    1 thought on “The Incal: Oversized Deluxe”

    1. I think that seeing the documentary Jodorowski's Dune helped prepare me for this book, since I knew what I was getting into. In a lot of ways, The Incal does what Jodorowski wasn't able to do with his film adaptation of Frank Herbert's novel. As far as I can tell, The Incal is aboutoto-scientific neo-spiritual existentialism? That sounds about right. In a weird way, this story reminded me of C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy--not a connection I was expecting to make as I read this. My suggestion for ta [...]

    2. When Jean Giraud or Moebius passed away, the international "comic book" or "graphic novel" lost the last of the 4 great giants who shaped the medium (the other three being Osamu Tezuka, Will Eisner and Jack Kirby)- geniuses who combined an innovative and unique look and feel, with a tremendous breadth of work. While American exposure to Moebius actual comic book work was limited- his overall effect in terms of design and mass media can't be understated - first through the translations of "Metal [...]

    3. Başlarında farklı tarzı ve güzel çizgisiyle sizi yakalıyor fakat sonrasında ne olduğunu anlamadan, neyin ne olduğu belli olmadan, bir yerlere sürükleniyorsunuz. Senaryosal bir sıkıntı olduğunu düşünüyor, kopukluk yaşıyorsunuz. Özellikle sonlara doğru bu kopukluk daha da artıyor. Fakat herşeye rağmen farklı bir çizgi roman okumak isteyenler için doğru adres. Taytlı pelerinli, hep aynı sona sahip çizgi romanlardan değil en azından.

    4. The Incal je kultni strip koji je napisao Alejandro Jodorowsky, a nacrtao Moebius. Jodorowskom je ovo bio prvi strip koji je napisao i najavio ga je skromno kao "roman koji će promijeniti način na koji francusko tržište razmišlja o stripu".Jodorowsky je poznat po svojim kvazi-umjetničkim filmovima El Topo i The Holy Mountain, koje ja vidim kao proto-hipsterske, u njima je "čudno" prodano pod originalno, a simbolika nema dubinu, ili ja jednostavno nisam podešen na sličnu frekfenciju kao [...]

    5. This book drips in pure sci-fi creativity. It seems like every page has a new, cool concept put forth; all within a cohesive narrative. (I won't give any examples, as I think that would take away from the enjoyment of reading this book).Moebius's art is fantastic. The new reprinted of The Incal respectfully retains the original coloring (which is especially nice since many reprints seem to replace the original color with some awful modern rendering). I see so many artists that I love within Moeb [...]

    6. I loved this book a little too much that I will refrain myself from reviewing it.This is Kilger Trout in graphic novel format with one of the most unique and most amazing artwork ever.

    7. Wild, expansive, profoundly weird space opera fairy tale replete with Dune-like bits. Lots of union-of-genders-mystic-tantra stuff here, too—definitely bears the mark of being written in the 80s. Amazing art, vivid, fast-moving action. As Brian Michael Bendis points out in his forward, it's painfully obvious that some people have spent their whole careers ripping this off, I mean, creating vivid homages.

    8. I kept picking up this graphic novel, reading a few pages, only to then put it down again. I could never get into it. The story zooms everywhere and is very epic, but the characters are not really developed and the dialogue is at times kind of preachy. I don't know if it all reads better in the original French or not. This story is heavy in metaphysics, and it felt like a lot of the supposed profundity of the text whizzed over my head, or maybe Jodorowsky tried to jam too much into this one stor [...]

    9. Moebius: Great at art. Genius of western comics. Jodorowsky: Great concepts, but has the biggest, dumbest lead foot when it comes to execution. At the very least, can someone call a cease-fire to his out of control use of exclamation points? If you expect character development, coherent plot, robust and convincing dialogue, and any respect for subtlety at all, apply elsewhere. In fairness to Jodo - his films are amazing when any pretense of these elements of storytelling are bypassed completely. [...]

    10. ***1/2 stars. I can see why this epic has inspired so many other sci-fi and comix creators - it's spilling over with fascinating ideas about media and technology, compelling adventure scenes and detailed cityscapes, and Moebius's eye-popping graphics. It was a fun read though also a bit clinical. The characters are all one-dimensional archetypes, there's no emotion generated, and the scenes about convincing entire galaxies to meditate had an awkward New Age feel to them. But if you're a fan of M [...]

    11. Nejvíc sci-fi komiks, jaký jsem zatím četla. Asi mě ten žánr fakt baví. Zaujme hned na první straně, kde hlavní protagonista padá vstříc smrti.

    12. I should have known that this would be weird knowing that it is written by Jodorowsky. It was nice to see the art by Moebius. I just didn't like this.

    13. Típico cómic de Jodorowski con muchas pretensiones pero poco fondo, conclusión muy previsible y poco original. Al menos en esta ocasión es un cómic entretenido (aunque un poco cargante a veces) y el dibujo es genial, eso lo salva.Jodorowski tiene algo bueno, y es que tiene buenas ideas y sus obras siempre tienen conceptos rompedores y originales, lo malo es que ráramente los desarrolla y los suele dejar como parte del paisaje para centrarse en clichés.

