It’s the start of a new year and with that comes the perfect opportunity to start reading new comics that you may not have read before. Image has found success with Rick Remender’s “Low” and this month sees the release of issue 11. Maybe you have it on your pull list, but if not, we strongly suggest giving it a look. “Low” issue 11 hits comic shelves Wednesday, January 27th and as Remender says himself, “If you haven’t been reading the book this is a good time to jump on as we set the stage for an entirely new adventure.”
Millennia ago, mankind fled the earth’s surface into the bottomless depths of the darkest oceans. Shielded from a merciless sun’s scorching radiation, the human race tried to stave off certain extinction by sending robotic probes far into the galaxy, to search for a new home among the stars. Generations later, one family is about to be torn apart, in a conflict that will usher in the final race to save humanity from a world beyond hope. Dive into an aquatic fantasy like none you’ve ever seen before, as writer RICK REMENDER (BLACK SCIENCE, Captain America) and artist GREG TOCCHINI (Last Days of American Crime) bring you a tale of mankind’s final hour in the cold, deathly dark of the sea.
If you need to catch up on “Low”, Image Comics are currently offering a trade for volume 1, collecting issues 1 through 6. You could check that out here.
LOW BLASTS OFF WITH NEW STORY ARC
Bestselling writer Rick Remender (TOKYO GHOST, BLACK SCIENCE, DEADLY CLASS) and artist Greg Tocchini (THE LAST DAYS OF AMERICAN CRIME) will launch a new story arc in their ongoing dark aquatic fantasy LOW this January.
Previously in LOW, Stel Caine fought to raise herself from the depths of the sea to set foot on the surface of the Earth, battling all manner of enemies.
In LOW #11, Sisters Tajo and Della Caine return to their family home haunted by ghosts of their past. Do they seek blood or redemption?
“LOW 11 is the beginning of the third story arc and a very new direction for the series. Stel and her crew have made it to the surface and finally get to see what’s up there. She’s in a very different headspace now, with a new engine pushing her forward, but we’ve got some pretty devious plans on testing her. At the same time, her daughters Tajo and Della have reunited and are beginning a journey to find their mother. They’re both in very different places mentally, and want different things from the reunion,” said Remender. “Greg, Dave McCaig, and Rus Wooton are producing the work of their careers; every page is doused in love. If you haven’t been reading the book this is a good time to jump on as we set the stage for an entirely new adventure following the first humans to set foot on the surface of Earth in over 10,000 years.”
