John Difool, a low-class detective in a degenerate dystopian world, finds his life turned upside down when he discovers an ancient, mystical artifact called The Incal. Difool’s adventures will bring him into conflict with the galaxy’s greatest warrior, the Metabaron, and will pit him against the awesome powers of the Technopope. These encounters and many more make up a tale of comic and cosmic proportions that has Difool fighting for not only his very survival, but also the survival of the entire universe.

The Incal Classic Collection #1 Review

  • Maddening, brilliant, ridiculous, convoluted

    By CaptHarlock
    After seeing the excellent documentary "Jorodowsky's Dune" I became interested in this comic series. Especially when Jorodowsky said that that many ideas from his aborted Dune movie ended up in this series. If you are familiar with his movies EL TOPO or HOLY MOUNTAIN you'll have some idea what to expect here. Inspired, allegorical, hokey, immature, fantastic. It's a wild mixed bag all held together by the art of Moebius which is masterful. The coloring is incredible as well, especially by Isabelle Beaument-Joannet. The weakest entry is book four but the climatic book six is great.
