Titan Comics is a division of Titan Publishing who, as well as releasing all-new monthly comics titles, continues to restore and reprint the best classic comics, bringing back seminal titles of yesterday in deluxe volumes. They have just released a translated version of the 1982 French graphic novel “La Transperceneige“, which is the basis of the upcoming movie, Snowpiercer, starring Chris Evans.
The dystopian tale takes place after a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet. The final survivors board the SNOWPIERCER, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. The train is massive, 1, 001 carriages, with the lower classes crammed into the back, living in vile neglect as the rich and privileged live towards the front of the train in luxury. When cryptic messages incite the passengers to revolt, the train thrusts full-throttle towards disaster.
The film is currently out but pick up the graphic novels to see author Jacques Lob and artist, Jean-Marc Rochette’s original vision in all its glory… it’s much better than the film. Review next week. Here is a look at the trailer for the movie that stars: Chris Evans, Song Kang Ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, and Ed Harris.
