MOEBIUS THE INCAL, AN ADVENTURE OF JOHN DIFOOL The Fifth Essence: The Difool Planet (T.6), Les Humanoïdes Associés 1988 Original plate n° 12. Signed. India ink on paper 36.5 × 48.6 cm (14.37 × 19.13 in.) What makes The Incal undoubtedly one of the most important comics of the twentieth century is the convergence of a brilliant and prolific author-writer-filmmaker-guru, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and an "awakened" cartoonist who was in tune with all the developments of the popular culture of his time: Jean Giraud, alias Moebius. Jodorowsky, son of a communist father and a pious mother, both Jewish, commented on the Gospels, the Talmud and the Tarot of Marseille. He also studied the divinatory arts of India and Japan. His mysticism is therefore, according to him, above all these influences, a synthesis in a way. Moebius discovered in science fiction an infinite space for creation that responds to a void left by the bankruptcy of ideologies and secular beliefs. His drawing has reached a degree of maturity that borders on writing, capable of handling all registers, from humor to poetry. This is all John Difool, a deep universe that doesn't take itself seriously and that allows to experiment all the possible aspects of the 9th Art, while remaining of an eminently classic invoice.
