Overview

All that remains of a prosperous, warm planet destroyed by the madness of its inhabitants many years ago, a living piece of metal, adrift in the cosmos, howling in its infinite sorrow...sometimes, crossing the sky of one of the countless inhabited planets, it shares its sorrow with a conscious being.
Alexandro Jodorowsky (The Incal, The Metabarons), collaborating here with an international panoply of artists, including J.H. Williams III (Promethea, Batwoman) and Adi Granov (Iron Man), steps up to the challenge of the short graphic novel story format.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Audiences familiar with ‘2000AD’ will immediately find solace in this text; yet the book also succeeds as a solid introduction for those not familiar with either the anthologized narrative format or even Jodorowsky's writing."
- GraphicNovelReporter.com
"Just calling this a regular anthology would be unfair. ‘Screaming Planet’ puts together one of Europe’s visionary writers with a regular who’s who of artistic talent. Jodorowsky seamlessly steps out of his long term serial comfort zone and delivers some distinctive short stories playing to the strengths of his artists who all get their moment in the sun. Just watch your head for chunks of screaming rocks!"
