Jodorowsky & Janjetov - [Before] The Incal - All 12 Issues in one .cbr

"Created by Jodorowsky and the better-known French creator Moebius, the original series The Black Incal ran for seven years [coming up ;], which Jodorowsky followed up with a prequel adequately entitled Before The Incal. When Humanoids Publishing secured the rights for a translated American edition, it wisely decided to run the prequel first, allowing the events to unfold chronologically for the first time.

Also, taking advantage of artistic technological advances since the series’ inception, the American edition has been completely recolored and is a vast improvement over the garish coloring of the original European edition. But the smartest move of all was to provide the series in an accessible, relatively inexpensive comics format rather than a graphic novel, making it more enticing to new readers. The only drawback of this is that the story doesn’t necessarily lend itself to being broken into 22-page chunks, and the end of each issue is somewhat jarring. [I fixed that ;]

American audiences may feel that the future urban backdrop is inspired by Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner but would do well to remember that the film came out the year following the initial release of The Black Incal. This is an excellent piece of work showcasing two of Europe’s many excellent and overlooked creators and shouldn’t be missed by fans of true comic-book storytelling."

Thank you for this. I loved the Black Incal and read all of the work of both Jodorowsky and Moebius... a side effect from having been exposed to Heavy Metal from issue #1 back in the day.
The Incal was the first graphic novel I ever read way back in 1982 or so.

Moebius unique design sense has been something I've seen copied in so many movies since then that I've driven people mad by pointing out how often it has been ripped off.

Thank you for sharing this.
THANKS!!!!!
