In addition to having (limited) copies of the different hardcover editions of the English translation Final Incal, the last chapter of the decades-spanning cosmic comic book series started in The Incal by Alejandro Jorodowsky and Moebius, publisher Humanoids has announced that it’ll have con-exclusive tarot cards on-hand at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Completely in keeping with the metaphysic mysticism and widescreen spirituality of the Incal universe, the cards’ designs will be based on the art of Jose Ladrönn, the artist who picked up the torch on Final Incal after Moebius left the project (Moebius’ one chapter, titled After the Incal, is included in the hardcover). The cards look awesome, as you can see by the few samples released so far. There will be ten in all, each measuring 2.75” × 4.75”.
Jodorowsky and Mœbius’s internationally bestselling Sci-Fi saga THE INCAL comes to its phenomenal finale ! Lowly class ‘R’ detective John Difool and his faithful companion, Deepo, are unwillingly hurled into yet another universe-saving mission, as their world is faced with the threat of an all-devouring metallic virus. Visionary storyteller Jodorowsky returns to the epic mythology he created with the late Mœbius in the early 80s. For the conclusion of the legendary spiritual space adventure series, he partners with Eisner-winning artist Ladrönn ( Cable, Hip Flask, Elephantmen ).
Pictures do not do this book justice, it’s a beautiful oversized production, concluding the story which legendary director and comic writer, Alejandro Jodorowski started with the equally masterful comics artist, Moebius in 1981.
FINAL INCAL DLX ED HC (W) Alejandro Jodorowsky (A) Ladronn, Moebius
Jodorowsky and Mœbius’ internationally bestselling Sci-Fi saga The Incal comes to its phenomenal finale! Visionary storyteller Jodorowsky returns to the epic mythology he created with the late Mœbius over 30 years ago. This volume concludes the spiritual space adventures of everyman, John DiFool, as the universe faces the threat of an all-devouring metallic virus. The limited & numbered book is presented in a slipcase and contains both the original, unfinished After the Incal drawn by Mœbius (1 volume), as well as the complete 3-volume series Final Incal illustrated by Eisner-winning artist Ladrönn (Cable, Hip Flask, Elephantmen).
For all those unfortunate people who have not seen the mind blowing, inspirational and transcendent documentary that is “Jodorowsky’s Dune,” I first off want to say, “FOOLS!!” quite loudly and then educate your 2nd dimension asses with what humanity was lucky enough to recieve after the project fell through–The Incal. Created by Moebius and Jodorowsky 1981, this series focuses on poor John DiFool, a class ‘R’ detective who is thrown into an adventure that bends time, space, consciousness and takes the reader to places beyond even the wildest acid trip imaginings. This volume, presented here for the first time ever in English, features the very last cycle of the comic saga with art the indomitable, LADRONN who pumps new life into the darkened city shafts of this desolate future universe of my wildest dreams.
