“WATER… WATER… EVERYWHERE!”
On a restless ocean, a group of weary survivors contemplate their grim fortune: What had started out as a fun little fishing trip soon turns into a nightmare of damnation, trapped on a floating prison. The continents have been hit by a plague that has turned humanity into living corpses – leaving our castaways at sea to fend for themselves! With provisions low, hope comes in the form of a luxury liner sailing into view on the horizon… All they needed to survive would be on board, but who among them has what it takes to find out what happened to its crew and passengers?

    so I’ve been vaguely aware of this for a while, but finally seeing them together has made me realize that Image has two titles out on supernatural investigation teams featuring Sasquatch as a central character

    that’s lame

    Isnt the main character in Proof and the sasquatch in Perephanauts the same dude ? it’s just kinda like proof is his own comic ?

    Nope, Proof is completely separate from The Perhapanauts in every conceivable fashion… John Prufrock, the bigfoot in Proof, is the only agent with the organization that hunts monsters, and he never kills them. Proof is a straight-up horror/adventure book, and Perhapanauts is a lot more PG, more cartoony, more Saturday-morning.

    Rodrigo, I hope you think it’s also lame that DC publishes more than one book with super-powered heroes that team up to fight super-villains.
