Broken Moon: Legends of the Deep #4

created by Philip Kim
written by Ben Meares
illustrated by the amazing Nat Jones

The great C’thulhu has returned to poison the world. But what kind of war can Korbin and his friends make against madness?

The solution may just lie with a small coven of vampires, who have gone into hiding since the destruction of Vampire City. Marzia, their leader, still scarred from the previous battle, is not keen on working with humans and werewolves — until she witnesses firsthand what effect C’thulhu has on the vampires’ prey… and the results are not pretty.

Thus a reluctant alliance is formed in this new issue of BROKEN MOON: LEGENDS OF THE DEEP, a watery post-apocalypse created by Philip Kim (MONSTER WORLD), written by Ben Meares (HELLRAISER), and illustrated by the amazing Nat Jones (’68).

The Legends are True – C’thulhu Lives. Broken Moon: Legends of the Deep #3 Preview.

The ocean holds many secrets… and in the post-apocalypse, they’re coming into the open! First gill men, then the demented creatures known as “Tok-tok”… and now, David, Avery, and Keeney — survivors of the attack on Vampire City — have come bearing tales of mysterious “Depth Dwellers” who speak of an ancient god.

A sudden explosion has sent Korbin and To’klace’s group of gill men scattering for cover, and the culprit is none other than Lorren! But even the crazed gang leader is given pause when something enormous rises from the water, bringing truth to the legends and madness to all living things.

Don’t miss the newest installment of the hit series created by Philip Kim and written by Ben Meares, with moody artwork by Nat Jones.

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Pellucidar Returns Fans To A Fantastically Weird World Within Our Own

One of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ greatest fictional realms is set to make its comic book return in a way that is sure to thrill fans of the fantasy author’s classic works! Pellucidar returns to comics this summer with a new chapter to this timeless classic that explores the idea of a world buried deep within our own.  Sometimes the greatest mysteries are the ones within!

Under special license from Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., the denizens of Pellucidar, the danger-filled world at the Earth’s core, will find their new home at American Mythology Productions in 2017. The all-new adventures will be written by AM’s “The Land That Time Forgot” author Mike Wolfer, and readers will first be introduced to Pellucidar in the pages of the next “TLTTF” mini-series, “Terror from the Earth’s Core,” a special cross-over event that pits the two legendary worlds head-to-head in one incredible, science fiction action/adventure.

In the crossover series, Bowen Tyler, Lys La Rue, Baron Friedrich von Schoenvorts, and Abby Tyler and her crew of explorers will find their survival in prehistoric Caspak challenged when the telepathic, prehistoric Mahars emerge from the center of the Earth through an ancient lava tube, bent on subjugating the island continent. The overthrown, former rulers of Pellucidar will stop at nothing to acquire a new kingdom to enslave, but savage Caspak will not go down without a fight.

In the announcement’s release, Wolfer said:

In the current comic book market, we’re seeing a huge number of crossovers of different licensed properties, but I don’t think any two worlds were meant to co-exist more than Caspak and Pellucidar, which were both created by Burroughs.

I’ve had immense fun writing ‘TLTTF,’ and creating a true sequel to the classic series that injects modern characters into the mix,” Wolfer said. “In the previous mini-series (‘Prisoners of Caspak’), we found that there’s a ‘time bubble’ around the island, which allows it to remain hidden, and those who pass through the veil also traverse time. In this way, we have several new characters from the 21st century who now co-exist with the 1916 cast, and in the upcoming crossover, all of them will have to fight for their lives, not only against Caspak itself, but against the hideous threat of the Mahars.

I’m also a real fan of teasers, so we’re going to see the first hint of the coming crossover in ‘The Land That Time Forgot Annual,’ which is a solo story featuring the prehistoric heroine, See-Ta.

On sale this spring, the “Annual” is a double-sized, one-shot tale written and illustrated by Wolfer, with colors by Ceci de la Cruz. This will be followed by the first issue of The Land That Time Forgot: Terror from the Earth’s Core in May, after which the first “Pellucidar” mini-series will premiere in late 2017.
