Have you heard of Hedy Lamarr?
Maybe you've seen her in the classic film "Samson and Delilah." Whether you've seen her before or not there is no denying one thing, she was stunning. Commonly known as "The Most Beautiful Woman in the World" she soared to fame on the silver screen in the 40s and 50s.
But Hedy Lamarr wasn't just a pretty face, she was also a genius.
As an amateur inventor, she helped Howard Hughes increase the speed of his planes and tinkered with her own creations. One of her creations was frequency hopping. This tech helped the U.S. win the war as well as becoming the basis for modern technology (you know, little things like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth).
The gorgeous graphic novel biography of the iconic star is now out from Humanoids. Still need convincing? Check out the reviews below!
"...a fast-paced, fun biography.”― THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"...the gorgeous comic from Humanoids is a celebration of the life and work of Lamarr." ― NERDIST
“A fascinating tale ... Thoroughly recommended.”―TRIPWIRE
Marilyn's Monsters by Tommy Redolfi
“A dark, beautiful fairy tale.”
― THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Harrowing…. Evocative….While staying true to the real-life tale of Norma Jeane’s transformation to Monroe, this fantasy creates a rich imaginary world that pays homage to the struggles of the late actress.”
― PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"On the outside, you wouldn't think of Marilyn Monroe's life as a horror movie. Redolfi makes a very convincing argument for why you should."
“You may never look at a photo of Marilyn Monroe the same way again.”― SYFY
"Transcendent, hypnotic, and emotionally devastating."
― FANBASE PRESS
“An impressive and disturbing look at a world renowned sex symbol. There's an unsettling quality to Redolfi's artwork that fills you with paranoia, making you question every character's motives. This is a book that will stay with you for some time. At the bare minimum, it will make you think twice before hanging up that Marilyn Monroe poster you bought at Target.”
― HORROR TALK
“Immersive, unsettling and ultimately tragic.”
― IMPULSE GAMER
