“Stunning.” – Publishers Weekly

This is the story of Luca Torelli, a poor immigrant from Italy who came to New York to find a better life. Instead of a life of milk and honey he found a filthy city that was long on corruption and short on morality, a place filled with predators and human vermin.

To survive in such a place, young Luca adapted to his surroundings, lived off his wits, prospered with cold-hearted cunning... until he eventually became Torpedo.

Enrique Sánchez Abulí and Jordi Bernet's masterpiece is a darkly humorous exploration of the criminal underbelly in 1930s New York City. Abulí's distinctive narrative builds the story over time and Jordi Bernet's masterful renditions of the title character are stunningly cinematic.
Torpedo is the Godfather of comics, in both subject matter and execution.

“A darkly humorous exploration of the criminal underbelly in 1930s New York City.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“The stories, told nonchronologically and in fact with no sense of linear narrative at all, are fast-paced short comics that always finish with a violent punch line … it’s easy to drown in the gorgeous art.”
