Broken Frontier‘s Kris Bather reviews The Deep Vol.2: The Vanishing Island
The Vanishing Island is the next entry (in hopefully a long series of OGNs), after the Aurealis Award winning debut of 2011. The Deep: Here Be Dragons by Tom Taylor and James Brouwer focused on the undersea adventures of the delightful and diverse Nekton family.
Now, Taylor and Brouwer are back and have crafted another entertaining, smile inducing tale. To put it in the vernacular off the kids of today I “LOL’d.” Several times in fact. Taylor is having a great run at the moment, with his work on each issue of the Injustice: Gods Among Us videogame tie-comic from DC rocketing to the top of the sales charts, and news that The Deep is now wisely in development as a 26 part animated series, which is an obvious choice, as anyone who’s enjoyed the Nektons’ tales will attest…
