The wickedness of mankind has moved the Creator to destroy the world by way of the flood. Noah has been tasked with building an ark to save his family and the animals of the world. But this is not Noah's story. For darker powers have commanded the sorcerer Shrae to build his own ark and save the unnatural creatures of the world-such as the vampires, the dragons, the naga, and the manticore. But what will happen on a vessel crawling with monsters, where insidious intrigue and horrific violence are the rule of law?

    Without giving too much away, Im very interested to see how Shrae and his family will fare against all the darkness in the world. Juan Does art is amazing and accurate, especially to someone like me whos always been interested in dark creatures, I actually found myself stressing out and weighing the consequences of commandeering Noahs Ark because its either starve or hope the water subsides before Shrae and his family become dinner. Dark Ark has found its way to the top of my most anticipated list. Read Full Review

    AfterShock Comics is quickly becoming my favorite publisher with a long line of selections that fill a number of genres. Dark Ark is another smash and one that I heartily endorse. I can't wait to see how the story (and art) unfold. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Aug 8, 2017

    A million-dollar concept executed to absolute perfection, Dark Ark manages to twist the established story of Noah in a thoroughly unexpected way. Filled with interesting wrinkles, colourful characters and a surprising amount of heart and humanity, this is a series that you really need to add to your pull list as soon as possible.

    GWW - Geektomeradio Aug 18, 2017

    Written by the always exceptional Cullen Bunn and smoothly drawn by Juan Doe, Dark Ark presents us with the idea that Noah may not have been the only one to build an ark to ride out the 40 days and 40 nights deluge of the Earth. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Gregory Smith Aug 11, 2017

    Like many titles written by Cullen Bunn, this first issue leaves open many possible story directions. There are signs of familial drama and a foreshadowing of survival horror. Questions of redemption and sacrifice permeate the dialog. Most historic flood myths occur when a deity sends a flood to punish the population, and survivors earn a new understanding of the nature of the world. In this flood, there is no guarantee of survival. Dark Ark issue one concerns the journey in a claustrophobic and dangerous universe that has been condensed to fit within the hull of a ship.
