The Atlantis monster quest series Undertow (Written by Steve Orlando, out 2/19) is receiving variant covers for its first two issues. Let’s hope this pulpy action story continues the roll that Image has been on lately.
[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
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.
