The Rundown: A young mermaid fights to survive a world devoid of water.

Morning breaks on a world covered in sand. In the wake of a sand storm, a machine is uncovered filled with water an unusual occupant. A young female mermaid is awakened by a small axolotl named Lottie who reminds her that they need to find fresh water soon because the toxicity levels in their exo-suit increases.

As she continues her search and discovers some clues that might lead her to water, she finds herself falling into a deep ravine that damages her only means of transportation and as she fears what will happen next, she doesn’t notice that she is being watched.

The Story: Kim delivers a fantastic first issue of an intriguing and engaging story. It has a brilliant concept filled with great mystery and a conflict that immediately got my attention. There is great action and suspense throughout the story and I look forward to exploring this world, this character and her story.

The Art: Kim’s art is beautifully detailed and visually engrossing. I felt myself drawn into the world of this story visually and the visuals are brilliantly done.
