Just like in other walks of life, in comics, more often than not there are teams you can trust. One of those teams, the duo of Gabriel Hardman and Corinna Bechko, have put together a number of great books together, including but not limited to “Heathentown,” “The Crooked Man” and “Station to Station,” and this July they’re teaming once again for “Deep Gravity.”

Created in collaboration with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse, the book takes place on Gilise MG452 aka “Poseidon,” which is described as “Earth’s deadly sister planet.” On this planet, a company mines the planets resources that results in some dire consequences. Dark Horse will be releasing the book as a four-issue mini-series featuring crushing physics and imaginative aliens as only Hardman and Bechko can deliver.

The book launches this July. For the full press release from Dark Horse, please see below.

Dark Horse Press Release

Dark Horse announces Deep Gravity, a new four-part miniseries from the minds of Mike Richardson and the creative team of Gabriel Hardman and Corinna Bechko (Star Wars: Legacy, Planet of the Apes).

Welcome to Poseidon! Gilise MG452, a.k.a. “Poseidon,” is Earth’s deadly sister planet.
A planet similar to ours, yet utterly alien, it circles a red dwarf just three years from Earth. Maelstrom Science and Technology Corp. has the lone contract to mine the planet’s resources. But what once was a scientific expedition has become a beast of profit . . . with no room for failure.

Deep Gravity will keep readers coming back for more!
