The Originals: The Essential Edition
Deluxe edition of the Eisner Award-winning mod sci-fi coming-of-age graphic novel from Dave Gibbons, co-creator of Watchmen. Includes 32 pages of never-before-seen development art, process pieces, and behind the scenes extras—all annotated by Gibbons.
In a retro-futuristic city of industrial gray where hover scooters, music, and drugs rule the street, the Originals are the toughest, most stylish gang around. For two childhood friends, nothing is more important than being one of them. But being part of the crowd will bring its own deadly consequences.
The only graphic novel that Dave Gibbons has written and drawn. An Eisner Award winner!

"The Originals is Dave Gibbons doing what he was born to do: telling a story that's all his own, and telling it with grace, verve, and drama. The result is, well . . . original! Top-notch comics."—Frank Miller
