Madwoman of the Sacred Heart
Story by Alexandro Jodorowsky, Art by Mœbius

Alan Mangel has it all. As a popular Philosophy Professor at the world famous Université de La Sorbonne, he is wealthy, married and academically acclaimed. On his sixtieth birthday, however, Alan's life will crumble as Elisabeth, a beautiful young student, claims she received a vision from God that he is to impregnate her with the second-coming of John the Baptist. As Alan gives himself up to the wild forces bullying him through life, he engages on a spiritual journey that challenges his very "reality." Everything once true is proven to be false. Everything once false is proven to be true.
