**Due to scheduling issues The Humans West Coast Tour has been cancelled. Tom and Keenan express their apologies, they were really looking forward to kicking it in Portland.**
Keenan Marshall Keller and Tom Neely appears at Floating World Comics on Friday November 13th, 2015 from 6-8pm for THE HUMANS #9 release party and exhibit!
Bakersfield, California, 1970: The Humans (who happen to be apes) are the baddest biker gang of all. They deal out beatings, cook drugs, party endlessly, and struggle to keep their turf and status amongst the numerous outlaws, rival gangs, and bonafide killers — all of whom are trying to take their spot at the top of the heap. And then a member of the gang long thought dead returns… haunted by memories of hell on earth. Johnny is back in the fold in THE HUMANS, VOLUME 1 from Image Comics in March — but is his head where it needs to be to ride with The Humans again?
Writer Keenan Marshall Keller (Galactic Breakdown) and artist Tom Neely (Henry and Glenn Forever) team up on a high-octane, no-holds-barred, ape-biker-gang chopper ride into ‘70s exploitation genre bliss as Bobby, Johnny, and all the Humans fly down the road to oblivion on a ride filled with chains, sex, leather, denim, hair, blood, bananas, and chrome.
“I just love me some biker flicks and exploitation/genre in all forms,” said Keller in an interview with Comicosity. “It wasn’t like I was trying to do an ape project and settled on them being bikers… The Humans were bikers from the start. It’s my love affair with the fringe, with outlaws and no-good-doer’s and made me focus on biker culture.”
Neely, whose art captures the energy and abandon of The Humans’ life on the road, has relished the chance to draw full-time. “I get up and draw monkeys and motorcycles all day and it’s the best,” he said. “It’s also really great collaborating with another artist – Kristina Collantes is doing the coloring and I love to see how she transforms my pages. I love my black and white drawings for this book, but they really don’t come to life to feel like a real comic book until Kristina’s colors complete the picture.”
Join our crew! Ride with The HUMANS today!!!
