Metal Hurlant - Selected Works

Illustrated by Ryan Sook and Mark Vigouroux
Published by Humanoids, Inc.
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

A collection of Sci-Fi masterpieces featuring stories by acclaimed creators Geoff Johns and Kurt Busiek.

"Métal Hurlant" magazine was created in Paris in 1974 by Moebius, Druillet and Dionnet, the founding fathers of Les Humanoïdes Associés. This movement soon revolutionized the medium and inspired countless writers, artists and filmmakers the world over. Versions in various languages flourished everywhere, including in the States with "Heavy Metal." The French version was eventually shut down in 1987. But in 2002, Humanoids relaunched a limited publication of a 13-issue anthology, with one main goal: establishing a creative bridge between the US and Europe.

Includes stories written and illustrated by comic book stars Geoff Johns, Kurt Busiek, Guy Davis, and Jerome Opena, among many others.

Geoff Johns is DC Comics' Chief Creative Officer and an award-winning writer responsible for such crossover epics as Green Lantern, Blackest Night and Infinite Crisis, and was a key architect behind DC's The New 52 relaunch. He has written TV episodes of Smallville, Green Arrow, and Flash and is Executive Producer on Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Kurt Busiek has been writing comics professionally since three days before he graduated from college in 1982, when he sold a "Tales of the Green Lantern Corps" backup story that appeared in "Green Lantern #162." Since then, he's worked on just about everything from "Action Comics" to "Zot!," including runs on "Avengers," "Superman," "Conan" and others, and has co-created "Thunderbolts," "The Autumnlands," "Arrowsmith" and more. He's best known for his work on the multiple-award-winning "Marvels" and "Astro City."
