Moebius 3 (1988)
22 x 28.5cm, 315 pages
Moebius 3 is the third volume of a limited edition of 1500, signed & numbered hardback collection of beautiful, bound, books published by Graphitti Designs that collects and reprints the acclaimed trade paperbacks that were originally published by Marvel/Epic Comics.
The book jacket of Moebius 3 features a blown up panel of Class “R” Detective John Difool (the protagonist of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Moebius’ epic story The Incal) as he is about to be thrown over the edge by masked men, centred and framed on a forest green. Once the book jacket is taken off, it reveals underneath a leafy green faux leather hardcover with embossed gold foil stamped “The Incal” title in serif type and in the bottom-right hand a unique embossed Starwatcher hand drawn styled circular icon.
This volume collects Marvel/Epic Comics’ The Incal 1, The Incal 2 and The Incal 3 paperbacks which contains all 6 books of The Incal which are:
The Black Incal,
The Luminous Incal,
What Lies Beneath,
What Is Above,
The Fifth Essence – Part One: The Dreaming Galaxy,
The Fifth Essence – Part Two: Planet Difool.
Both the Marvel/Epic Comics paperbacks and the Graphitti Designs hardback books are sadly now long out of print, rare editions that are much sought after today. Amazingly, Graphitti Designs still has copies in stock of Moebius 4-9 (at the time of writing) and is available online through their website here.
