Literate Porn

After dinner with B&K this evening I read book 1 of the Lost Girls. So far I have to agree with Neil Gaiman "It succeeded for me wonderfully as a true graphic novel. If it failed for me, it was as smut. The book ... was not a one-handed read. It was too heady and strange to appreciate or to experience on a visceral level. (Your mileage may vary; porn is, after all, personal.) Top Shelf has chosen to package it elegantly and expensively, presenting it to the world not as pornography, but as erotica."

As a graphic novel it is visually innovative and engaging. As porn it is only mildly interesting.

I think I've read Book 1; I know I haven't read the complete series and I really, really want to. I mean, I love Alan Moore, I have always had a connection with Alice/Lewis Carrol, and, well, I love erotica. So what's not to love? :)
