"The Metabarons" recounted the extraordinary saga of the genealogy of the galaxy’s ultimate warrior. But his ancestors also had ancestors. And far from being noble warriors with an inflexible code, one will discover they were in fact disloyal, vengeful pirates born out of brutality and war.
From legendary creator Alexandro Jodorowsky and artist Das Pastoras, and for all of those who dreamt of a sequel to "The Metabarons," comes instead the origin tale of their first ancestor, Dayal de Castaka.

Your stomach is now the sepulcher of my wife. Should I have read Metabarons first? Well I sure didn’t. Since this is the prequel I figured it would be okay to start here, I think it was. I sure enjoyed it at any rate. This story recounts the origin of the Metabarons, part of the universe by the wildly imaginative Jodorowsky which encompasses other stories of his that I love, namely the Incal trilogy. I had never heard of this artist, Das Pastoras, but wow, this is a sumptuous and gorgeously illustrated story. I suppose this would still be classified as a comic, but it’s really more of a fully realized series of painstakingly rendered paintings. Check out pages 24 & 25, a two page spread with no dialog or captions but still epic, beautiful and crazy violent. An amazing work of art and I’m sure, even cooler, if you’ve already read the grand Metabarons book which I am about to do.
