Humanoids, the Los Angeles-based publisher of some of the world’s most iconic and groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy graphic novels, is publishing MEYER, a fictional biography of Meyer Lansky by writer Jonathan Lang (Feeding Ground) and acclaimed international artist Andrea Mutti (Rebels), featuring a cover by Shawn Martinbrough (Thief of Thieves), colors by Andre Szymanowicz and lettering by A Larger World Studios. The original graphic novel MEYER imagines the legendary Jewish mobster’s very last con job. As you might expect, there are some unforeseen complications.

In this sun-soaked noir set in Miami Beach, Meyer Lansky is dead… or at least that’s what he wants his enemies to believe. But the old man has one last job to pull off, and he can’t do it alone. Once he recruits an innocent bystander, their journey propels them headlong into an adventure filled with murder and malice, towards an ending neither could possibly have foreseen. 

“The imaginary biography of famed Jewish gangster Meyer Lansky is a shambling, South Florida buddy quest where the Golden Fleece is a man’s legacy,” said writer Jonathan Lang. “MEYER puts a bullet in the head of historical fiction, leaving a pulsing body with Miami noir pumping through its veins.”

The highly anticipated graphic novel goes on sale in bookstores on September 24, 2019 and in comic shops on September 24, 2019.
