This volume compiles a series of short stories centered around the tough as nails, chain smoking, hard drinking womaniser, Luca Torelli, a.k.a. Torpedo, a hit man for the Mafia in Depression era New York.
The stories are independent of each other and none of them are longer than 10 pages long. The drawings are fantastic in black and white, perfect to depict the tough world of the mafia underworld. The main character is tough and mean looking, the baddies are cartoonish and all women are sensual and voluptuous.
The main theme of Torpedo is humour, a very specific kind of dark humour around the mafia topics. However, I'd say that lots of them are based around puns on words that work fantastically well in the native Spanish, which is what this review is based on. If the editorial has done a half decent job on the translation front, then this is a collection very much worth exploring.
