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:

MOEBIUS is the pseudonym for legendary French-born comic artist, Jean Giraud. Having worked professionally since the age of 18, Moebius quickly found great success illustrating Western-themed comics including the wildly popular BLUEBERRY comic series. Having grown tired of working pre-dominantly in the Western genre, Jean Giraud signed many of his more experimental science fiction and fantasy works with the Moebius pseudonym. In 1974, Moebius co-created the METAL HURLANT comics anthology magazine with Phillipe Druillet, Jean-Pierre Dionnet, and Bernard Farkas. The four were collectively known as Les Humanoides Associes . Beyond his work in comics, Moebius has done storyboard and design work for several feature films including ALIEN, TRON, ABYSS, and THE FIFTH ELEMENT. Moebius has collaborated on several comic projects with Jodorowsky. Their collaborations include the world famous INCAL trilogy. ALEXANDRO JODOROWSKY: Chilean-born Jodorowsky s eclectic career includes professional stints as a poet, mime, theater director, film director, and comic book author. His avant-garde films include FANDO Y LIS, EL TOPO, THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, and SANTA SANGRE. While attempting to produce and direct Frank Herbert s DUNE novels as a feature film, Jodorowsky recruited an all-star group of designers that included H.R. Giger, Moebius, and Christopher Foss. Upon failing to find the necessary funds to complete production on DUNE, Jodorowsky sought to continue his creative collaboration with Moebius by co-creating THE INCAL comic book series. Inspired by Jodrowsky s interpretations of the Tarot, THE INCAL became an international sensation and the foundation for several of his spin-off comic projects including THE METABARONS and TECHNOPRIESTS. His immense library of comics include the brutal western BOUNCER, SON OF THE GUN, and THE WHITE LAMA.
