I have been busy switching back and forth between reading two things lately: Guardians of the Galaxy to prepare for my LitFlix, and the item that showed up like magic from a library in Pennsylvania: The Incal.
I found out about this comic thanks to the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune – check out my review of that here. The crazy and visionary mind of Jodorowsky never really returned to film after his attempt at Dune – he turned to comics. And his great saga, along with artist Jean Moebius Giraud, is The Incal.
I’ve read up through the first part of the collected edition I got, so through what was called The Black Incal. It’s been an interesting read. I have a deadline to get through this that’s stronger than the ones even for my LitFlix – it’s a library book! It has a due date! So I thought I would share some initial thoughts on the comic, as I continue on my way to the ding of “Achievement Unlocked: You Read The Incal!”
