Close on the heels of their January 2017 announcements (see "New Year With Humanoids"), Humanoids has announced two new books for February release.

Up first is Pierre Wazem and Aubin's Snow Day, a black and white, 112-page paperback, English language edition of the original Sur La Neige published by Les Humanoides Associes in 2004 and again in 2014.  From the author behind Koma and the artist of Blake & Mortimer, Snow Day is an intriguing, contemporary take on the American Western genre - a new, lone sheriff finds himself at odds and an outsider with the townspeople in a snowy, isolated town.  Snow Day retails for $14.95.

Next is a slightly oversized, hardcover edition of Whispers in the Walls. This 8.5 x 11.1 color edition by David Munoz, Tirso, and Javi Montes is the 184-page collection of materials originally published by Les Humanoides Associes in separate tomes in 2007 and eventually translated into English by Humanoids in four-issue serial form in 2010 and a softcover trade in 2012.  Set in post-World War II Czechoslovakia, a young orphan named Sarah learns the brutal secrets of an ancient, children's infirmary.  Whispers in the Walls retails for $29.95.
