Founded as Les Humanoïdes Associés in the early 1970s in Paris by a group of creators, including the incomparable Jean “Mœbius” Giraud, Humanoids has published some of the most important comics — both across European and U.S. aesthetics — of the 20th century, including the acclaimed Métal Hurlant magazine, or seminal graphic novels such as The Incal or The Metabarons.

LibraryPass sat down [remotely] with Humanoids’ publisher, Mark Waid, to discuss their illustrious history, the nuances of transgressive comics, and highlights of some of their newer titles, including Swine, Space Bastards, and Young Mozart.

We’re honored to be able to offer Humanoids’ eclectic catalog of titles in Comics Plus, one of more than a hundred entry points into the diverse world of comics, graphic novels, and manga!
