Career Timeline: 2000 - Après l’Incal: Le Nouveau Rêve
Après l’Incal: Le Nouveau Rêve(After the Incal: The New Dream), is the first in a trilogy of albums that bring Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Incal story to a close. Moebius illustrated it, and passed it on to José Ladrönn, who followed it up with the gorgeous Après l’Incal: Final Incal in 2011, and is currently working on the third and final volume.
Above are the first 9 pages, published by Les Humanoïdes Associés in November 2000. The book is colored by Studio Beltran, which has been a touchy subject for some, and looks similar to the notorious recoloring of the original Incal.
[note: previously, I incorrectly credited the first page of this book as being drawn by Zoran Janjetov]
Tony Millionaire on pitching ideas for Batman:
I had one [pitch] where Batman went completely broke. His corporation went completely broke. He was like, ‘should I throw this Batarang? These cost me $550 each. I’m not really sure I can afford to throw it. I should probably just run.’ And he had to sell all his cars and ride a bicycle around. If anyone sees him on a bicycle with his costume on, they’ll catch him, so he can’t even wear that anymore. He just has to wear a t-shirt and run around. They said, “no, we’re not going to do that” [laughs]. I’d like to do a story about the real Batman, what a real Batman would be like. Just some guy, who’s not really that rich. He’d just run around and try to figure out where the crime is. In my neighborhood, all he’d be doing is running up to cars where they’re selling drugs out the window.”
