ComiXology Originals Announces In the Flood Written & Illustrated by Ray Fawkes

ComiXology Originals Announces In the Flood
An Original Graphic Novel Written and Illustrated by Ray Fawkes

A haunting story of love & loss from an Eisner Award Nominee

 Original graphic novel available December 18th

December 12, 2019 – New York, NY – ComiXology, Amazon’s premier digital comics service, announces In the Flood, a mesmerizing and experimental original graphic novel written and illustrated by Eisner Award nominee, Ray Fawkes, featuring coloring by Lee Loughridge and lettering by Thomas Mauer. In the tradition of films by David Lynch and novels by Haruki Murakami, this strange and compelling graphic novel is full of mystery and symbolism that tells the story of a couple trying to keep their troubled marriage together, while separated by an apocalyptic flood with mysterious properties. In the Flood debuts December 18th and will be available to read at no additional cost for Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and comiXology Unlimited members, and will also be available for purchase on Kindle and comiXology.

 In the Flood is a labor of love ­– a project that I was determined to do and I hope readers enjoy the set-up, the mystery, and the payoff,” says Fawkes. “This is a unique and nonlinear book, full of metaphor and symbolism, grounded by a very human, very emotional tale of love and loss.”

Fawkes, who was born and raised in Toronto, is an acclaimed writer and contemporary figurative painter whose work ranges from literary graphic novels, like the Eisner-nominated One Soul and the acclaimed Intersect, to mainstream comics, including Constantine, Batman: Eternal, and Wolverines. Fawkes is known for challenging readers and experimenting with structurally innovative storytelling, and In the Flood, his first collaboration with acclaimed colorist Lee Loughridge, is no exception.

The story incorporates Fawkes’ love of cards—he’s a skilled card player who once very nearly decided to try his hand at professional gambling—with illusion.

Thomas Mauer’s expressive lettering combined with Loughridge’s gorgeous color illuminate the relationship of Mike and Clara, as Fawkes weaves a surreal and haunting horror story that demands a close read.

“When I met with Ray and asked him what project he was most into and excited about, and he showed me the nearly 40 pages he'd been working on. I knew then, that was the book I wanted to share with readers,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content. “From this book’s unique storytelling, to its stunning coloring and lettering, In the Flood is deserving of attention, and we are proud to make it available across all our services."

Here’s what people a saying about In the Flood:

“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 (The Question, Underwater Welder)

“What a great book. Ray is always one to watch and the art here is brought to new vibrant life with Loughridge’s colouring . . . 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 of 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)
Part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive content, In the Flood will be available upon release, at no additional cost, for members of Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and comiXology Unlimited, and for purchase on Kindle and comiXology. Prime Reading offers all Amazon Prime members a rotating selection of over a thousand top Kindle books, magazines, short works, comic books, children’s books, and more – all at no additional cost.
