FATHOM (vol 4) #4

Scott Lobdell – Writer / Alex Konat – Pencils / Beth Sotelo – Colors

Michael Turner’s Fathom continues on for the sensational fourth volume!

Over a million species of undersea life forms exist under the surface, some dating back over four hundred million years old. Aspen Matthews, marine-biologist, has researched many of them in her past. Yet, nothing in her education could have prepared her for the recent discovery of the mysterious Church of the Eternal Depths. Along with the help of her new ally Galit, Aspen must prevent this ancient order from exerting their nefarious influence over the rest of the world. Something that will become infinitely more complicated as she discovers the Church has aligned itself with the Japanese government, which has learned to apply all of the technology it has recovered over the years—much of it from none other than the race of the Blue!

For the legions of FATHOM fans who have been waiting to see Aspen in her element and taking control of her life, now is the time to jump on in—the water’s just fine!

EISNER AWARD-WINNER RICH TAMMASO & BOOM! TOWN BRING “PETE AND MIRIAM” TO STORES THIS MARCH

EISNER AWARD-WINNER
RICH TAMMASO
& BOOM! TOWN BRING
“PETE AND MIRIAM”
TO STORES THIS MARCH

January 24, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA – This March, Eisner Award-winning BOOM! Town adds the original graphic novel PETE AND MIRIAM, written and drawn by the Eisner Award-winning artist of SATCHEL PAIGE: STRIKING OUT JIM CROW, Rich Tammaso.

In his first full length graphic novel, Tammaso tells the story of Pete and Miriam, the title characters, in a complicated relationship as best friends growing up in New Jersey in the 1970s: Mischief Night, schoolyard fights, parents, washed-up film directors, and a roomful of ex-girlfriends. The mundane and the unpredictable collide as Pete and Miriam forge their friendship through the odyssey of coming of age in America.

“It’s a timeless story. We all struggle with identity and the mystery of being an adult when we grow up,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.  “Tammaso brings a lucidity to this slice-of-life that reflects why he’s already and Eisner Award-winner.”

The PETE AND MIRIAM graphic novel by writer and artist Rich Tommaso will ship in March with 112 pages of black and white art for $14.99.

The AMZ Ring

This image has been apart of Alternative Mindz for 14 years now and we always get ask what does the tri yin yang stand for?

well let us tell you

its based on the Chinese philosophy of the Yin and yang

yin_and_yang.JPG

which is a basic polar opposites yin is dark (shady place) and yang is light (sunny place)

or simply Good and Evil

but the Tri Yin Yang is based on

Korea’s Sam-Taegeuk

it represents Heaven, Man and Earth

Ours is alittle bit more of the understanding that life is filled of Black and White and Gray. there is good and evil, but most of us are in that gray area.

the halo ring around it was to make it our own (can we say trademarked)
