With The Incal #10, I didn't know what to expect. This comic book is a futuristic mixture of Bladerunner and Rollerblade. The characters are so bizarre and I am starting to understand what the richest bitchlorette is all about.

Speaking of weird, that Diavaloo is beyond weirdness, he's just plain freaky. The computerized pairings recorder is a strange way to show a bonding/marriage between a couple. A machine that creates an everlasting tattoo. Luz didn't know what she got herself into, when marrying Diavaloo. The legal bond of concubinage will become the nightmare of her life. Luz gets herself in trouble quickly.

The only good thing that occurred in this story is when John DiFool is promoted to private detective - class R. With the harem satellite circling the globe, Luz is tied up and raped by a Diavaloo clone. Then to find out that there are many more clones who are ready and willing to violently act upon Luz. Each time Luz kills a clone another one can take its place and the clones don't mind being murdered.

Like I said once before, I love this sci-fi strangeness, it definitely blows me away!
