Two arks sail the flooded world. On one, Noah tends the animals of the natural world. On the other, the sorcerer Shrae stands watch over the monsters that haunt the night. But in order for Shrae's charges to thrive in the World That Waits, Noah's Ark must also survive. And when Noah's vessel encounters trouble, Shrae's monsters must work in secrecy to ensure that their would-be prey lives to find land.
From writer Cullen Bunn (X-Men Blue, Deadpool, Venom) and artist Juan Doe (AMERICAN MONSTER, WORLD READER) comes a sinister tale of biblical propor-tions that HAD to be told at AfterShock Comics.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 9, 2018

    Dark Ark takes some awesome and terrifying turns as it begins its second arc. Shrae has survived a vampire mutiny aboard his ship but now has to keep the humans on Noah's ark safe or his entire family will perish. That's a pretty tough job when there are even scarier monsters swimming beneath the waves. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes May 7, 2018

    This is a beautifully blasphemous book that will have you cheering for the nightmares that are trying to avoid the wrath of God. The story is epic, surprising, and devilishly good fun. The visuals are a match to the scope of the story, making man and monster impressive. One's horror collection is not complete unlessDark Ark is on their shelf. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 2, 2018

    After a good hiatus, Dark Ark is back and I couldn't be more thrilled. Bunn delivers more background in this installment for Shrae and his family and it has me hoping that more flashback storyline material is coming to give it all just a bit more weight. I really like the elements we get there and I'm intrigued by what's going on with Noah's ark and how badly things might be getting there. We've seen the dark ark struggle itself and it's no surprise we'll see Noah struggle. This is a fantastic book from top to bottom and I just adore practically every page here from Juan Doe. The character designs, the placement of the view, the colors, it's all so tightly specific and creates such an engaging atmosphere that I want so much more of it. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall May 2, 2018

    Bunn and Doe are clearly enjoying playing with the unexplored parts of this story. To be fair, many of the stories from the earliest part of the Bible are so spare that they leave you with more questions than answers. This story has been so entertaining because Bunn and Doe are willing to play in the grey areas. Read Full Review

    The main antagonist of this issue is a bit of a letdown, but hopefully, next issue can deliver some meaningful context and change that. Read Full Review
