About 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.

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.

I'm recommending here the book The Incal: Classic Collection by Alexandro Jodorowsky and Moebius. The story is okay sci-fi, with interplanetary subterfuge centered around a high level battle between light and darkness. There are a variety of fun characters, including our hero, selfish, self-centered, reluctant John Difool.But the reason to read it is the wonderful illustrations by Moebius, a master who just passed away. As the intro to the book says, the look of so many subsequent sci-fi movies derived from this book. You'll see it right away. A number of times I was reminded of the wonderful work of Winsor McCay in Little Nemo in Slumberland (boy, was that one ahead of its time!)

Get me my weapon, gotta bag me a falling one! My brother somehow got a hold of this comic in the ‘80s (not an easy feat, here in the West) and I remember reading, barely understanding, but still loving fiercely the artwork and scope of this epic tale. I only got to read the beginning of the story, up until What Lies Beneath, since those were the only issues my brother could get his hands on. Had to wait almost 30 years for the conclusion. This handsome 2011 edition compiles all of the “classic” Incal tales by Moebius and I was finally able to finish the saga. If you know anything about Jodorowsky, you know he has an incredibly fertile and open minded imagination. Reading this book as an adult I still feel like I am barely grasping it’s true meaning. I also find it interesting that the main character, John Difool is kind of despicable, or at least not very heroic at all. There is so much going on in here! Not just visually, thanks to the talent of the legendary Moebius, but big concepts and deep, complex philosophies. This is the kind of thing you keep on your shelf and read every few years, understanding more each time. They call this the “Classic Collection” and it is definitely that, worth owning and worth the wait.
