Bilal’s Beast Given Props
By Brian Jacks
Humanoids Publishing has announced that Enki Bilal’s The Dormant Beast graphic novel was given the honorable Star review in a December issue of Publisher’s Weekly.
“It’s been one of my highlights at Humanoids to be given the responsibility of publishing Bilal’s work in English”, states Humanoids Editor, Paul Benjamin. “Artist Enki Bilal is as close as you can get to a Comics God in Europe and it’s great to see him get a bit of critical acclaim from such a respected publication.”
Enki Bilal is currently involved in post-production on >The Woman Trap, a feature film adaptation of Bilal’s Nikopol Trilogy comic book saga. This
will be Mr. Bilal’s directorial debut.
The Dormant Beast is a haunting sci-fi tale of Nike, a man gifted with perfect recall, coming to terms with his painful past in an oppressed society obsessed with obscuring the memories of yesterday.
