- Full Description
A new edition of the ground-breaking 1972 graphic novel. 800 years after a catastrophic event called the "Great Fear", Lone Sloane, a troubled space traveler, is captured by an entity called "He Who Seeks" after his space ship is destroyed. The entity transports him to different dimensions, where he, like a sci-fi Ulysses, faces a myriad of Lovecraftian challenges!
This is one of several graphic novels, all now being reprinted, that made Druillet the most popular French artist/creator in the U.S. He took direction from Jack Kirby and from epic works of science fiction and wove an amazing, galaxy-spanning novel of a scale never before explored in comics. This was one of the very first French graphic novels to be translated (along with Barbarella) but even before that, we were importing this and it was a bestseller for the artwork alone, in the original French albums.
As mentioned above, Druillet also incorporates H.P. Lovecraft horror mythos, along with some psychedelic touches, influences from Michael Moorcock's Elric...it's a wondrous melting pot of grand themes, panoramic artwork and Star Wars-like storytelling.
