Description

189 pp. 26.5 cm. Black illustrated boards with like dustjacket. From front dustcover flap: "Behind every great suspense thirller lurks the shadow of M. In Fritz Lang's first sound film from 1931, Peter Lorre delivers a haunting performance as a serial killer - a whistling pedophile hunted by the police and brought to a trial by the forces of the Berlin underworld. "In 1990, a young painter, Jon J Muth, continued his rise in the comic book industry by adapting the story of M into a four-issue comic book miniseries. Muth's photorealistic illustrations paved the way for the acceptance of painted comics, influencing a generation of artists who followed him. "Long out of print, these four issues are collected together for the first time as a hardcover graphic novel. The book also includes an introduction by Adam Kempenaar of Filmspotting and a new afterword by Muth."
