Legendary filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky (The Incal, Metabarons) and virtuosic illustrator José Ladrönn (Cable, Incredible Hulk) deliver a sequel to Jodorowsky’s cult classic film, El Topo.
El Topo was once a bandit without limits, a man with no moral compass, until his journey through the desert brought him to religion and enlightenment. As he became a holy vessel imbued with the power to perform miracles, he left behind his first born son Cain, and brought forth 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.
BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at The Sons of El Topo Volume One: Cain, a hardcover original graphic novel, available in December 19th 2018 at comic shops and December 25th at bookstores, 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.
The merciless gunslinger El Topo has abandoned his pursuit of ultimate gun mastery to find enlightenment in the unlikeliest of places and is forever transformed, becoming a holy vessel imbued with the power to perform miracles and cheat death. But just as he gains sainthood, tragedy strikes as his community of outcasts is murdered before his eyes and his long-abandoned Hijo, Cain, returns to kill the father who discarded him many years ago.
Fueled by resentment but unable to strike his saintly father, Cain instead vows to hunt down his half-brother Abel, leading to an astonishing quest in The Sons of El Topo Volume One: Cain, featuring a haunting cover by José Ladrönn, and continuing the legend in graphic novel format.
