He is NULL NARCOS, popular performer in the FREAK-CHIC CIRCUS SIDESHOW, able to endure horrific violence on his body without pain. But outside his nightly shows, Null is a blank slate, with only faint but disturbing memories of who he was before revealed.

When other performers begin dying mysteriously, Null is haunted by a golden-eyed stalker and begins to remember a life he'd thought long gone... a life of murder, terror, and black wings.

    Kyriazis offers some interesting and bold visuals in this issue. The art perfectly captures the tone of the story and the eccentric characters that inhabit it. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Mar 8, 2020

    The Crow: Lethe is off to a great start! A solid introduction to the characters and to the protagonist's mystery and counting with an obviously dedicated team of artists, this series should count for a wonderful addition to The Crow mythos. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 4, 2020

    This is an interesting first issue, introducing a number of interesting characters, a twist on the familiar crow story, a mysterious villain. I enjoyed Kyriazis’s art and Mae Hao’s colours. The issue felt over really quickly, it could almost have done with being slightly longer to get the story really flowing, but otherwise I would recommend it. Fans of the Crow franchise are sure to enjoy this for the twists on the more familiar tropes. Read Full Review

    Despite the most interesting character of the bunch ending up dead by the end of the issue, this debut caught my attention just enough to bring me back to it next month. Read Full Review

    The Crow Lethe issue 1 follows the story of a sideshow circus performer Null Narcos, who has the ability to withstand large amounts of pain by performing self torture techniques to his body. Null Narcos however, has no recollection of his past with only flashes and frames being exposed to him as the story progresses. We are introduced to a unique cast in this issue from his family of performers to a mysterious villain which seems to be stalking him and has control of Crows?

    I was slightly disappointed by this issue in what seems to be a three issue miniseries. The story had a great pace to it which seemed to be a detriment because the story felt short and not fleshed out. The story takes a few twist and turns because of introduct more
