In an underpopulated future Earth, devastated by the dire consequences of the millennium bug, the survival of mankind - and, maybe, of the planet itself - is handled by a small number of people. Talented scientists who, despite the adverse situation and the stupid feuds that continue to divide the small number of people still alive, try to understand and study what is hidden in the depths of the abyss. Something mysterious and dangerous, which could eventually cause an even worse and more destructive catastrophe!

The 100 meets LOW, with a hint of Death Stranding in the brand-new sci-fi thriller series from acclaimed creator MIRKA AN more

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 3, 2021

    Broccardo does a great job with the art in this issue. There is so much detail to be found within every page. Everything from the environments to the characters are drawn with style and I love the tone of the art in this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Mike Eakins Feb 9, 2021

    Deep Beyond #1at timeshas a Ridley Scott meets David Lynch vibe. The superb storytelling of Scott and the unknown surrealism of Lynch (I feel) is present on every page of this book. Even if youre not a fan of science fiction, there is still one hell of a thriller-mystery story to be told and not tobe missed. This book was super fun and I cant wait to see what is in store for these characters. Especially Eve! Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Feb 2, 2021

    Deep Beyond has kicked things off with a bang as I for one am invested. A great looking comic with some dark horror moments but it's the mystery surrounding the different plot points in play and the intriguing characters that will make me come back for issue #2. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Feb 2, 2021

    Other than the New Years Eve party, this first issue does a good job establishing the storys emotional stakes and characters while steadily building up its world. The next issue is shaping up to be more action-driven, so readers can expect to see more of this poisoned Earth and its mutant terrors. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Feb 6, 2021

    Familiar tropes and characters set in familiar world mark Deep Beyond #1 as the opening issue that feels very, very familiar. Some lovely artwork and excellent action set pieces aren't enough to elevate this opening issue above the average. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 3, 2021

    Deep Beyond #1 isn't a bad comic at all. There's a lot that's interesting and as it progresses there might be more to it. But, the first issue doesn't stand out from the crowd. There are far too many comics out currently with similar concepts. There are even comics that have a similar visual style and color palette. In a time when that wasn't the case, Deep Beyond #1 might have been one to really notice. But, as is, the comic is outshined by others that are far more interesting and deliver a better hook.

    COMICON - Brendan M. Allen Feb 9, 2021

    The inherent challenge with mashing well worn tropes together is that each really has to elevate the other to break away from boilerplate and head into new, uncharted territory. Deep Beyond just doesn't get there. It feels overly familiar, especially since there are a couple titles on the market currently telling very similar stories. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Jan 22, 2021

    The story feels like it tries to pack too much into twenty-two pages. However, the events that do occur are compelling, and I am interested to see if issue #2 does a better job of bringing everything together. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Feb 9, 2021

    I may have to eat my words on this one, but it's a lot to digest in this issue. One gets how a creative team has to set the tone and introduce all the characters and the story. It's like some pieces are forced and organically did not come together. However, Settle in for the haul as the art is strong and elements of the story have the potential to be something special. It's alright to stumble at the start as long as you run the race and finish strong! Let's see what happens in the Deep Beyond! Read Full Review

    It definitely isn't a perfect debut, but there's still enough here that's interesting"particularly the art from Andrea Broccardo and Barbara Nosenzo, which gets. just weird enough while grounding things in reality"to make this a series worth keeping an eye on. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Feb 4, 2021

    Its important for a first issue to be memorable and to have an interesting hook to bring readers back for more. Deep Beyond #1 possesses neither quality. A pretty fantastic job by the art team is squandered on a story with no sense of direction or identity. If youre on the fence on whether to pick this up dont. This was a frustrating experience, made passable thanks to an underserved art team. Read Full Review

    It was ok. It wasnt what I was expecting at all. Both the art and story just caught me off guard in terms of being a different tone than expected. Overall though it wasnt bad. I am a little intrigued to see if they build more in a good way.

    The setup is interesting, the colors are excellent. We don't dwell on any character long enough to form any attachment, though it could still happen down the line.

    I don't know, with so many post-apocalyptic books out there, I'm just looking for something more...
