DEEP ROOTS #1 | Picked by Colin

(W) Dan Watters (A) Val Rodrigues (CA) Dani Strips

Roots, once suffocating under cement, tear through the streets of London to throttle buildings. Vegetable homunculi hold up banks with automatic weapons. There is a green and blooming world beyond our own, fighting back against the human pollutant. We will launch a rescue mission to this Otherworld. But it is cruel and unknowable, and should we become tangled in its vines, more than cities will fall. From Dan Watters and Val Rodrigues comes a story of two worlds, of myth and man, of science and fiction, and the roots they share.
