Support the ACLU!

Wednesday, February 1, 2017


At HUMANOIDS we want to support ACLU by giving 100% of the profits from the following four books during the month of February.

So if you want to take a stand against ignorance, show your support for ACLU by Buying A Book!  It's that simple!  The titles are:

A genre-bending work of political science fiction, where the rulers of the future are haunted by the ghosts of the past… Written and illustrated in stunning color by Ukrainian green-card lottery winning creator Igor Baranko.

The travel diary of French two brothers in a land at war. Based on the siblings' real life experiences in war-torn Lebanon.

A unique and addictive anthropomorphic mystery with an intricate plot and an immigrant hero, rendered in stark black-and-white. Winner of best series at the Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2012.

According to Tobe Hooper "It's disgusting, fun and politically right on target!" A book full of alt-right nuts and rednecks who are way more dangerous that the peaceful living-impaired (just don't call them zombies!).

L.A. based graphic novel company HUMANOIDS has today revealed the new logo of its most iconic brand, METAL.

Friday, January 20, 2017

L.A. based graphic novel company HUMANOIDS has today revealed the new logo of its most iconic brand, METAL.


The brand was created in 1974, along with the legendary comic book magazine METAL HURLANT (French for "Screaming Metal"), founded by creators Moebius, Druillet and Dionnet, and that later inspired the creation of numerous foreign versions, including Heavy Metal magazine in the U.S.

Designed by Humanoids' Senior Art Director, Jerry Frissen, the new logo will be used in connection with new projects that will be announced later in the year, in both the publishing and entertainment fields.

From Fabrice Giger, Humanoids' CEO, who has steered the company for much of its history: "Since the 70s, METAL has been part of worldwide pop culture. It has always been a symbol of the strong ties that exists between the comic book world and the movie industry. BLADE RUNNER and MAD MAX's creators, to name only a few, shared the same creative and innovative spirit. A spirit that has never faltered across Humanoids' many ventures, and that is now being revitalized in the form of this new logo and movement!"
