David Brin's THE LIFE EATERS

THE LIFE EATERS description and bonus information

THOR MEETS CAPTAIN AMERICA, ILLUSTRATED

Just released: my huge new graphic novel, The Life Eaters. DC/Wildstorm is calling this work 'the biggest thing since The Watchmen!' Based on my Hugo nominated novella "Thor Meets Captain America," it is by far the darkest work I've written.

This bold work asks: what might the Nazis have really been up to? Perhaps a hidden agenda that nobody knows about even to this day? The theme is explored with stirring imagery (by the great Scott Hampton!).

The French, who love graphic novels almost as much as they adore pastry, have voted the translated, large format version of The Life Eaters a finalist for "best first album." Its title in France? D-Day, le jour du désastre. See also an interview (in French) in the January 2005 edition of the French magazine Phenix.

Later, I served in roles befitting a trusted warrior--leading units of American draftees into battle... rooting out cells of stubborn resistance... and using clever American technologies to help extend the realm my masters controlled... where they could feed their burning hunger...

AGH! We must EJECT!

'As foretold, a chosen few will shelter in the arms of Yggdrasil... while the rest--gods, giants, men--all perish below.'

It went on, each envoy confessing past fault, absolving others. Yet, I thought, how odd. Nobody cast blame on whoever DESIGNED this world... made its rules--culminating in today's hell.
