Jodorowsky deixa o seu lado violento à solta nesta história escatológica de corrupção, lealdade criminosa, morte e redenção com contornos edipianos. Abandonado enquanto à nascença por ter nascido com uma cauda, Juan é adoptado por uma prostituta anã e vive numa lixeira alimentado por cães. A sua arma e uma capacidade implacável para aplicar violência são as virtudes que o levam de líder de gang criminoso a segurança pessoal de um primeiro-ministro a soldo de um general corrupto que controla um p...more

Holy hell, this was a dark one. The plot holds through both Volumes 1 and 2 and the plot is well designed and executed with the drawings. The art is almost, well, beautiful; but, really, what a dark, twisted, world Jodorowsky weaves. He goes to the far depths of humanity for this tale of sinner turned saint. Not for the faint of heart, young children, those happy in life, those opposed to nudity, vulgarity..oh the list goes on.

Jodorowsky does not disappoint. This tale has all of the Jodorowsky elements; saviors, saints, sins, redemption, and an eternal quest to find out who you are and what your business is being alive. This is definitely worth picking up, and will keep you reading until there is absolutely nothing left to read.

A very good (and actually more coherent than his other material) Jodorowsky tale. It's a wondrous epic and this first part will keep you on your toes. I love the art by Bess, it really fits the tone and style of the book. Excellent.

What a wonderfully strange and bizarre first volume. Jodorowsky's putting forth a ton of ideas, and I probably agree with about a quarter of them, but it's so wonderfully executed I just don't care.

Couldn't put it down. Ending led us to believe this was going to be a series of books and I'm still waiting.
