Undertow #1 is quite capable of doing what an actual undertow does. That is, a comic book can't really drag the reader under the water and carry them away literally, Figuratively though, a comic book can drag the reader under in a tidal wave of covers. The first issue of Undertow by Steve Orlando and Artyom Trakhanov will feature a variant cover by Simon Roy. The second issue of the series will also feature a variant cover with art by Aaron Conley.
In the world of Undertow, Atlantis is a world superpower. Atlanteans Anshargal and his hostage-protege Ukinnu Alal hunt the Amphibian, a legendary creature that may be the key to an air-breathing life on land. The first issue will be available in stores on 2/19 for $2.99. Pre-orders can be placed using Diamond Code DEC130486, variant Cover B can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code OCT138321.
