The Metabarons Reviews
Jodorowsky is pure magic and Giminez's art is unreal. The Metabarons is like an Homerian epic of Conan and Dune mixed together. Word to the wise though, do not read the intro to the last story supplement before reading The Incal by Jodorowsky and Moebius (spoilers). Other than that, loved, loved, loved this book! The Jodoverse is one of the best sci-fi universes out there, as long you have a penchant for the barbarically absurd psychedelic. :)
Jodo and Gimenez deliver an at times laugh out loud, over the top, Greek myth Shakespearean epic of hyper-machismo, earth shattering emotional displays, implausible realities, abject cruelty, and gender dismorpho-bending even that would shock even a 25 year old David Bowie. I don't know who's more mad: Jodo for writing this scatological opera or Gimenez for hand painting every panel of its 536 pages.
An incredible work! The art and story are moving on so many levels that its hard to encompass their prestige and mystique in a simple review. A must have for lovers of "The Incal"
Great collection, timeless, I only wished that the illustrations introducing each chapter were bigger as cover of the original books.
This book is awesome. The illustrations are baddass and Jodorowsky's stories are everything you wish for from the person that gave us The Holy mountain and el topo.
If you like graphic novels like this should be top on your list.
A true CLASSIC!!!
I loved the book
