The Abyss #3 - Preview Plus Read The First Third For Free

Here's a preview I forgot to post last week for The Abyss #3 featuring a scene with Moxie, the Abyss's old team mate who reuintes with him this issue thanks to reader voting. I love writing Moxie. She's one of my favorite characters. You can also read the first third of the entire issue for FREE here. The next third will be up a week from now, and the final third a week after that. You can also purchase the entire issue here and read it all at once for a mere $1.61.
The above gives you the credit information and shows you the characters featured this issue. There are a lot, and this shows maybe half of them.

The Abyss #3 Variant Cover Available

The Abyss #3 with the variant cover by Yuko Shimizu is now available for purchase at Interpop Comics. You can find a copy here.

Yuko Shimizu Variant Cover for The Abyss #3

I'm a big fan of Yuko Shimizu, so I was very excited to learn she would be creatng a variant cover for The Abyss #3. Here it is in all of it's glory. It will be available to purchase this Wednesday at Interpop Comics.

Voting Results

At Interpop Comics, the purchase of The Abyss #3 allowed readers to participate in two topics to vote on which determine the direction of future issues of the series. One topic, "Are Humans Altruistic?" is running until midnight, August 31. You can vote here. The other question was which of four characters from The Abyss (shown above) should get their own solo story in an upcoming issue of Emergents Presents. Here's how the voting went.
Near Miss is a thief who was featured in The Abyss #2 (still available here for FREE) who cannot be touched. No matter how carefully you aim, you cannot hit hit her. You'll come really close, but you won't make any contact with her. We only scratched the surface of her character in The Abyss, but now that she'll be getting her own 8-page story in Emergents Presents we'll get to see what really makes her tick. As for the other characters, they all have important roles to play in the current storyline, which will run through issue #6, and make periodic apearances in issues of The Abyss further down the road. You can see where things stand right now in The Abyss #3 which is available here.

Don't Forget to Vote

As mentioned in the previous post, issue #3 of The Abyss is now avaialble at Interpop Comics. By purchasing a copy (for a mere $1.73), you also get to participate in voting which will determine the outcome of upcoming issues, and in one of the topics this month, decide which character will be featured in an 8-page solo adventure in a future issue of Emergents Presnts. I'm particlarly excited for the outcome of that vote as I've been doing a lot of universe building in The Abyss, part of which is creating a stable of interesting supporting characters and a roster of villains. I'm interested in exploring more of these characters outside of the confines of The Abyss, which, implied by the title, is really a solo book, and not so much of an ensemble book (though the current storyline is certainly a team storyline). You can vote here.

The Abyss #3 Now Available

The Abyss #3 is now available at Interpop Comics for a mere $1.73. There's a lot happening in this issue. New characters, returning favors, hints about the Abyss, plenty of action, a surprise villain, and more. This issue, I feel, is where the book became something more than it already was. Check it out, and let me know what you think. Collaborating with me as always are Cliff Richards, Chris Sotomayor, Carlos Mangual, Rachel Gluckstern and Rylen Sigman. If you still need to catch up with previous uissues, they are still available.

The She-Hulk and I

With the new She-Hulk series airing on Disney + (the first episode of which I enjoyed), here are the only times I handled the She-Hulk.
The trash bag ad was written for one of the Marvel Swimsuit Specials or Marvel Year in Review. I don't have copies handy to tell you exactly which issue, and my jpeg is too small to read the artist signature on it, and this was from so long ago I don't remember off the top of my head who drew this. For more of these ads, take a peek here. The other time was when I tried to pick her up at a Marvel Christmas party. I think this was around 1988. Other Marvel creatives have similar photos of themselves with this She-Hulk as well.
