Overview

"Métal Hurlant" magazine was created in Paris in 1974 by Moebius, Druillet and Dionnet, the founding fathers of Les Humanoïdes Associés. This movement soon revolutionized the medium and inspired countless writers, artists and filmmakers the world over. Versions in various languages flourished everywhere, including in the States with "Heavy Metal." The French version was eventually shut down in 1987. But in 2002, Humanoids relaunched a limited publication of a 13-issue anthology, with one main goal: establishing a creative bridge between the US and Europe.
Includes stories written and illustrated by comic book stars Geoff Johns, Kurt Busiek, Guy Davis, and Jerome Opena, among many others.

Meet the Author

Geoff Johns is DC Comics’ Chief Creative Officer and an award-winning writer responsible for such crossover epics as “Green Lantern, Blackest Night” and “Infinite Crisis,” and was a key architect behind DC’s The New 52 relaunch. He has written TV episodes of “Smallville,” “Green Arrow” and “Flash” and is Executive Producer on the forthcoming “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” movie.

Fred Beltran is active in several creative fields. He works as a comics artist, but also as a prolific musician. Beltran saw his first comic album published in 1988. In the early 1990s, he contributed to the collective album “Eros Gone Wild” at Humanoids and pursued a subsequent career in architecture, illustration and theatre stage design. Since 1994, Beltran has mostly used the computer on all his comics work, including the coloring of the series “The Technopriests.” Also in 1994, the first album of his new band Les Snails is released. Beltran cooperated with the Japanese publishing house Kodansha between 1995 and 1997, producing the series “Nina.” In 1998, he began a new series with Jodorowsky, called “Megalex,” (Humanoids) and in which he used both hand-drawn and computer-generated illustrations.
