Dancer. Courtesan. Spy. Executed by a French firing squad in 1917. One hundred years on from her death- questions are still raised about her conviction. Now- the story of the woman who claimed she was born a princess and died a figure of public hatred is told by break-out talent writer Emma Beeby (Judge Dredd)- artist Ariela Kristantina (Insexts)- and colorist Pat Masioni drawing on biographies and released MI5 files. We meet Mata Hari in prison at the end of her life as she writes her memoir-part romantic tale of a Javanese princess- and part real-life saga of a disgraced wife and mother. As she sits trial for treason and espionage- we hear another tale- of a flamboyant Dutch woman who became 'the most dangerous spy France has ever captured'-a double agent who whored herself for secrets- lived a life of scandal- and loved only money. Leading us to ask . . . who was the real Mata Hari? This hardcover collects Mata Hari #1-#5- as well as additional historical material and an artist's sketchbook. 'Mata Hari is a fascinating use of a medium to explore its titles perplexing historical figure.' -You Don't Read Comics
