The work of Moebius is just too beautiful to warrant anything less than four stars - and a creative sci-fi plot by Jorodowsky bumps it up to five. A Must read for any sci-fi comic fans, and if you can get your hands on the super limited edition hard cover it is well worth the expense.

This book would have been more impressive if I had come to it without as much background on Moebius. From the general to the specific, it is culled from other works and collaborations of the artist's. The early style is owed to 'The Long Tomorrow' written by Dan O'Bannon and illustrated by Moebius. That innovative story also marks one of the first forays into cyberpunk, and was a major influence on the film 'Blade Runner'.

The rest of the story is little differentiated from Moebius' various Metal
Gut und abgefahren, wie die gesamte Incal-Reihe - und typisch für eine Reihe nicht ganz so perfekt wie Band 1.

Aber der meinen Edition (die schöne Splitter-Hardcover-Neuausgabe) beigefügte Essay mit der esoterisch-psychoanalytischen Interpretation ist doch eher etwas seltsam. Natürlich geht es im Incal auch um Sex, aber die gesamte Handlung über Ödipuskomplex und Kastrationsängste zu erklären ist doch verdammt weit hergeholt. (Wobei der Essay *nicht* in meine Wertung einging.)

Recommends it for: metaphysicians, art lovers
Once upon a time, Film Director Alejandro Jodorowsky and French Graphic Artist Moebius were going to make the film version of Dune. Sadly, this incomparable synergy didn't pan out, but thankfully these two geniuses rechanneled their creative effort into this metaphysical comic epic. Esoteric, satirical and action-packed, this may very well be the best Graphic Science Fiction Epic ever. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Ou la suite des aventures galactiques de ce faux héro John Difool, pris au piège mais aussi subjugé par le pouvoir de l'incal. Il va découvrir ici l'incal lumière (sorte d'antithèse de l'incal noir, mais aussi complémentaire...) et aussi la tres courte vetue Animah, sa gardienne, et le reste de la petite famille,

Uy, de este tomo recuerdo menos que del anterior y que del siguiente. Pero sí recuerdo que me gustó más o menos igual que aquellos.
Si no soy el lector más inconstante del universo, le pego en el palo.
It seemed promising at first, but then the "what exactly were the writers smoking" vibe got too strong for me. Back to the library with you.
