This November sees the release of Showman Killer: Heartless Hero from legendary Chilean filmmaker, playwright and writer of The Incal and Holy Mountain, Alejandro Jodorowksy – and Titan Comics have just released a Sneak Peek trailer for the book.
Genetically modified by a mad scientist to be devoid of any emotion, Showman is a trained assassin, who only cares about money and ceates terror wherever he goes. But things change when on a fateful mission.
Showman Killer: Heartless Hero features the art of spectacular Nicolas Fructus, who has previously worked with Moebius, Philippe Druillet and François Boucq.
When not making amazing films, Jodorowksy, also a musician, writes comics, reads the tarot and gives free lectures on his theory of “psychomagic”.
