They had been at rest for decades, but some lovebirds, Dieter and Lena, brought them to surface: the Maier-diaries. Their curiosity did not kill the cat, but unwillingly awoke some mad dogs. At least that’s what our hero Rolf Dietrich – or is it Rolf Naumann ? – has to say about the men who take an unhealthy interest in these diaries.
But who is this Rolf Dietrich ? What is he up to ? And who is Gudrun ? Where does Lena’s grandfather fit in ? Is this really all about some weird diaries ? Are the vague tests Otto Maier apparently performed at some secret nazi-base in the Harz Mountains the actual reason for a number of secret service guys to set up an armed attack in broad daylight ?
These questions and the possible answers to them are only the first pages of The Maier-Files. In the years to come Pat & Dorn will take you along the winding paths of covert wars, secret ops and very clear and present danger through a decades long and little known history. A history in which Nazis and their counterparts still fight a war officially ended in 1945. A history in which it’s not always clear who’s on whose side. An unfinished history, going on today, and – to our knowledge – not ending in the near future. A history of missing gold, esoteric activities, breakaway civilizations, and governments and officials getting fooled just like anybody else.
Too much for you ? Don’t panic. We’re taking it slowly and Rolf is there to guide us. Just duck the bullets and let our hero do the talking. And remember: trust no one.
With the tekst above Pat & Dorn, newcomers in the world of comics, introduce their comic on our website (which we apparently can not post in our first post, but it's called The Maier-Files ...). For now they do that in two languages (English and Dutch, which is their native language), but they hope to bring a translation in German and maybe French in the near future.
Some say there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch, but Pat & Dorn do actually give away the prequel to the series for free. Everybody who fills in name and e-mail on the website immediately gets sent a link to the prequel in low resolution.
Following books will appear in print and, at least at first, be published by the authors themselves. Work on the upcoming book is proceeding very well, the result is expected before the end of this year. Meanwhile the authors keep their readers posted via website and newsletter on their progress and everything of their concern in the world which is also the one of their characters.

Enjoy your read,

Oh yes, we apparently can't post links in our first post, but passing on the address of the website was rather important, so we put in spaces where there should be dots ...
