Summary

If there is one constant throughout most of Earth's historical nations, cultures, and religions, it is the threat and the destruction of the Great Flood. In the wake of the recent Indian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and alarm over global warming, the award-winning creators of "The Lone and Level Sands" return to plumb the depths of the world's great myths with this graphic novel exploring how this legendary fear may be more relevant now than ever before. Like Noah, sea-bound Ziusudra and other heroes across time must strive against the coming Floods and the baffling will of the gods.

Author Biography

Emerging from the field of comic book academia, writer A. David Lewis presents articles on the comic book medium at scholarly conferences across the country as well as in such publications as The International Journal of Comic Art for which he is a member of the Editorial Board. In 2002, Lewis debuted his own title, the dark suspense anthology Mortal Coils, which went on to be a winner of the 2003 Cinescape Literary Genre Competition. Published through his Caption Box imprint and then ASP, THE LONE AND LEVEL SANDS, Lewis’s 2005 graphic novel with mpMann, won the Howard E. Day Prize and was nominated for three Harvey Awards. His second Archaia title, SOME NEW KIND OF SLAUGHTER, has been hailed by ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY as “a new, modern myth for our environmentally challenged times.” Currently, Lewis is completing his Ph.D. at Boston University while both teaching undergraduates and co-editing the GRAVEN IMAGES: RELIGION IN COMIC BOOKS & GRAPHIC NOVELS essay collection from Continuum International Publishing
