Top Shelf Productions and Knockabout Comics will release an expanded edition of Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie’s erotic graphic novel Lost Girls. The adults-only hardcover collects all three volumes of the original release with an additional 32 pages of new artwork and commentary. The 352-page Lost Girls Expanded Edition will be in stores in July. MSRP for the shrink-wrapped volume is $49.99.

The story centers on the sexual awakening and fulfillment of three characters from classic literature: Alice (Alice in Wonderland), Wendy Darling (Peter Pan), and Dorothy Gale (The Wizard of Oz).

The erotic graphic novel debuted in a three-volume slipcase in August 2006, and despite the controversial content and the hefty price tag of $75, it sold out of the initial print run of 10,000 copies at the distributor on day of release (see “'Lost Girls' Sold Out”). By early January 2007, it was in its third printing with 35,000 copies sold (see 'Lost Girls at 35K'). Export to Europe was delayed until the first of January due to an amicably-settled copyright dispute over the depiction of Wendy Darling (see “'Lost Girls' Cross Border” and “'Lost Girls' Hits Europe”).
