UNDERWATER #3

(W) Steve Orlando (A) Artyom Takhanov

Surrounded by bloodthirsty humans, boiling in their landsuits as the sun rises, Redum Anshargal and Ukinnu Alal's team comes face to face with a primordial god. He's never killed a god before, but that doesn't mean Anshargal isn't up for trying.
The dry frontier takes another life as the pulp monster adventure continues!

If you're looking for big action, underwater pulp adventure, look no further than Image's monsteriffic title by Steve Orlando and highly talented newcomer, Artyom Trakhanov! This man can draw some damn fine underwater scenes (that actually look like they are underwater) and may even give master monster designer Guy Davis a run for his money someday. Seriously, this is what Aquaman would look like if DC was willing to break out of the mold once in a while.
