Abrams to Republish Comics Adaptation of M

Abrams to Republish Comics Adaptation of M - 3/20/2007 9:11:00 AM - Publishers Weekly: "Harry N. Abrams has acquired world rights to Jon J. Muth’s out-of-print adaptation of M, Fritz Lang’s classic film, and plans to republish the book in hardcover packaged with a DVD of the movie in Spring 2008. The book was acquired by Abrams senior editor Charles Kochman in a deal brokered by agent Allen Spiegel.

Muth is an acclaimed comics artist and children’s book illustrator. He is the author of the bestselling children’s picture books Zen Shorts and Three Questions (2005, 2002 both from Scholastic) and also illustrated Carolyn Kennedy’s national bestseller A Family of Poems (Hyperion) in 2005. His adaptation of Fritz Lang’s classic thriller was originally published in 1990 as a serial by Eclipse Comics and has never been collected into a single volume."
