Image Comics announced a new Atlantis pulp monster series, “Undertow”, a few months back, and now they’ve released some more details on the series as well as the variant covers. Simon Roy will provide the variant for issue #1 and Aaron Conley will be providing his skills for later variant covers.
Image Comics is pleased to announce that the first issue of UNDERTOW by Steve Orlando and Artyom Trakhanov will feature a variant cover by Simon Roy (PROPHET) that will make the new pulp series a must-have for readers’ pull lists. The second issue of the series will also feature a variant cover with art by Aaron Conley.
Dive into the world of UNDERTOW, where Atlantis is a world superpower. Atlanteans Anshargal and his hostage-protege Ukinnu Alal hunt the Amphibian, a legendary creature that may be the key to an air-breathing life on land. In UNDERTOW #1, writer Orlando (MYSTERY IN SPACE) and artist Trakhanov bring pulp monster adventure to comics and debut a new take on Atlantis.
