CHALLENGER DEEP #3– Take a deep breath. Hold it. Now, imagine you’re on a -I didn’t say breathe!- on a sunken submarine at the bottom of the ocean, teetering on enough methane ice to blow the world in half if you make Ihe slightest wrong move. Your only prayer of survival lies with the only diver on Earth who’s ever gone this deep. Of course, that was the time he lost his wife and half his crew, but he’s older now. Comforted? No? Thank writers Andrew Cosby, creator of the hit Sci-Fi Channel show Eureka, and Andy Schmidt!

    @Josh – I’ve picked up the series so far, and though I haven’t read it cover to cover yet (I tend to wait until all the issues are published…otherwise, I forget stuff…) browsing through, it looks really good. Love the art, and all those cool blues remind me a lot of The Abyss…
