Summary

A graphic novel mini series from 1990, based on Fritz Lang's suspense thriller, "M"

M Summary

M by Jon J. Muth

Behind every great suspense thriller 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 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.

About Jon J. Muth

Fritz Lang was an Austrian-American film director, screenwriter and film producer. Working first in Berlin during the silent-film era of the 1920s and later in Hollywood, Lang explored the darker side of human nature through his cinema. Thea Von Harbou was married to director Fritz Lang and wrote the screenplay for M as well as his most celebrated film Metropolis. In 1932, a year before Adolf Hitler came to power, she joined the Nazi Party, which presumably led to her divorce from Lang, who left Germany in 1934 for Paris. Harbou died in Berlin in 1954.
