Celebrate the 60th Anniversary of The Twilight Zone with this new Biographical Graphic Novel
"A perceptive take, which celebrates and illuminates one of early television’s true artists."
– PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"Twilight Man is a respectful but clear-eyed tribute to one of the most important and influential dramatists of the 20th century."
– ALAN BRENNERT, NEBULA AWARD WINNER
"Having experienced "The Twilight Zone" and "Playhouse 90" first hand, I fancied myself as pretty clued in to the Rod Serling legacy, but I admit I learned a lot from Koren Shadmi's unexpectedly poignant and cleverly observed graphic novel treatment of Serling's life and career. It's a unique take on the lasting work of a complicated man who found his greatest success when coding the messages of his socially conscious narratives into "a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination"
– JOE DANTE
“Poignant, intensely researched and crisply illustrated.”
“Koren Shadmi expertly takes us into a dimension of incredible imagination. The life of Rod Serling is a great American story of determination and invention - and the perfect stuff of a graphic novel.”
– DAVID KUSHNER, AUTHOR OF MASTERS OF DOOM

– AiPT COMICS
"History meets art! A riveting tale about the man who created organized crime—Lang’s story brings Meyer’s legacy to life!"
– MEYER LANSKY II

Hedy Lamarr: An Incredible Life
“Translated from the original French, the gorgeous comic from Humanoids is a celebration of the life and work of Lamarr, and it’s clear that the creators are huge admirers of the trailblazing inventor, devoting their story to her role in taking down the Nazi regime and inventing what would go on to make cell phones and the Internet possible.” ― NERDIST
“Of all the complex lives movie stars have lived, arguably none have been more complex, contradictory and fascinating than that of Hedy Lamarr, the so-called “most beautiful woman in the world” was was simultaneously the star of such films as Samson and Delilah and Boom Town and also the co-creator of work that would later be used in the creation of Bluetooth technology. A new graphic novel from Humanoids, Hedy Lamarr: An Incredible Life, tells the actor’s story anew, and in the process, brings her astonishing accomplishments to life once again…. [as] a fast-paced, fun biography.”
