From the publisher:
A nearly silent allegorical fable of man vs. nature that explores the medium's potential in a stunning, cinematic fashion.
A lone figure in a diving suit drags an enormous wooden ark through the desert, scarring the earth with its deep furrow. A plane crashes. A zeppelin prowls the azure skies, its crew seduced by caged women, while Bedouins and soldiers clash under the blazing sun. This poetic tale entrances as it pulls all these elements and characters together into a haunting yet mesmerizing canvas.
Stéphane Levallois is a computer games and graphic designer who has also worked in advertising. He has worked as a concept designer on such films as X-Men: Days of Future Past, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and Pirates of the Caribbean 4. His comics work has appeared in Metal Hurlant. While he has since done several books for French publisher Futuropolis, The Ark is his first complete graphic novel.
Features a foreword by film director Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans, The Transporter 1 & 2).
A beautifully drawn surrealist graphic novel.
The book is essentially wordless with only nine pages of text between chapters, the graphic sections are told entirely with pictures.