    14. I am sorry, but I couldn't like "The Incal" as much as I wanted. Its art is what an epic space opera should be. Colossal scale but with attention to detail, really beautiful exotic environments with the necessary disregard of physics and it succeeded in immersing you in that degenerate galaxy. Being true to the sci-fi genre, it also dealt with pressing social subjects, like the indifference of the individual and the media manipulation by the leading elite, which allowed (in my view) the Darkness [...]

    15. Jodorowsky's "The Incal" is a decidedly unique hard book to write about because it is an experience that is deeply engaging, profoundly uneven, narratively frustrating, and dripping with Jodorowsky's almost maniac and gonzo ideas. Jodorowsky's comics are as enigmatic as his films but often with less subtly in its symbolism. While certain characters do have some narrative consistency such as the Metabaron and John DiFool, most the characters seem to have total personality changes depending on the [...]

    16. So this what they call the contender to be "For the best comicbook in medias history" huhIts alright actually. Pretty good Incal is not you're average Sci-Fi, hell you cant even call this a Sci-fi at all. More like a weed trip in space actually. Its basically Space Opera(means technology logic don't apply on this as much) part spiritual journey(means hipster people will love this) and also a littlebit of satire(like your employer have sex with a werewolf/you're bird becomes a prophet/fighting a [...]

    17. Jodorowsky - i started reading only because of this name and what an excruciating pain it is to finish reading. If sci-fi is all about writing mumbo jumbo technical words, then anyone can write too. This is bible meets edge of tomorrow/ source code. The only positive thing about reading this graphic novel is the illustrations and the color. So imaginative and vivid it is. Should think twice from now on before picking anything from hyped up writers. Phew!!

    18. EDIT: Getting it for Christmas!Proposed animated movie trailer, very good: youtube/watch?v=c4VkyzSaw this in 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die. Holy crap.

    19. An absolute riot of art and Scifi adventure. The story is good but it's Mœbius's stunning art that makes it so interesting. Just what I needed to take my mind off of a sprained neck and shoulder. This is actually six volumes in one formatted and translated into English.

    20. This would have been better as a silent art book. Moebius's art is astounding, but Jodorowsky's story is trash.

    21. El Incal tiene algunos de los mejores momentos de Moebius, razón suficiente para salir corriendo a buscar una copia física. También tiene uno de los peores guiones de Jodorowsky, uno que retiene todo su esquematismo metafísico y desinterés por la caracterización, como ya señalaron muchos lectores. Frente a eso es necesario recordar que su contribución fue más la de un partero de imágenes que la de un escritor. La obra cinematográfica de Jodorowsky es entre otras cosas un gran juego vi [...]

    22. The legendary, always-mentioned-but-rarely-seen, influential, and illustrious Mobius and Jodorowsky work is a must read for anybody interested in the following things. Bear with me, this is a long list. Check this out if you find yourself in any of these listings: fantasy lover, sci-fi dreamer, trip-mode druggy adventure, video games, Star Wars, art comics like Ben Jones' or CF's contemporary works, comics like X-Men or X-Whatever, desert dystopias, blade runner dystopias, rainbow industrial par [...]

    23. 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 fighte [...]

    24. I really wanted to like The Incal, and there are parts I really like! The artwork is amazing, and it keeps getting better as the story progresses. Some of the ideas were really creative and fun. There was a lot here that made me think.But I can't give more than two stars for the way they treat John Difool. The entire plot consists of everyone doing whatever the Incal says, John complains about it, and then either a) John decides to help because the girl he likes tricks him into it, b) the girl h [...]

    25. I'll be honest, I finally got around to reading this classic only after having seen Frank Pavich's documentary Jodorowsky's Dune. I'd heard of Jodo and his El Topo, and you can't be any kind of comics fan without having at least heard the name Mœbius. Still, I came late to this particular party. It's absolutely true what people have said--you can literally pick out the bits that have been used in any number of sci-fi films over the past 30 years. I'd never read The Incal, but every one of Mœbi [...]

    26. difficult to rate, i understand this is classic band-desinee from france, that this is 'adult', that this inspired an entirely different and more mature sort of 'comic book', but i had read of this, heard of this, so was primed to be disappointed. as others note, the artwork by moebius is great, the story by jodorowsky not. could call this a three but i am judging more by aspiration, by dream, of what can be given in the medium of graphics, than all of the story. maybe if i had read this as a te [...]

    27. Una de las historietas más fascinantes que he leído jamás. El dibujo es maravilloso, cada página es como contemplar un cuadro al tiempo que la aventura engancha sin remedio hasta el final. Y menudo final, todavía estoy recuperando el aliento.Con razón ocupa tan elevado puesto en el mundo del cómic.
