HEDY LAMARR: The Original Catwoman Gets Her Comics Due

The bombshell’s graphic-novel bio is out this week…

Did you know that film star Hedy Lamarr helped inspire the original look of Catwoman? Perhaps you did.

Did you know that she was a scientific mastermind who helped lay the groundwork for what would eventually become wi-fi? Maybe, if you saw the documentary Bombshell

But did you know that the pioneering Lamarr — born Hedwig Eva Marie Kiesler — is now the subject of a graphic novel bio from Humanoids?

Check out this trailer:

The 176-page paperback — Hedy Lamarr: An Incredible Life, by William Roy and Sylvain Dorange — is out in bookstores 11/6. It explores Lamarr’s rise as one of Hollywood’s biggest stars — and her secret, scientific efforts to help the Allies defeat the Nazis, which would not become known publicly for decades.

Dig this SNEAK PEEK:

Hedy Lamarr: An Incredible Life lists for $19.95. It will be available at bookstores and online retailers 11/6. Also check with your local comics shop. Click here for more info.

    I keep hearing, “That’s HEDLEY!” in my head. “What do YOU care, she hasn’t been born yet – YOU could sue HER!”
