From official release/information:
Cryptozoo Crew is the second in a series of graphic novels featuring Tork Darwyn, the world's leading Cryptozoologist and his wife Tara. Ever since Tork was young, he's been dedicated to finding and documenting unknown or hidden animals. The more respectable finds in the field concern creatures like the coelacanth which, while generally believed to be extinct, was in fact rediscovered alive and well off the coast of Madagascar. Then there are the more famous, though less scientifically respectable ones like Bigfoot and Nessie. It's these creatures that Tork has focused his life on. He has no problem debunking the uncountable fauds and spending years chasing down thousands of false leads. Because he knows that when he discovers one of these creatures, it will shake the very foundations of science. And he's sure that they exist because when he was a young teenager, he was abducted by Thunderbird, a mythical beast found in the legends of the some of the native American tribes. Only this one was no myth and young Tork barely escaped with his life.
