QuoteA train with 1001 carriages circles the earth, carrying the last remaining survivors of an event that has made the planet essentially uninhabitable. And you thought the polar vortex was bad. In this tale, the entire globe is encased in ice and snow, and temperatures are so low that death comes nearly instantly to anyone who dares to find themselves outside (this is known as the "white death"). Welcome to "Snowpiercer." While Bong Joon-ho's film adaptation continues to await a release date, your next best bet might be to pick up the Titan Comics translation of the graphic novel. Penned by Jacques Lob, "Snowpiercer Volume 1: The Escape" essentially sets the stage of what's to come, and while that might indicate a story with little narrative pulse, as it waits to explode in part two, you'd be mistaken.
