      Some interesting ideas presented here but the artwork is some of the worst I ve seen in a mainstream comic It was pretty much impossible to determine what was going on in the action scenes.

    2. Titas (I read in bed) says:

      What if Atlantic underwater people were much advanced in every aspect than us surface crawlers Undertow starts with a fresh premise An explorer crew of Atlantic society comes up to check life above ground and stumbles upon cavemen, mammoths and some things that are unexpected or may be impossible too Undertow has a very unique idea but it also has too many problems It starts fluently but one after another fights, it becomes repetitive There are just too many fights taking place which do not give [...]

      Undertow Volume 1 Boatman s Call is a story about Atlantis It seems like it should be high adventure, but strange art and a confusing story bogs it down.The story jumps around, but color choices in the art sort of help to keep that straight There is a spaceship that needs to be investigated and a strange amphibian humanoid that must be hunted and found This leads a group of explorers to the surface They make an odd sight with their helmets full of water so they can survive There are political ma [...]

      Interesting story that ultimately has too many competing plots Also, some of the worst art I ve ever seen in a comic released by a major publisher The story, about a rogue group of Atlanteans searching for the Amphibian, a mutant who can breathe both on land and in water and just may be the salvation of their race, is promising But it all gets side tracked by a bunch of political scheming, characters who aren t distinguished enough from each other to keep clear who is who, and some seriously mud [...]

      Pros thought provoking, fresh conceptCons artwork during action, cussin merfolk I saw Steve Orlando at a NYCC panel and his book seemed just crazy enough to check out This is a reverse Atlantis story, wherein the Atlanteans are an advanced race of merfolk while humanity is struggling in the stone age As outlandish as that sounds, this book is pretty rich The Atlanteans have established a society fiercely divided by class and engaged in constant war This volume focuses on a sect of anarchists see [...]

    6. Paul Allard says:

      The premise behind this comic is that Atlantis predates human civilisation and the Atlanteans are trying to find a way to survive and evolve Prehistoric humans fail to understand their advanced neighbours The main characters are looking for an amphibian so that they can use its DNA to breathe air as well as water.Characters are quite well developed and the plot also deals with the internal politics of Atlantis and the Deliverer, their ship.I found the digital version of this hard to follow, one [...]

    7. Chris says:

      Interesting graphic novel with a lot of potential The story is a reverse Atlantis setup, where Atlantis is a race of technologically adept merfolk who evolved long before humans did Similarly, the plot is best described as reverse Captain Nemo, where the rebel leader Redum Anshargal leads a band of exiles out of corrupt decaying Atlantean society to study the surface world circa the Pliocene Instead of humans in diving gear underwater fighting giant squid, we have Atlanteans in water tank suits [...]

    8. Daniel says:

      This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book Rated 2.0 of 5Atlantis Atlanteans exploring the surface world in water filled space suits Mammoths Crazy gods And the search for a DNA key that might bridge the gap between the under water dwellers and the surface walkers This sounds like an ambitious, high adventure book, which is what had me request it Unfortunately, it s a bit too ambitious and lacks support to pull it off.It s nearly impossible to talk about this book without first [...]

    9. Rachelle (RavenclawRachelle) says:

      I m unsure whether this was a low quality resolution in the copy I received, regardless I found the art style and colour palette to be lacking in this graphic novel Often the art and the colours interfered with the readability of the text, with the plotline already difficult to follow in places, this was a serious detraction.I found the plot lines difficult to follow as several were introduced in quick succession and not adequately separated The author needed to take time with world building an [...]

    10. Tom Ewing says:

      Strong flashes of promise in this Image comic solicited, but clearly not written, as a mini series bogged down by poor pacing and artistic problems Artyom s Trakhanov s storytelling is fine, with plenty of gritty, messy action sequences, but he has real difficulties distinguishing between characters The loss of a limb, for instance, is traumatic for a character but a great blessing for the reader, who can finally tell two of the Atlantean rebel heroes apart The colouring is effective at selling [...]

    11. Martin says:

      On the ship Deliverer, under the command of rebel leader Redum Anshargal, a group of Atlanteans flee an oppressive Atlantis in search of freedom, which means finding a way to live on land Characters and plot seem confused and confusing Redum doesn t convince as a charismatic leader Ukinnu, the new recruit through whom the story is largely told, is a spoiled rich kid who doesn t like the life mummy and daddy had planned for him Much of the story involves a search for the fabled Amphibian, who may [...]

    12. Cale says:

      Well, it s pretty, in an excessively line heavy and saturated color sort of way But the actual story here, replacing land based life with equally evolved sea humans, doesn t ever quite connect with me The story s dense in its world building, to the point that it overwhelms the actual plot in some places The idea of the sea dwellers trying to explore the land like humans explore underwater is interesting, but the political posturing and betrayals aren t quite as involving Too many characters too [...]

    13. Jennifer says:

      I thought that the ideas and characters in Undertow were interesting, and I liked the textured art, but the combination of the textured art and the number of color palettes used, and the frequency with which they changed, didn t really work for me To me, the colors produced a visual mud that made the art chaotic and hard to digest.I think that the inversion of land and water is interesting, as well as the exploration of social ideas, such as the balance between comfort and true freedom, and the [...]

      It had potential however, it just seemed too convoluted and all over the place, I couldn t even get vested in any of the characters.You have a group going on an expedition from Atlantis to the Surface World, so that s interesting Even the fighting scenes couldn t really save this one for me, it just needed something , I can t put my finger on it, but something was off.The series has potential so I m not gonna say this was bad, I m just gonna say for an opening it was okay.Rating 3 out of 5 Read [...]

    16. Theediscerning says:

      A completely poor title in every respect The characters all look exactly the same like badly drawn zombies, so just imagine how easy they are to discern when wearing identical helmets Their names are execrable nonsense The plot isn t much better, concerning some quest to find the salvation of the Atlantean race, and or an insurrection on a space craft, and or well, something to do with class, inheritance, some kind of relationship I just couldn t tell, and just couldn t care.

      I do not like it neither history nor the illustrations seemed to me particularly beautiful.Non mi piaciuta n la storia n i disegni mi sono sembrati particolarmente belliANKS TO NETGALLEY AND DIAMOND BOOK DISTRIBUTORS FOR THE PREVIEW

    19. Koen Claeys says:

      Steve Orlando wrote a fantastic story but Artyom Trakanov s art made it difficult to get a grasp of what exactly was happening on the pages I m sure I would have adored this title if the art was nearly as good as the writing Damn, what a missed opportunity

    20. Ricardo Baptista says:

      I wrote about this comic here.

    21. Julie Luther says:

      Nothing really that special for medidn t really hold my attention.

    22. Teodor says:

      Interesting idea marred by confusing artwork and muddled storytelling.

    23. siobhan Quinlan says:

      I liked this but i didnt like the artwork

    24. Rose says:

      Fascinating premise, some unusual artistic choices I loved the art and found the start to this series very interesting.

    25. Helen Damnation says:

      Decent ideas that don t land, murky art that s hard to follow, dialogue that just feels awkward.I went into this book wanting to like it, it just wouldn t let me.

    26. Scott Schmidt says:

      I really tried to get into this one, but just couldn t The themes characters appeal to me greatly, but the art, while appealing in its own right, just doesn t lend itself to readability.

    27. Erik says:

      Interesting ideas poorly handled The art is ok, but is a bit hard to follow Writing is also pretty confusing.
