Lowly class ‘R’ detective John Difool and his faithful companion, Deepo, are unwillingly hurled into yet another universe-saving mission, as their world is faced with the threat of an all-devouring metallic virus.
Visionary storyteller Jodorowsky returns to the epic mythology he created with the late Mœbius in the early 80s. For the conclusion of the legendary spiritual space adventure series, he partners with Eisner-winning artist Ladrönn.

It’s traveling at hyper-luminous speed! Out of all three collected Incal books, I like the artwork in this one the best. Granted this artist, Ladronn, owes a lot to those who came before, but his style is more painterly and to me, beautiful to look at. This was published in 2016 so at least I don’t feel like a chump for not knowing about it sooner. As you would expect, this is the grand conclusion to the Incal trilogy and a wonderful end it is. If you are new to the Incal universe I would definitely recommend The Incal classic collection or Before the Incal as prerequisites. You can start here if you want, but come on, this is a complicated universe, you might as well make it easier on yourself by starting at the beginning. As a conclusion, this volume surpassed my expectations and delivered an epic ending which actually improved my impressions of a few of the main characters, notably our hero, John Difool. This is a complex and adult storyline, full of many themes that I couldn’t have appreciated at a younger age. It does my heart good to see that comics of this depth are still being made, no matter how hard they are to find. A grand tale worthy of being archived at the head of any respectable collection.
