First look at Titan Comics’ “Snowpiercer: Extinction”
This September, Titan Comics will be releasing Snowpiercer: Extinction, a prequel to the graphic novels that inspired the film and television series Snowpiercer. I’ve not read the books, I must admit, but I have seen the film, and it’s one of those great science-fiction tales that truly stays with you, long after it’s over. It will be interesting to see what the television series will do with the concept, but in the meantime, check out some interiors for the Extinction graphic novel below.

SNOWPIERCER THE PREQUEL:
THE SAGA THAT INSPIRED THE UPCOMING TV SHOW CONTINUES WITH A BRAND NEW PREQUEL COMIC STORY FROM TITAN
Titan Comics are thrilled to be publishing Snowpiercer: Extinction, a brand-new prequel graphic novel set before the extinction incident that led to the events of the original Snowpiercer graphic novel trilogy.
Titan’s next instalment in the critically-acclaimed and award-winning Snowpiercer graphic novel saga will be released in September 2019, written by Matz (Triggerman, The Assignment), with art by the original Snowpiercer graphic novel artist Jean-Marc Rochette. Debuting alongside Titan’s new graphic novel, the Snowpiercer franchise will also welcome the hotly-anticipated TV adaptation.
Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the TV adaptation of Snowpiercercenters on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned in this riveting television adaptation. The TV series, starring Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind) and Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, Black-ish), will air in the U.S. on TNT and internationally on Netflix (excluding China).
The series is a co-production of Tomorrow Studios (a partnership between Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios) and Turner's Studio T, along with CJ Entertainment. The series is executive produced by Tomorrow Studios' Marty Adelstein (Hanna, Cowboy Bebop) and Becky Clements (Good Behavior, Hanna, Last Man Standing). Showrunner Graeme Manson (Orphan Black), Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange) and the original film's Bong Joon Ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi are also executive producers on the series.
Titan’s first groundbreaking series of Snowpiecer graphic novels, Snowpiercer: Escape (ISBN: 9781782761334) Snowpiercer: The Explorers (ISBN: 9781782761365), and Snowpiercer: Terminus (ISBN: 9781782767152) inspired the award-winning 2014 film, starring Chris Evans (Captain America), Tilda Swinton (Doctor Strange, We Need To Talk About Kevin), and John Hurt (Hellboy, V For Vendetta, Alien, Doctor Who).
