HUMANOIDS Announces THE TIPPING POINT

The first truly international graphic novel, featuring 13 creators
from 3 continents and simultaneously published in 4 countries.

This highly original anthology allows some of the world’s greatest sequential artists to explore the key moment when a clear-cut split occurs, a mutation, a personal revolt or a large-scale revolution that tips us from one world into another, from one life to an entirely new one: The Tipping Point.

From slice-of-life tales and science-fiction adventures, to amusing asides and fantastical fables, witness these major changes and evolution through the eyes of 13 visionaries from the worlds of manga, bande dessinée, and comics. Each of them has written and drawn an original story, and taken a personal approach to the theme of “the tipping point.” The anthology is by turns, humorous, moving, perplexing, horrifying, pensive, uplifting, and hopeful.

The contributors are some of the most cutting-edge and influential creators from the USA, UK, Japan, and France:

Atsushi Kaneko 

Keiichi Koike

Emmanuel Lepage

The book also features a brand new cover by legendary European artist, Enki Bilal (The Nikopol Trilogy).

Humanoids’ publisher, Fabrice Giger notes, “Humanoids, since its very inception 40 years ago, has always had a leitmotif of building bridges between American comic books, Japanese manga, and European bande dessinée to help them inspire each other—or better yet, to cross-pollinate. The Tipping Point does just that, and features some of the medium’s best creators working today. It’s a very unique and special book that will land—like a shimmering UFO invasion—simultaneously in different languages around the planet, unifying global fans of the sequential art form.”

The Tipping Point will be released in two separate editions:

A Hardcover Trade Edition (8.3in x 11in/275mm x 210mm, 132pp), MSRP/RRP $29.95/£20.99.

An Ultra-Deluxe Edition (8.3in x 11in/275mm x 210mm, 132pp), MSRP/RRP $499/£349. This edition comes in a slipcase, is printed on luxurious 150gsm paper, includes 14 individually signed bookplates, and is limited and numbered to just 100 copies. A unique opportunity to own a ground-breaking piece of comics art.

Both English-language editions will be released in the US and the UK in January 2016. French and Japanese editions to be released in their respective territories.
