The Meat Cake Bible

by Dame Darcy Author and Alan Moore Contributor

A great work of gothic Gen X feminist punk weirdness, this comics collection spans 20 years of the neo-Victorian horror/humor/romance comic Meat Cake. Fractured fairy tales alternate with adventures starring characters of Dame Darcy's own invention, the likes of whom you'll never meet elsewhere. Like peeking into a deranged dollhouse, Meat Cake collects every story from the 17 issues that ran from 1993 to 2008. Includes "Hungry Is the Heart," a collaboration with Alan Moore and stories that would have graced the never-published issue #18.
