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.
