The complete collection of the Jodorowsky/Mœbius classic recounts the extraordinary (mis)adventures of the inept private investigator John DiFool. He seemingly stumbles upon the Incal, an entity of immense power. Through bizarre and often metaphysical means, DiFool finds himself as the most important being in the universe. Jodorowsky and Mœbius include several fascinating companions as DiFool follows his unwanted destiny: Deepo, a sentient concrete bird; The Metabaron, the most powerful fighter in the universe; Solune, The Metabaron's son of questionable origin; Wolfhead, hellbent on revenge; Animah, the beautiful rat queen and possible Goddess; and Tanatah, Animah's sister and Queen of the Amoks. This unlikely team defends the universe from near destruction while ushering DiFool to his improbable, predetermined fate. The magnificent Incal, beautifully rendered by Mœbius and perfectly written by Jodorowksy, ranks among some of the finest graphic novels of all time. It should be required reading by all comics and science fiction fans.
