Description:
Lone Sloane is a science fiction comics character created in 1966 by the French cartoonist Philippe Druillet.

Publication history

Lone Sloane's first episode was that of Druillet's very debut, Mystère des Abîmes, published in 1966. The following stories were published on the French magazine Pilote from February 1970 to April 1971. The series was subsequently revamped by the author for the magazine Metal Hurlant.

Plot

The stories are set in a future 800 years after a catastrophic event called the "Great Fear". Lone Sloane, after his spaceship has self-destructed, is launched into space and caught by an abstract entity, He Who Seeks. He is then thrown into a different dimension, where he is turned into a cursed space rogue and freebooter with red eyes and strange powers. He finds himself caught in an inter-galactic struggle featuring space pirates, gigantic robots, dark gods and other-dimensional entities. In a way not so different from the Silver Surfer and Galactus, or Ulysses and Greek Gods, he is compelled to wander without an end in a universe which is alien to him. A striking feature is also the quasi-Baroque style of Druillet's artwork, which renders in a personal way Lovecraft's space nightmares mixed with M.C. Escher's influences.
