Hedy Lamarr: An Incredible Life

“Translated from the original French, the gorgeous comic from Humanoids is a celebration of the life and work of Lamarr, and it’s clear that the creators are huge admirers of the trailblazing inventor, devoting their story to her role in taking down the Nazi regime and inventing what would go on to make cell phones and the Internet possible.” ― NERDIST

“Of all the complex lives movie stars have lived, arguably none have been more complex, contradictory and fascinating than that of Hedy Lamarr, the so-called “most beautiful woman in the world” was was simultaneously the star of such films as Samson and Delilah and Boom Town and also the co-creator of work that would later be used in the creation of Bluetooth technology. A new graphic novel from Humanoids, Hedy Lamarr: An Incredible Life, tells the actor’s story anew, and in the process, brings her astonishing accomplishments to life once again…. [as] a fast-paced, fun biography.”         
   – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
