A master of disguise, the ìunseizableî FantÙmas inhabits shadows; no-one knows his true identity or appearance. His penchant is for criminal atrocities and random acts of ìbeautiful-compulsiveî violence, human carnage on a mass scale, outrageous theft, arson and destruction, virtuoso displays of terrorism and chaos compounded by the brutality of the Paris street-gangs under his command.
FANTOMAS: THE CORPSE WHO KILLS (Le Mort Qui Tue, 1911), the third and perhaps most inventive book in this astonishing series, was acclaimed by the Surrealists for its dream-like imagery, wanton cruelty, and gallows-black humour. It was filmed by Louis Feuillade in 1913. This new edition includes an illustrated introduction on FantÙmas and the Surrealists, by editor Candice Black.
Solar Research Archive presents classic texts which influenced the members and affiliates of the Surrealist Group.
