BOOM! Studios Releases a First Look at Alejandro Jodorowsky’s The Sons of El Topo
BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at The Sons of El Topo Volume One: Cain, a hardcover original graphic novel from legendary filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky and virtuosic illustrator José Ladrönn that continues the 1970 Mexican Acid Western film written, scored, directed by and starring Alejandro Jodorowsky himself.
This sequel, arriving in stores December 2018, tells the story of El Topo—a bandit without limits and a man with no moral compass. But when his journey through the arid west brought him face to face with a series of rogue outcasts, he found enlightenment in the unlikeliest place and was forever transformed, becoming a holy vessel imbued with the power to perform miracles. This was a journey that took him far from his first born son, Cain, and brought about the birth of Abel.
Fueled by resentment, and unable to kill his saintly father, Cain begins the slow pursuit of his half-brother in a tale of magic and mayhem in The Sons of El Topo Volume One: Cain, featuring a haunting cover by José Ladrönn, and continuing the mythic tale only in graphic novel format.
