Michael Turner's FATHOM continues on its sensational fourth volume!

Tensions below the surface have reached a breaking point, and as the war drums sound, the special-forces unit of the Japanese Undersea Army, launches a powerful attack upon the Church of the Eternal Depths... and only Aspen Matthews can prevent a sub-oceanic holocaust that would devastate all life on the planet! For the legions of FATHOM fans who have been waiting to see Aspen in her element and taking control of her life, now is the time to jump on in-the water's just fine!

    It's a series that makes good use of its exotic setting and its diverse characters and conflicts. There's nothing soggy about this series (sorry, couldn't resist). Read Full Review

    While it would be difficult to replicate Michael Turner's art, Alex Konat echoes the slick lines of the comic's creator, though his style is more rounded and smooth than Turner. He changes the angle of panels well, but a lot of the shots are from the same perspective. I thought he matched Wohl's script, though there's room for him to experiment more. Overall, Fathom was a pleasant surprise find for me this week. Read Full Review

    I expect more from Aspen, but lately they’ve been going to the same stable of writers over and over and each of them has a similar formula that is just not that interesting. The stories really need to fleshed out more and perhaps a new editor to help keep storylines from ballooning out of control or even shorter series from being rushed and dumped. Honestly, I’ve read books that are far worse but this book has better potential than that and the company has been around long enough to deliver a great product at this point. Read Full Review
