The crew of Lost City Explorers was looking for answers when they hacked into Sagan Labs' files, but they were not expecting the ones they found.
In our exclusive preview of AfterShock's Lost City Explorers #2, the crew splits up into two groups. The first group engages with Sagan's administration over a possible payout for Homer after his dad's disappearance. The second group works on getting into Sagan's computer system, and somehow they manage to pull it off.
Thing is even this group of resourceful individuals isn't ready for what they find, and it will lead them right into the heart of Atlantis, where Homer's dad might be waiting.
Why are people in the building holding weapons, and what the heck is on that video that they found? We've got plenty of questions, and you check out the exclusive preview in the gallery.
The series is written by Zack Kaplan, who definitely looked to The Goonies as inspiration.
"I've always been fascinated by urban exploration and what underground secrets a city holds," Kaplan told THR. "I grew up on The Goonies, so I remember wanting to go looking for lost treasure or mythical wonders in my backyard. And what's more mythical than the Lost City of Atlantis? This is my millennial spin on all that, something personal, empowering, dark, challenging: a gritty, modern adventure story."
