NYCC 2011: Preview For THE DIVIDE Graphic Novel

Hey peeps!  New York Comic Con is wide open right now and we have some more cool treats for you.  Anchor Bay will release the cool looking horror movie THE DIVIDE in theaters on January 13th.  The movie has a companion graphic novel and we have a sneak peak at it for you and all the details you need.

Based on the post-apocalyptic thriller THE DIVIDE, THE DIVIDE Limited Edition Graphic Novel tells the story of Little Wendy, a young girl who, along with eight other strangers, survives a catastrophic nuclear attack.

To hide from the revolving door of men in her mother Marilyn’s life, Little Wendy takes cover in her imaginary world, spending most of her time alone in her room playing with her stuffed rabbit, until a nuclear attack forces Little Wendy, her mother, and several other tenants of their apartment building to seek shelter in the bunker-like basement downstairs. Little Wendy is trapped for days on end with her mother and the strangers until one night, armed men in Hazmat suits raid the sealed-off basement. At first, they appear to be a search-and-rescue team but they kidnap Wendy from her mother’s arms. The last thing Little Wendy hears is her own screams as the stuffed rabbit falls from her fingers.

With only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door and little hope of rescue, the remaining group begins to descend into unhinged madness, each turning on one another with physical and psychological violence. Marilyn’s sex appeal is used against her and she becomes a victim of sexual-psycho torment.

Meanwhile, Little Wendy is taken to a medical facility and put in an incubator alongside other seized children and put into a dream state; happily unaware of her mother’s fate and seemingly protected from harm…or is she?

In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers—all tenants of a New York high rise apartment—escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomesmore depraved than the next.  While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
