[Editors Note: For more on ‘Metal Hurlant’ and other Humanoids projects check our February interview with Humanoids Ian Sattler.]

Official Press Release

[Metal Hurlant #1]

Los Angeles ­ April 1st, 2002 ­ This July Humanoids Publishing proudly
reintroduces the comic book that influenced and inspired Heavy Metal
Magazine, and a generation of fans and comic professionals. Metal Hurlant is
the realization of Humanoids vision to bring together the best storytellers
from around the world to create a universal comic experience.

This bi-monthly anthology will feature stories that will become instant
classics, all produced with the same care and quality for which Humanoids is
known. Every issue of Metal Hurlant will be an event, and things get started
with a bang as Avengers writer, Kurt Busiek, teams with artist
extraordinaire, Gerald Parel on the new story, “Hunter’s Moon.” The cover
feature is the beginning of the serialized “Megalex” story by the
TechnoPriests team of Jodorowsky and Fred Beltran. Readers can expect
several surprises as well.

“Metal Hurlant is really a labor of love for us. We want to do everything
right and give the fans a comic that will really be something different,
something that lives up to the legacy this title has.” said Ian Sattler,
Marketing Manager for Humanoids. “Metal Hurlant is more than just a comic,
it’s a way of thinking. The stories push the creative limits; and out of the
stories in Metal Hurlant we are generating projects like the Pin-Up Girls
>From Around The World book from Fred Beltran, and the Miss Trade Paperback
from Marc Riou and Mark Vigouroux who drew a Jodorowsky story in the first
issue. Metal Hurlant is a graphic depiction of the Humanoids philosophy. I
can’t wait for people to see what we have going on.”

Metal Hurlant #1 is 48 pages (32 color / 16 black and white), comic book
size and retails for $3.95. Humanoids will support this issue with an
in-store poster, and ordering incentives for retailers. Humanoids plans to
simultaneously release Metal Hurlant #1 in several countries besides the
U.S. including France as part of a comprehensive and aggressive publishing
plan.
