International publisher Humanoids announces a new graphic novel series that will forever change the superhero landscape.

Los Angeles, California. April 1, 2017.


International graphic novel publisher Humanoids announced today the official launch of a brand new 4-issue comic book series: "The Ultimate Encounter," by multi-hyphenatecreator Alejandro Jodorowsky (story) and French rising star Valentin Secher (art). Production of the first issue, subtitled "Revenge Of The Fools," has been slated for a mid-2018 release worldwide.

Humanoids has tended to stay away from the superhero genre, but as the right elements fell into place, was thrilled at the opportunity of launching a crossover series with one of its most famous characters, The Metabaron, the Universe's Deadliest Warrior, and the iconic Batman, the World's Greatest Detective.

"The Metabaron is the ultimate warrior; strong, undefeatable, yet still very much human. That there can be only one is his tragic legacy. Pairing him with Batman, an equally complex character, was the natural choice, as he is the only superhero with no actual supernatural powers. Together, the duo are the best of both universes." said the publisher.
