The Incal is to Scala what Why’s Poignant Guide is to Ruby

moebiuswidepanels If Ruby has a comic, they why not Scala? The Incal is a graphic novel collaboration between Alejandro Jodorowski and the French Comic artist Moebius.  Set in the future, on first read, it makes little sense at all. The main protagonist, an everyman called John DiFool is pulled into an intergalactic, trans-dimensional, intra-personal journey of epic proportions.  He frequently has no idea what is going on, and is put through some terrible, but ultimately transformative experiences on his way to ultimate enlightenment.moebius-incal-scan1

At the moment, it feels a bit like that with me and Scala, without the ultimate enlightenment; but then in The Incal, that’s hard fought, and utterly transformative. 

Chunky bacon!
