The Fourth Power
Story & Art by Juan Gimenez

The odyssey of Exether Mega, a young military pilot caught up in an interplanetary conflict between humans — under the banner of the Planetary United States — and the Krommiums. After narrowly escaping an attack by an enemy patrol, Mega begins a perilous journey across enemy lines. Through a series of encounters —with both friends and foes — Mega discovers she's at the center of a complex, secret experiment to create the ultimate weapon of war. As further clues to her role, identity, and destiny are revealed to her, the powers that be ramp up their efforts to capture her. A spectacular and riveting space opera by the creator of Leo Roa and the illustrator of The Metabarons saga.

Quick Facts about The Fourth Power:
• Renowned Argentinian artist, Juan Gimenez, known for The Metabarons and his work in Heavy Metal magazine, so popular it spurred an art book, Overload.
• Designed the "Harry Canyon" segment in the cult-classic Heavy Metal film.
• Known for his extreme attention to technical and historical details in his works.
• The complete series in one book, only the first 2 volumes (of 4) have released in English.

CONTEST: "Paint" By The Numbers

Thursday, December 1, 2016


Who doesn't love "paint by number"? And then there is that adult coloring book phenomenon. Clearly the world just wants to color, and who are we to deny you the opportunity to color classic Ligne Claire work like what you would find from the creator of Tintin and the artist of the biography of the creator of Tintin (that's Hergé (Tintin) and Stanislas (Adventures of Hergé, By the Numbers) on Hergé if you got lost there).  

So, in celebration of the release of By the Numbers, we give you these panels to show off your "paint" skills.  Are you a colorist and want to show off your chops?  Go for it!  Do you want to print these out and use crayons to color it old-school?  Just do it!  Show us how you see the colors in the world of By The Numbers.

And if you're feeling especially creative, the bubbles have been left empty so that you can add in your own dialogue - or leave them blank, because sometimes silence speaks volumes.  

Coloring is a stress-reliever and just fun to do, but if you're feeling competitive, why not enter your coloring into a competition. Winners (we're terrible at picking just one) will receive a copy of By The Numbers. Contest is open to the US and UK and ends December 31st, 2016. Enter by using #paintbythenumbers on social media (remember to make it public!) or e-mail your work to contest@humanoids.com.

You can use any (and all!) of the panels below:


Bonus...  who are these familiar characters?!


Have fun!
