Humanoids CEO and Publisher, Fabrice Giger says:
John Cassaday is one of the seminal artists of the comic book industry. John co-created I Am Legion for Humanoids in 2004 and became part of the Humanoids family. From now on, he will play a major role in Humanoids’ original content development that will have the industry talking.

This is a pretty big move and it heralds some exciting times for Humanoids on the horizon. I’m excited to see what Cassaday will bring to the table.
