About

Covers for issues one and two of four issues
Covers for issues one and two of four issues

A young woman travels to Antarctica for a new job only to find herself in the middle of mayhem, mystery and mythical monsters! The four issue first arc will be covered in 128 full color pages. 

Brief Synopsis and Breakdown

While on her way to a new job, Victoria stumbles across DEEP, the Department of Exterior Earth Protection and finds herself in a life-or-death scenario with creatures straight out of mythology. Hollow & D.E.E.P. is an ongoing series broken down into four-issue story arcs about Victoria and the Department of Exterior Earth Protection. DEEP’s main function is to safely return wayward mythical and supernatural beings back to the Hollow: a world within the earth that is only accessible through an other-dimensional portal in Antarctica.

Hollow & DEEP will be four full colored digital and printed issues at 128 pages total, some of which will include alternate covers and pinups from people working within the comic industry. The four issues contains some cursing and some gore but nothing extreme or warranting an X rating.

We plan to fully fund production of four full colored digital and printed issues totaling 128 pages. The funds will be divided appropriately over the major areas of production common to comic creation. Below you will find a breakdown of how the funds would be managed as well as early mock-ups of a printed copy of issue one of four.

Danimation2001 (Daniel Salgo) and Chas! Pangburn worked on the first issue as colorist and letterer/editor respectively. The hope is to retain/hire them for the remaining three with the funds provided from a successful campaign.
