The first thing I think of when I hear the name Michael Turner is fantastic artwork. And even now, five years after the loss of this great comic artist, his legacy lives on in Fathom #2. This is the fifth volume of the series and it has continued to be a beautiful tribute to the founder of Aspen Comics. I have no doubt he would be just as pleased with this as I was.
This issue starts off with a brief look at a very remote city that is populated by a race known as the Blue. Their leader, a terrifyingly beautiful woman, has been grooming a young girl as a weapon of enormous power by enhancing her already superior genetics. Half a world away, our protagonist, Aspen Matthews, has engaged in an undersea battle with half a dozen water-breathing combatants who seem hell bent on killing her. Using her innate powers of water manipulation, she attempts to disperse their attack. Unknown to Aspen, however, her opponents also have a few tricks up their sleeves, metaphorically speaking that is.
Megan Fox is definitely making an effort at becoming the ultimate fanboy fantasy girl. It’s being reported that Fox is in final negotiations to star in Jonah Hex, and that she is already attached to star in and develop a movie based on the comic Fathom.
Fox’s role in Jonah Hex would be that of Leila, the beautiful, but deadly love interest of Josh Brolin‘s Jonah Hex. The movie follows Jonah Hex, a horribly scarred Civil War soldier who spends his days as a bounty hunter. Hex also stars John Malkovich as the villain character. It’s directed by Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears A Who!).
