This is the story of Luca Torelli, a poor immigrant from Italy who cam to New York to find a better life. Instead of a lanf 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 coldhearted cunning... until he eventually became TORPEDO.
Enrique Sanchez Abuli and Jordi Bernet's masterpiece is a darkly humorous exploration of the criminal underbelly in 1930's New York City. Abuli's distinctive narrative builds the story over time and Bernet's masterful rendition of the title characters and the city he inhabits are stunningly cinematic.
