German Publishers Schreiber & Leser have dedicated themselves to a rather fascinating issue: the mafia. They are already known for their fondness of crime noir and sometimes rather weird crime fighters like Sokal's Canardo – an investigating duck-fatale, who is hugely controlled by his desire for alcohol, cigarettes and women – as well as John Constantine aka "HELLBLAZER". As for mafia business, the comic book "Scarface" by Christian De Metter and Armitage Trail is based on Trail's novel of the same title that had already inspired Howard Hawks' and Brian De Palma's film. It basically tells the story of an Italian immigrant, Tony Guarino, who turned into feared crime boss Tony Camonte. It also gives an account of how he came by his trademark – the huge scar in his face. Pursuing his business like a stone cold killer, he never used to stop from any horrific crime. The only thing that affected his personal feelings was his family – a weakness that was going lead to his decline in the end. Christian De Metter and Jean-Yves Mitton created "Blut und Schweigen II". They concentrate on the mafia's activities on America's East coast and Chicago, following their tracks towards the American west via Las Vegas. Finally "Cosa Nostra" is settled in Brownsville, Brooklyn of the 1920s. Erwan Le Saëc and David Chauvel give a rather historical account of the creation of "Murder Inc.". An alliance of mafia criminals who offered murder on demand – througout the country, clean and untraceable, and – for a reasonable and fixed price.
