Titan Comics have revealed the final covers for Hook Jaw #1, which include work by series artist Conor Boyle, John McCrea and Marc Laming.

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 long-established independent comics talent Conor Boyle, with colours 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, Hook Jaw was one of many Action strips so violent it was banned from the shelves after just 36 issues.

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.
