Image Comics has announced Mirka Andolfo and David Goy are teaming with Andrea Broccardo for Deep Beyond, a 12-issue science fiction series.
“I always loved creating stories. I usually do my own artwork, but while thinking about Deep Beyond, I was pretty sure I wasn’t the right artist to work on it,” said Andolfo in a press release from Image Comics. “The first idea came during a long trip by car with David to a business meeting. He was driving, and we were discussing the idea… Then we connected with an artist we adore, and the game was done. The readers of my books will find some of the elements I typically put into a story, including strong female characters. And the plural is not a coincidence… And, like all my comics, great attention is paid to colors, done by talented colorist Barbara Nosenzo, with supervision by me and Arancia’s team.”
Deep Beyond is set in a toxic and underpopulated future Earth, devastated by the dire consequences of the millennium bug, which caused significant disasters and a halt to civilization as we know it. The survival of the whole of mankind—and, maybe, of the planet itself—is handled by a small number of people.
Here a contingent of talented scientists—despite the adverse situation, and feuds that continue amongst the remaining population—try to understand and study what is hidden in the depths of the abyss. Below may lurk something mysterious and dangerous—even something that could lead to an even more destructive catastrophe.
Deep Beyond #1 arrives on February 3, 2020.
