And then Moebius say to me, “what you will do? You will die?”

No, I will not die.

For me, to fail is to change the way.

If we don’t do that, the Dune we was doing — the roots are the Dune of Herbert. But this Dune is us. Is the optical. Is the creation.

And then I will use everything I put in Dune to make comics.

I say to Moebius, “Why don’t we do a comic?”

And I start to dictate The Incal.

By Another quote from Alejandro Jodorowsky, from Jodorowsky’s Dune, in which he takes the failure of the film and turns it into something even greater in comics. 


This is happening RIGHT NOW.

I’ve teamed up with those fine folks at Broken Frontier to do a new column entitled ONE YOU WANT, spotlighting a different creator-owned, international or otherwise unsung comic every single week.

As the intro reads:

Each week a lot of comics hit the stores.

Some you’ve heard of. Some you haven’t.

Some have superheroes. Some don’t.

They might be comic books, they might be graphic novels.

This is the One You Want.

My aim’s to feature one comic a week you can go buy in your store that coming Wednesday that I feel might not be prominently featured elsewhere. With all the talk about how important creator-owned comics are - and I agree - I thought it would do something more than just talk about doing something. This is my contribution to the mix and I hope it helps.

This week’s pick is a rerelease of an international sci-fi epic very near and dear to my heart. Yeah, that means it’s illustrated by Moebius. I feel the newest US iteration of Humanoids is doing a lot of amazing work bringing both new works and representing classics which have been long out of print. I also feel they’re not getting enough attention. So, yeah, it’s pretty much the perfect book to start with.

Let me know what you think!
