Crime Scene: 5 is the Perfect Number

Freeze! To celebrate the release of The Mammoth Book of Best Crime Comics, we’re celebrating the best crime comics ever, be they new fish or old hoods, in our blockbusting Crime Scene promotion.

Peppino Lo Cicero spent his life taking orders from the great dons of Napoli. When his son Nino is killed he puts down the fishing rods of his retirement and picks up his old pistols, looking for revenge. In this moody, duotone graphic novel Igort, alias Igor Tuveri, breathes an unexpected beauty into the gritty Mafiosi genre, importing subtleties from Japanese cinema and manga.
