Exclusive Preview: Jodorowsky’s The Technopriests

On November 15 Humanoids will publish The Incal: Psychoverse by Mark Russell and Yanick Paquette, the shocking and explosive prequel to the legendary and best-selling Incal saga by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Mœbius. Also in November, Humanoids will be publishing some fantastic Incal-related titles from their backlist all written by Jodorowsky: The Incal: Deluxe Edition, Technopriests, and The Deluxe Megalex.

We’ve got an exclusive excerpt from Jordowsky’s Technopriests and get a look at The Incal: Psychoverse!

THE TECHNOPRIESTS

Hardcover Trade
November 1, 2022
Alejandro Jodorowsky, Zoran Janjetov & Fred Beltran

The cosmic adventures of a young boy on his path to ridding the galaxy of an insidious technological plague.

After the Greek tragedy of “The Metabarons,” Alexandro Jodorowsky comes back to his biblical roots with this quest reminiscent of Moses and set on a galactic scale. To top it off, the characters and the theme of virtual reality are tailor-made for artist Zoran Janjetov (“Before The Incal”), who finds in Jodorowsky his perfect match. Albino, hero of this space odyssey, remembers here his childhood, his apprenticeship, and the big and small battles he had to fight to fulfill his ambitions in a universe where technological advances are paradoxically matched only by the cruelty and the barbarism of the forces controlling it.

THE INCAL: PSYCHOVERSE

Humanoids Raises Funds for Ukraine with Makhno: Ukranian Freedom Fighter

Humanoids has announced that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their upcoming graphic novel Makhno: Ukranian Freedom Fighter will be donated to the Ukrainian nonprofit organization Razom, which supplies medical aid to Ukrainian fighters on the front lines. Makhno: Ukranian Freedom Fighter by Philippe Thirault and Roberto Zaghi is the true story of the infamous Ukrainian anarchist and revolutionary Nestor Makhno.

In early 20th century Ukraine, anarchist Nestor Makhno, the son of peasants, was among the most heroic and colorful figures of the Russian Revolution, encouraging his people to find and embrace social and economic self-determination. Makhno is the story of a military strategist who tirelessly defied both the Bolsheviks and the Germans to protect his homeland.

In support of the people of Ukraine, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated directly to Ukrainian relief efforts through the nonprofit organization Razom. “In the spirit of Nestor Ivanovich Makhno himself, a courageous freedom fighter who took more than once to the front lines of combat, Humanoids has chosen to donate to the organization working most directly with the freedom fighters of today,” said Humanoids Publisher Mark Waid.

Makhno: Ukranian Freedom Fighter is published through Humanoids’ Life Drawn imprint and out now.

A single mother becomes involved with a mysterious man who consumes moments of her life, leading her to question her choices, and whether they can-or should-be undone.

Friends thought long lost return, and new opportunities suddenly present themselves out of nowhere. Soon, however, she begins experiencing horrific encounters with ghostly beings eventually revealed to be the echoes of moments she has somehow no longer lived. Terrified at the realization that her past is being rewritten and that Heath is not who-or even what-he seems to be, Chloe must find a way to take back the seconds, minutes, and hours stolen by the alien chronophage masquerading as her new lover. But before she can act, Heath has one last surprise for her: a chance to undo the brief sexual encounter that turned her into a single mother sixteen years ago.

Featuring a foreword from Tom King.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Until My Knuckles Bleed #1

Wednesdays (and Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Baloney & Friends: Dream Big! (First Second) – The series is goofy fun that kids will love and parents can enjoy.

Batman: Knight #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue was interesting but not exciting. This though has us interested in seeing what’s next. Bruce has moved on from Gotham hanging out in Paris where he meets a burglar who shows him a thing or two.

Chronophage (Humanoids) – A single mother’s past is being rewritten and the mysterious man she met isn’t who he says he is.

Fictionauts #1 (Red 5 Comics) – A team must preserve the balance between reality and imagination which feels like that’s just open to a lot of potential fun.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Saturday Morning Adventures #1 (IDW Publishing) – We have fond memories of watching G.I. Joe growing up and we’ll admit nostalgia has us excited to check out this series that picks up on the original cartoon.

Iron Fist #1 (Marvel) – New Iron Fist? We’re listening…

Lion & Eagle #1 (AfterShock) – Garth Ennis and P.J. Holden doing a war comic. Nuff said.

Maniac of New York: The Bronx is Burning #3 (AfterShock) – The series has been an amazing take on the slasher film genre grounding it in what it’d be like if it happened in our reality.

Mother Russia Winter Special (Comics Experience) – We remember this series from WAY back when and we’re always excited to see something new that takes war comics and delivers a zombie mix. Add in this is a silent issue and we’re excited to check it out.

The Princess Who Saved Her Friends (BOOM! Studios) – This graphic novel for kids is fantastic. As backers of the Kickstarter, we’ve had it for a while and that means a lot of repeat reads.

Putin’s Russia: The Rise of a Dictator (Drawn & Quarterly) – This one should be interesting to read to see how even handed it is and considering current news.

Quad #1 (Behemoth) – A solar storm has destroyed all technology and four generations later a mechnaic takes a job that’s a bit odd. It’s never really simple.

Shadowman #6 (Valiant) – The series has been consistently solid and the “Deadside War” feels like it’s going to be a major storyline for the Valiant Universe.

Until My Knuckles Bleed #1 (Behemoth) – We’re fans of Victor Santos and a series about a retired hero now a bouncer is an intriguing debut.

Humanoids To Publish All New Graphic Novels in The Incal Universe

The Incal by legendary writer Alejandro Jodorowsky and internationally acclaimed artist Mœbius was a shot across the bow of graphic storytelling, an epic explosion of staggering art, mind-blowing worldbuilding, and ambitious plotting that combined to make one of the most influential comics of all time. Now, 42 years after its initial publication—and with a major movie adaptation in the works from award-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi—Humanoids will publish all-new original graphic novels in The Incal Universe, building on the original, seminal graphic novel. Next May Humanoids will publish the Free Comic Book Day: The Incal Universe Special, which previews three new titles: Psychoverse by Mark Russell and Yanick Paquette; Dying Star by Dan Watters and Jon Davis-Hunt; and Kill Wolfhead by Brandon Thomas and Pete Woods.

The Incal is widely regarded as one of the great achievements of the comics medium, and is the highest-selling science fiction graphic novel of all time.

In The Incal, John Difool, a low-class detective in a degenerate, dystopian world, finds his life turned upside down when he discovers an ancient, mystical artifact called “the Incal.” Difool’s adventures will bring him into conflict with the galaxy’s greatest warrior, the Metabaron, and will pit him against the awesome powers of the Technopope. These encounters and many more make up a tale of comic and cosmic proportions that has Difool fighting for not only his very survival, but also the survival of the entire universe.

Humanoids will be releasing more details about The Incal Universe graphic novels in the months ahead.
