Narrowly escaping with (some of) their lives the gang are heading deep into the unknown in search of Pam.

PLOT AND STORY

There is a distinctive sisterly theme in this issue as we take a rare glimpse into the past of Pam and Jolene. We then also focus heavily on Jolene’s drive and determination to find her missing sister making this quite an emotional issue.

I enjoy this series a great deal and especially the way it shifts between drama and action never giving the reader long to breathe before something new happens. Once again Mirka Andolfo and David Goy craft a well timed issue leaving us on a spicy cliffhanger.

ARTWORK 

Issue #3 maintains the high standards set in the first two issues. Andrea Broccardo and Barbara Nosenzo make a fantastic artistic team producing page after page of dazzling characters, ghoulish monsters and grim yet beautiful settings.

The few pages which really stood out this issue are towards the middle when a small group have to make their way across the ocean floor to board a shipwreck. The dark sea filled with creepy looking mutated creatures makes you known how perilous this journey is and what kind of danger is out there.

FINAL THOUGHTS 

Deep Beyond is moving at a steady pace with purpose and comprehension. A story which has different layers to it and always making the reader aware of what is going. With stunning art to back up a good, original story makes this a very enjoyable comic to read.

I read this via an advance preview copy issued by Image Comics and received no incentive to review this comic. All images and art work are owned and courtesy of Image comics and their respective owners.
