"The release of Alan D. Oldham's long-awaited return to full-length comics with The Sexy Adventures of Orietta St. Cloud and the debut of his new Pure Comics imprint. In development for over five years, often drawn on jet planes between DJ tours and recording sessions, Orietta is the first-ever full-color comic book from Oldham (also known as DJ/producer DJ T-1000), the man best known for his legendary label art for the Netherlands-based Djax-Up-Beats label. The soundtrack is comprised of some of the biggest talents in techno, who all generously agreed to provide original music at a fraction of their normal fees. The stellar line-up of Jeff Mills, The Advent, Stewart Walker, Bryan Zentz and Italy's Marco Passarani all were sent individual pages of the comic and composed music based on their impressions of the art and story. Due to his relentless tour schedule (and production of his new DE9:CE mix CD), Richie Hawtin was unable to compose something new, but his contribution as Plastikman, 'PKamb', has never appeared on CD, and perfectly captures the menace of Earth-to-moon deep space travel. Terrence Dixon's 'Into Sub-Luna' was licensed from his album From The Far Future and also chosen for its cinematic value. Four tracks were also composed and produced by the multi-talented Alan Oldham himself."
