Dark Lord of Delirious Detail

From the pages of Metal Hurlant, here’s one of the artists whose works never fail to fire the imagination.  These are a few pages from the works of psychedelic comic artist and painter Philippe Druillet, whose science-fantasy Sloane series simply drips with sexy, horrific, and highly mythological details.  Enjoy.

I’ve been looking for copies of his comics in English, having been first introduced to them through the Heavy Metal serialization of Salammbo, his adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s work.  Still no luck.

  1. Druillet is great. It's hard to find a lot of his work in English, though, as you say.

  2. Yup. I also want to find more of the Spanish artists, they have quite a lot of good fantasy stuff too.
