A team of eight operatives from the global conglomerate Water Industries are on a detail filming the environment of the Challenger Deep -- the lowest point on Earth.
They find a surprising bounty of life, where previous research found only sparsity.
Communication with their satellite labs inexplicably ceases.
Video feed is lost and changed.
Is there more in the bowels of the abyss than just wayward jellyfish?

I just love the aesthetic of your designs, the uniforms, and especially your palette <3

It's good to see that this one is coming out of suspended animation. Maybe its metabolism is just slow because of the cold and pressure.

Back!
Hey folx! I just wanted to pop in and say that I'll be attempting to update this comic to finish (~45 pages), but the updates will be irregular at best. I thought I'd be able to juggle drawing this alongside my other webcomic and my dayjob, but I was wrong. If you like this comic, follow me on Tumblr to keep up with updates and my art.

Cheers \m/

Soo hooked
Read the first 25 pages in no time, plan on discussing your book on a podcast called The Bearded Beacon. Should be able to hear it on Dec 15th 2015. Great work and can't wait to hear what my fellow podcaster has to say about it.

Panel 3 is supposed to say "Aleutian Station" on the window.

Absolutely stunning colors and features... I keep feeling claustrophobic.

eerie awesome creepy... "flesh-eating" "goblin shark" and "picks at carcasses" are dark descriptives that work so well with the images. Great ending that makes you feel like jumping off a cliff to escape.

Those submarines look sort of like cars. Those ocean currents almost resemble clouds. That facility doesn't look watertight at all, especially not under any sort of significant pressure. The people seem to have forgotten their diving suits. And that terrain feature looks startlingly like a man-made road.

Hmmm... I'm starting to have my suspicions that this page doesn't take place under water at all. >_>

Wow
This is beautiful! I am really excited about that mysterious phosphorescent blob. And curious about why the company would lie about it being a shark...

@space-case: Thank you, I'm stoked you're into it! I bet you hate the newest page, though~ Nothing has been revealed! Nothing has been resolved! Haha.
