More About Noah by Darren Aronofsky; Ari Handel; Niko Henrichon
 
 
 
Overview
From acclaimed filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) and artist Niko Henrichon (Pride of Bagdad), Noah is a fresh take on the biblical epic for the 21st Century. A fantastical world is about to be destroyed and one man is chosen to start a new one. As wicked forces try to take his Ark, Noah must hold his family together while they watch the annihilation of all they know. Intermixing fantasy and sci-fi with Genesis, Noah both reinvents the elements of the Flood story everyone knows and simultaneously takes the reader beyond them and into the unexpected.

Aronofsky and Handel adapt their script for the motion picture of the same name, coming in late March, to comics format. This Noah encapsulates elements of the cinematic samurai legend: a deeply conflicted man and warrior, vigorous but aging, wishing only for peace with his beloved family, but drawn into a conflict greater than himself. Henrichon (Barnum!, Pride of Baghdad) applies his beautiful and lush artwork to the tale, infusing vigorous energy into the people, flora, and especially fauna of the age, and adeptly pacing the Ark’s departure against the ticking clock of a warrior invasion. Following the line of the movie, the book reinvents the Bible story as an action epic, complete with PG-rated sex scenes, attempts to symbolize Creationism with depictions of DNA, and a subplot involving a family mutiny against Noah. While it may displease fundamentalists, Aronofsky and company’s work makes for a pretty good comic-book yarn. (Mar.)
