    • Βαθμολογία: 7/10Αρκετά παράξενο κόμικ, με ελάχιστο κείμενο, που "διαβάζεται" μέσα σε λίγη ώρα αλλά σου μένει στο μυαλό για αρκετές στιγμές μετά το τέλος της ανάγνωσης. Το σχέδιο πολύ καλό και ιδιαίτερο, είναι σίγουρα το πιο δυνατό κομμάτι της συγκεκριμένης δημιουργίας. Πάντως, [...]



    • I'm not even sure what to say about this. Weird? Really weird. And a bit creepy honestly. Very quick to read because there isn't much text but you can't stop looking at the pictures because you're thinking what the fuck is happening. Not something I should have read before going to bed.


    • Arte incrível, história perturbadora. O trabalho é de encher os olhos, e o final tem aquela sensação de choque tão conhecida nos trabalhos dele. Aconselho ler sem saber do que se trata. Pena ser tão curtinha :)




    • It was like viewing a painting that was spread over several pages, each page being laid out stage of that painting.


    • Довольно странная небольшая история, превосходным образом нарисованная в духе классических гравюр Гюстава Доре, практически без текста. Во вступительном слове - которое, как это часто бывает, начисто спойлит весь сюжет, так что рекомендую прочитать его потом - Ходоровски [...]


    • This story is slight but in its way shocking enough to be effective. Of all the Jodorowsky and Moebius collaborations, this is the least Jodorowsky influenced. Yes, the landscape is vaguely post-apocalyptic and, yes, it is utterly strange. Yet most of the joy of this comic comes from the clean line work of Meobius contrasted with half-tone printing. The introductory notes are quite interesting, particularly if you have not seen the documentary on Jodorowsky's Dune, and the art is vaguely horrify [...]


    • Libro muy pero muy bonito y bastante complejo para su poca longitud. Aunque no suelo tener en cuenta el precio para evaluar una obra, este me parece tan demencialmente caro que me tira para atrás a la hora de evaluar si comprarlo alguna vez.Lo que no puedo negar es que Jodorowsky y Moebius juntos son una de las duplas imbatibles de la historia del comic mundial.


    • This is a brutal short science fiction comic. Each page contains one panel of stark black-and-white art and maybe a sentence of text. The overall effect is profound, but not pleasant. These images will stay burned into the back of my mind for a long time.


    • After reading this I immediately had to read it again, having seen the ending. This is very short, but well plotted and self-contained, and the ending lingers while prompting further questions about the nature of the world being painted in the story.



    • Çizimler harika! Her birini çerçeveletip asabilirsiniz. Sadece 25 resimde böylesine güçlü bir hikaye nasıl anlatılır, inanamıyorum. Neyse ki çizgi roman seven ve ona bütçe ayıran bir kardeşim var, yoksa bu kitabı ancak Kindle'dan okuyabilirdim ama kitabın kendisine dokunmanın, her bir çizgiyi izlemenin keyfine de varamazdım (Not: Kardeşimin kitabı kimseye ödünç vereceğini sanmıyorum, eldiven giyip okuyacaktım az kalsın). Çok beğendim, kesinlikle tavsiye ederim


    • Fascinatingly StrangeArtists should be able to explore unusual topics. I would be amazed to see an exhibit organized at a museum with a short story theme with large panels, and wander through a quiet space with others and share the experience. I wonder if Jodorowsky has exhibited works in this fashion.





    • Haunting, creepy, and unsettling but Moebius' pencils won't let you take your eyes away (no pun intended, haha).


    • Produced a visceral reaction in me of revulsion and awe. One of the single most effective pieces of visual storytelling that I've ever encountered.


    • Primera obra de una colaboración que duró 30 años, casi hasta la muerte de Moebius, 'Los ojos del gato' es imposible de describir de manera precisa. Como en 'Arzach', este es un mundo que es a la vez extraño y reconocible. La historia esta basada en una ciudad futurística. Moebius crea un mundo austero en que no hay ningún aspecto superfluo; las lineas son rectas y la combinación de colores limitado más o menos a negro y amarillo. El guión de Alejandro Jodorowsky es aún más minimalist [...]


    • Pure impulse buy at my local comics shop. I've been on a Jodorowsky kick lately (I'm working my way through his films and have already read The Incal and some of The Metabarons) so this shouldn't surprise anyone.The first graphic novel collaboration between Jodo and Mœbius gives us twenty-four full page illustrations with minimal dialogue, as part of Jodo's attempt to do something unconventional while trying to subvert commercial constraints. (He says as much in his introduction to this 2013 ed [...]


    • Mais um livro da parceria Jodorowsky e Moebius, autores da famosa trilogia do Incal.A arte é a já conhecida de Moebius, um grande artista do gênero. Mas este é um álbum em preto e branco, com uma organização radical, utilizando somente um quadro por página. Portanto, uma história bem curta. E impactante.A Editora Nemo vem publicando importantes trabalhos em quadrinhos, e esta é uma publicação recente, de 2015, de um trabalho destes autores traduzido para o português. Conta com um pr [...]


    • Jodorowsky es un CONCHETUMADRE y Moebius no hace más que avivarle la cueca. Te advierto, no esperes un mensaje de autoayuda en este relato ni la aventura del gran héroe. Tan sólo déjate deslizar en los trazos de Moebius y afirmarte de los diálogos de Alejandro, que en cualquier momento te asalta su brutal y grotesco climax. Bienvenido a la primera obra de esta gran dupla histórica de los cómics.


    • An extraordinary piece of comics-as-art work by Moebius and Jodorowsky, originally dating from 1977-78. The power of Moebius large, full-page, black-and-white drawings is overwhelming, gripping the reader and rendering the storytelling with that intense, condensed atmosphere that is so much Moebius.On top of it all, the Danish 200-copy limited edition by Farao is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship.Always worth reading again.


    • Without reading the introduction and history of the author and artist this would be a pretty confusing WTF Graphic novel. I have a feeling the hardcopy book doesn't truly capture the beauty of the artwork because it's all so dark. I think certain frames would be more impressive in large framed prints that capture the detail. Make money off collectors to put it up as artwork.


    • A very short, yet potent tale by Jodorowsky and Moebius. The artwork is absolutely breathtaking, and though it only takes about five minutes to read, this definitely bears the stamp of Jodo's bizarre, madness-inducing storytelling. A simple tale, a great example of meta-fiction, accompanied by absolutely absorbing, gorgeous artwork, made somehow even cooler by the yellow paper stock.


    • It might be unfair to rate this a four out of five. It is a classic and I can see why with the art and simple story. Yet, it feels like a prologue to something much bigger and bolder that was not realized.


    • I read Nick's copy while standing in his living room, in about five minutes' time. (It was in English, by the way.) It was beautifully illustrated but a very very quick read. Very short book but rich in technique.


    • Very weird and mostly wordless. This is some prime Moebius stuff. The into by Jodorowsky was an interesting look into its creation and the history of their collaboration starting with the never completed Dune movie.
