Artfully zipping back and forth between the ancient tale of Fey Brith, the freshest flower of the Iron Devil Brothel, and the modern story of Tristi Joie, spunky turn-of-the-millennium New York City hooker, The Iron Devil is the legendary Frank Thorne's most ambitious and most XXX-treme erotic masterpiece. (His only genuinely hardcore work!) Created back in the early 1990s, The Iron Devil was released once as a softcover over 10 years ago and quicky sold out; this deluxe hardcover collects not just the original Iron Devil but its never before collected three-issue sequel The Devil's Angel, including the amazing satirical concluding issue in which a porn bust causes just about all of Thorne's characters to line up and engage in a no-holds-barred battle with the forces of intolerance and obscurantism, including hilarious, thinly disguised parodies of some major political figures! As a bonus the original black-and-white-and-gray art has been colorized into deep, scrumptious duotones that give a whole new sparkle to what is some of the most amazing work of Thorne's career. Includes a new essay from Thorne about the notorious 'Iron Devil bust,' a new introduction by Eros editor Ryder Windham (who has a major starring role in the comic), and 'Thorne's Roses,' a look back at Thorne's other femmes fatales from Red Sonja and Ghita through Lann and Moonshine McJugs to Fey and Tristi. 160-page 6' x 9' duotone hardcover.
