BLACK METROPOLIS: THE ROAD TO INFINITUM. A CONVERSATION WITH GRAPHIC NOVELIST, TIM FIELDER
The marketing for INFINITUM; An Afrofuturist Tale’, is really starting to ramp up. Thusly, as the release of INFINITUM gets closer to publication by HarperCollins Amistad on January 19th, 2021, we were grateful that CXC allowed my career over the decades to be discussed. If you ever wanted to see how black cartooning intersects with Black Rock Music, Yoruba religious modalities, and Science Fiction, THIS IS IT!
The Metabaron’s Juan Giménez TRIBUTE BOOK!
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! Many years ago Jean Giraud (aka Moebius), and Alejandro Jodorowsky collaborated on an aborted DUNE movie. The story behind it ultimately produced the 2013 entertaining cautionary tale documentary, ‘Jodorowsky’s Dune”. But apparently the partnership would continue in the graphic novel series L’INCAL. One of the ground breaking characters created in the series was the ultimate warrior, METABARON. After the main L’INCAL story was told, Jodorowsky took it upon himself to continue the story of the Metabaron legacy. The artist chosen for that series was the great Juan Giménez, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Giménez’s art and mechanical style had a huge influence on my work over the decade.
I became aware that a book would be produced honoring Giménez’s life and work. Amazing artist, Miquel Montlló (of Starship Warship Jolly Roger fame) was gracious enough to put me in contact with comic historian, Emilio Gonzalo Mallo who was organizing the project. I was amazingly given the green light to produce an image and of course, The Metabaron came to mind.
It was my honor to be a part of the project which will be announced at a future date.
BACK TO IT!
