    Description

    Jon J. Muth M Graphic Novel page 45 Original Art (Eclipse, 1990). Muth, a comics innovator, who was among the first cartoonists to use illustrative contemporary painted artwork for comics storytelling, adapted Fritz Lang's classic film of German expressionism into an acclaimed graphic novel. In the movie M, Peter Lorre plays a child murderer so despised he is even pursued by criminals. Charles Kochman, an Abrams Publishing editor who is about to bring the work back into print this year has said, "Jon took the story of the Fritz Lang film and pushed it to a whole new level." To create these haunting images Muth used his own photography of friends and family, as well as his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, to recreate the film's story. He then used different illustrating techniques such as drawing in silverpoint and graphite to give the art its distinctive look." This haunting page has an image area of 13" x 19", and the art is in Excellent condition.
