Post-Apocalyptic Android Ranx Gets Omnibus From Heavy Metal

by James Ferguson

Heavy Metal is collecting the entire Italian science fiction graphic novel series, Ranx into a new 208 page omnibus this June. The series from Stefano Tamburini and Tanino Liberatore, centers on a mechanical cyborg made of discarded photocopier parts. Joined by his bratty girlfriend Lubna, they explore a parody of our world filled with decadence, consumption, and selfishness. Ranx is the last knight in shining armor in a world of savages.

Heavy Metal CEO Matt Medney says:

Ranx is a staple of international science fiction history, we are thrilled to be the purveyor of it here in America.

Ranx: The Complete Collection includes the entire RanXerox collection that was serialized in Heavy Metal Magazine from 1983 through 1999, “Ranx in New York”, “Happy Birthday Lubna”, “Be Bop Lubna”, “I, Me, Mine Incorporated”, “Amen” and “I, Robot.” It also includes never-before-seen early strips, “Ranx The Thug” and “Modern Dance,” and a gallery with covers, pin-up art, and sketches.

Edition Editor Frank Forte added:

We couldn’t be more excited to bring RanXerox to American audiences.  Ranx collections have been out of print for quite some time and they’ve never been collected quite like this. This book is a must for all fans of Liberatore and RanXerox.

Ranx: The Complete Collection is set for release at your local comic shop on June 24th, 2020, at bookstores, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million on June 27th, 2020, and on Amazon on July 7th, 2020.
