Hm well, according to this, THE HUMANS, by Keenan Marshall Keller and Tom (The Blot, Henry and Glenn) Neely will be announced as an ongoing series by a major publisher at San Diego. BUT BEFORE THAT, they are offering their OWN #0 issue with pin-ups by Kristina Collantes, which you can buy at their web store. Based on the art this is actually about monkeys so it’s even BETTER THAN YOU COULD POSSIBLY IMAGINE.
As for who will publish the regular HUMANS title…hm. Neely worked for IDW but it seems more Image to me. What do you think?
Apart, they are nothing… deemed by society as outcasts, misfits, losers, no-good punks!
But together, they are THE HUMANS!
The HUMANS, is a high octane, no holds barred, ape-biker-gang chopper ride into ’70s exploitation genre bliss. Follow Bobby, Johnny and all The HUMANS as they fight and fly down the road to oblivion on a ride filled with chains, sex, leather, denim, hair, blood, bananas and chrome.
The HUMANS #0 introduces three members of The HUMANS gang: Marra, Mojo, and Karns, as they encounter members of a local rival gang, The SKABBS, trying to party on HUMANS turf! Chaotic violence ensues as the pages drip with 100% Ape-Biker Exploitation at its finest.
Plus a mind-melting full color acid-banana freak-out pin-up by the future series colorist Kristina Collantes!
Created by Keenan Marshall Keller (Galactic Breakdown, Drippy Bone Books) and Tom Neely (The Blot, Henry & Glenn Forever, Popeye), The HUMANS is their combined dream – an action packed genre comic overflowing with dynamic primal action and psychedelic energy!
on JULY 18th in Los Angeles, CA @ The Secret Headquarters & VACATION Vinyl, we will be having our dual store release party, featuring the art of The HUMANS and signing at SHQ and a special in-store performance at Vacation by the Zig Zags for the release of The Humans Soundtrack Volume 1: split 7″ by Zig Zags and Smelly Tongues.
