Sub-Mariner: The Depths is a peculiar book. They, as creators, surpass the realms of their past efforts by delving as deep as they can into the subconscious of claustrophobic terror

Sub-Mariner: The Depths is a peculiar book. They, as creators, surpass the realms of their past efforts by delving as deep as they can into the subconscious of claustrophobic terror. Peter Milligan, in my mind, can craft better worlds and atmospheres than almost any other comic writer out there.

Writer: Peter Milligan. A searing vision of Namor, the Sub-Mariner as you've never seen! Atlantis. Throughout the ages, a few men have wondered if this fabulous place actually exists. Publication date: November 2008 - May 2009. Fewer have imagined that the city is protected by a wild and vengeful being, the very embodiment of the untameable depths themselves - the Sub-Mariner.

Artist Esad Ribic does outstanding work setting the tone with dark backgrounds and subtle placements of light in just the right places to keep the suspense up. Namor himself is a frightening figure, more so than usual, and here he is depicted as a chilling monster of the depths - the moments you see him, you are left breathless with fear. And then he’s gone! It's not often that I use the words "horror" and "fear" when describing a Marvel comic book but Milligan did a fantastic job of writing one here.

I was never what you would call a fan of the character Namor: the Sub-Mariner. I was familiar enough with him to know he was no Aquaman rip-off but that was really about it. However, after reading some online reviews about this book and how it is a horror-based spin on Namor I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. I have read it over and over again and it still gives me chills. If you are a comic reader and also liked John Carpenter's The Thing, buy this book.

Kinda creepy horror suspense story written from a human submariners perspective about Namor... ya know, if Namor was a shark eyed, supernatural killing machine.

The Story is full of mysterious talks about old maritime legends ( thanks to screenplay writer) and dark atmosphere thanks to E.Ribic , artist I know from Croatia, I have in my collection "Loki" ( first his album on my list) and "Requiem - Silver Surfer" and its my third album I enjoyed to read.
I am waiting for other similar graphic novels from same autor.
Kind regards!

The Sub-Mariner is one of my favourite characters and I was really lookong forward to what I had imagined was a modern re-working of the Prince.

Unfortunately 'The Depths' doesn't cut it.

The writing is unusually sloppy for the often excellent Peter Milligan and the 'Heart of Darkness' parallels are really heavy-handed. Similarly, the artwork is superficially appealing but the character's faces are badly done and the frames seem too static. The lead characters, too, are basically unlikeable: it's hard to care about any of them.

But worst of all is the lack of Namor. He appears about three times in the book, mainly looking in windows. There is nothing of the strong, enigmatic character in this book. In fact, to use his name in the title is tantamount to false advertising!

Ribic provides dark tones and highlights on characters eyes to emphasize the dark mood of this story.
Deep water means troubles, mistery and suspects as Cameron teaches.....

Based on some of the other reviews, it is obvious that mainstream comics are up against some fairly big limitations with their readers, almost as if publishers (still) have to worry about expectations based solely on cover art.

For open-minded readers, this nuanced descent (literally and figuratively) into a hallucinatory ocean to discover (and therefore fail to discover) Atlantis, is a luscious, high quality comic book by writer Peter Milligan and artist Esad Rubic.

The story is certainly subtle enough to invite several possible interpretations of the main characters, a scientist/myth debunker named Stein, and Sub-Mariner (who is always present by his absence). I have always liked Everett's first Sub-Mariner, because he is less a "super-hero" than a kind of hybrid species (with even hints of racial difference) whose sole concern was with protecting his people and the ocean.

This is not a conventional Sub-Mariner battling superheroes comic book. Milligan and Rubic's Sub-Mariner is terrifying, and his only interest seems to be in preventing evidence of his home, the mythic city of Atlantis, from reaching the surface. Set during the Cold War, the period provides more of a cultural than political setting. It is rare to read such a tightly plotted, ironic and beautiful comic book.

Sub-Mariner: The Depths is a peculiar book. It has two of my favorite creators at its helm, both charting completely unexplored territory. They, as creators, surpass the realms of their past efforts by delving as deep as they can into the subconscious of claustrophobic terror. Peter Milligan, in my mind, can craft better worlds and atmospheres than almost any other comic writer out there. Esad Ribic, with his paint-style art, excels at illustrating a world ready to jump out of the page due to its realism. Yet at the same time, his work is so dream-like that you feel as if you are personally connected to the comic.

The Depths takes place in the time before Marvels and The Marvels Project, when costume-clad heroes didn't even exist. However, Namor and his city of Atlantis might (perhaps only in the rumors of the 1940s era sailors). Doctor Stein is recruited to find Captain Marlowe (a fitting Heart of Darkness reference), who went missing in search of Atlantis. Doctor Stein, he being a professional de-bunker of superstition, takes this as a personal mission because he will stop at nothing to disprove the existence of Namor and Atlantis. And so the story goes.

This story is bleak. I was waiting for a pleasant ending, but I never got one. From the beginning, the evil never lets loose its grip. I give it 4 stars selfishly because I was so disappointed with the end resolution. Could the darkness of man really reach that far deep?
