One of 2000 AD‘s most groundbreaking and moving stories, the three books of The Ballad of Halo Jones are now 50% off in the 2000 AD webshop.

A masterpiece of British comics, Alan Moore and Ian Gibson’s space-opera, now with stunning colour from Barbara Nosenzo, tells the story of Halo Jones, from her humble beginnings to her galaxy-spanning adventure.


Where did she go? Out. What did she do? Everything…

When Halo Jones grows bored with her life in The Hoop — a futuristic slum where jobs are scarce and excitement is non-existent — she yearns to escape and see the galaxy. But in a city where dangerous riots happen at the slightest provocation and even going to the shops is an ordeal requiring careful planning and a handful of zen-inducing-grenades, the price of freedom might prove to be more than she bargained for!
