What makes someone turn to crime-especially in a modern, pandemic-riddled dystopia?

Danny, a seemingly mundane young man lost in escapism, with a spiraling lack of control over his life, witnesses something during a delivery job that will change him forever, turning things as dark as the black, crocodile skin boots that he can't take his eyes off of...

In this criminal thriller from Eisner-nominated writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Action Comics) and rising star artist Somnath Pal (Brigands), the morally gray turns to cold-blooded murder.

    Capes & Tights - Justin Soderberg May 4, 2024

    Crocodile Black has a compelling storyline to its exquisite artwork and in our opinion should not be missed. Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Alien, 007: For King & Country) and Somnath Pal have created something that seems to be truly special with this series, and we can't wait to see where they take it next.

    Multiversity Comics - Kate Kosturski May 9, 2024

    A compelling mystery rich in imagery perhaps does not need its initial premise as much as it thought, so let us hope the creative team focuses on the universal story themes underpinning this issue and less on the current events that seem to have inspired it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 8, 2024

    The world is grounded enough that when there are elements that appear supernatural it leaves you wondering what is going on. But while a mood is certainly created the characters that exist in this world just don't capture your attention. Read Full Review
