- Full Description
In the "Euro-Comics" style, from its suggestive, sexy art to its way-futuristic storyline. "...jaw-dropping" and "Dazzling science fiction." Lush, animation-style comics from two Disney animators, in the vein of Blacksad. When Noa the Sky Doll is liberated from her life of drudgery, it turns out that she is more than just a pretty android built for pleasure.
Plus 33 superlative full page pin-up drawings, "homages," by Claire Wendling (2), Guezav, Pierre-Mony Chan, Lostfish and many others. Many feature nudity.
This hot comic was first published in Italy from 2000 to 2010, created by Disney animators Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa. This brings together three of the original stories, plus a prequel, "Doll's Factory," as well as a separate story, "Heaven Dolls."
With religion, sensuality and what it means to be human all at stake, Noa must find her true purpose in life.
The series follows the story of Noa, a Sky Doll with an unusual personality who seems connected with the religious Agape. The story takes place in the framework of a large conflict. Agape has been banished, resulting in Lodovica coming into power and controlling the galaxy. Noa, an android who serves the state's desires, becomes entangled on a mission to destabilize the Agape followers. However, as the series progresses, we see that Noa is not just an ordinary Sky Doll.
232 pages of stories and bonus content. This series has become increasingly popular in the 15 years since its creation. Titan Comics is allowing English fans a great jumping on point to the series, with 10 years' worth of Skydoll stories in one collection. The popularity of the series can be seen in the "Homages" section of the collection, which shows artistic tributes to the series.
