Atoll #1 Review and Preview

Atoll #1 is out this month from Vault Comics this month.

AgentPoyo got his hands on a copy of the new book Atoll and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Keep reading to see the sneak preview as I tried not to give too many details away.


What happens when man (or woman) meet one of the deadliest predators in the ocean? Certain and imminent death. What if that death was created in someone’s worst nightmare come true, all in an arena so people could watch? That’s what Atoll #1 written by Tim Daniel and art by Ricardo Drumond is all about. If your not sure what atoll stands for, it’s a ring shape reef, island or chain of islands formed of coral.


This nightmare arena takes place off the coast of Australia, where a former Olympic medalist is vacationing with her app software creator billionaire fiance on their trip around the world. What starts off as a wonderful day for the both of them, literally, wonderful is the word I’d describe (this book is for mature readers, some partial nudity and sex scenes occur), turns nightmare for the both of them.


The story starts off with a flashback that details the couples day with news reports of them going missing, with assumptions that they are dead already.


Our Olympic star is far from dead though, finding herself bound and tied up with others. Watching the first victim fall prey to the animal that has evolved into the perfect evolutionary killing machine. The top of the ocean food chain, named her Majesty by her captures.


All this captured on high resolution cameras for everyone to watch, all timed to see who lasts the longest before certain death.

So, who’s the next contestant?

You’ll have to find and pick up a copy to find out.

Atoll hits stands this Wednesday, December 7th, 2016. Written by Tim Daniel (Enormous) and art by Ricardo Drumond. Published by Creative Mind Energy. Expect small print runs, as most online retailers are already reporting these as sold out.

(Also be on the look out for an announcement of a special variant)

    Don’t see it for sale anywhere even ebay

  3. A. King says:

    I pre-ordered this from two different online retailers, one of the orders got canceled but I think the other is still good. So I will have at least one copy.

    This review makes me pleased I followed earlier recommendations to check the book out and have a copy held!

      I have read Atoll, White, and Hookjaw. Looking forward to the release of Atoll and Hookjaw. The one thing about Hookjaw that makes me a little unsettled is the “gung-ho” way they depict the military. It’s written by a Brit and he has the one character, Clay Klay, as an overly shoot happy unprofessional military character.

      White totally rocks too. People need to find this book.

        I read Hookjaw as well. I don’t like how they masked all the cursing with special characters, hard to read since there is apparently a lot of cursing in the book. But I’m with you on the gun happy military character along with the story just being sort of sloppy if you ask me. Not for me, I’m passing on it myself.

    Looks like the movie Deep Blue Sea

  6. Christopher Bailey says:

    Have a feeling it will be an exclusive CHU Variant. Especially since this is a Tim Daniel book

  7. Court Gebeau says:

    Not sure what other variants might still be in the works, but the Blindbox Comics variant is in hand and ready to ship – and the color and b/w versions are currently available for purchase on the ‘bay! 😉
