"Scott Snyder's the Wake is 2 very different horror stories set generations apart in the same universe. The first is about a research team trapped in a deep sea facility with a murderous mermaid like species. Think John Carpenter's 'The Thing' but underwater. The consequences of the research team's discovery and changes the world entirely and leads to the second story hundreds of years later. The Earth's sea level has risen, completely reshaping the world as we know it. One headstrong mermaid hunter discovers a secret the tyrannical new government cannot let her keep. She sets off with her pet Dolphin and joins pirates to attempts to unlock the mysteries that the new world order want to keep hidden. This story is much closer Mad Max but set in the exact opposite of a desert wasteland. The way these phenomenal stories intertwine is quite frankly unparalleled in any other horror media I've seen."-Conni, Rick's Comic City Nashville
