The Ballad of Halo Jones

The Ballad of Halo Jones was a 1980s science fiction comic strip written by Alan Moore and drawn by Ian Gibson, with lettering by Steve Potter (Books 1 & 2) and Richard Starkings (Book 3).
Halo Jones first appeared July 1984 in five-page instalments in the pages of the weekly British comic 2000AD. An overt attempt to bring a female perspective to that notoriously testosterone-fuelled publication, it was embraced by readers of both genders and is regarded as one of the high points of 2000 AD, as well as one of Moore's first significant works The eponymous heroine is a highly sympathetic 50th-century everywoman, and the tone of the strip runs from the comic to the poignant. The three "books" span more than ten years of her life, and also serve as a tour of the well-realised futuristic universe which Moore and Gibson created. Originally, Halo Jones was to have run to nine books, chronicling Halo's life from adolescence through old age, however the series stopped after three because of a dispute between Moore and Fleetway, the magazine's publishers, over the intellectual property rights of the characters he and Gibson had co-created.
