Dancer. Courtesan. Spy. Executed by a French firing squad in 1917. 100 years on from her death- questions are still raised about her conviction. Now- the lesser-known- often tragic story of the woman who claimed she was born a princess- and died a figure of public hatred with no one to claim her body- is told by breakout talent writer Emma Beeby (Judge Dredd)- artist Ariela Kristantina (Insexts)- and colorist Pat Masioni drawing on biographies and released MI5 files. In this first part of a five-issue miniseries- we meet Mata Hari in prison at the end of her life as she writes her memoir-part romantic tale of a Javanese princess who performed 'sacred' nude dances for Europe's elite- and part real-life saga of a disgraced wife and mother- who had everything she loved taken from her. But- as she sits trial for treason and espionage- we hear another tale: one of a flamboyant Dutch woman who became 'the most dangerous spy France has ever captured'-a double agent who whored herself for secrets- lived a life of scandal- and loved only money. Leading us to ask... who was the real Mata Hari?
