Mark Allard-Will
With Ark Land, Scott A. Ford takes us in to a fantastical, albeit bizarre, alternate Earth, where Arks, massive Alien Spacecraft void of intelligent life, have been floating in orbit for the better part of a century and routinely crash to Earth; where Scavengers, such as our protagonist Kairn, rush to strip the wreckages of Alien technology for sale to Ark Worshipers and collectors. Towns grow up around Ark Temples and Alien flora and fauna has interwoven itself with that of Earth.

The illustrations were on point; however, the story lacks depth and the font of the comic is god-awful and hard to read...

Bellyups, and Mountain Mantises, and Gnarles, oh my!

(Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Edelweiss.)

Kairn lives in Ark Land, an alternate (or future?) version of earth. The main point of divergence between our worlds? Well, that would be the alien arks that float above Ark Land.

I received this book as an advanced reader's copy and I was in love with the colors and the artwork associated with this graphic novel.

It was ok. I picked this book up because it was by a local-ish author and because of the colors. There is so much more that could've been done with the plot and character development, that I felt it was lacking. Kairn was an interesting protagonist to begin with, but when she never developed, I lost interest. Interesting concept, not a wonderful execution.

I met Scott at Fan Expo this weekend and had a nice chat about art. I bought this graphic novel and really enjoyed the creativity and adventure of the book. My kids are now reading it as well. Wonderful colours as well!
At first I really liked it, but then the ending felt rushed and anti-climactic.

Beautifully illustrated and an immersive world, but could have more depth to the plot and characters.

I love that we have so many original stories in graphic novel format these days. Sure, I may not love all of them - but we have such variety that we really are spoiled. And while Ark Land never connected with me, I was glad to have a chance to read it.

Story: Kairn survives in the moors, picking up debris from arks that fell out of orbit and crash landed on the planet. The arks contained specimens of different creatures
