Deep Beyond–The next creepy sci-fi journey merges monsters, a virus, and a doomed future Earth


Review by C.J. Bunce

In a dystopian future, a devastated planet teeters on the brink of collapse.  The next in the line of limited format comics series featuring a merger of sci-fi and terror, including last year’s Sea of Sorrows, Crackdown, Rogue Planet, Rom: Dire Wraiths, and Sentient, Image Comics’ new 12-part monthly Deep Beyond is part future fantasy, part sea monster kaiju fest.  With the tension of last year’s undersea thriller Underwater, this journey tracks a society taxed with curing a deadly virus while locking themselves inside, cordoned off from an even scarier threat to their survival.

Check out a preview of the first issue of Deep Beyond below, plus some forthcoming cover variants.

The first issue is a prologue, revealing little about the mysteries ahead to be sorted out, but it unveils several intriguing players and feuding factions.  The characters are engaging and leave the reader wanting to know more, and the overall aesthetic is an enticing vision of future technology.  Created by Mirka Andolfo (Unnatural) and written by David Goy with artist Andrea Broccardo (Star Wars: Doctor Aphra) and vibrant color choices by Barbara Nosenzo (The Ballad of Halo Jones), sci-fi horror fans will want to take a look at this project.

Here is a look inside the first issue:

The next sci-fi thriller on the comic shop shelf, Deep Beyond is slated to arrive in comic shops in February 3, 2021.  Add this to your comic store pull list at Elite Comics or your own local store.
