31 Days of Halloween: Neil Gaiman’s Last Temptation starring Alice Cooper

Layout 1

About 20 years ago, Neil Gaiman was mostly known as The Sandman Guy. He was as beloved as ever but it was just before he became one of the work’s bets known authors. ONE of his projects of the time was THE LAST TEMPTATIOn, based on a theme album by horror rock icon Alice Cooper. Illustrated by Michael Zulli, the themes of the album fit in well with Gaiman’s work: a boy named Steven leaves from home only to meet up with the Showman and his Theatre of the Real. Buying a ticket to the show is buying a ticket to a nightmare.

Beautifully drawn by Zulli, and published by Marvel’s bizarre Music Line (there was also a Billy Ray Cyrus comic by Paul S. Newman, Dan Barry, and Gail Beckett) this oddity is being brought back by Dynamite in a limited edition Hardcover Remarked edition, signed by Gaiman and remarked by Zulli, with the art remastered and colored by David Curiel at InLight Studios. The book is available in an edition of only 200, with bonus material including all three scripts to the book, the original outline, and Neil Gaiman’s original correspondence with
Alice Cooper.
