Description

Artist Jean-Marc Rochette appeared at the 2016 NYCC where he added a full-page original drawing--in French parlance, a dedicace--to this copy and added "New York 2016".

Also included is

  • (1) an exclusive color print by Rochette of the Snowpiercer published by the French Comics Association for 2016 NYCC, and
  • (2) an exclusive color postcard for the French Comics Framed Festival 2016 with an illustration by Kerascoet. Translated into English from the highly acclaimed French classic, the graphic novel that inspired the feature film starring Chris Evans (Captain America), Snowpiercer tells the gripping tale of the last survivors of humanity.

From the publisher:

Snowpiercer Vol.2 is the second volume of the enthralling and thought-provoking post-apocalyptic graphic novel series that inspired the critically acclaimed movie starring Chris Evans (Captain America/Fantastic Four). Originally published in French, this marks the first time that Snowpiercer will be available in English.

In a harsh, uncompromisingly cold future where Earth has succumbed to treacherously low temperatures, the last remaining members of humanity travel on a train known as Snowpiercer while the outside world remains encased in ice.The occupants aboard the Snowpiercer believed themselves to be the last humans alive, yet they soon learn that they are not alone. There is another train that could potentially spell destruction for the passengers of the Snowpiercer as it carves a trail through the endlessly freezing terrain. This second train houses a small band of people that are willing to brave the relentless cold in search of the truth and discover what is left of the world by any means necessary.
