Solving murders in Los Angeles is the daily bread of private detective Will Profane, but something is strange about his latest case.  

When every clue points toward a famous detective novelist at the center of this mystery, Will's world will transform into something truly unreal.

    In an age where everything is considered merely ‘content', Profane is clearly a book that demands more. If I could binge watch this book, I would. I can't believe I have to wait until next month to get the next installment. Cruel. Read Full Review

    This series debut is a mind-bending read full of shock and awe from start to finish. It's sharply written and illustrated, and like an unsuspecting knife, it cuts open a deadly world of noir bent on turning reality on its head. Read Full Review

    Fernandez captures the noir elements beautifully with art that is immersive, intense and visually stunning. I love the look of this issue and how it captures the tone and mood of every scene. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Jun 5, 2024

    PROFANE is a comic that on the surface may only appeal to crime readers, but in truth, it has so much more to offer. Witty, gritty, and with a cast who are a little bit...unlikable. Just the way it should be. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Jun 5, 2024

    Profane #1 pushes against type in several ways with its detective story. At first it seems to undermine the issue, but the big reversal in the end recontextualizes everything thats come before. That ending more than anything else drives interest for the second issue. So for now, Profane is more about future potential than anything else. Read Full Review

    Nerd Initiative - comicconcierge Jun 5, 2024

    Profane #1 is two industry veterans trying to do something new with the noir genre by exposing what is old. It felt like Momemto by way of Stranger than Fiction, and I have the sense that it is only going to get stranger from here. Read Full Review

    Capes & Tights - Justin Soderberg Jun 2, 2024

    Despite Profane #1's shortcomings, it is still worth the read for fans of crime thrillers with a twist. The unique premise and wonderful artwork made for an experience that was at least worth the price of admission, even if it falls short at moments. Read Full Review
