Two of my favorite people in comics have teamed up for an exciting new comic. Underground is a five-issue miniseries, written by Jeff Parker (Agents of Atlas, X-Men: First Class) and illustrated by Steve Lieber (Whiteout). Image is publishing it, at $3.50 for 32 color pages. It’s due out September 23 and can be order with Diamond code JUL09 0341.
It’s described as an adventure thriller, with this plot:
Park Ranger and avid caver Wesley Fischer is on a one-woman mission to stop Stillwater Cave from being turned into a tourist trap, but public opinion is not on her side. When locals begin blasting in the cave, Wes and a fellow ranger investigate — and a confrontation spirals into a deadly chase deep under the Kentucky mountains!
I had the chance to read a preview copy, and I was impressed by how quickly I got to know and care about the characters, as well as the (literal) cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read more!
