Overview

Visionary designer and comics creator Dean Motter (Mister X, Electropolis, Batman: Nine Lives) returns with the purest expression to date of his patented retro futurism! Terminal City is a place where transistor-tube robots rub elbows with old-time gangsters, where bright, shiny technologies cast deep noir shadows. Teaming Motter with celebrated artist Michael Lark (Daredevil, Gotham Central), this massive collection reprints the original series, along with its sequel, Terminal City: Aerial Graffiti! * All fourteen issues of the classic series, collected for the first time! * Eisner-and Harvey Award-nominated series! This is one of the best marriages of story and art I've seen in years and an absolute delight to read. -Alex Ross, artist of Marvels and Kingdom Come

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This collection brings together for the first time issues 1�9 of Terminal City and 1�5 of Terminal City: Aerial Graffiti, and pairs the exemplary storytelling of Motter (Mister X, Electropolis) with the brilliant artwork of Lark (Daredevil, Gotham Central). The story, set in and around the environs of Terminal City, is an example of retro-futurism at its visual narrative best—as though all of the ideas of the 1920s and ’30s about what the 1980s would be like have come to pass. At the center of the story is Cosmo Quinn, a human fly who hangs up his daredevil costume and becomes—fittingly enough—a window washer. Motter creates a cast of colorful characters who are eminently human, which perhaps explains why we are so drawn to their stories. Lark’s vision never flags through all the strange happenings. The series’ Harvey and Eisner award nominations were well earned. (Mar.)
