There is a whopping amount of books being announced currently at the Image Comics Expo 2013. You can expect them to be sending out official details throughout the week, but one piece of business that cannot wait is the fact that famed director Darren Aronofsky is bringing his book with Niko Henrichon to Image Comics.

Bleeding Cool reports that the series consists of four separate graphic novels, two of which have already been published in France and Germany. Those will be translated to English by Aronofsky, followed by the remaining two books.

Here’s a look at what you’re in store for:

And here’s the solicitation the series when he was published in Europe: “It was a world without hope, a world with no rain and no crops, dominated by warlords and their barbarian hordes. In this cruel world, Noah was a good man. Seasoned fighter, mage and healer but he only wanted peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah was beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually he began to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He had decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gave Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth.”

    neither the trailer nor this article explain what these stories are so judging from the photo above i’m guessing this is a supernatural take on the bible legend with fantasy creatures on an ark

    At least it’s not a Bible re-telling. It only interests me because Darren is directing. I absolutely love his films, with Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream being in my top 5 films of all time. However, I didn’t like The Fountain, and this has a similar vibe :S

    I’m hoping for great things though! :)
