Another Dark Horse offering, The World Below by Paul Chadwick the writer/artist behind Concrete explores a mysterious sinkhole in rural Washington that leads to a secret underground realm. In a series of short adventures, six treasure-hunters risk life and limb to scour the perilous landscape for potentially profitable new forms of technology. Along the way, they're attacked by all kinds of bizarre creatures from a giant robotic stove to a race of squidlike symbiotes to an alien society that wants to breed humans as pets. Naturally they're also constantly endangered by their own conflicting personalities and inter-group tensions. Chadwick has likened the book to the TV series Lost, and it's a fitting comparison.
