Review: Dept. H #8
Trapped in a flooding undersea base, Mia and the crew stumble upon a scientific discovery as their time is running out. They begin to fight among themselves about what to do with this valuable information, until one Dept. H crew member decides to take matters into his own hands.
As pressure mounts from both the inside and outside, Bob’s story is told in Dept. H #8. Bob is much more than his appearance would suggest and this issue really makes that apparent. The tale is a curious one considering Mia and Roger sit in a flooding chamber. But, writer Matt Kindt delivers a distraction from that.
The art by Kindt and Sharlene Kindt is much darker and contributes well to the mounting pressure in the story. It manages to do a superb job keeping things as grim as the situation appears. Yet there still seems to be a contrast in the atmosphere as the view switches from inside the chamber to outside of the chamber.
