As well as the complete Aspen: The Extended Edition, the three issue mini-series which bridges the gap between volumes one and two of Fathom. If that wasn’t enough, the Definitive Edition includes both original Fathom Swimsuit issues featuring many of today’s hottest artists and a massive cover and pin-up gallery featuring virtually all of Turner’s original Fathom covers and more.
Michael Turner’s Fathom tells the story of Aspen Matthews, who grew up with a special link to the water. As a marine biologist, Aspen gains an appointment to the team of the Deep Marine Discovery habitat, or the DMD—a permanent base on the sea floor, built to study something they found there—something not of our world. It is the start of a whole new life for Aspen, but not in a way she could have ever imagined…and the fate of two civilizations will rest in her hands.
Featuring the talents of Michael Turner, Bill O’Neil, Geoff Johns, Joe Weems, JD Smith, Peter Steigerwald, and many more, the Fathom: Definitive Edition Trade Paper Back is a massive 496 pages and the most complete collection of Fathom ever. Michael Turner’s Fathom: The Definitive Edition also features an introduction by Fathom writer and comic book superstar Geoff Johns, along with introductions by Frank Mastromauro and Peter Steigerwald and so much more!
