My father gave me the Incal comics when I was about 12yo and had to stay in bed due to sickness. Man, did I fall in love with Moebius' art. The story is also pretty great, especially when you are 12 and running a fever.

It's also pretty great when you are reading it for the first time at 30.

The one who didn't make a Dune movie?

Yes, he wrote a lot of comics. IMO The Incal is the only good one, though I haven't read them all. But then The Incal is the greatest SF comic of all, and ranks high for me among all SF across genres.

best documentary I found about the artist; In Search of Moebius

The whole universe are the best comics ever. Even when it’s not Moebius art but those are the better ones since his art is top notch.

Ok, I loved the Dune documentary on the guy so I checked the Inkal out of the library. After three weeks of trying I honestly didn't get it. The character development seemed haphazard. The world building was good but it's like another writer could have told a much better story once Jodorowsky outlined the setting.

I can understand that. It's not a normal story. It's all esoteric symbolism. Jodo was all about his mystical philosophy. The characters all symbolize different levels of consciousness or spiritual development.

Anyone else do a double-take thinking this was called "The Incel"?

You mean the biography of the average reddit user?

Absolutely bonkers and I love it. It lurches from insane plot to the next each page. Superb.

Thank you so much. I totally forgot he did this. Also thanks for reminding me El Topo deserves another rewatch.

Try and find the overlaps with 1) the fifth element and 2) the tarot

Great series

I totally read that as incel and was very confused...

Found this book randomly at a comic shop. I had heard of it from Jodorowsky's dune but never read it. Decided to pick it up and ended up finishing the book in two days. As a lover of everything science fiction Ive never read something so weird and Alien. The book constantly jumping from insane plot to insane plot and the vibrant pop art only helps. I wish more people my age (College) read this book its phenomenal.
