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? In the Flood is the disturbing, surreal graphic novel by acclaimed, groundbreaking creator Ray Fawkes, author of One Soul, Intersect, Gotham by Midnight, Black Hammer ’45, and more. Collects In the Flood from the ComiXology original digital series in print for the first time. “With In The Flood, Ray Fawkes continues to experiment with comics as a language, much as he did with the brilliant One Soul. But now he adds layers of mystery and almost Lynchian genre exploration to tell a story of lost love and desperate people clinging to hope in the face growing darkness. Brilliant, challenging and beautiful.”–Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer)“What a great book. Ray is always one to watch and the art here is brought to new vibrant life with Loughridge’s coloring . . . highly recommended.”–Jock (Batman, The Losers)“As compelling and disturbing as watching the water level inch up your body. There’s nothing you can do to resist.”–Kieron Gillen (The Wicked & The Divine)“We often hear of creators elevating the comics medium, Fawkes seems to have forgotten to ever come down. In The Flood is at once sentimental and unsettling, the kind of story that demands attention even after its final panel.”–Michael Conrad (Tremor Dose)“A beautiful, poetic and intricate puzzle-box of a story, and one I’ll be unlocking for some time to come.”–Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk)
