Madwoman of the Sacred Heart by Jodorowsky and Mœbius

Posted by on February 22nd, 2011 at 4:00 PM

While radically different from his work in cinema, Jodorowsky’s comics are still a weird amalgam of genres and influences. His first collaboration with Mœbius, The Incal, was essentially the fool’s journey of the Tarot, written as a pseudo-religious space opera. There is an even stranger turnaround here, as Madwoman of the Sacred Heart takes the gospels and turns them into an erotic noir thriller.
