Bramble

Story by Jean-David Morvan, art by Nesmo

When a mysterious giant of a man arrives in a vast steampunk megalopolis, death walks beside him, leaving a trail of corpses in their wake. It’s up to a dysfunctional yet dogged police investigator to find the strange colossus and stop him before the bodies pile even higher… But soon the truth is discovered that this case is far more complicated than the detective could’ve possibly conceived: a veritable battle between nature and city is unfolding, whose very outcome could forever change the face of the earth.

A ecological detective story told amid a backdrop of fantasy
and science-fiction.

Megalex - Spotlight Preview

Megalex

Story by Alexandro Jodorowsky, art by Fred Beltran

On Megalex, the city-planet, the laws of nature are prohibited. The tyrannical order reigns over a renewed population controlled by genetic manipulation. Due to the repeated attacks of the neighboring forest, primitive and impenetrable, the urbanized system in command allowed an 'anomaly,' a clone policeman nearly 10 ft tall, to escape. Guided by Adama, one of the rebels fighting for their freedom, the gentle giant manages to join the camp of the 'objectors' and help them go up against the evil powers of Megalex. Straight from the untamed minds of Alexandro Jodorowsky (The Incal, The Metabarons) and Fred Beltran (The Technopriests).


Quicks facts about Megalex:

Alexandro Jodorowsky found Fred Beltran due to Beltran's chance encounter of meeting Jodorowsky's son at a music show. Beltran expressed his love of Jodorowsky's work and he passed the words onto his father.

Fred Beltran is known for his digital work, mixing 2D and 3D techniques to create vast digital landscapes, but - as seen in this title - can also switch back to a more classical drawing style and process.

• New edition of the complete story, featuring an all-new afterword.

Megalex is set in the "Jodoverse", alongside The Incal series, The Metabarons series, and The Technopriests.

Jodorowsky originally wrote Megalex for the creator of Akira, Katsuhiro Otomo.

El Niño

Story by Christian Perrissin, art by Boro Pavlovic

After the death of her father, Red Cross nurse Vera Michailov discovers a stunning family secret: she was a conjoined twin and has a brother she was separated from at birth. Left behind when the family escaped Eastern Europe for France, he grew up to become the modern-day pirate known only as “El Niño.” Determined to find him, regardless of the cost, Vera sets out on a global quest for acceptance and salvation.

Quicks facts about El Niño:

Christian Perrissin is a prolific French comics creator, who wrote the historical adventure graphic novel, Cape Horn for Humanoids. He is known for his historical and geopolitical themes infused with a strong sense of adventure.

Boro Pavlovic is a Croatian comics artist based in Oslo. He has drawn several Scandinavian series including, James Bond, Modesty Blaise, Agent X-9 and The Phantom.

El Niño was the result of a patient process. Perrissin was given the time to complete the entire script before even searching for an artist.

This is the first time the entire story is available in English. This 392 page edition compiles all 7 original tomes.

• In a rarity for European comics, the story features a strong female character as the lead. Defying stereotypes, Vera Mikhailov is intelligent, strong, and a determined heroine.

San Diego Comic-Con Wrap-up

Friday, August 1, 2014

San Diego Comic-Con is a name revered in the entertainment industry. Every year over 100,000 fans attend to pick up their favorite books, meet their favorite actor, and dress up as their favorite characters.

Humanoids had an amazing time participating in the biggest show of the year. It was a pleasure to meet the fans, hear experiences and feedback, and be able to introduce new readers to our catalog.

The stand-out of the booth was of course, José Ladrönn, artist of Final Incal, who signed hundreds of items for many fans who were eager to see his and Jodorowsky's work. Comic fans come in all forms, including other industry professionals and this year was no different as several notable names dropped by to share a warm welcome to Humanoids as well as showing appreciation to Ladrönn.

Below are a handful of photos taken at the booth (With more possibly coming on Facebook).
