Coinciding with the release of the highly-anticipated TV series Babylon Berlin, coming to Netflix on the 30th January 2018, Titan Comics will be publishing a graphic novel adaptation of the book that inspired the TV show, with Arne Jysch (Wave and Smile) on both writing and artistic duties. Below you can we have an exclusive look at the trailer and pages for the upcoming Babylon Berlin graphic novel…
Following an unfortunate incident of manslaughter and at a moment of radical change in Germany, Detective Inspector Gereon Roth moves from his old position in Cologne to a new appointment in Berlin. He stumbles into an ever-growing criminal investigation into a pornographic sex ring, discovering that he can trust no one, not even the police.
Set in the 1920s, at the birth of the Weimar Republic amid great economic and political difficulties, this is a tale of corruption, trafficking, and scandal.
Babylon Berlin TV series, which aired in Europe in October 2017 to huge critical acclaim, is a 16-part crime drama set in the hedonistic days of 20s and 30s Weimar Germany. Directed by Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run), Babylon Berlin is the most expensive drama in European history, costing a reported $47 million and filmed over seven months in 300 locations. The New York Times has praised the show’s “lavish production” and said it “lovingly recreates the city’s 1920s streets, cafes and nightclubs.” The Financial Times called the TV show “wonderfully gripping” with The Guardian adding it has “plenty of contemporary resonance.”
Babylon Berlin is available to purchase on the 27th February 2018 priced $24.99,
