Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Incal (Hardcover)I read about this in SFX magazine and decided pretty much instantly I needed to own a copy. I love comics and graphic novels and the SFX review was extremely positive but what really caught my eye was the beautiful artwork.
As usual I found a copy on Amazon for a great price and Im glad I got it.
Still relatively obscure in the UK, having only been published in France and sporadically in the UK, this really deserves to be a worldwide smash. Perhaps now is its time?!?
A true space opera in every sense, The Incal follows the (mis)adventures of reluctant hero John DiFool, a down on his luck private investigator, as he comes to be in possesion of the awesomely powerful Light Incal. A crystal sought by numerous other unsavoury characters who will do whatever they can to get their hands on it.
The Incal is a fantastic mindbending epic created by Alejandro Jodorowsky and wonderfully brought to vivid life by Moebius. It enthralled me from the first page and it was difficult to put down. A stunning, full colour hardback tome it will now sit proudly alongside Watchmen, From Hell, Maus et all on my bookshelf. I now plan to delve deeper into the "Jodoverse"
