    The Atoll presents real terror on the high seas.  These are not pirates or sea monsters.  These are regular people forcing captives to battle nature's greatest predator on its home turf.  It's something that even Quint would have thought twice about.  If this is how the book starts, I can't wait to see where it goes next.

    I know that I haven't told you shit about this book, but I really do hope you'll check it out. There's some stumbles for sure, not everything is perfect, but it's probably the best version of itself it can be. That said, I had a lot of fun reading this first issue and can't wait to read the rest of the series and that's exactly what a first issue should do. Read Full Review

While the art didn't always work for me, the storytelling is solid enough to make me want more. Read Full Review
