Fans of Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s latest comic creation, “Showman Killer“, can rejoice. Titan Comics has announced that they have a second volume of the graphic novel series on the way. Slated to hit shelves in May of next year, “Showman Killer: The Golden Child” will continue the journey that began with “Showman Killer: Heartless Hero“.
Probably best known for wonderfully insane cinematic masterpieces such as Holy Mountain, El Topo, and Santa Sangre, Jodorowsky still dabbles in film occasionally (2013’s The Dance of Reality is his latest). Comics have been his passion for the last few decades, however, with the filmmaker creating some astonishing graphic novels over the years with the help of various other talents. “The Incal“, which Nicolas Winding Refn might adapt for film, stands out in particular.
I have not yet picked up “Showman Killer“, but I’ll definitely be doing so in the coming months. In the meantime, we can all check out the press release and wonderful artwork below…
TITAN COMICS TO PUBLISH SECOND IN THE SHOWMAN KILLER SERIES, THE GOLDEN CHILD

“A prophet of creativity…one of the most inspiring artists of our time.” – Kanye West on Alejandro Jodorowsky
In a moment of madness, the heartless Showman Killer has found himself responsible for a helpless infant, forced upon him by the mysterious Ibis. The Showman Killer must unravel the mystery of the forces at work in the cosmos, and find out exactly why this child is so important.
“The Golden Child is the second in the Showman Killer series and takes us even deeper into the mind of a man created with no ethics, no moral code or boundaries,” says Titan Comics editor, Lizzie Kaye. “Jodorowsky’s writing paired with Fructas’ art makes this graphic novel a real treat for readers.”
Showman Killer: The Golden Child will be available in stores and on digital devices from May 18, 2016 and is available to order from JANUARY PREVIEWS (order code: JAN161697)
