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.


  1. I was curious how much less dumb the international movie was and started trying to figure out what was different…but it turns out the Weinstein cut was overruled, and the cut we all saw in the US was the same as the international version. Everyone saw the same dumb movie.
