Point Nemo - the farthest oceanic point on earth from any landmass. A spacecraft graveyard where rockets and satellites can be safely ditched on the ocean floor. In a near future ravaged by climate change, an African astronaut teams with an Indian shipping magnate to mount a dangerous salvage mission to recover the wreck of humanity's first interstellar starship. But what they find is beyond their worst nightmares.  
Mark Sable (MISKATONIC, WAR ON TERROR: GODKILLERS) and Alberto Locatelli (The Believers, Cinque) bring you a sci-fi horror tale that will make you rethink the space race.

    I can see the promise of this title easily just in the initial setup and idea and then to have everything thrown for a loop later on with Katri's ancestry. I'm curious to see where it'll go because Sable has a knack for blending interesting things together like this but it takes a bit to find its rhythm, especially after an intro that needs to load up a lot of things in favor of time to build and introduce characters. Locatelli's artwork is definitely solid throughout and I really like what we get as they get the ship underway to the south pole and we see what they discover there. It's just that there's a ton going on that doesn't make for smoother transitions in scenes and the period of time, which makes for an awkward read at times. Read Full Review

    It's all over the place, but at least it's somewhat entertaining and the art style is solid. Read Full Review

    It's a solid enough opening issue that takes quite a while to get to where it's going, but the final few pages offer some promise that we're going to venture into some far more exciting waters as the series unfolds.I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how the creators lean into the horror aspect of the story, so I'll be tagging along at least as far as issue two. This series has lot of potential for sure, but let's call it unrealised potential for the time being. Read Full Review
