    Written by Randy Stradley. Art and cover by Michael William Kaluta.

    Now in the one-of-a-kind Artisan Edition format, the comic adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film from the director of Aliens, Avatar, The Terminator, and Titanic.

    In 1989, writer Randy Stradley and acclaimed artist M.W. Kaluta released their comic adaptation of James Cameron's Academy Award-winning film The Abyss, the story of the crew of an experimental underwater drilling rig called Deepcore and their dangerous mission to the bottom of the ocean in search of a missing U.S. Navy submarine that would change the world (and their lives) forever.

    Now, IDW Publishing is proud to bring you The Abyss in our Artisan Edition format, presented with the same exacting quality standards as our award-winning Artist's Edition series, just at a smaller (and more manageable!) size. Nearly every page has been scanned from M.W. Kaluta's incredible original art in full color in order to capture all the nuances that make original art special and unique-blue pencil notations, tape, white-out, and more.

    o 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of The Abyss.
    o Gallery section including sketches and preliminaries by M.W. Kaluta!

    Hardcover, 80 pages, B&W.

    Cover price $39.99.
