Fathom (3rd Series)

Vol. 1 of Michael Turner’s Fathom series

Aspen Matthews is a beautiful and unusual woman. She has the lung capacity of an Olympic swimmer, and the bone flexibility and structure of a fourteen-year-old, even though she is in her twenties. But that is only the beginning of the mysteries surrounding Fathom and her newfound water powers.

Appearing on a boat thought long lost, with no memory of her childhood, Aspen later pursues a career as a marine biologist. While working in an underwater laboratory, she discovers an underwater race—and soon the underwater beings, the U.S. Military, and a Japanese organization are all embroiled in a complex mystery. Both the Japanese and the Americans are interested in a mysterious technology which may somehow involve Aspen and her forgotten past.

Fathom is created and illustrated by Michael Turner, the popular artist known for his work on Witchblade.
