As the floodwaters rise, Shrae's ark full of fiendish beasts continues on its seemingly endless voyage. But below deck, the matriarch of the naga clan has been viciously slain, and the monstrous voyagers are quick to point clawed fingers to blame each other for the murder. As tensions rise among the monsters, Shrae's very human family is at risk of becoming victims themselves.
From writer Cullen Bunn (X-Men Blue, Deadpool, Venom) and artist Juan Doe (AMERICAN MONSTER, WORLD READER) comes a sinister tale of biblical proportions that HAD to be told at AfterShock Comics.

    Its often the case with high-concept stories that the writer doesnt actually bother to include any real story, happy to let their headline-grabbing idea to all the heavy lifting. Thankfully, in the case of Dark Ark, Cullen Bunn has simply used the premise as a backdrop to what is fast becoming a tense, gripping ensemble drama with some utterly mesmerising artwork. Don't miss the boat on this one, folks. You have been warned. Read Full Review

    Dark Ark got my attention easily with the first issue and the second one really does cement my interest in it. Cullen Bunn has something that's intriguing and tense as it feels like a powder keg ready to blow and that's something that Juan Doe brings to life wonderfully panel after panel. I've enjoyed his artwork before but this feels like he's operating on a whole other level and coming into it with a kind of creative freedom that's just taking it to a new height. This issue ramps things up, explores more of the creature dynamics, and sets in motion more of the chaos that's going to follow. I can't wait to have more and at the same time I'm fearful of how it's going to end, and how quickly we'll end up at that point. Very recommended. Read Full Review

    Dark Ark is a relatively simple tale, which will require all of Bunn's skills to retain reader interest.The monsters and demons do offer an interestingconfluence of intentions. Some may seem honourable, saving the humans in the hold when their own kind left them to drown; others just want to eat them I am sure thatBunn is up to the task, even if the threat teased at the end of book, may offer another conflict which hopefully will allow those subplots to come to fruition, with Doe's art capturing the action in all its demonic glory.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 25, 2017

    Dark Ark has not only impressed me but its exceeded my expectations creating a Biblical horror series that's also a whodunnit. A great combination that has me sucked in waiting to see what's next and who the killer is. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Oct 28, 2017

    Dark Ark grabbed me with the first issue. This is where it tightens its grip. The stakes are raised considerably as we see just how quick the monsters are to violence. We may have started with one corpse, but it is not the only one by the end of this chapter and I'm sure there will be plenty more before the series is through. Read Full Review
