Titan Comics has exciting news to announce! The publishing rights to one of the most famous comics in France is coming to English-speaking countries this fall. The hit series, Mutafukaz from Ankama passes the torch to Titan Comics. Mutafukaz originates from the creative mind of graphic artist and illustrator, Run. After four volumes, the series has already sold over 100,000 copies in France. With that, a short movie inspired from the brand was nominated at the Sundance festival in 2003. A full-length movie from Studio 4C is currently in production.
Publishing Director, Chris Teather shared his excitement by saying,
Titan are extremely excited and delighted to be releasing this unique piece of work into the English speaking market.
With all that hype, you must be wondering what the story is all about. Well, Mutafukaz tells the story of Angelino, one of the thousand deadbeats living in Dark Meat City. However, after an unremarkable scooter accident, caused by a beautiful, mysterious stranger, Angelino's life is transformed. Suddenly, he begins to witness monstrous entities prowling all over the city. The question is: is Angelino losing his mind, or is it all true? The concept sounds entertaining. I enjoy things that center around an overall question of "is this character crazy or are these things really happening?"
Looking at the cover, I get an anime-manga type feel from the character, but an edgy graffiti rough feel from the surrounding area and title font. It should be an interesting title to look out for. Mutafukaz is set to release fall of 2015.
