The Metabaron Vol.1

The Techno-Admiral & The Anti-Baron - Oversized Deluxe

Illustrated by Valentin Sécher

The Metabaron character was created by legendary artist Moebius and writer Alejandro Jodorowsky in The Incal, and was later spun-off into his own international bestselling series, The Metabarons, with art by Juan Gimenez. The new series The Metabaron is a collaboration between Alejandro Jodorowsky and Jerry Frissen, exhibiting the work of talented artists including Valentin Secher and Niko Henrichon. Writer/director/ producer David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) called The Metabarons: “The greatest work of graphic fiction ever produced,” and it has sold millions of copies globally.

Alejandro Jodorowsky (also known as Alexandro Jodorowsky) is a Chilean film and theatre director, screenwriter, playwright, actor, comic book writer, author, poet, mime, musician, and spiritual guru. He is best known for his avant-garde, cult films, such as "El Topo," a midnight movie favorite.

Jerry Frissen (born Thierry Frissen in Belgium) is an American comic book writer and toy & graphic designer. He is the senior graphic designer at Humanoids as well as the author of several best-selling graphic novels, including the anthology comic book series "Lucha Libre" ("Unfabulous Five," "The Tikitis"), "The Zombies That Ate The World" ("The Z Word") and the new cycle of the internationally acclaimed series "The Metabarons," co-written with Alejandro Jodorowsky and illustrated by Valentin Sécher, Niko Henrichon and Esad Ribic, under the title "The Metabaron." In addition to his work on "The Metabaron," Jerry Frissen is also the author of the forthcoming sci-fi thriller "Exo" (March 2018).

At only 29, Valentin has already been published by Titan Comics (Khaal) and Humanoids (The Metabaron Book 1 & 3). A rising star in the European comics scene, he took up the challenge of following in the footsteps of Juan Gimenez, creating his own version of Jodorowsky's universes: cinematic landscapes and beautiful, realistic fight scenes.

"...it tosses Greek mythology, Frank Herbert’s Dune, and a bit of the old ultraviolence into a blender and presses frappé. ...stunningly illustrated and utterly bananas." - Publishers Weekly "This strong science fiction story will not only appeal to readers familiar with the Metabaron catalog and the strong output of Humanoids in the field, but should also be on the radar for audiences weaned on Image Comics' recent presence in the genre over the past few years with titles such as Saga, Prophet, and much more." - icv2
