Dark Incal trailer

A movie trailer project inspired by the graphic novel The Incal by Moebius and Alexandro Jodorowsky.

Some 25 years ago, film director Jodorowsky and French comics artist Moebius collaborated on The Incal, a mind-blowing sf epic centered on a crystal with incredible powers. Now DC Comics is gathering the series, retranslated since its 1980s first U.S. appearance in Heavy Metal magazine. The story starts as a futuristic hard-boiled detective caper. Low-rent dick John Difool takes an assignment from a mysterious beauty and, when the job goes awry, seeks refuge in the city's nether regions, where he encounters a dying alien creature who slips him the Incal. Here the tale becomes a cosmic space opera, lightly touched by Philip K. Dick weirdness.
