Humanoids has announced it has named Mark Waid as the Publisher for the comic company.
“With his passion for publishing, respect for the medium’s past, attention to today’s political and cultural landscapes, and keen eye for spotting talent, Mark Waid is perfectly suited to lead the Humanoids publishing team as the new Publisher of Humanoids English-language efforts,” said Humanoids CEO Fabrice Giger in a press release from the publisher. “We are thrilled with the work that Mark has done and it was time to expand his responsibilities. It’s a significant passing of the baton.”
“Fabrice Giger founded Humanoids in Los Angeles in 1998 with the goal of introducing American readers to the European masterworks by creators like Jodorowsky, Mœbius, Gimenez, and Manara and these classics remain the foundation of Humanoids,” said Waid. “As we look to the future, Humanoids’ publishing slate will honor the legacy of those iconic books, while continuing to innovate and experiment with new publishing initiatives like Life Drawn, BIG and H1.”
As we move toward May, and the anniversary of The Incal from Jodorowsky and Moebius, Humanoids will have anniversary editions of the book available as well as collected edition of Barbarella by Jean-Claude Forest, Metal Hurlant, and more.
