Jon picked up a French graphic novel a few weeks ago called Niourk. It was published by Dark Horse Comics.
He went to the comic shop, saw it sitting on the shelf, flip through the pages and it left such an impression on him that he immediately bought it that day.
He took it home and devoured it. He brought it to me and wanted me to read it and was very excited about making this a future topic for a podcast. Well, the future is now! We will be talking about the post apocalyptic world of Niourk.
The original story was based on a French novel written by Stefan Wul and published in 1957. The story would be picked up by Olivier Vatine and turned into a 3 issue comic in the early 2000s. Dark Horse took those issues and printed them in a treasury format of a graphic novel in January for 2018. Does a 60 year old story hold up in 2018? That is the focus of out podcast today.
We review the comic and compare it to similar stories that have since been published since 1957.
