- Full Description
This is both Philippe Druillet's first appearance in print, and the first of Lone Sloane--it is in French and printed in two colors, much like Barbarella. This scarce hardcover was published in 1966. Lone Sloane was then serialized in the French/Belgian magazine Pilot from February 1970 to April 1971, collected in further French editions, then revamped by the author for Metal Hurlant magazine and ultimately done in English years later. Nudity. First Edition.
From Wikipedia: "Set 800 years after a catastrophic event called the "Great Fear" the stories feature Lone Sloane, who is caught by an entity called He Who Seeks, after his space ship is destroyed. He is thrown into a different dimension, where he becomes a space rogue and freebooter with strange powers. He finds himself caught in an inter-galactic struggle between space pirates, gigantic robots, dark gods and other-dimensional entities. Very similar to Silver Surfer and Galactus, or Ulysses and the Greek Gods, he is compelled to wander in a universe that is alien to him. It is also known for the quasi-Baroque style of Druillet's artwork, which features H.P. Lovecraft's space nightmares mixed with M.C. Escher's influences."
Note: This is an out of print, used and/or rare book. It is not as-new, in "mint" condition. On the book and jacket, all four corners are lightly bumped. Bump on top right caused a very, very small crease in the first few pages. Dustjacket has about a three inch soft crease midway up on the right side. Jacket cover is bright and in full color. Druillet, the preface author Maxim Jakubowski, and the editor/writer Losfeld are all pictured on the back cover, and are they YOUNG! Druillet looks like a fanboy with black-rimmed glasses, holding a ray gun.
