Media Release — KaBOOM!, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, in cooperation with Australian publisher Gestalt, is pleased to announce it will publish Tom Taylor (All-New Wolverine, Injustice: Gods Among Us) and James Brouwer’s (Justice League Beyond) all-ages, underwater adventure THE DEEP to a worldwide audience, beginning in January.
THE DEEP is the basis of the hit animated series on Netflix. It was first published in Australia by Gestalt as two original graphic novels but KaBOOM! will be publishing it as a six-issue limited series and making it available in the U.S. and everywhere else. A collected edition will come out Fall 2017.
THE DEEP follows the Nekton family, who have explored the depths of the oceans for generations, discovering the unknown in the Aronnax, a state-of-the-art submarine capable of diving to incredible depths. When an earthquake off the coast of Greenland leads to strange reports of monster sightings, William and Kaiko Nekton, along with their kids Fontaine and Ant (and of course, Ant’s pet fish Jeffrey), dive into the mystery!
