I’m of the belief that the entire King James and New Testament should be redone as a graphic novel, but I’ll take one of the many stories in Genesis for now. Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler) has been busy at work with his epic retelling of the story of Noah starring Russell Crowe, but did you know that he had a graphic novel of the same story in the works/done? Neither did we, but according to Image Comics they will be distributing the four part graphic written by Darren Aronofsky and Niko Henrichon to the states and it doesn’t look or sound like anything I remembered growing up, but then I’m willing to bet the Noah story from the 1500’s differed from the one in the 1200’s too.
According to Bleeding Cool the series is to be published as four graphic novels, tow of which have already been published in Europe (France and Germany). Those will be translated to English followed by the remaining two.
“It was a world without hope, a world with no rain and no crops, dominated by warlords and their barbarian hordes. In this cruel world, Noah was a good man. Seasoned fighter, mage and healer but he only wanted peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah was beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually he began to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He had decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gave Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth.”
