After Secret Wars, Esad Ribić Paints The New Metabarons Comic For Humanoids

Metabaron-Esad RibicI understand that the Paris branch of Humanoids will be at Paris Comic Con this weekend with a big announcement.

It's all very hush hush, but word is that it will be Esad Ribić and Mukesh Singh working on Metabaron the new comic in the Metabarons series.

This will be Esad's first confirmed work to follow up the yet-to-be-concluded million-selling Secret Wars comic at Marvel. He will complete the last four issues of the new 16-part Metabaron comic book series providing covers and interior art.

This sequel to The Metabarons starts in October and is written by Jerry Frissen, based on a story by Alexandro Jodorowsk.

The first four issues are being drawn by young French artist, Valentin Sécher, followed by The Pride of Bagdad's, Niko Henrichon, and then Indian comic book superstar, Mukesh Singh. Esad will follow them with his final arc.

The Metabaron character was created byJean Giraud, aka Mœbiu, and Alexandro Jodorowsky in The Incal, and later had his own international bestselling spin-off series, The Metabarons, with art by Juan Gimenez (Leo Roa).
