A very interesting, original concept by one of the great writers of our time, Scott Snyder's deep sea, sci-fi epic looks to be a real edge of your seat thriller. The director's cut also features production notes for the book which help you see the process that goes into developing a title. Aside from that, the story is very intriguing as a group of experts are brought to an oil rig on the ocean floor to investigate a strange noise from an even stranger creature. The artwork has a very distinct style that adds to the atmosphere of the book, it isn't outstanding but is very fitting of the story. I think it's very clear from the first issue that things are going to take a horrifying turn on the ocean floor that will amp up the action quickly.

Awesome book by Snyder. The Quest starts 200 years earlier and goes to Dr. Archer, a cetologist, in the Gig Harbor, Washington. Agent Astor Cruz boards her boat to listen to a sound he found. He joins him after he brings up how she can get back with her son and help him and DHS. She joins a Dr. Marin, Folklore and Mythology, Meeks and a Dr. Wainwright. There in a base camp on a Ghost Rig under water. Each person was brought there for a different reason as a man gets hurt and Dr. Archer follows the sound to a captured species behind glass. 100,000 years ago a cave man puts a futuristic object by his eyes....

I loved this first issue. It instantly got me hooked and curious about what is going on. Found the storytelling interesting and Snyder excels at dialog and setting a tone as usual.
