“Written by Scott A. Ford and drawn in the author’s unique style, Ark Land is an entertaining graphic novel with an interesting story line. Many consider the so-called ‘comic book novel’ is geared mainly for the younger generation because it consists of pictures with little dialogue. Those skeptics are invited to read Ark Land and prepare to be surprised. The broad strokes and scope of the drawings as well as the nuances in each panel prove very quickly that this graphic novel’s reach extends more to the adult reader than ones of a much younger age. Relying more on visuals than writing, Ark Land’s cast of characters are well-delineated as well as fascinating, and Kairn’s confrontation with the ark-worshippers hints at far-reaching consequences.”
