Humanoids Releases New List of Life Drawn Titles
Humanoids, the noted French-owned, L.A.-based graphic novel publisher, is releasing a new round of graphic memoir and biography from its newly launched Life Drawn imprint, in advance of the San Diego Comic-Con International, which opens next week.
Humanoids will be showcasing a second round of titles at San Diego that will be published in the fall.
The new list of titles includes Marilyn’s Monsters by Tony Redolfi, an hallucinatory meditation on Monroe’s life, Kabul Disco Book 2 by Nicolas Wild, the second volume of the humorous travelogue, My New York Marathon by Sebastien Samson, the story of an aging teacher who decides to take on the great race, Hedy Lamarr: An Incredible Life, a graphic biography of a great movie star who, unbeknown to most of her fans, was also a great scientist, and Vietnamese Memories Book 2: Little Saigon by Clement Baloup, the second volume of Baloup’s account of Vietnamese immigrants settling in new communities in the U.S.
Humanoids, best known for publishing classic works of graphic science fiction by such artists as Moebius and Alejandro Jodorowsky, launched the Life Drawn imprint earlier this year with three titles. The imprint will focus on literary graphic memoir and biography.
Humanoids CEO and publisher, Fabrice Giger said "this fall’s publishing slate of Life Drawn graphic novels continues Humanoids’ commitment to celebrating diverse voices and telling deeply personal stories. We’ve been heartened by the incredible response to the inaugural Life Drawn titles, Including Mariko Tamaki’s acclaimed adaptation of Carole Maurel’s Luisa: Now and Then, with readers, librarians, booksellers, comic shop owners, critics, and bloggers. And we’ve only just begun.”
