The Jodorowsky Library: a collection of deluxe matching volumes cumulating the iconic works of the legendary Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Included in this volume are the bawdy secret agent tale ANIBAL 5 (illustrated by Georges Bess) and the sci-fi epic MEGALEX (illustrated by Fred Beltran), along with a selection of stories from SCREAMING PLANET with artwork by Adi Granov, Axel Medellin, and other comics art legends.

Includes previously unseen bonus materials and extras, including rare pages from Jodorowsky’s never-reprinted comics debut in 1966!

Born February 7th, 1929, in Tocopilla, Chile, of a Jewish Ukrainian immigrant family.

Jodorowsky was multi-talented from an early age, becoming skilled in puppetry and mime, in addition to writing, by his late teens. He traveled with a pantomime troupe in the 1950s, and within a couple years had made his way to Paris where he collaborated with the world-renowned mime Marcel Marceau.

In the 1960s, Jodorowsky ventured further into the world of theater, creating in Mexico, the Panic Movement. This innovative artistic movement allowed him to creatively participate in over a 100 theater productions. The 1970s saw him transition into the world of film where he quickly put a defining stamp on all his cinematic works. He directed several cult films, namely the infamous "El Topo," a Midnight movie favorite. Shortly thereafter, Jodorowsky became attached to direct the adaptation of the famous Frank Herbert sci-fi epic novel "Dune." At the preparation stage of the film, he brilliantly assembled a team of extremely diverse and gifted artists such as HR Giger, Chris Foss, Dan O'Bannon, and Moebius, all of who would later be hired as concept artists on Ridley Scott's "Alien." The development of "Dune" came to a halt due to financial problems, but Jodorowsky, having been exposed to such immense visual talent, propelled himself into writing graphic novels, pairing up with the artist Moebius. This collaboration resulted in what many consider to be one of the most creative European sci-fi graphic novel series of all time, "The Incal," which went on to sell millions of copies worldwide.

Since penning "The Incal," Jodorowsky continued writing top selling comic books with a wide variety of Europe's most talented artists, such as "The White Lama" (with Bess), "The Metabarons" (with Gimenez), "The Technopriests" (with Janjetov), and most recently "Bouncer" (with Boucq).

Along with nurturing his many other talents, Jodorowsky remains a unique storyteller whose published contributions have secured his status as one of the world's most prolific graphic novel writers.

Fred Beltran is active in several creative fields. He works as a comics artist, but also as a prolific musician. Beltran saw his first comic album published in 1988. In the early 1990s, he contributed to the collective album “Eros Gone Wild” at Humanoids and pursued a subsequent career in architecture, illustration and theatre stage design. Since 1994, Beltran has mostly used the computer on all his comics work, including the coloring of the series “The Technopriests.” Also in 1994, the first album of his new band Les Snails is released. Beltran cooperated with the Japanese publishing house Kodansha between 1995 and 1997, producing the series “Nina.”

Georges Bess is a French artist, best known for his collaboration with Alexandro Jodorowsky. He moved to Sweden in the early 1970s and it is there that he did his first artistic jobs under his own name or under the pseudonyms Tideli and Nisseman. He cooperated with the Swedish “Mad” magazine, and from 1977 to 1987, drew stories with “The Phantom.” In the early 1980s, Bess accidentally traveled to Tibet and became very impressed with the country. It was shortly thereafter that he met and began collaborating with Jodorowsky, in what would become a long and successful collaborative partnership.

Adi Granov is a Bosnian - born comic book artist and conceptual designer. He was named in August 2004 as one of Marvel Comics' "Young Guns", and from there built a remarkable career in the industry working with such creators as Warren Ellis (
Iron Man) and in doing film design work (
Iron Man, Black Panther, Avengers: Endgame).

Axel Medellin is a comics and conceptual artist whose work has been seen in
Heavy Metal, Metal Hurlant, Zenoscope titles, and
