Comic Crypt: HOOKJAW #1 Preview


The classic Killer Great White – reimagined by comics superstar Si Spurrier!

Titan Comics are thrilled to share with you all covers to Hookjaw #1.

Hitting stores in December, the five issue mini-series is written by comics fire-cracker Si Spurrier (Cry Havoc, Weavers, Doctor Who, Numbercruncher) and illustrated by rising star Conor Boyle, with colors by Giulia Brusco and edited by legendary British comics editor and marine life expert artist, Steve White.

The mini-series is set to be an intense modern iteration of the titular ocean predator, which debuted in legendary British comic (and forerunner to 2000AD) Action #1. Initially inspired by the success of the film, Jaws, Hookjaw was one of many Action strips so violent it was banned from the shelves upon release!

This razor-sharp new title re-surfaces with a range of variant covers to collect from phenomenal artists including; Conor Boyle, John McCrea (The Mummy), Marc Laming (Uncanny Avengers), Anna Dittmann, and Steve White.
