LOW - Issues 1 thru 5.

I think I originally reported that issue 1 didn't do anything for me and I was planning on dropping it.  However, I had already pre-ordered issues 2 & 3 and as I read them the series got more interesting so I kept it on.  Read issue 5 last night and I have to say this is a pretty good book but it is a bit depressing too.  The antagonist family in this book just can not catch a break.  Issue 6 should wrap up this first arc and I imagine a TPB will follow.

Anyone else reading this?  If you haven't and you like Remender's stuff you might want to pick up the first trade.  There's a build up here that I'm suspecting will have a good payoff.



Written by Rick Remender. Art and Cover by Greg Tocchini. In the far distant future, the sun's premature expansion has irradiated Earth, sending humanity to the lowest depths of the seas, hidden within radiation-shielded cities, while probes scour the universe for inhabitable worlds to relocate to. After tens of thousands of years, a single probe returns, crashing on Earth's surface, a now-alien place no human has seen for many millennia. Dive into an aquatic sci-fi/fantasy tale following two teams from the last remaining cities undersea as they race to the most unexpected alien world of all-the surface of Earth.

Remender usually knocks it out of the park for me these days. If I find myself itching for something, I could see myself maybe going for this.

Issue 7

Great stand alone issue.  You can read this without reading the rest of the series and get blown away.  I highly recommend picking this up.
