Snowpiercer by writer Olivier Bocquet and the artist Jean-Marc Rochette is a gorgeous thought provoking SF story about a world where the last of humanity is living on a train speeding across a frozen landscape. It was famously adapted into a film starring Chris Evans that in its overseas version was as smart as the comic…but it was also dumbed down a bit for the US. Because we’re dumb, I guess.
Luckily the comics version is continuing, with Snowpiercer 3: Terminus, coming out from Titan on February 17th. With the Icebreaker train stopped, the remains of humanity are searching for a glimmer of hope…
Laura Sneddon has an excellent comparison of the two versions of the story here.
