Meet the Author

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, or "Santa Sangre." In the mid 1970s, he became attached to direct the adaptation of the famous Frank Herbert sci-fi epic novel "Dune." He brilliantly assembled a team of extremely diverse and gifted artists such as HR Giger, Chris Foss, Dan O'Bannon, and Mœbius, all of who would later be hired to work on Ridley Scott's "Alien." "Dune" was never produced, but Jodorowsky, having been exposed to such immense visual talent, propelled himself into writing graphic novels, pairing up with the artist Mœbius. This collaboration resulted in what many consider to be one of the most creative European sci-fi graphic novel series of all time, "The Incal." Since penning "The Incal," Jodorowsky continued writing top selling comic books with a wide variety of Europe's most talented artists, such as "The White Lama" (with Georges Bess), "The Metabarons" (with Juan Gimenez), "The Technopriests" (with Zoran Janjetov), and most recently "Bouncer" (with François Boucq).

Jean Giraud aka Mœbius was a French artist, cartoonist, and writer, who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées tradition. Giraud earned worldwide fame, predominantly under the pseudonym Mœbius, 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 dessinée artist, and a continued influence to filmmakers and artists around the world.
