Roots, once suffocating under cement, tear through the streets of London to throttle buildings. Vegetable homunculi hold up banks with automatic weapons. There is a green and blooming world beyond our own, fighting back against the human pollutant. We will launch a rescue mission to this Otherworld. But it is cruel and unknowable, and should we become tangled in its vines, more than cities will fall. From Dan Watters and Val Rodrigues comes a story of two worlds, of myth and man, of science and fiction, and the roots they share.

    Batman's Bookcase - by Zack Quaintance Apr 24, 2018

    Deep Roots #1 lays out a bold vision, one that grows (excuse the plant pun) from both the tight muscularity of its script and the beauty of its artwork. Its a story of two worldsmans world and an ancient vegetative world beneathand its art depicts each, as well as the places they intersect, with a gorgeous abandon. This is a rare and wonderful debut that gets the basics of pacing, world-building, and cliff-hanging right, while also leaving the reader with a sense of a wondrous plan in place for its continuation.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 29, 2018

    Deep Roots #1 is a flawed yet engaging sci-fi/fantasy read. The narrative is a little unfocused, but, when it works, it works well. The art of Rodrigues and Farrell is where the book shines its brightest, and thats what pushes it over into recommendation territory. Check it out. Read Full Review

    I wasn't really under the spell of this complicated story. I understood the old guardian waking-up. I liked the story about the veteran saving lives. But I stop following with the secret organisation, the woman in her dream, the other monster awaken !
    Same the idea of a old guardian thing who would be lost after era asleep in a world he will not recognize & a world who will not recognize him could have bee something more.

    Cover - I took the variant. I see a link & she is better than the regular for my taste. 2/2
    Writing - He lost me in the dream ... Damn I hate when I find myself not ready for a story, because I feel that more my fault than his maybe. 2/3
    Arts - Not totally my taste. But that do a good job. And the more
