Overview

Snowpiercer Vol.2 is the second volume of the enthralling and thought-provoking post-apocalyptic graphic novel series that inspired the critically acclaimed movie starring Chris Evans (Captain America/Fantastic Four). Originally published in French, this marks the first time that Snowpiercer will be available in English.
 
In a harsh, uncompromisingly cold future where Earth has succumbed to treacherously low temperatures, the last remaining members of humanity travel on a train known as Snowpiercer while the outside world remains encased in ice.

The occupants aboard the Snowpiercer believed themselves to be the last humans alive, yet they soon learn that they are not alone. There is another train that could potentially spell destruction for the passengers of the Snowpiercer as it carves a trail through the endlessly freezing terrain. 

This second train houses a small band of people that are willing to brave the relentless cold in search of the truth and discover what is left of the world by any means necessary.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Rises above the clichés" - Miami Herald

"The Explorers is fascinating. The world it creates is really worth experiencing, and while I expect Bong Joon-Ho's film focuses on The Escape, I would love to see him tackle this." - Flixist

"This is a powerful and penetrating look at Western culture and an excellent follow up to the original series." - Fanboy Comics 

"Four Out of Five Stars." - SciFi Mafia

"The black-and-white artwork sets the tone perfectly." - One Metal 

"A worthy sequel to the classic original." - Project Fandom

"Jacques Lob passed just after the first volume and Benjamin Legrand stepped in and did an awesome job, along with original contributor Jean-Marc Rochette. I’m pretty sure Lob would be very pleased with how the novel continued." - Horror Movies

"Like WALKING DEAD, this is apocalypse done right!" - Ain't It Cool

"One of the greatest sci-fi comics ever written!"
- Comics Beat

Meet the Author

Jacques Lob, winner of the Grand Prix de la ville d'Angoulême award, was a Franco-Belgian comic book author, best known for his Superdupont series. He began his career as an editorial cartoonist, before an editor suggested he focused on his writing, which bore rich fruit across a number of genres. He passed away in 1990.

Benjamin Legrand is the author of numerous thriller novels, screenplays, and comic scripts. As well as his own original works, he is well known as the French translator for the works of such authors as Tom Wolfe, Paul Cleave and Nelson DeMille. After Jacques Lob's death in 1990, Legrand continued the Snowpiercer series with a two-part sequel, collected by Titan in a single second volume.
 
Jean-Marc Rochette is a painter, illustrator and cartoonist. He has worked across a variety of projects and genres, from science fiction comics to children's cartoons - including adaptations of Voltaire's Candide and Homer's Odyssey - but Snowpiercer remains the work by which he is most popularly known.
