Vote For Your Favorite Villain

If you've picked up a copy of THE ABYSS #1 (available here), you'll have noticed it's chock full of villains. Please visit the survey and vote for your favorite villain here. Voting affects the content of upcoming issues, and allows for some characters to get featured in their own 8-page stories in Emergents Presents, which is where the Abyss began before breaking out into his own monthly title. Voting ends May 31, 2022.

THE ABYSS #1 is Here!

Fan favorite, the Abyss makes his ongoing series debut today in The Abyss #1, from InterPop Comics, where he faces off against seven (or is it eight?) villains, including five (or is it six?) brand new ones as he tries to stop a prisonbreak at a supermax Emergent prison. I wrote it, Cliff Richards drew it, Chris Sotomayor colored it, Carlos Mangual provided the lettering, all under the supervision of Rachel Gluckstern and Rylen Sigman. You can find The Abyss #1 here and read the initial 8-page stories that introduced him (and two of the returning villains) here. Read them, and let me know what you think. You can also cast your vote on which villain was your favorite here.

The Abyss - Updates

The latest round of voting has ended, and the readers have determined that the member of the Abyss's old team, the Genesis Squadron, he will reunite with will be Moxie. Moxie appeared briefly in the fourth 8-page The Abyss story, "The Assassin" which appeared in Emergents Presents #7 (which you can read here), and will now be appearing in issue #3 of the regular ongoing The Abyss series, an issue I am currently writing. If you's like to learn more about The Abyss, you can read this interview with me. You can also read the four 8-page stories here.
