KING CRYPTID is an ongoing monster & mystery comic book series for readers of all ages!
With over 100 issues planned, this series documents the adventures of New England's supernatural hero -- KING CRYPTID -- and all who cross his path. Every issue feels (and smells) like a classic -- as they feature glossy covers with newsprint interiors and an episodic storytelling style. Each issue can be enjoyed on its own while also acting as a piece of a larger puzzle.
Created, written, lettered, and designed by Alterna Comics founder & publisher, Peter Simeti.
