Review: Meyer

Meyer

Al Pacino is one of those actors whose onscreen magnetism makes every movie he makes a must see. Movie audiences have been drawn to the iconic actor ever since he graced the screen in the original Godfather. His penchant for tough guys has been his calling card, often playing rough characters whose lives have not always been the best. His role in Donnie Brasco was probably some of his best work and he didn’t even occupy the titular role.

One of his best roles of recent, and probably one that is so underrated, is Stand Up Guys. It’s a movie about aging gangsters trying to find equity one last time. It’s a nod to a long-celebrated genre which hadn’t had entries in recent years and to a generation whose contributions had largely been forgotten. In a fictional telling of a historical figure we get a reimagining of the infamous gangster, Meyer Lansky, in Meyer, where he gets to pull off one last job.

We meet Meyer in a retirement home in Florida where he is operating an assumed name of Morris Gluck. He suffers endless disrespect and feels as though the community is sucking the life out of him. This all changes when one of the orderlies David breaks Lansky out for one last con job.

Overall, Meyer is an excellent graphic novel which is across between Bubba Ho-Tep if it had gangsters and Pineapple Express if it was a serious drama. The story by Jonathan Lang is engaging and intense. The art by the creative team is captivating. Altogether, a story that is both fun and a love letter  to those gangster movies everyone loves.

Humanoids, the Los Angeles-based publisher of some of the world’s most iconic and groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy graphic novels, is publishing MEYER, a fictional biography of Meyer Lansky by writer Jonathan Lang (Feeding Ground) and acclaimed international artist Andrea Mutti (Rebels), featuring a cover by Shawn Martinbrough (Thief of Thieves), colors by Andre Szymanowicz and lettering by A Larger World Studios. The original graphic novel MEYER imagines the legendary Jewish mobster’s very last con job. As you might expect, there are some unforeseen complications.

In this sun-soaked noir set in Miami Beach, Meyer Lansky is dead… or at least that’s what he wants his enemies to believe. But the old man has one last job to pull off, and he can’t do it alone. Once he recruits an innocent bystander, their journey propels them headlong into an adventure filled with murder and malice, towards an ending neither could possibly have foreseen.

The highly anticipated graphic novel goes on sale in bookstores on September 24, 2019 and in comic shops on September 25, 2019.
