    The Incal

    A comic book for a change. It was made by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Moebius in the 80's.

    It's full of hermetic symbolism and imagery. The eBook on amazon is relatively cheap these days. I can recommend it.

    If you ever happen to see the movie "El Topo" by Jodorowsky, beware! There's nothing like it.

    Sounds pretty good!

    It is! But it has more layers. This description only covers the top surface. But even that alone makes it a very good comic book. It's a favourite for a lot of people, BTW.

    It is awesome in fact. I've seen lectures with phd people trying to "understand" it. LOL.

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    Jodorowsky was quite influential on pop culture having made the first midnight movie ever (El Topo). The Beatles were very into that and George Harrisson planned to starr in his next movie but refused to have a close up of his anus made.

    Jodorowsky then was offered to make "Dune", which they say is the best film never made:



    He had the idea for Luc Besson's Fifth Element with Bruce Willis and Milla Jovovich too.
