EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: Jodorowsky’s ‘The Deluxe Magalex’ From Humanoids

by Olly MacNamee

You don’t have to be European to have a Life-long love affair with the sprawling sci-fi sagas of Alejandro Jodorowsky, but I think it helps. Having grown up here in the UK with his work on such epics as The Incal and The Metabarons and other works spinning out of his “Judoverse” I’m pretty thrilled by the release of The Deluxe Magalex from Humanoids and even more thrilled that we have an exclusive preview to share with you today. Written by Jodorowsky with exceptional art by Fred Beltran, look out for The Deluxe Magalex available Wednesday 15th November from Humanoids.

“An original Sci-Fi adventure of rebellion against a totalitarian and oppressive world, as only imagined by master storyteller Alejandro Jodorowsky.

On Megalex, the city-planet, the laws of nature are prohibited. The tyrannical order reigns over a renewed population controlled by genetic manipulation. Due to the repeated attacks of the neighboring forest, primitive and impenetrable, the urbanized system in command allowed an ‘anomaly,’ a clone policeman nearly 10 ft tall, to escape. Guided by Adama, one of the rebels fighting for their freedom, the gentle giant manages to join the camp of the ‘objectors’ and help them go up against the evil powers of Megalex.

At long-last back in print in a gorgeous oversized deluxe edition for the first time, this is the definitive way to enjoy this classic sci-fi epic. Experience the art in the way it was meant to be.”
