A selection of pages from the Lone Sloane comics by Philippe Druillet. I’ve been re-reading my old Dragon’s Dream collection of these comics and I’m pleasantly surprised at how well they hold up. Visually, the art remains stunning, which is no surprise at all, but even the narrative is sound and bizarre and wonderful. Druillet sometimes get a bad rap, with his stories described as incomprehensible and clunky. I honestly don’t believe that to be true. The Lone Sloane stories in particular have the structure and tone of myth, which to me is the best kind of story.
