I’m almost always pleased with these stories but this issue was truly a GREAT one. Zenescope continues the series on urban legends with this fourth installment. Not only is the artwork amazing but, the writing in this issue is exceptionally well done. Seamlessly written, with no choppiness and no giveaways. The artwork is a beautiful representation of the story and the colors are lifelike and realistic. The other thing about the colors is that as the time changes with the story, likes flashbacks for example, the color fades so you can equate those frames with the flashback or whatever. I think that is very smart on behalf of the artist and it really helps the flow of the story.
Not only do we have a twist on the Lost City of Atlantis but, it is merged with the mysterious Bermuda Triangle, a dangerous vortex in the sea said to have swallowed many voyagers over the years.
In this story, a father’s quest for the perfect cure eventually causes the old man to go missing. Even his son falls victim to the crazed rantings of the old raving old man in an amazing and very creative way.
Lost in a whirlwind of destiny and adventure, the son enlists a lifelong friend and a couple of unwitting civilians to embark on his journey with him. And additionally, he’s using this expedition as a way not only to try to find his father but, also as a way to understand him and connect with him in a way he couldn’t years ago. (Personally, I wouldn’t want an audience for that but, hey, more power to him.)
Will he find his father? What happens on the voyage out at sea? Who will survive???
