Not ordering it as I am dropping titles left and right, but for the second month in a row I almost put it on my pull.

It just looks like so much damn fun.

Whoever gets this, must post on it ... damn it.

MARINEMAN #1 (OCT100442), a 32-page full-color comic book written and drawn by Ian Churchill and released by Image Comics, will be on sale for $3.99 on December 1, 2010.

Looks interesting and I will be getting the first issue.

Ian Churchill bascially made an educational comic about the sea.

That's really what I got from it.

Churchill shows passion for the main character and all things sea related.  Had some interesting info about no-limits free-diving and lemon sharks for you ocean science geeks that miss SeaQuest.  (Wait, does anyone miss SeaQuest?)  Plus, I liked the artwork.  That's the positive I found.

However, the overall story, based on the first issue, shows no signs of the same passion at all.  It introduces the characters, who didn't feel all that special, and without a linking plot until the last few pages.  But in those last pages I'm still unclear what that plot actually is.  And the so-called "cliffhanger" at the end didn't have me wanting to know what happens at all, all I wanted to know is why that was deemed a "cliffhanger."

Maybe it's aimed at kids and I'm in the wrong demo.  But for a kids book there's a TON of dialog here.  Comiccraft was working over time.

Maybe it gets better...pass it off to a child into science and maybe they'll dig it.
