Klaw by Magnetic Press Available Now
This wildly world-popular comic series about secret wars between clans of ancient, mythic were-animals is collected for the first time in a new hardcover edition containing the entire first cycle of the series in a single gorgeous volume.
Teenager Angel Tomassini has been hiding a dark and scary secret: when threatened he involuntarily turns into a violent and vicious were-tiger. He doesn’t know why, how, or what to do, because when he transforms, he loses control and people end up badly hurt. As if this isn’t enough for a kid to deal with, Angel is slowly learning his father is one of the biggest organized crime leaders in the city. And there are more were-animals like Angel and different creatures too. The high school changes Angel Tomassini experiences are unlike anything his peers can identify with!
This series blends the thrills and excitement of a dozen different genres, from supernatural monster battles to inner-city organized crime, evolving in style as the series progresses. As young Angel matures, learning to live with his new found abilities, so too does the drama, with a gradual, exciting shift from High School fantasy to gangland conspiracy to a lone-wolf tale of survival.
The epic nature of this thrilling universe is filled with mysteries that unfold piece by piece over time, drawing Angel deeper into an age-old war between the various “Dizhi” — powerful spirits based on an ancient collection of totems that can possess and empower those deemed worthy.
