Like a few recent comics, the new title Sea of Sorrows from IDW goes deep.

The creators of Road of Bones go under the sea, to the bottom of the sea, under the ocean. But enough signing shanties of the deep, when there appears to be a sunken German U-Boat carrying gold bars! Let’s get down there pronto!

Writer Rich Douek does his research to place the sunken treasure off the coast of Newfoundland Canada. In the proximity of the Titanic, kinda. The water is deep and cold. Artist and colourist Alex Cormack keeps heavy shadow all around, rendering figures with abrupt and brusque manner and dark countenance. Underwater is even blacker and more cloudy. Where there’s gold, there’s greed. But in the Sea of Sorrows, sorry to say that there are more than shadowed doubts all around. Much more in store in Davy Jones’ locker, me hearties….

This title looks good, check it out while we await the bends of the arms of the clock until we see issue 2 bubble up toward us.

IDW Sea of Sorrows #1, $3.99 for 26 pages of content. Assume Teen +

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
