Review: Tentacles at My Throat

Author/Artist: Zerocalcare
Translator: Carla Roncalli Di Montorio
Publisher: Europe Comics
Released: July 18, 2018
Received: NetGalley


Tentacles at My Throat is not your ordinary story. This is the tale of three friends and one secret. It’s a secret that festered for fifteen years before coming back to bite them all. As with secrets, they have a way of multiplying and growing the longer they are left alone.


Huh. Tentacles at My Throat is a witty and fascinating read about a group of friends and a dark secret. I love how each friend thought their secret was just that – something they were dealing with alone. Only that quickly proves not to be the case.

As the story progresses, the secrets get more complicated in a way that mirrors real life. It made for a pretty interesting foundation. Throw in the coming-of-age elements and the dark humor; it is the perfect quick read.


  • Comical
  • Italian graphic novel
  • Dark humor
  • Coming-of-age
