Then an evil zoo shows up and offers Billy's uncle, a marine biologist named Dr. D, an impossible fortune to find a...mermaid?
Their reasoning for the mermaid's existence is baffling, and Dr. D's reaction to said baffling made for a really funny moment. It's an unexpected turn, taking us away from sea monsters in favor of mermaids and corporate conspiracies (especially given Gooseboops' target demographic). This being the short yarn that it is, they find the mermaid almost immediately, and the plight of animal abuse for personal gain takes center stage as evil corporations, mercenaries, broke researchers and zoos vie for ownership of a very self-aware mermaid.
Despite how odd the mythological turn is, it's still a really fun adventure. Deep Trouble also contains some of the most surprising moments of the series thus far. Scientists, for example, were more often painted as evil in the '90s, and here they're undoubtedly the heroes who refuse to cross ethical lines. Deep Trouble also has some of the most violent moments we've seen since Welcome to Dead House, with a shark attack that gets uncomfortably brutal, and a claustrophobic near-downing that had me scared of the water for weeks when I was younger.
Mostly, though, it was the cover art that had this as one of my childhood favorites.
I think for K and I we enjoyed the ending where we wonder if they will all believe Billy now as it seems that he really sees something within the sea.
There is adventure, mermaids, and deceivable people lets see what happens next!
