Jodorowsky & Moebius' masterpiece THE INCAL returns to print this November.

Moebius is arguably my favorite comics creator of all time.  For the past few years, zero of his books have been in print in the US.  Zero.

The good news is Humanoids is back and they’re bringing all of the Jodorowsky/Moebius collaborations back to print.  Jodorowsky and Moebius worked together to create a film adaptation of Dune in 1974.  The film was never made, but instead of letting all their designs and ideas go to waste, they took those concepts and made some awesome comics like Metabarons and The Incal.  This November their finest collaboration, THE INCAL, returns with all three volumes collected in a deluxe slipcase format (with the original colors, not those terrible digital recolors from a few years ago).

Humanoids just received a sample copy of the book and there’s more great photos of the interiors on their blog.
