AfterShock has announced Dark Ark, a new series from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Juan Doe, launching in September.
Dark Ark explores a new twist on the Biblical story of Noah's Ark, in which a sorcerer named Shrae works to save the Earth's mythical monsters from the flood with his own ark.
"Dark Ark is story about monsters - and I mean almost every type of monster you can imagine - struggling to live together in very close quarters," Bunn explained. "These are creatures of nightmare and legend, and they don't get along at all. It's a murder mystery. It's packed with intrigue and treachery and double-crossing. It's the story of one man's quest for redemption... while helping to preserve the worst beasts in the world. And it's even got a little romance... some heartwarming, some very disturbing."

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?
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.
