Mia is trapped at the bottom of the ocean with her father's murderer-and they must work together to repair the flooding Dept. H base. Aaron's desperate attempt to reach the surface is their last chance at rescue, but six miles of water and the mysterious creatures that live deep in the ocean are just as dangerous as the rising water and the unknown killer inside the base.

    There's not too much more to say about this issue. In terms of art, it's pretty much par for the aforementioned course. There are some really nice panel layouts to be seen, with a great juxtaposition between color (particularly multicolor in some areas) and gray scale throughout. In conclusion, if you've been digging the series so far, I think you'll like this one. If you haven't, I doubt it'll change your mind. Read Full Review

    The mystery deepens as we explore the backgrounds of Q and Lily in greater detail, unearthing the conflict between them and their relationship with Mia's father. The pace of this series is undeniably slow, but I enjoyed this instalment.

    I was a huge fan of this series especially the art but one had to question when is something substantial actually going to happen? I'm hoping with issue 10 coming up something big is on the horizon otherwise this may float right off my pull list.
