“Carl Benz – A life dedicated to cars” is the title of the very first comic book that tells in colourful images how the car was invented. It is also providing an insight into the fascinating life of its creator, Carl Benz. The comic book, by Belgian artist Willy Harold Williamson and author Martin Grünewald, is published by Sadifa Media and will be available from 9 February 2013 in the Mercedes-Benz Museum shop.
“There can be few more entertaining ways of conveying the stories both of the automobile and of the origins of our company,” commented Michael Bock, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic. “The historical accuracy of these wonderful drawings is impressive, while the speech bubbles really get to the heart of the story. Every little technical detail on the Benz Patent Motor Car is precisely drawn; and Carl and Bertha are immediately recognisable.”
