Rare Artist Proof copy, signed by Moebius. Book in superb condition.
This edition contains a collection of the following books 3: The Incal 1, The Incal 2 & The Incal 3 which were originally published by Epic Graphic Novel.
Film producer Jodorowsky brought a new edge to Moebius' work and The Incal remains one of the very few examples of giants in two media coming together to create an enduring body of work.
The story starts as a futuristic hard-boiled detective caper. Low-rent dick John Difool takes an assignment from a mysterious beauty and, when the job goes awry, seeks refuge in the city's nether regions, where he encounters a dying alien creature who slips him the Incal.
Here the tale becomes a cosmic space opera, lightly touched by Philip K. Dick weirdness. Difool gets in the middle of a conflict between the galaxy's greatest warrior, the Metabaron (star of a separate series by Jodorowsky), and the Technopope, leader of a strange cult. In the loopy roller-coaster ride that follows, Jodorowsky introduces one dizzying new idea after another. Moebius' elegant art, with its towering metropolises, bizarre alien landscapes, and heroic figures, is fully equal to Jodorowsky's grandiose saga.
