Who is Fabrice Giger?

Fabrice A Giger is a book publisher and film & TV producer. The son of Swiss painter José Giger, he is well known for publishing hundreds of comic books / graphic novels from such acclaimed authors as Alexandro Jodorowsky, Mœbius, Enki Bilal and John Cassaday.

In 1988, at the age of 23, convinced that comic book artists and writers have an artistic and commercial potential far beyond the comic book industry, he bought the venerable French publishing house Les Humanoïdes Associés as well as its catalog and brands, such as Métal Hurlant. In less than two decades, he turned it into a multimedia group, involved not only in comic book publishing, but also in CGI animation, digital effects, internet content and software development.

In 1995, he co-founded the CGI animation studio, Sparx*, with branches in France and in Vietnam, which went on to produce many critically acclaimed and awarded shows, such as Rolie Polie Olie for which Giger won an Emmy Award in 2000 as executive producer.

In 1998, in Los Angeles, he founded Humanoids, the American counterpart of Les Humanoïdes Associés.

In the years 1999-2000, he partnered with directors Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and Renny Harlin to launch a website featuring original content based on Humanoids and Les Humanoïdes Associés titles. The respective catalogs have been a constant source of inspiration for filmmakers and the movie industry in general since the 1970s, and thus Giger sought to create a digital content platform to combine the talents from these different mediums. Despite producing hours of material, the site never took off due to the unfortunate timing of the bursting of the Internet bubble.
