Description

John Difool, a low-class detective in a degenerate dystopian world, finds his life turned upside down when he discovers an ancient, mystical artefact called The Incal. Difool's adventures bring him into conflict with the galaxy's greatest warrior, the Metabaron, and pit him against the awesome powers of the Technopope. These encounters and many more make up a tale of comic and cosmic proportions. Visionary storyteller Jodorowsky's epic mythology and the late Moebius's incredible art blend perfectly for this legendary spiritual space adventure series.

Review quote

"The Incal isn't a book you just read. It's a science fiction book you experience. A true classic in every sense of the world. It's ingenious. And it's bonkers!... A+" - Forces of Geek "Whether you believe this or not, this is an important piece of work, historically and artistically, and should be read by all comic fans. " - BackwardsCompatible.co.uk "The Incal deserves its place at the top table of comic greatness alongside the best the medium has to offer. 5/5" - SFX Magazine "The Incal is entrancing...It crackles with invention: if you like your sci-fi, you'll love this." - The Guardian "The Incal Is The Greatest Comic That You Probably Haven't Read..." - Nothing But Comics "Moebius was a master, a rare talent of nuclear-powered imagination, and with few peers in his craft." - Kamloops This Week "It's one of the great comics team-ups..." - Rolling Stone

About Alexandro Jodorowsky

Alejandro Jodorowsky (also known as Alexandro Jodorowsky) is a Chilean film and theatre director, screenwriter, playwright, actor, comic book writer, author, poet, mime, musician, and spiritual guru. He is best known for his avant-garde, cult films, such as "El Topo," a midnight movie favorite. Jean Giraud aka Moebius was a French artist, cartoonist, and writer, who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinees tradition. Giraud earned worldwide fame, predominantly under the pseudonym Moebius, which he used to create a wide range of science fiction and fantasy comics in a highly imaginative and surreal, almost abstract style. Esteemed by Federico Fellini, Stan Lee and Hayao Miyazaki, among many others, he is considered as the most influential bande dessinee artist, and a continued influence to filmmakers and artists around the world.
