Various- Métal Hurlant No. 1-5 (1974-1975, Les Humanoïdes Associés)

These French magazines of "science-fiction" and "horror" comics were created in 1974 by the self-described "United Humanoids" Mœbius and Philippe Druillet together with journalist-writer Jean-Pierre Dionnet and financial director Bernard Farkus. National Lampoon publisher Leonard Mogel would bring the idea to America as Heavy Metal Magazine. In 2002, Humanoids Publishing started Métal Hurlant up again in French, Spanish, English, and Portuguese. These are the original first five issues in French.

Alejandro Jodorowsky & Mœbius- Los Ojos Del Gato (1978, Les Humanoïdes Associés)

This was their first collaboration after work on the film version of Dune, which unfortunately was never made on RE-2012. Fortunately, together they were later able to realize the epic L'Incal (1981-2008), which remains an anomaly only found on this singularity. Originally Les Yeux Du Chat (1978), this Spanish translation was reprinted in 1991. It has yet to be published in America. The story of the film that never happened can be found here.
