LULU by John Linton Roberson. Based on the plays of Frank Wedekind. "Own this beautiful thing."
Steve Pugh, artist of Hotwire, Animal Man, Invaders, Hellblazer, Crisis.

"LULU is a serious work. But one in no way pompous. The story explores the power dynamic of sex and gender. Dark undercurrents pervade it. It requires and assumes emotional intelligence of its reader – and an understanding of the medium skilfully employed to tell it...
Generally these days most comic books fail to enthuse me. It’s not the medium it’s the message. More power to John Linton Roberson for ploughing his deviant furrow." (read more here)

Jamie Delano, writer of Hellblazer, Outlaw Nation, 2020 Visions and more.

"LULU translates into graphic storytelling terms Wedekind’s meditation on sexual repression and its role in facilitating exploitative seduction with all its disturbing ferocity intact."
Martin Pasko, writer of Action Comics, Batman: the Animated Series, E-Man, Saga of the Swamp Thing, and Wonder Woman.

You might think she's a femme fatale. But then you'd have it backwards.
