(W) Dean Motter  (A) Michael Lark

Visionary designer and comics creator Dean Motter (Mister X, Electropolis, Batman: Nine Lives) returns with the purest expression to date of his patented retro futurism! Terminal City is a place where transistor-tube robots rub elbows with old-time gangsters, where bright, shiny technologies cast deep noir shadows.
Teaming Motter with celebrated artist Michael Lark (Daredevil, Gotham Central), this massive collection reprints the original series, along with its sequel, Terminal City: Aerial Graffiti!

Dean Motter's epic noir-deco masterpiece is finally collected in its entirety! Published by Vertigo in the midish 90's, Terminal City was one those stories that put you on the streets of this Metropolis influenced city that combines 1940s gangster movies and Tezuka manga, creating a perfect blend of retro-futurism that has made Dean Motter such a unique voice in comics for many years. Also the creator of Mr.X, Motter's sense of design and intricate storytelling will transport you to an age found only in the dreams of those who wish to live in the past, but are doomed to exist in the present; leaving no option but to create their own future.
