Albina and the dog-men : a fantastical novel by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in Spanish and English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A darkly funny, surreal novel set in Chile and Peru, Albina and the Dog-Men is Alejandro Jodorowsky's sprawling modern myth in which sexual desire appears as a dangerous and generative force that mutates and transforms, unraveling identities and rending the social and moral fabric of a small town. Written with the stunning vision and cinematic flair he brought to his cult 1970s psychedelic freak-out films El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky turns the classic stranger-comes-to-town narrative on its head in his novel Albina and the Dog-Men. When two women--a beautiful amnesiac albino giantess and her protector, a leather-tough woman called Crabby--arrive in this South American desert town, Albina's otherworldly allure and unfettered sensuality turns men into wild animals. Chased at the same time by a clubfoot criminal, Albina and Crabby must fend off their aggressors before the town consumes itself in an orgy of lust and violence

"Spanning multiple decades and continents, this phantasmagorical epic is the result of a unique collaboration between an award-winning American author and the famous French illustrator of Alejandro Jodorowsky's Bouncer. Writer Jerome Charyn and artist Francois Boucq combine their talents to recount a surrealistic tale about the wife of a philandering magician and her struggles with terrifying demons, both real and imaginary. Originally published as La Femme du magicien, The Magician's Wife was awarded the 1986 Prix Alfred and the Grand Prix (Sierre). The English-language version has been out of print for three decades, during which time the graphic novel has developed a deep cult following, this new edition promises to mesmerize a new generation of readers"--

Das Geheimnis der Schlangen wird gelüftet: In Barro-City herrscht noch immer Unordnung, manche "wichtige" Persönlichkeiten sind bisher durch Schlangenbisse zu Tode gekommen und der einarmige Bouncer ist dabei, die (in Band 3) geschworene Rache fortzusetzen. Diese spannende, etwas grobe Geschichte mit detailreichen Zeichnungen aus dem Wilden Westen ist eine echte Wildwest-Geschichte. Das Geheimnis der Schlangen und der mysteriösen Tode, die Verknüpfungen zu den hier ehemals ansässigen Indianern werden aufgelöst, die Beziehungskisten gezimmert und Familien- und Tyrannengeschichten sowie die Erfüllung der Heldenpflicht in diesem letzten Band stilgerecht zu Ende gebracht.
