About Maier files
It all started many years ago when I met a man named Rolf Naumann. I’m dedicating this entire graphic novel series to him and his mesmerizing story. The first time I met him was on one of my work related trips to Dresden, Germany. He ran a hotel business and he was a delight to talk to.
Every time I was in Germany for business I looked him up and we quickly became firm friends. I found I could ask him questions about more or less anything and he would tell me what he knew. During the course of one of our lively conversations, he baffled me by announcing that he inherited a big secret. “I carry a burden for too long now,” he explained, “it sounds crazy but keep listening… ” This would become the most bizarre and compelling story I ever heard. His story became the basis of the Maier Files and in a sense I’m producing the story, I wanted him to write. The hidden history of Otto Maier.
