    You want these Atlanteans to succeed. Except theyve entrusted an insane bastard of a creature to lead them further away from home in an attempt to save their own lives. Its an interesting premise heading toward the finale of the series that will certainly test every characters strength of will. I have no idea what lies in wait for us atop those mountains, but I certainly cannot wait to find out. Read Full Review

    Two more issues and it all comes to an end. The pace is perfect. This book's gonna end with a bang! Of all 4 issues this one's definitely my favorite. Artyom's art really complimented the dialogue; especially in the camp fire scenes. There's a very special attention to detail in this series, not once has the art ever lacked. I think that says a lot about Artyoms abilities. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge May 21, 2014

    With this issue Undertowgives us a comic that reads and looks different than anything else hitting shelves, to say nothing of the fact that its awesome. It still has some growing to do, though Im not sure whether Im just special or other readers are also having trouble keeping track of which character is which as well. The Amphibian has developed into a pretty interesting character, certainly someone that we want to learn more about. The drama this issue added by showing a shadowy strike force determined to destroy the rebel movement was much needed, it shows, instead of simply telling us, that Atlantis doesnt want the separatist colony to survive. This series has definitely caught me in its strong undertow. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell May 21, 2014

    Undertow is a fantastic miniseries and things continue to barrel forward in a truly exciting way with issue #4. There is a lot of power and depth to this story, and the plot is really branching out in some interesting directions. Orlando and Trakhanov have a real hit on their hands, as far as this reviewer is concerned, and as the end approaches, we can only hope that well see more of this world in future additions.

    This may not have turned out to be an ongoing series, but you can beat that it's going to be one hell of a mini-series. I have to say that I'm really impressed with the story. I never saw myself liking a book about an underwater society, but here it is on my "must read" list every month. If you haven't checked it out then it's definitely worth it. It has a wonderful blend of fantasy and sci-fi that any comic fan can enjoy. Read Full Review
