A SNEAK PEEK at Humanoids’ new illustrated biography…
Few artists have had as eclectic a career as creative genius Alejandro Jodorowsky — and Humanoids’ major illustrated biography of the master by Vincent Berniere is out this week.
The bio looks at the 91-year-old’s life in the theater, film, music, poetry and, of course, comics.
That’s a pat description, I know, given Jodorowsky’s broad range of accomplishments, so here’s the official description itself:
“A definitive look at the life of legendary filmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky and his many wild creative ventures throughout his 90 years on earth. A journey through Jodo’s personal life, his life in the theater, his rebirth as a ’70s cinematic cult figure and and, of course, tales of his work on Dune, his unfinished cinematic masterpiece. No biography would be complete without an in-depth look into his life the world of comics, his collaborations with Mœbius, his passion for poetry, Tarot, Esoterism, spirituality, Mythical Cabarets, and the overall Jodo philosophy.”

The Seven Lives of Alejandro Jodorowsky is a 208-page hardcover listed for $39.99. It’s available at comics shops and other booksellers this week.
