“A very old crocodile, so old that he had witnessed the building of the pyramids, was suffering from rheumatism and no longer able to catch his food. In desperation, he decided to eat his great grandson.” So begins Koji Yamamura’s beautifully inked adaptation of Leopold Chaveau’s HISTOIRE DU VIEUX CROCODILE, in which the rheumatic reptile’s uncontrollable appetite sends him into an unlikely exile.

The crocodile is uncomfortably like a real one, a cringy character to follow. The octopus was heartbreaking. Their relationship quite the esoteric psychological metaphor. A proper subject to relate to reptilian gods worshipped, however randomly.
