    1. the weird malcontent known as Lone Sloane travels the galaxy in 6 bizarre adventures full of hallucinatory vistas, mind-boggling transformations, dreadful plot twists, and lovecraftian horror. he turns into a god-like thing; he turns back into a man. he is the wrong person to hire or to suborn because whoever crosses his path comes to a very bad end. he's a death-magnet. avoid Lone Sloane at all costs!I found his journeys to be pretty entertaining. and definitely over the top. Druillet's intense [...]

    2. The 6 Voyages reprints stories first published in Pilote in the early seventies. First published as a collection in 1972. In September 2015 we get this oversized hardcover version which is kind of overwhelming or disorienting, in a few ways. I found it more interesting than actually pleasurable/fun, but it's impressive, especially if we consider the time it was first being published.It's this trippy sci fi fantasy about a guy, Sloane, who is a space explorer with mystical powers, encountering st [...]

    3. Like Hawkwind, circa the same time these were originally published, but without Lemmy.The absolutely stunning artwork in this volume more than makes up for flat characterization and the presence of more gods in the machines (I mean this literally!) than ancient Greece could have conceived. Druillet was no storyteller, but, wow, what an artist! The line between organic and mechanical is effectively erased, while the immense scale of the structures, space, and spaceships through which and with whi [...]

    4. Druillet's trippy, baroque art is on full display here. I'm glad Titan has chosen to reprint this series for English readers. We review this book on the podcast, comicsalternative/episode-.

    5. The whole book has a very 70s European vibe to it. With an odd story and the sometimes disjointed layout, I didn't find this overly enjoyable. Still impressive.

    6. Ahh, another attempt at enjoying some Druillet gone poorly once more. I'm blown away from some of Druillet's artwork, but then some pages are too messy to even understand. And this story wasn't very engaging for me. I'm not really sure what happened to be honest.I think I'll once more stick to reading Druillet in small doses in the pages of Heavy Metal. Damn! I feel like there's was so much potential with this guy he just needed some quality control, better coloring and someone to write a good s [...]

    7. The Baroque art was great, cosmically trippy in that great psychedelic way that only the stuff created in the original psychedelic years can be, but the story is a mess. Maybe it's just clunky translating, or maybe Druillet simply isn't a writer, but things happen for no reason and out of the blue. This isn't a real *spoiler* but, for instance, at one point Sloane's shipboard sentient computer becomes a woman, the reason being, far as I could tell, so Druillet could render a beautiful drawing of [...]

    8. It felt like a 70's or 80's animated cartoon. It was fun and I can see some people really liking this book. It has that inspirational quality with a closed can of potential (something I call that feeling). I still think it was hard to read and it felt like a very talented young artist perhaps if I was in high school this would be pretty amazing. As an adult it just lacks something. Artistically it had some nicely renderings of vehicles. Some exciting stuff. I did feel there is something lost in [...]

    9. The story is reminiscent of old school sci-fi stories I read as a teen. The art is impressive, the oversized dimensions of the books just barely do it justice. It was clearly written for large pages. The coloring is ok, however, there are a few text areas with purple backgrounds that were a little hard to read. This story is being divided into three volumes. These are thin enough I wish they combined them into one.

    10. A cosmic spectacular! The stories are only a few pages long each, telling the tale of a man ripped from his own dimension and seeking a way home. Panels are large and busy, but only a few colors are used on each page so as not to overwhelm the viewer, and most of the detail can safely be ignored. It's a quick read, as most pages are composed of only a few panels and similarly few text blocks.

    11. Baroque, bizarre, trippy. Feels reminiscent of Moorcock. If this were a movie, Monster Magnet should be providing the soundtrack. Heavy visuals, feather plot.

    12. Short, eight-page stories, Druillet's massive artwork with incredible baroque-detail captures the imagination making up for the minimal narrative and complete lack of character development.

    13. I found myself thinking "damn this is just psych metal as a comic book," and then learned Druillet did illustrations for Hawkwind, so there's that.

    14. Philippe Druillet was never going to win any prizes for subtle or complex verbal narrative, but that isn't - and never was - the point of his stunning SF comics. Here the artwork is all, overwhelming, complex, psychedelic, challenging you to take it all in at once (you will fail) and then inviting you to reapproach it from a dozen different angles to take in the bizarrerie and subtlety you would certainly otherwise have missed. It would be perfectly possible to spend hours poring over one of the [...]

    15. I checked this out of the library not realizing that it contains some of the same material I already own in a 70's paperback edition called Lone Sloane: Delirius. This new Titan hardcover edition really shows off the beauty of Druillet's art compared to the old edition, which tends to be dark and muddy, losing a lot of the fine penwork. The lettering has been re-done as well, making it infinitely more readable than the baroque calligraphy of the older edition. The story is a crazy mishmash of Lo [...]

    16. I read about Phillipe Druillet many years ago. It was one of those artists I thought I would never experience first hand. Now when his work is made available in English I fear that it is to late for me. The art has moved forward since the early seventies and the importance of this work has been somewhat diminished by the passing of the decades. Still it is fascinating to look at the full page panels flooded with details. The pseudo-philosophical writing on the other hand is almost tedious with i [...]

    17. An ever surprizing trip of grandiose cosmic psychedelia.Incredibly intricate ilustrations, that tell a great deal of the story. This author really seems to me alike a precursor of Caza, and like him, Moebius and Bilal benefits a lot from being both the writer and the ilustrator. His sci-fi story-telling is not the translation of a script but a holistic creation of the same mind. And, being a creation from the 70's, this is quite the psychedelic voyage. It was by first peek into his work. I'm eag [...]

    18. This might as well have been written in French. Nothing really make sense from one panel to the next. Reading the text will make you feel like you are high. Not a good high, where the world is a wonderful place to live in and you love everything; more like a high where you find yourself evaluating everything you see and cannot make sense of it. But you don't read this for the text, you read it for the art. Each panel is a psychedelic mind-fuck explosion. boom

    19. Fantastic visions of a renegade finding his way through a dystopian future of limitless space. The moral of any and everything is possible illustrated beautiful in glorious panes, the ugly beauty of the imagination with an antihero that flaunts all conventions. Reprinted English translation for the first time since the 70s done in high color gloss and hardcover.

    20. If HP Lovecraft and Peter Max had a love child, it would be this psychedelic, cosmic horror comic with thin, cardboardy characters and plot. A fun reread after many decades There is no Amy in this book, the description is wrong.

    21. The stories are short and don't always make a lot of sense. But no one should read this for the actual stories. The art is the attraction here, and it's pretty incredible - fantastic designs, trippy colors, and brilliant layouts.

    22. The story concepts facilitate excellent graphic artwork, otherwise their execution is a little clunky.

    23. Absolutely exquisite, expressive, imaginative, trippy art. The stories themselves feel rather abrupt - but the art is incredible!
