THE DIVINE by Asaf Hanuka, Tomer Hanuka & Boaz Lavie! | #GraphicNovelWeek

Welcome to day two of GNW! I'd love if you'd share what comics & graphic novels YOU'RE reading, either in the comments, or on Twitter @TheBookRat, with the hashtag #GraphicNovelWeek!

Also, I recorded footage of the artwork and totally forgot to put it in, so sorry about that! I'll save it for the next Rewind and show you the gorgeous/gruesome art there. =D (Also also: sorry for the slight blurriness; get in frame, Misty!)

THE DIVINE by Asaf Hanuka, Tomer Hanuka & Boaz Lavie
Get It | Add It
Magical Realism/Fantasy, 160 pages
Expected publication: July 14th 2015 by First Second
Mark's out of the military, these days, with his boring, safe civilian job doing explosives consulting. But you never really get away from war. So it feels inevitable when his old army buddy Jason comes calling, with a lucrative military contract for a mining job in an obscure South-East Asian country called Quanlom. They'll have to operate under the radar--Quanlom is being torn apart by civil war, and the US military isn't strictly supposed to be there.

With no career prospects and a baby on the way, Mark finds himself making the worst mistake of his life and signing on with Jason. What awaits him in Quanlom is going to change everything.
What awaits him in Quanlom is weirdness of the highest order: a civil war led by ten-year-old twins wielding something that looks a lot like magic, leading an army of warriors who look a lot like gods.
What awaits him in Quanlom is an actual goddamn dragon.

From world-renowned artists Asaf and Tomer Hanuka (twins, whose magic powers are strictly confined to pen and paper) and Boaz Lavie, The Divine is a fast-paced, brutal, and breathlessly beautiful portrait of a world where ancient powers vie with modern warfare and nobody escapes unscathed.
