Deep sea adventure with a horrific twist! From the creative team behind last year's hit horror series, ROAD OF BONES, comes an all-new tale of bone-chilling terror!
In the aftermath of the Great War, the North Atlantic is ripe for plunder by independent salvage crews. When a former naval officer hires the SS Vagabond, he leads the ship to a sunken U-boat, and a fortune in gold. Tensions mount as the crew prepares to double cross each other, but the darkness of the ocean floor holds deeper terrors than any of them have bargained for!
Plunge headfirst into the icy waters of dread with another historic tale of terror from writer Rich Do more

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Apr 1, 2020

    As a creative team, Douek, Cormack and Birch produced a flawless title last year, and there is no doubt in my mind that this is going to be another massive success for them. As first issues go, it doesn't get much better than this! Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 3, 2020

    Sea of Sorrows works like a pot of water on a stove in terms of its scares. It starts off slow with a few bubbles here and there and then before you know it, it's boiling over. I already knew to give the ocean the respect it deserves. I learned that from Jaws. Sea of Sorrows reinforces that feeling and adds even more reasons to stay on the land. You have to wonder if the treasure trove this crew is after is worth the bloodshed they will most certainly endure. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Mar 17, 2020

    Given my aforementioned lack of interest in horror books, I was pleasantly surprised to get caught in the swirl of this first issue. The ability of the creative team working together is on show with enough script and dialogue to direct the art which shows enough to warrant the need of less lettering, thus nothing distracts the reader from the whole experience.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 18, 2020

    Sea of Sorrows #1 is a solid debut delivering a period piece of horror. The comic is more focused on building tension for what's to come than deliver scares. It's a psychological angle than cheap thrills. Like Road of Bones', Sea of Sorrows #1 is a hell of a start and perfect for those who are looking for a cold frightening chill in these fall and winter months. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Nov 18, 2020

    Although the plot didn't hook me in just yet, I see incredible potential for a great turn down the line in the mini-series which should feel like a reward just as valuable as the gold the characters are seeking. The artwork is astonishing, to say the least and I hope it continues to mesmerize. Read Full Review
