      What can I say The art is surely gorgeous. The story is basically space opera, with Galactic Empire and planet barons. Imagine simplified Dune universe.

    • Florin Pitea says:

      Well drawn, but disturbing in places. I'd have probably appreciated this graphic novel considerably more had I read it back when I was a teenager.

      The series is brilliant and absurd in parts, it’s a retelling of the family history of the Metabarons, five generation, each having their own weird tale.At the start was enjoying the art and epicenes of the world but felt the plot moved too fast without developing the characters. There were very few real dialogues, in fact the only ones I was enjoying was the banter between the two drones as the series progressed those became hornier and crazier. Chapter 4 seemed to be the turning point, more [...]

      Alejandro "El Topo" Jodorowsky also wrote several series of comics, of which this generational epic space opera seems to be a later example. This somewhat resembles a more ambitious version of 80s Heavy Metal style sci-fi pulp comics. Which makes sense as Jodorowsky was an occassional HM contributor, and worked with major 1980s sci-fi comics inspiration Mobeius to conceive this particular comic world. Anyway, the hero-saga aspect of it is sort of unthrilling to me in the way of much golden age s [...]

      Odlučio pročitati zbog komentara o inspiraciji u Dini.Da, to je vidljivo no vrlo sam zadovoljan Gimenezovim crtežom, crtežom kakav ja volim pa s toga i visoka ocjena.Priča i nije nešto ekstra, Jodorowski je uvijek pomalo kao na LSD-u no barem voli Dinu

      Reminiscent project of Jodorowsky's Dune, if we ever had one. The concept is superb and he a consummate storyteller. One word: amazeballs.

    • Paul says:

      Its OK, it verges between 2 and 3 stars. Good artwork and story just at times it could have been better.

    • Sarospice says:

      You'll fry your diodes at Jodorowsky's space opera. Gorgeous art. There are other over reaching sci fi comics but few this good.

      8/10

    • Kelly Sedinger says:

      Is there a way to do half-stars that I don't know about? Or even quarter-stars? Because I don't think METABARONS is three stars, but neither do I think it's four. I'm thinking, 3.6666667. And by the way, this review refers to the entirety of METABARONS, not just the first couple issues. This series's printing and collecting history is pretty muddy, and I'm just not sure which would best cover the entire series, so I'm putting this here, at the beginningTABARONS tells the long, epic tale of a ser [...]

    • Alexander Lisovsky says:

      "Метабаронов", касту легендарных межгалактических воинов, придумали и мельком упомянули в знаменитом Incal (1981) Алехандро Ходоровски и Жан Жиро (Мёбиус). Десять лет спустя Ходоровски решил развить тему, уже совместно с аргентинским художником Хуаном Гименезом. Long story short, нари [...]

    • Mars Dorian says:

      I've read all four book compilations and the two spin-offs, so this review encompasses them all.In short, Meta Baron is a mental sci-fantasy epos about a 'family' that survives in a colonized, corrupt and hostile universe. The caste, a mix of Japanese Samurai warrior epos and European Aristocracy, crowns their male offspring by cutting off body parts and replacing them with cybernetic attachments. The new Meta Baron than fights his previous father to death to carry on the legacy. In the grand ep [...]

    • Tim says:

      This is really an amazing comic book (can I call it that?)a rich, super-detailed world lavishly illustrated short, everything I love about (and loved about) comics.From what I can gather, there is a sprawling "Metabarons" universe out there, and this graphic novel begins pulling the tale and major characters together. The story revolves around a hyper-technical, far-flung, wild-idea'd future reminiscent of Vinge's "A Fire Upon The Deep." Massive, cosmos-shattering, almost comically hyperbolized [...]

    • Rick says:

      Much like in its more popular media siblings of film and prose, the comics landscape is littered with science fiction tropes, often woefully mediocre. Yet The Metabarons, co-created by Jodorowsy and Moebius with illustrations by Gimenez, shines. The series explores the dynamic history of the ultimate bloodline of warriors by following the lineage of fighters as they struggle against institutionalized greed and terror. The Metabarons: Path of the Warrior expertly depicts their origins. Gimenez's [...]

    • Richard says:

      With all the hype around it, I expected much more, but still it was quite good :)

    • Stephen says:

      I watched a movie directed by this author and it was edgy, but too intentionally artsy and it was clear that he was unprepared for the director's helm. Forty years later, however, the mature Jodorowsky is clearly ready to blow you away with a sci-fi tale that puts most sci-fi movies and many sci-fi novels to shame. YOU WILL LOVE THIS!

    • Mike Jozic says:

      What became of Jodorowsky's Dune? Why, it became The Metabarons. After seeing the documentary I was inspired to go back and read these fantastic books. They hold up and do not disappoint. I Love the story and art. This is epic space opera at its finest.

    • Santiago Giraldo says:

      How did the no-name Metabaron become the most feared warrior in the universe? Jodorowsky and Juan Gimenez do their best to try and answer all the loose ends regarding one of the most interesting characters created for the Incal series. The artwork is fabulous, as is the storytelling.

    • Nikolay Nikiforov says:

      Reads like an Icelandic saga, looks like Aleister Crowley's Tarot drawings. With its unashamedly fascistic vibes, it's much more fun and unpredictable than Star Wars' cryptofascism.

    • Mikolaj says:

      Rather naive space opera with Conan-like protagonist and plot. It's still quite enjoyable mostly due to visual side of the volume.

    • Sergio says:

      Incredible art and a great story.

    • Jan Argasiński says:

      Diuna-like, gorgeous SF.

    • Alfie says:

      la panicas fabulas, el jodo concocts a cock-tail of severely fucked up surrealist sci-fi that puts el topo, the holy mountain and santa sangre to shame.

    • Oliver Hodson says:

      Really fun story- more extravagant than the incal and more fun because jodo has so much fun with the extremes of metabaron culture, contrasting with the human norm of john r. difool.

    • Cesar says:

      The imagination of visionary filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky,set loose with no limitations.This is his Star Wars, his Dune, infused with his brand if mysticism and violence.

    • Lukasz says:

      Testosterone fueled, misogynistic tales of mutilation. Unfortunately derivative of a dozen earlier ideas, Dune notwithstanding. The second star is earned by Gimenez's art.

    • Timothy Boyd says:

      Great SiFi comic. Excellent art and story. Not the normal comic story, a very well done SiFi comic. Very recommended

    • Jojo says:

      Loved so far, but I just can't take Othon seriously when he is crying about his antigravity baby ;)

    • Ken-ichi says:

      I suspect this is about as incoherent as the incal, but I just watched and enjoyed Jodorowski's Dune so I'm in a forgiving mood.

    • Mario Venegas says:

      Muy buena historia y dibujos acorde
