Dark Horse Comics has announced that In The Flood, the surreal 2019 Comixology Original graphic novel from creator Ray Fawkes, will be released in print next year. The graphic novel is written and illustrated by Fawkes, with colors by Lee Loughridge and letters by Thomas Mauer.
Here’s how Comixology describes In The Flood:
Trapped and separated by an apocalyptic rainfall, Mike and Clara, devoted husband and wife, have sworn to find their way back to one another. But they quickly discover that the rain – and their predicament – is not what it seems. Can they figure out the grand trick that’s being played on them and overcome it to reunite?
Fawkes is the Eisner and Harvey-nominated creator of books including One Soul, One Line, Intersect, and more. In addition to creator-owned work, Fawkes has also worked for DC Comics, and co-wrote the Black Hammer ’45 series for Dark Horse. He expressed to The Beat his enthusiasm over In The Flood finding a print home at the publisher:
“I’m thrilled to see IN THE FLOOD coming to print! So much of the creation of the book was a tactile process – from holding and shuffling cards endlessly for reference to drawing out the dark, expressive pages I was visualizing. Being able to hold the book in my hands and bring this intense experience to more readers is a dream come true.”
In The Flood is the latest Comixology Original graphic novel to see a print release from Dark Horse Comics. Previous digital titles that have come to print from Dark Horse include The Black Ghost, Afterlift, Tremor Dose, Crema, and more.
In The Flood is available digitally via Comixology now. The print edition will arrive with a cover price of $19.99 on Tuesday, March 15th, 2022. It is available for preorder from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop now.
