SDCC 2013: The 20th Anniversary of The Last Temptation Fully Remastered
Dynamite has announcesd that The Last Temptation, the groundbreaking graphic novel collaboration between bestselling author Neil Gaiman and rock music icon Alice Cooper with art by Michael Zulli, will return in a fully-remastered Deluxe Edition printing. The new edition celebrates the 20th anniversary of the project, the first printing since its original Marvel run to be presented in color. Dynamite makes this announcement to coincide with Neil Gaiman’s appearance this week as a Special Guest at San Diego Comic-Con International 2013.
The Last Temptation graphic novel was originally released in three serialized installments in 1994 as a companion to the Alice Cooper album of the same name. In the story, a boy named Steven (who was previously introduced as a character from Cooper’s album, Welcome to My Nightmare) is tempted by an enigmatic showman — based on Cooper — to join his carnival. Written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Michael Zulli, The Last Temptation was originally published by Marvel Comics, but has been out of print for over a decade.
