El Topo by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Visual )

21 editions published between 1971 and 2021 in 5 languages and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El Topo decides to confront warrior Masters on a trans-formative desert journey he begins with his 6 year old son, who must bury his childhood totems to become a man.

Alexandro Jodorowsky's The holy mountain by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Visual )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2021 in 4 languages and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plot follows a Christ-like character--the Thief--found lying in a dusty street, covered with flies and his own urine until being rescued/resurrected by a partial-limbed dwarf and a gang of naked boys. He then wanders through the city observing the madness of modern life, including a massacre of protesters by riot soldiers photographed by rich tourists and a tribute to the Spanish conquest of Mexico re-enacted by costumed lizards on a scale model of Aztec pyramids. The Thief joins a group of emblematic figures based on the Tarot assembled by the Alchemist to attack the mountaintop fortress of society's rulers, the Immortals. An almost purely visual bit of pop-philosophical fluff, it has been interpreted as a satire on the pretentious artistic community, the dehumanized industrial work force, the lazy bourgeois, the rigid police state, and organized religion--overlaid with the stealthy paternalism common in the '70s counterculture
