Overview
Thirty-five thousand years ago, the world was a dangerous place to be human. It was an age ruled by ancient gods and wild beasts, where death lay only a spear-thrust away.

Tiger Lung follows the struggle of one of these shamans to keep his people--and himself--alive in an unknowably vast and hostile universe. Collecting the three-part Dark Horse Presents "Beneath the Ice" tale by Simon Roy (Prophet) and Jason Wordie, with two all-new adventures and bonus materials

It's hard not to like a graphic novel that takes us back to Paleolithic Europe, especially one as beautifully rendered as Tiger Lung. In these tales, Roy (Prophet) and Wordie trace the story of the book's eponymous hero, an ancient shaman trying to do his best for his people against the backdrop of an unforgiving landscape. Both Wordie's use of color in the narratives that bookend the collection and Roy's black and white line in "The Hyena's Daughter" are outstanding. Prehistory is often thought of as that period when people were guided by instinct and rudimentary reasoning to negotiate their hostile environment, but this book uses elements of the mythic and the fantastic to show us a world that is far more complicated. The sketchbook that Roy includes at the end gives wonderful insight into complex process that guided his decision-making in putting these stories together, including, as he notes, "the challenge of trying to visually define the internal life of the shaman." An impressive effort. (Dec.)
