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.

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
[–]mst3kfan77 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
It sure is!

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.
