The collection of graphic novels was created to honor the great classic films, which are now in the public domain. Many are unaware or have heard or seen at some point and marked. This collection privileges the narrative of each film, ensuring the highest fidelity to the images (scenarios and characters) and the original scripts. Most of the titles chosen are of silent films, but with themes/scripts/works that until today are references, at the same time, that are redone in modern versions, without the purity of the originals. The collection is produced in three languages (Portuguese, English, and Spanish). The new title is Metropolis, a classic film of 1927.In 3 volumes of over 300 pages, this graphic novel is based on Metropolis, a classic silent movie.
