Created in 1911, Fantomas is one of the most enduring characters in French crime fiction with dozens of novels, film, television, and comic book adaptations, each featuring the hooded antihero’s trademark blend of cunning, violence, disguise, amorality and very inventive torture methods.
He is pursued by the tireless Inspector Juve, determined at last to track Paris’s unexplained crimewave to its ultimate source. Part myth, part man, he is the first superhero in history and his blood flows in the veins of all the masked men and women who grace the pages of American comics and movie screens…
