Alan Mangel has it all. As a popular Philosophy Professor at the world famous Université de La Sorbonne, he is wealthy, married and academically acclaimed. On his sixtieth birthday, however, Alan’s life will crumble as Elisabeth, a beautiful young student, claims she received a vision from God that he is to impregnate her with the second-coming of John the Baptist. As Alan gives himself up to the wild forces bullying him through life, he engages on a spiritual journey that challenges his very "reality." Everything once true is proven to be false. Everything once false is proven to be true.

Review:

Cult filmmaker Alexandro Jodorowsky and the visionary French artist Moebius have teamed up again, this time to bring us a comics about the coming of the new Messiah. University professor Mangel (drawn with a Jodorowsky likeness), a restless man haunted by inner demons, becomes involved in a plot by a group of religious fanatics to bring about the birth of a new Savior: he has been chosen to be the reluctant father. Are they a sect of dangerous madmen, or is God really using them as his messengers? Count on Jodorowsky to provoke, challenge, and offend. Count on Moebius to provide the stunning graphics.

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.

Jean Giraud aka Mœbius was a French artist, cartoonist, and writer, who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées tradition. Giraud earned worldwide fame, predominantly under the pseudonym Mœbius, which he used to create a wide range of science fiction and fantasy comics in a highly imaginative and surreal, almost abstract style. Esteemed by Federico Fellini, Stan Lee and Hayao Miyazaki, among many others, he is considered as the most influential bande dessinée artist, and a continued influence to filmmakers and artists around the world.
