Taboo [magazine]

Short-lived squarebound Comics magazine (7 issues 1988-1994) created by artists Steven Bissette and John Totleben (1958-    ) and published by Spiderbaby Graphics, with some surprisingly uninhibited contents. Early issues featured strips by Bissette, S Clay Wilson, Paul Chadwick and Moebius, but T was remarkable mainly because it featured the first publication of some works by Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman. The most important of these were the early episodes of Moore's Dickensian Jack the Ripper graphic novel From Hell and his erotica, Lost Girls. [RT]
