Arriving in March from Humanoids is the latest installment in the ongoing and highly successful Metabarons series, Metabarons Genesis: Castaka.
Now, Jodorowsky has teamed with Das Pastoras (Thor: God of Thunder) for an exploration of the Metabaron's origins and first ancestor Dayal de Castaka. Leader of a clan of lawless pirates, readers will find a far from noble beginning for the Metabarons.
The 112-page, color hardcover will be printed in Humanoids’ standard oversized, deluxe edition format. Retailing for $49.95, Metabarons Genesis: Castaka will be available for US audiences in March, and UK readers in May.
Initially emerging out of the vast universe Jodorowsky and Moebius created with The Incal, the original Metabarons ran for seventeen issues and has been collected entirely by Humanoids. 2010 saw Weapons of the Metabaron, an original hardcover graphic novel that detailed the character's rise to prominence and power. In 2012, Humanoids released a Metabarons Ultimate Colleciton, with an intro by Matt Fraction (see “’Metabarons Ultimate Collection’”).
