Comics on Summer Vacation

In 24 hours, I will be deep in mosquitos and brush. Yes, this is how I spend my summer vacations: in Northern Ontario, secluded in a cabin in the woods with friends, family, Labatt Blue, and the fickle weather. My bags may not yet be packed, but I’ve been saving several comics collections and graphic novels for months in preparation for my trip. I have comics for sunny days on the dock, rainy days by the fireplace, quiet nights while the loons call to one another, and mornings full of blueberry pancakes and records. I always pack too many books and leave a few in the cabin to rediscover next year.

Up first is The Incal: Classic Collection by Alexandro Jodorowsky and Moebius (Humanoids). A friend recently clued me in to cult film director Jodorowsky’s second life as a comics writer. I started with The Metabarons and moved to The Technopriests, but both series spin out of  The Incal, which has been in and out of print for decades. UK publisher Humanoids recently released this edition, and I quickly secured a copy--but chances are this print run will not last long. Jodorowsky’s sci-fi world contains bizarre, perverse, and challenging concepts at the turn of every page, and legendary illustrator Moebius is the perfect complement to bring them all to life.

I bring some comics alongside graphic novels when I travel. I am an avid follower of DC Comics and I bring them to have something to read during the long flights.
