Man’s fascination with the sea has gone for centuries. The depths have been explored in myth, stories, and fables. The many tales surrounding the god Poseidon reach back centuries. To this day, anything mystical concerning the sea his name is somewhat not far behind. Man has always found a deep and profounding connection to water which is only natural as it surrounds most of the world. My Dad told me he knew how to swim before he knew how to walk.
I remember the first time I read Moby Dick. I thought it was a cool story about a man and his lifelong battle with this one mysterious whale. I didn’t realize that it was much more layered than what I initially thought. It was more about a man’s search for himself and his fight against old age. I always wondered what a fight between humans and those who live under the sea be like. In the sixth issue of The Atlantis Chronicles, we get a battle between the two parties, one which will rock both worlds.
We meet Atlan, the son of the new king, who has found a bird, showing the existence of life on the surface, ad who has seen who exactly the surface dwellers are. This prompts an invasion by Atlan’s father, one which causes unrest amongst the different factions, but they persisted and killed the men who were waiting for them ashore, a hey would go no to settle into a fortress they would call, Bazilia, after a renowned warlord. By issue’s end, we find out what happened to Oren’s original expedition and how it led to Egypt of all places.
Overall, an excellent story that though it jumps time. It connects the greater story together in an exciting issue. The story by Peter David is smart and enigmatic. The art by the creative team is vivid and beautiful. Altogether, a story that only deepens with every issue including this one.
