9781401206857: Megalex: The Anomaly - Book 01 (Megalex Book)

On the planet-city of Megalex, urban sprawl consumes the entire planet, leaving only a few bastions of nature. Megalexs drug-addled citizens are always searching for a distraction; even the battle Megalex wages on the environment is seen as giddy entertainment. That all changes when a clone, known only as the Anomaly, is born and rescued from certain destruction by the beautiful Adam and her fellow freedom fighters. With the forces of nature on their side, the Anomaly and Adam fight to end the stranglehold Megalex has on the world.

About the Author:

Alejandro Jodorowsky (also known as Alexandro Jodorowsky) is a Chilean film and theatre director, screenwriter, playwright, actor, comic book writer, author, poet, mime, musician, and spiritual guru. He is best known for his avant-garde, cult films, such as "El Topo," a Midnight movie favorite, or "Santa Sangre." In the mid 1970s, he became attached to direct the adaptation of the famous Frank Herbert sci-fi epic novel "Dune." He brilliantly assembled a team of extremely diverse and gifted artists such as HR Giger, Chris Foss, Dan O'Bannon, and Mœbius, all of who would later be hired to work on Ridley Scott's "Alien." "Dune" was never produced, but Jodorowsky, having been exposed to such immense visual talent, propelled himself into writing graphic novels, pairing up with the artist Mœbius. This collaboration resulted in what many consider to be one of the most creative European sci-fi graphic novel series of all time, "The Incal." Since penning "The Incal," Jodorowsky continued writing top selling comic books with a wide variety of Europe's most talented artists, such as "The White Lama" (with Georges Bess), "The Metabarons" (with Juan Gimenez), "The Technopriests" (with Zoran Janjetov), and most recently "Bouncer" (with François Boucq).

Review:

The story's grand ideas, huge cast of intriguing characters, and futuristic style make for a perfect way to spend a few hours." - Figures.com "Megalex is a compelling story with a unique perspective." - ComicBookDaily.com
