Dive to Dangerous Depths with Proteus, the Atomic Super-Sub!

In the early 1960s, Dell Comics was inspired by the success of the hit movie Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and they recruited legendary comics artist Sam Glanzman—himself a Navy veteran of WWII—to draw Voyage to the Deep, a thrilling adventure series set in the deepest trenches of our planet’s oceans and starring the hapless crew of nuclear submarine S.S.N. Proteus. Set during the height of the Cold War and replete with giant monsters, earth-threatening disasters, and even an “anti-matter generator” menacing all life on earth, the short-lived title was more than a disaster movie knock-off. It was also the perfect vehicle for Glanzman’s action-packed artistry.

For the first time ever, VOYAGE OF THE DEEP gathers all four issues of the hugely entertaining (albeit short-lived) series, fully restored in glorious color and accompanied by a historical essay by Stephen R. Bissette and personal afterword by this compilation’s cover artist, Rufus Dayglo.

Four retro sci-fi tales of the submarine Proteus, in the spirit of Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

Sam Glanzman (December 5, 1924 - July 12, 2017) was an American comics artist and memoirist. Glanzman is best known for his Charlton Comics series Hercules, about the mythological Greek demigod; his autobiographical war stories about his service aboard the U.S.S. Stevens for DC Comics and Marvel Comics; and the Charlton Comics Fightin’ Army feature “The Lonely War of Willy Schultz”, a Vietnam War-era serial about a German-American U.S. Army captain during World War II. His graphic novel Red Range, with writer Joe R. Lansdale, was also published by It’s Alive and IDW Publishing.
