Hey folks. Tom Stillwell here. I’m the writer and half of the creative team behind Underneath. Hopefully you’ve read the inaugural post of this website telling you a tale of an ancient pool, the man-eating Weendigo and the guardians that defend Chicago from their menace. Did that pique your interest? We hope so.
I’ve been told that the best pitches for comics are short ones. If something can’t grab someone’s interest right away then you’re probably don’t have a winner. With that in mind I’ll keep the premise of Underneath short: Homeless people vs. Trolls.
When I’ve told people that premise I’ve gotten this almost universal response:
“Where can I buy it?”
So I guess we have a winner.
There’s a lot of other stuff involved like hidden underground cities, rituals and secret societies but that will keep for when you’re actually holding a copy of Underneath #1 in your hands. Speaking of Underneath #1, head on over to our gallery for a look at the first six pages of the book. Jim Terry, the co-creator of Underneath, is handling the illustration. Pretty sweet, huh? You can also check out our cast page to learn more about the main characters of Underneath.
Look for further updates on Underneath’s progress soon. Thanks for reading.
