- The story of Noah and the Flood has been told for millennia, studied for centuries, and debated for decades. Now, Image Comics adds a fresh voice to the conversation. Noah, a new graphic novel written by Academy-Award- and Golden-Globe-nominated writer and director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) and Ari Handel, and drawn by Niko Henrichon (Pride of Baghdad), offers a fascinating exploration of this eternal story. Drawing from myth, history, and unchanging truths of the human experience, Noah introduces a new perspective on the Biblical patriarch, his family, and the ill-fated world they inhabit. - This lushly illustrated graphic novel is now available as a limited deluxe edition, signed and numbered by the creators. Strictly limited to 300 copies, the Noah special edition is oversized, with covers and slipcase bound in white linen and beautifully gold-foil-stamped with an elegant, minimalist design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous & Compelling Even if Not Biblically Accurate This is based on the movie (which I have not seen) and uses the Biblical story of Noah and the Flood as its inspiration. A great deal of licence has been taken with the Biblical history but then I had been prepared for that and had taken the attitude that this would be a fantasy retelling. So ultimately I wasn't bothered with it not being accurate and I'm not even going to go into comparing it with the Bible. I really enjoyed the tale presented here and found the art absolutely gorgeous. Noah comes across as a powerful character and the story was intense and emotional. The only thing I didn't like was that they turned this into an environmental story where Noah struggles with whether the new world is supposed to be for the animals alone and that he and his immediate family are to be the end of mankind. Noah thinks that God's plan (sorry God is never mentioned, he is called the Creator) may be to exterminate mankind altogether. This is about as far from the real reason of the Flood as one can get. The rainbow was left out as well and it's significance and God's covenant are the most precious part of the Flood for me personally, so I felt cheated of that ending. OK, so I did end up comparing it more than I had intended to but for what this story actually *is*, I did like it very much and found it a compelling read.
