More psychedelia of a sort although it’s arguable whether Alejandro Jodorowsky’s cosmic surrealism can ever be pigeon-holed so easily. Fabulas Panicas (Panic Fables) is a comic strip that Jodorowsky was writing and drawing for a Mexican newspaper in the late Sixties. The text is all in Spanish, of course, but going by the visuals in the examples gathered on this site the concerns seem to be the usual Jodorowsky fare. Jay Babcock who provided the tip (thanks Jay!) interviewed Jodorowsky in 2003 and the conversation touched on this as well as his other comic works.
