Dark Incal trailer
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.
