"Jodorowsky has been a complete genius with his work. When someone wants to put so much effort into their work, it is hard not to admire the end result. The Screaming Planet will most definitely leave you admiring."
"Audiences familiar with ‘2000AD’ will immediately find solace in this text; yet the book also succeeds as a solid introduction for those not familiar with either the anthologized narrative format or even Jodorowsky's writing."
"Just calling this a regular anthology would be unfair. ‘Screaming Planet’ puts together one of Europe’s visionary writers with a regular who’s who of artistic talent. Jodorowsky seamlessly steps out of his long term serial comfort zone and delivers some distinctive short stories playing to the strengths of his artists who all get their moment in the sun. Just watch your head for chunks of screaming rocks!"

About the Author
Alejandro Jodorowsky (also known as Alexandro Jodorowsky) is a Chilean film and theatre director, screenwriter, playwright, actor, comic book writer, author, poet, mime, musician, and spiritual guru. He is best known for his avant-garde, cult films, such as "El Topo," a Midnight movie favorite, or "Santa Sangre." In the mid 1970s, he became attached to direct the adaptation of the famous Frank Herbert sci-fi epic novel "Dune." He brilliantly assembled a team of extremely diverse and gifted artists such as HR Giger, Chris Foss, Dan O'Bannon, and Mœbius, all of who would later be hired to work on Ridley Scott's "Alien." "Dune" was never produced, but Jodorowsky, having been exposed to such immense visual talent, propelled himself into writing graphic novels, pairing up with the artist Mœbius. 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." 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 Georges Bess), "The Metabarons" (with Juan Gimenez), "The Technopriests" (with Zoran Janjetov), and most recently "Bouncer" (with François Boucq).
