Image Expo is chugging along, tossing out new series announcements from big name creators like it ain't no thang. The latest is Low, a sci-fi aquatic fantasy from Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini. We have no fucking clue what a sci-fi aquatic fantasy is, but we're sure it will break multiple records as it sells out and goes back to press for multiple second printings. The Outhouse has undercover sources working to confirm rumors that Eric Stephenson has a gigantic gameshow style wheel in his office with writers, artists, and genres, and he just spins the damn thing to come up with new books. We'll update you when we know more.
UPDATE: Rich Johnston over at Bleeding Cool has some preview images as well as some info he got from Rick Remender in his hotel room, where the two are apparently having some kind of affair. We hope Rich knows what he's getting into - we hear Remender is into hobo water sports:
The idea for Low was born a number of years ago as I was reading an issue of National Geographic that was discussing the inevitable destruction of our solar system as the sun will inevitably expand and consume everything. I realized that this was a fact I had become aware of when I was about seven or eight years of age. And it reminded me of all of the scenarios that I imagined as a kid revolving around mans struggle to survive as the sun expanded. I remember it made me think how insignificant and useless every single thing we do is if one day the sun is going to consume everything. This series revolves around people facing that dilemma and finding the strength to remain optimistic throughout.
UPDATE - Press Release from Image:
Frequent collaborators Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE) and artist Greg Tocchini (Uncanny X-Force, Last Days of American Crime) will bring readers on another high-octane science fiction adventure, this time to the lowest depths of Earth after it has been ravaged by the sun’s radiation.
