Born February 17, 1929 in Tocopilla, Chile, Alejandro Jodorowsky has left his mark on this world as a filmmaker, mime, poet, writer, artist, and mystic. Best known in the comics world as the writer of the "Jodoverse," which includes The Metabarons, The Incal, and The Technopriests, Jodorowsky has dedicated his life to artistic expression in a variety of media. But no matter what form his ideas appear in, you can usually tell that they come from Jodorowsky.
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.
Now playing in limited release, Jodorowsky's Dune documents the history of the legendary unmade treasure that is/would-have-been Dune, a planned adaption of Frank Herbet's classic science fiction novel undertaken in the 1970s by filmmaker and comics writer Alejandro Jodorowsky...
Following domestic hardcover releases of Alejandro Jodorowsky and the late Moebius' acclaimed 1981 series The Incal and its prelude, Before The Incal illustrated by Zoran Janjetov, Humanoids will complete the trilogy/tetralogy/quadrilogy (we'll explain, we promise) for fans in the US. Coming later in 2014 are the first-ever US releases of The Incal sequels After the Incal and Final Incal.
