Twenty-five years to the day since Alan Moore's stunning space opera, The Ballad of Halo Jones, came to an end, American audiences can now enjoy this all-time classic from an indisputable comic book legend - along with extra material exclusive for the US.

A must-have in Moore's oeuvre, Halo Jones represents one of the most human, profound and complex tales the Watchmen and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen writer ever produced.

When it came to a premature end in legendary British comic book 2000 AD® on 19th April 1986 - another six chapters were planned but never written - Moore left behind a story that has captivated readers ever since.

With breathtaking artwork from Ian Gibson, The Ballad of Halo Jones is a multi-layered character-driven tale of a young woman stuck in a bleak futuristic New York who sets out to explore the galaxy by any means - whether serving onboard a star cruiser or fighting in warzones that defy physics.

This edition, exclusive to the US, includes pages from Moore's original typewritten scripts for Halo Jones - presented as they appeared at the time - as well as covers and a Gibson pin-up.
