Aspen Comics has taken great strides to make their signature hero Aspen Mathews accessible in the pages of “All-New Fathom.” The current series launched in July as part of Aspen’s tenth anniversary celebration the “10 for 10.” On October 29, 2013 Aspen released the advance preview of “All-New Fathom” #3.
The new series is the perfect jumping on point for new readers as writer David Wohl understands the lead character, Aspen Mathews, to her core as he was one of the original editors of the “Fathom” series working closely with the creator Michael Turner. In this series Wohl has returned to the roots of the series with a marine biologist embroiled in a fantasy world of undersea adventure.
“All-New Fathom” is a visual masterpiece thanks to the artwork of Alex Konat. The artist’s work is captivating and breathtaking highlighting the beauty of Aspen and her amazing surroundings. Konat’s art continues the tradition of artistic excellence in the series started when Turner first introduced the heroine. With colors by Beth Sotelo the artwork has a vibrant feel.
