Press Release: Humanoids Goes Digital

Thursday, March 27, 2014


Los Angeles, CA – March 27, 2014 – Humanoids enters the digital arena by offering its extensive catalog of high quality graphic novels through its own app — simply titled Humanoids Comics — as well as via Google Play and the iBookStore.

The publisher of The Incal, the international bestseller created by Jodorowsky and Mœbius, started delivering its titles in the digital format a few months ago, by giving readers that bought a physical book from the Humanoids online store free access to the corresponding digital eBook online. Now, Humanoids customers will have the choice of buying the physical + digital eBook pack (with the equivalent digital edition still being offered at no additional cost), or the digital eBook only. New titles will be offered on the same day as their physical editions arrive in stores, embracing the industry standard “Day-and-Date” policy.

Humanoids, Inc. Director, Alex Donoghue, said, “To give people the chance to get a real ride through our many universes, the downloading of the Humanoids App will come with a $25 credit to be spent on the purchase of any first volume of any of our series. This offer, which will be available for a month, will be a great opportunity for our readers to discover new titles, as well explore the Humanoids App as not just a graphic novel and comics reader, but also a useful and easy platform to browse the Humanoids catalog on the iPad, full of many exciting features and exclusive deals.”

HUMANOIDS: Launched under the French name of Les Humanoïdes Associés in Paris in December, 1974, the company published the magazine Métal Hurlant. The title’s numerous foreign editions (including the American, Heavy Metal) revolutionized the world of comics and pop culture forever.

Humanoids has since become one of the world’s most successful international graphic novel publishers, as well as the only European one to have successfully established itself in the US and UK markets. The company - which relocated its French headquarters to Los Angeles, California last year - has also just opened a branch in Tokyo, Japan, where its flagship title, The Incal (by Alexandro Jodorowsky and Mœbius), has topped the bestselling charts of the non-Japanese comics for the past three years. In addition to its various publishing activities, numerous Humanoids titles - out of its vast catalog of intellectual properties - are currently being adapted for the big screen.
