I don’t think I need to insult your intelligence by reminding you how amazing the art of Stuart Immonen is. So when I heard he would be returning to DC, I knew instantly that I would be on boards. Then I found out it was a new Hill House Comics project, and I was even more intrigued. Let’s take the Plunge shall we?
The fact that we’re dealing with horrors of the sea means we are going to get some opportunities for epic pages. You see one example above, but I have to show you another.
I mean…wow! Oh, did I forget to mention that would be written by Joe Hill himself? Now, check out the synopsis: “In the aftermath of a devastating tsunami, an exploration vessel known as the Derleth begins sending an automated distress signal from a remote atoll in the Bering Strait. The only problem is that the Derleth has been missing for 40 years. Marine biologist Moriah Lamb joins the Carpenter Salvage team to recover the Derleth’s dead…only to find that in this remote part of the Arctic Circle the dead have plenty to say to the living…”
The book doesn’t hit shelves until February 19th, but the final order cutoff is January 27th, so make sure you tell your local shop that you want it NOW!
