The Lords of the Depths #3: Oceania


Art by Leone Frollo, Perluigi Sangalli; cover by Mike Hoffman.

Underwater heroes and amphibian characters from Jules Verne’s famous rogue submariner, Captain Nemo and his myriad imitators, to Marvel’s Sub-Mariner and DC’s Aquaman (1941), have always proved popular with comic book aficionados.

Hexagon Comics introduced their own “Lords of the Depths” in six series, which we have sampled here in three issues. This is the third.

In this volume, meet:

Oceania (1972), drawn by Leone Frollo, in which two members of the Bathy teams, Alan Foster and Robin Mallet, discover an Atlantean outpost and help its inhabitants fight an evil tyrant.

Marino (1974), drawn by Pierluigi Sangalli, is a young orphan who discovers that he can breathe underwater. This is his very first adventure in which, prior to joining the group Kidz, he meets two young Atlanteans, and fights alongside them against the Sirenids.
