About the Author

Born February 7th, 1929, in Tocopilla, Chile, of a Jewish Ukrainian immigrant family.

Jodorowsky was multi-talented from an early age, becoming skilled in puppetry and mime, in addition to writing, by his late teens. He traveled with a pantomime troupe in the 1950s, and within a couple years had made his way to Paris where he collaborated with the world-renowned mime Marcel Marceau.

In the 1960s, Jodorowsky ventured further into the world of theater, creating in Mexico, the Panic Movement. This innovative artistic movement allowed him to creatively participate in over a 100 theater productions. The 1970s saw him transition into the world of film where he quickly put a defining stamp on all his cinematic works. He directed several cult films, namely the infamous "El Topo," a Midnight movie favorite. Shortly thereafter, Jodorowsky became attached to direct the adaptation of the famous Frank Herbert sci-fi epic novel "Dune." At the preparation stage of the film, he brilliantly assembled a team of extremely diverse and gifted artists such as HR Giger, Chris Foss, Dan O'Bannon, and Moebius, all of who would later be hired as concept artists on Ridley Scott's "Alien." The development of "Dune" came to a halt due to financial problems, but Jodorowsky, having been exposed to such immense visual talent, propelled himself into writing graphic novels, pairing up with the artist Moebius. This collaboration resulted in what many consider to be one of the most creative European sci-fi graphic novel series of all time, "The Incal," which went on to sell millions of copies worldwide.

Since penning "The Incal," Jodorowsky continued writing top selling comic books with a wide variety of Europe's most talented artists, such as "The White Lama" (with Bess), "The Metabarons" (with Gimenez), "The Technopriests" (with Janjetov), and most recently "Bouncer" (with Boucq).

Along with nurturing his many other talents, Jodorowsky remains a unique storyteller whose published contributions have secured his status as one of the world's most prolific graphic novel writers.

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 Secher, 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).

Niko Henrichon is a Canadian comic artist most known for "Pride of Baghdad" (Vertigo) and "Noah" (Image), the former earning him an Eisner nomination for Best Penciller/Inker. He has also worked on "Fables", "New X-Men", "Sandman" and "Spiderman" in addition to his covers of "Fantasic Four" and "X-Men".

Reviews

"...it tosses Greek mythology, Frank Herbert's Dune, and a bit of the old ultraviolence into a blender and presses frappe. ...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
