At GlobalComix, we believe that anyone, no matter where they live in the world, should be able to easily access and enjoy comics created anywhere in the world. That’s why we’re excited to announce that Humanoids have made their comics catalog available to read on GlobalComix.

Humanoids has been a renowned name in the industry for more than 45 years, starting in the early 1970s under the name Les Humanoïdes Associés. It was a time of artistic revolution around the world, and the young team at Humanoids thought no different -- they were determined to push the limits of their art and take comics to an entirely new level.

“Innovation has always been at the heart of Humanoids, and finding partners, be they creators or distribution partners, who share that value and bring expertise in their respective field, is always the opportunity for exciting and disruptive possibilities. We are thrilled to partner with Chris and the team at GlobalComix to do just that, combining our rich catalog with their innovative approaches to making digital comics accessible to as many folks as possible,” said Alex Donoghue, COO U.S. Operations at Humanoids.

In 1975 the Humanoids team released their first comics magazine: Métal Hurlant, and it defined their cutting-edge approach to storytelling and art for decades to come. From their vast library of comics, to countless contributions to the world of pop culture at large, being particularly inspiring to creators in the film and TV space, Humanoids continues to leave an indelible mark on the entertainment industry.

“I am celebrating the milestone of bringing on the Humanoids catalog to GlobalComix,” says GlobalComix CEO Chris Carter. “On top of having a massive library that I’m thrilled our readers can now enjoy, Humanoids brings a legacy that is famous worldwide. They laid a crucial part of the foundation for modern comic storytelling and it makes me proud to present our growing library of modern comics in context with the pioneers. We have also had the pleasure of connecting with the whole Humanoids team and they have been absolutely wonderful.”

Much like the artistic revolution of the 1970s, we’re currently in a digital revolution within the comics space. Today the drive to make comics more accessible than ever before has taken a major leap forward.
