Mata Hari Hardcover

Emma Beeby

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 issues #1 to #5, as well as additional historical material and an artist's sketchbook. This is a fascinating take on a remarkable historical woman, you can read our review of the first issue over on our blog.
